Really good review. I had a similar initial reaction to the mandarin but when I thought about it I can see a 4th film with the mandarin returning to avenge his sullied good name. They can let the Thor and Dr strange films bed in the magic elements of the marvel universe then the mandarin will be credible in few years time

Is this a good jumping on point?

I'm really pissed over this review, the title on the front page 'Death of the family has come and gone....Alfred's nightmares' total spoiler for the conclusion of death in the family which doesn't arrive on my doorstep until the weekend.

Does anyone have a link to the wonder woman picture on deviant art that @babs talks about on the podcast

@ghostcopy: that's ridiculous. You have a digital device in your hand there should be no need for a second device

He looks like a blue wendigo. I haven't been reading this but the whole "we'll be stay and it will save the world" seems massively more arrogant than Scottish phoenix plan or wolverine build a school while killing on xforce.

I loved the first issue's characterisation of Spider-Man so glad to see Rucka do the same with widow. She's too often used as a plot device or kick ass female sidekick. Looking forward to reading this, I hope the fight is balanced. Tasha might be a superspy but frank is special forces and been constantly developing his skills against major villains.

Not sure how this plays out against other avengers. any Wolverine fight I'll compare to daken who killed frank in the list (but had hammer support). A cap fight wouldn't make sense because of civil war, as soon as frank raises a fist it'll bring poor characterisation. Any pretty much every other avenger should stomp him

I'm really disappointed at this plot point, I won't call it a twist because it's not. It's an over used unimaginative, uncreative plot device Slott should be embarrassed, he's got great writing skills but pulls this lazy writing?

This review reads like a 3-3.5 definitely not a 4star. Either the review hasn't been written well or Tony's being generous
