Apart from the sleazy cover, this was a very good issue. I’m really enjoying Mark’s new take on super-hero problem solving, he’s moved beyond the ‘a fight will solve everything’ approach and his interactions with Universa here were refreshing. I just hope he doesn’t start to solve every problem with diplomacy, as that would get a little dull. The rest of the issue was a little bitty, with several vignettes that didn’t move anywhere fast, but it was enjoyable nonetheless. I’m most intrigued by what’s going on with Robot and Monster Girl, what the heck happened in the Flaxan empire? Was that mentioned in Guarding The Globe? Because I’m behind on that one.
