Fear Itself: Youth In Revolt #4 (Boy Scout Spoilers)

This was great, it turned what is basically 22 pages of a fight into a commentary on the nature of heroism and whether or not they should kill. Gravity Vs. Hardball is a fight for the ages, and was wonderfully drawn by Norton. It’s rare in superhero fights these days that you feel every punch and kick, but I felt in this issue you did, especially when each blow was causing an Earthquake. Man, Gravity done fucked up, and McKeever is very brave doing this to his own character. The other plotlines didn’t get much play this issue, but Prodigy is continuing down a dark path, let’s hope he doesn’t fall off the wagon like Tony Stark, or Fear Itself will go down as the recovering alcoholic’s least favourite event.

Yeah it was a good issue. I loved the Hardball?Gravity fight for the exact reasons you did. The striking thing for me was in a certain way, even though he physically won, Gravity lost the fight because he was on the verge of becoming that which he was speaking out against.
