Civl War Foreshadowing
NoteLike all my reviews on the Civil War arc, This issue was read AFTER I already knew most major plot lines in the arc. Because of this, my reviews mostly have to do with looking back on the issue and how well it sets up the events to follow.
StoryWow! This book is extremely well crafted. Seeing how the Illuminati formed and how each member feels about the upcoming events is extremely enlightening. The conversations are solid and each character represents himself well. Even the silent Black Bolt finds a way to "come through" albeit, not until the end. Iron Man's speech really put this book over the top. Talk about foreshadowing! To see him give such a passionate speech and then have it contrast with the art on the final page (not the Civil War preview) was just amazing and heart-wrenching.
The Civil War preview deserves a mention. What a tease! Such a good one though!
