Betrayed by the Ants!
Marvel continues to churn them out, it seems, neglecting quality in favour of quality. While a dramatic improvement over last month’s terrible lacklustre issue, Betrayed by the Ants! is a farcical, silly, and mostly forgettable adventure for Marvel’s most farcical, silly and mostly forgettable superhero, Ant-Man. This time he’s up against Egghead—A really smart scientist who knows that if you wanna get rid of ants, you gotta read the classic “All About Ants.” Some red herrings, a whole bunch of flypaper and one foiled villain in the bag later, we’re left with a surprisingly sympathetic goodbye to dear old Egghead—a nice touch to an otherwise half-baked and by-the-numbers Pym outing.
