So it wasn’t a fake-out! The ‘Circle Of Four’ actually did die! But of course, since they were in Hell when they bought it, they can easily be brought back to life by Mephisto. It was pretty obvious that the various scenarios we saw in the issue were false, but they were interesting nonetheless, just like the Antitheses shone some light on each hero’s character, so did their paradises. So we saw that Venom still wants to be Spider-Man, that Alejandra wants to know her mother, and that Red Hulk wants to be accepted back into the army. Interesting revelations. Also cool was the fact that Mephisto’s part of the bargain to bring everyone back to life was that at some point in the future they will have to do him a favour. Is that set-up for another crossover? Or maybe Parker and Remender laying down tracks for their own ongoing series? This has been a great storyline so far, and I can’t wait to see how Remender closes things up.
