Beautiful art in a craptastic story.
We've known about the Mighty for ages and that was it - a few pages? Talk about anti-climatic.
Cap uses Thor's hammer - this would have been cool if he hadn't already done it (and nothing will ever top Superman holding it).
Thor's dead - this has been discussed for quite a while too.
Everything else was just... not good.
Cap's suicide run to open the book was poorly out of character. He was out there fighting gods with a pea shooter. Even if he was trying to buy time for the others, those efforts were utterly useless and doomed to fail. It gained nothing - hence suicide.
What incredible luck that the heroes and Wolverine just happened to be the groups perfectly geared for the weapons made. What if Hawkeye or Strange died - Tony's toys would be a bit useless wouldn't they? And in the end, with the exception of Thor's sword, what good were the Mighty? Sure Hawkeye's let's him never miss but he does that anyway. What did Spideytron's weapon do? And I laughed out loud at Iron Fisttron's 'Chain Fighter Bust-a-Move #9a-6G.2'.
Now I can't stand Wolverine in the slightest - but what's his deal against Cap? His 'the hell with him' bit makes no sense.
Odin closes off Asgard space in one panel and in the next Stark gets to visit Sfartelfeim?
I also love how they intersperse the story with all these televised scenes of fire fighters and rescue efforts finally starting up and how Joe Public finally begins to lift himself up. Very inspirational - until you notice that TV reporters have been working the whole time, as have their camermen, the guys in the truck, the people working sat the station, the workers at the electrical plants pumping the juice for the story to go out, etc etc etc. So basically what these scenes are saying is that it's the firemen and other rescuers that had been cowering in fear with everyone else getting along well enough to go to work.
What happened to the 'worthy'? Did they just got to leave (as two Hulk epilogues indicate) or were they taken in (the Sin epilogue)?
And Mjolnir? They're going to burn it and be done with it? We just saw Cap can use it so why not give it to him?
And the epilogues?
ONE WEEK (Marvel time) and Sin is already free? What the fuck?
Hulk wants to be left alone - gotcha.
Hulk goes to the Manhattan, the most populated city in America - don't gotcha.
I'm beginning to think it's not Event Fatigue that's the problem - it's the Events themselves.
Beautiful art though.
