Thank goodness that arc is over. Though at the end it didn't seem conclusive...
http://www.popcultureshock.com/2006/42512/Didn't care for:
The INITIATIVE brand on the cover. Doves(zombie doves?) not included in story.
Previously Page by principal.
Bald and bushy eyebrows of flaming Torch(undecided about the different temp. yellow eyes?).
Unclear if IW killed by energy dagger or Storm.
"--NAIL YOU TO THE wALL? YES, NOW." read jarring.
The funny zombie banter became proportionately displeasing the longer the arc went on.
Johnny falling for the 'its me Lyja' thing this into the battle.
Thing's white bands at bottom shorts.
BP rhetorically asking 'how do you kill...' 'how do you dismember...' given his actions/orders.
Relying repeatedly on King Solomon Frog even though they knew it wasn't working right.
The z-Avengers portrayed so smart but so 'dumb' to think they might deal with Death when they are probably already dead (at least according to BP).
A clever Thanos/Death ploy wasted on 2 unnamed skrulls who die in same panel revealed (seemed pointless except for the welcome portrayal of the 2 icons).
Storm running faster than Ben (unless it was his intent to follow behind with his stronger legs).
Storm able to detect magnetic fields (associate that power with Magneto, granted I'm not a sci-wiz).
The abrupt conclusion (iirc next appearance is: http://www.popcultureshock.com/fantastic-four-547-preview/42035/
).Liked BP, himself, a lot this issue:
BP drawn panels.
BP order to take out IW first.
Johnny was out of air so quickly.
BP as a moving target.
BP energy daggers in his arsenal (but where to they come from and how many are there).
BP a good shot.
BP played the insulation game before with Storm
BP finally ordering a retreat.
BP not going up against "Man-with-boomerang-in-his-head" again (he did in FF
BP re-encountering Big Bug (as I said last time
: It was good to see the Big Bug as a zombie if it leads to a recurring villain role).
BP as a GUEST star, will prob budget a different title next month...Banner submission:
