This issue was Jonathan Hickman in pure ‘setting stuff up for the future’ mode, and it was fine, but it’s not exactly satisfying to read. I will say that the Wakanda/Atlantis War really getting underway felt like more of a complete bit of story to me than the other threads, and it’s those sequences that I enjoyed the most here. The rest? We shall have to see.
You’ve got Iron Man and Mister Fantastic worrying about the Incursions and hiring some mystery person to help them out. I literally have no idea who this person could be, and I find I don’t really care. There’s also Namor plotting something with Black Swan, which could be interesting and finally, whatever’s going on with The Inhumans.

This all looks like set-up for whatever’s going to happen in Infinity which sets up Inhumanity. It’s set-up for more set-up, which is just weird. There was an excellent article on The Outhouse recently about how Marvel was stupid for revealing Inhumanity before Infinity had happened, but I actually think this issue showed it was a good thing. If I had read this issue without knowing that The Inhumans were about to become a big deal and were IMPORTANT then I would have enjoyed those sequences a lot less. I know you should read comics for their own quality level, not for how ‘important’ they are to a larger continuity, but sometimes I can’t help it. I know to be on the look-out for Inhumans stuff, and that made these scenes that could have seemed worthless, noteworthy. Especially since Hickman went to the Black Bolt speaking well twice, which is too much. Black Bolt speaking should be an event, not something that happens in two consecutive scenes! Stupid Hickman!

What else? Oh yeah, at the end, some strange aliens showed up to visit each of the Illuminati. What’s the deal with these guys? Are they something to do with the Incursions? Or are they Infinity-related? Hickman’s problem is that he’s building to so many different things that it’s not apparent which one of those stories any new development is linked to. Unless… they are all the same story. Mind = Blown. Mike Deodato’s art was good as always, even with uneven issues like this, his art holds things together.

It's probably Infinity related.

Coolest scene in the book was where Stark and Uatu were standing in front of the fallen Living Tribunal. Tells you how bad things are gonna get with Infinity and the Builders.

Not sure I like the concept of something that can do that to the Living Tribunal.

Loved the Inhuman stuff though.

Those aliens are Thanos's generals for Infinity.

I liked the stuff with Black Bolt and Medusa, but I have to say that everything else about this issue didn't really hold my interest. The problem is that it was all set up and not much else. There really wasn't a story between this issue's covers, only parts of one.

Was it ever revealed what took out the Living Tribunal.

Was he dead? Did he stay dead?

That's what I've been wondering about. Was that scene in NA reviewing something that happened in GOTG, which I have admittedly haven't kept up with?

So far, no answer to that.
