    Terrible issue. Story, art, characterization, choreography, directions, cliche outcomes, Shaman(??), morbid comedy, Azazel(!!) and his 'bamfs', almost all of it. It was somewhat maddening to get thru the once so will save myself the trouble of typing a PBP listing all the BAD because every page had something bothersome. Not even going to bother to find the proper cover link.

- Art and choreography? Yeah. Too much like Bachalo for my tastes.
- The story was a mix.
- The characterization was great!
- It really wasn't much a cliched outcome.
- And I'm not pleased to see Azazel, unless it's only to dispose of the relationship to Nightcrawler.
- Shaman was a plus! Good to see him working beside Dr. Strange. If only we could have seen more of him.

    Will list the only good from it:
    The cover - though it is annoyingly difficult to rationalize this as the Marvel Frankenstein we know.
    Max's origin - but just the flashback shown here.

It's obviously not the Frankenstein we know. And I would not consider this a good part of the issue. I'm so sick of child combatants, especially golemized child combatants.

    Shark Girl's insult to Santos and her "THIS GIRL HASN'T" retort - though undecided about her as a character.

Her insult didn't even make sense! She's obviously never seen a kidney stone.

Best thing about this issue was the Snowball Special!

City of Heroes is BACK!
