Now we’re talking!
This is, by far, the best issue to date.
It may still be a travelogue through Mark Millar’s Marvel Universe of the future, but at least this time around, the travelogue remains firmly and effectively in the background.
And the plot actually starts going somewhere.
As has been said before, I have a hunch the trade paperback is going to read much smoother and ultimately much better than this issue by delayed issue publishing schedule.
Remember when Joss Whedon portrayed the X-Men as a top-notch mutant commando team in Astonishing X-Men?
Remember how awesome that was?
Well, Cyclops obviously has been replaced by an incompetent Skrull as his sub-par tactical skills make this team of X-Men look like amateurs against Daken.
Oh yeah, and Daken takes center stage… again!
Clearly this issue hits a few of my pet peeves, namely giving one side a case of the stupids for the sake of a fair fight.
That said, it’s not really all that bad.
