The short answer? Eh.
We got the sell-out book and…well…it’s kind of the equivalent of watching a random episode in a soap opera. Basically, the Vision is still upset at the Scarlet Witch for her whole “killing lots of Avengers” thing (and apparently the rest of the Avengers aren’t, which is…weird). And, in San Francisco, Rachel Summers is running around beating the crap out of b-listers like the Serpent Society.
Oh, yeah, and the Phoenix Force is waiting in the wings, which is the closest this book gets to having its own plot thread.
In short, it’s pretty much totally unnecessary. Then again, we are talking about a book that will literally have a limited series dedicated solely to the fist fights, so “unnecessary” is probably the order of the day.
What about you? Did you read it, and what’d you think?
