Well then, I guess you're entitled to your thoroughly wrong opinion. :D

And you used the word "himbo"!


Johnny Storm is the ultimate himbo!

If liking Hickman and Young Liars is "right," then I'm more than happy to be wrong. :P

Ben's changing back into the Thing was another laughable part of this issue. It's timing couldn't be more predictable.

I so wish the group had picked Age of X this week.

I love Hickman's Secret Warriors and S.H.I.E.L.D. books but I couldn't get into this before. Even when I skimmed through the issues at the store there was nothing in them to draw me into buying them. But I decided to give this bagged book a chance to see if it was worth revisiting the whole run.

Nope. Not that its a bad book, it just felt mediocre. To give each subplot a concise review:

The Reed story was rushed to the point the Maestro appeared and disappeared as fast as he appeared for no other reason than to give a massive "screw you" to the protagonists.

The Sue Storm story went from Namor killing the old Atlanteans to them saying "Dude, you translated the old language! In our new language Sue is our queen rather than a sacrifice!". Umm, right....

The Ben/Johnny/Kids vs the Annihilation Wave AKA the death scene: Underwhelming considering the build-up. The death wasn't really shocking with gore like say...Ares was. Johnny was just covered in swarms of Annihilus bugs and we cut to a scene of Ben consoling the kids. Kind of weak and the lack of an actual body took away from the impact. The best story of the book but it didn't pack the punch this months hyped death was supposed to.

Artwise, Epting was solid as always. But the story was a mashup of varying quality shorts.

Story: 4
Art: 8
Overall:4



And for the record? Namor > Aquaman

I don't know who this Herald person is... but he sounds like a fine outstanding young man.

Aquaman is King of the seas, and as of now calls on undead sea creatures to do his bidding... He uses a fucking zombie shark to kill... KILL terrorists and then crushes their boat with a Kraken, which is also Zombie class.

^ this alone makes Aquaman 100 times cooler than poor LAMEor... O, im sorry, Namor. <---- wet Legolas

DId Venom cry after Namor did that? It looked like it may have hurt.

Lets compare that to this, Justice! Aquaman style

Aquaman: 1

You neglected the next page which featured Aquaman crying and being generally emo over the zombie shark negating all coolness and replacing it with bucketloads of emo mascara :P

Apparently there is no pick for next week. BlueStreak already started the thread.

We get to pick our reviews individually. :)
