The shit really hits the fan in this issue, as Phoenix-Namor attacks Wakanda and tears it up. The action sequences in this issue were excellent, Adam Kubert delivers some his best work in a while, and to me, this issue was reaching almost Walt Simonson-levels of bombast. The guy’s a Marvel (and X-Men) legend so it’s great to see him return to these characters. The events of this issue were epic really, and I think it was a good choice to have Namor be the Phoenix who snaps, he’s not exactly a hero at the best of times, so you don’t have the whole ‘out of character’ debate that you’d have if it was Cyclops leading the charge. Plus there’s the added element of him being a former Avenger. By the end of this issue, Namor gets depowered by the Scarlet Witch, and we’re down to a Phoenix Four, but they’re just even more powerful. Let’s hope that whatever the Avengers are planning in K’Un Lun works. It’s also very cool that Professor X is back in the mix and going against Scott, that should be a very interesting plotline.
