So Borderlands can be played solo? I just read the description saying it was a 4 player online whatsamagig and blew it off. The hour I spent on Marvel Pinball yesterday was the first time I've played a game in months. I use my PS3 as Sony intended it, to watch illegally pirated television shows.

I do not read enough corporate funny books to get that reference, Punchy. Please explain.

The Ghost is an Iron Man villain and current member of the Thunderbolts, who's raison d'etre is bringing down corporations like Stark Industries and Roxxon.

Thunderbolts #151 was a spotlight issue on him, well worth getting, he was also in Iron Man: Disassembled.

I remember him in IM:D, but Fraction focused more on 'Osborne has sent him to kill Stark' than he did 'Ghost is out to take down corporate America' in which case Ghost is my new favorite Marvel hero. Sounds like a bunch of BS that he's a TBolt. He is obviously misunderstood and should get a Big Shot book to bring his anti-corporate agenda to the masses. Hopefully that's the unannounced Ellis/McKelvie project.

Ok, so that was good but I have no clue what the fuck was going on and who half of the characters were. The art made it easy and extremely difficult to figure out who was who and what side they were on...like I said good but over all very confusing.

I did because I'll probably give it a 5 too if I get around to reviewing it before the PS3 goal is reached.

That's the equivalent to a negative infinity on the Punchy scale.

So...

I've read this issue. I've read this entire series. I have no idea what the point of it all is, or what's going on. Here's why:

I don't know who the fuck half the characters are. In this issue. In the whole series. I've read Marvel comics for most of my life. I've read a lot of them. But I have no fucking idea who half of these people are. Why are there like 10 different leaders of Hydra? Who the fuck are all the zodiac people besides Van Strucker, Nick Fury, and Dum Dum Dugan? How many Furies are there? Do they age? DId Nick Fury die in the past in this issue? He got shot in the head right? What was the point of the Arise, Serpentor, Arise style scavenger hunt in this issue? What were all those devices everyone was going after (besides MacGuffin devices)? Why would all of those people work together so easily, because Leonardo DaVinci told them to? None of it really makes sense.

This comic makes me feel stupid, but was somehow an enjoyable read anyway. I feel like this is my first issue of the thing despite reading the entire series and SHIELD.

Score: ????

Off the top of my head, there was the leader of the Hand, whoever was the original Kraken, Jake Fury and that Russian guy.
