Quote:I'll give this 3 and half stars.
That score (presumably out of 5) is fair enough but this was the most fluff -if not worst- ish of the run. A mundane 'day in the life' chapter. There was no tease/excitement with this first status report of 8 years later. Meh. Annie is older but old man acted like he got younger the way he shrunk with intimidation from Professor Wolverine. Bah. IMO, "Spiderling" is a good unique codename but her subplot desire to change it was the only curiousity of the ish. Other than that, there was a umpteenth Danger Room fake action session, 3 pages of cuddly Wolverine attitude, an 'are we there yet' car ride transition, a sugary family outing at Coney Island Park, a baffling ball toss failure, and it suddenly ends with what would have been an energizing Lizard attack - that is completely undermined by the preview of the beautiful next cover spoiler. Hmm... This might be good jumping off point - which was my intention after the first issue but it was worth reading for the whole year.
