From Marvel: “Meet Czar and Big Murder. They’ve kicked Spider-Man and Wolverine’s butts throughout time, working for the mystery villain who’s been running this whole scheme. And he’s winning. But will it matter when, SPOILER ALERT, the Phoenix Force steps in? Don’t miss the penultimate chapter of Jason Aaron (WOLVERINE) and Adam Kubert’s (X-MEN) modern-day masterpiece!”

Nearly three months since the last issue.
And as I’ve said before, when I have to wait that long for an issue, the series better be spectacular. Or in this case, astonishing.
Unfortunately, I still find the villains to be rather two-bit and silly.
And while there is comedy, it just doesn’t work for me this time around. There has been so much build up of emotions that the silliness just seems out of place.
