By now you're probably aware of some of the changes we've seen with Nick Fury. He's often been a man of mystery but, until now, we had no idea just how secretive he's been. Despite what we now know, the other heroes are still in the dark over what he's been up to. This leads to a pretty great fight between the Avengers and Fury...in space. Nick Fury may be "old" now but he still puts up a heckuva fight. What does this mean for the other heroes that were secretly working for Fury? And before you dismiss this fight as your typical hero vs. hero skirmish, there is one hero that will be majorly affected by this battle.
We also get some flashbacks to the moment that the Watcher was killed. Is this the moment we get all the answers? We do get some but there's still a lot left to be told in the next and final issue. You can't help but wonder what else Jason Aaron has up his sleeve.
Mike Deodato does an amazing job on this issue. As often as we've seen these sort of fights, you can't help but relish in seeing them unfold. Aaron gives Deodato plenty to work with and it's a spectacular sight.
With one issue left, we're left wondering how we'll get all the answers in that one final issue. As glorious as the fighting was here, we don't get to find out a whole lot. There's some jumping from scene to scene and we're left hanging, once again, until the next issue. I can't remember a series that ended every single issue with a giant cliffhanger like this one has.
Another thing with the fighting, you would think someone somehow could put a stop to it to try to actually get some answers instead of just trying to smash each other.
If you've been wanting some good old fashioned superhero fighting superhero action, you're in for a treat. Most of us have an affinity for Nick Fury and the recent revelations over his status have us all wondering what's next for him. For the time being, we get to see him take on the Avengers. And it's pretty glorious. Jason Aaron is still peeling back the layers as we wait for all the answers and Mike Deodato gives us some amazing pages to stare at. There's only one more issue left in this series. There's no telling what will happen next.
