The Phoenix is
coming to Earth, and in an attempt to stop it, a squad of Avengers
is sent to outer space in what is clearly a suicide mission. Told
from Dr. Hank McCoy's point of view, the story takes readers back to
the days of the Dark Phoenix -as a reminder of what's to come- and
as far as the Kree world Hala where big things are about to occur.
One thing that
stands out is Renato Guedes' art. His style is very different from
what mainstream comics fans are used to, especially considering the
cosmic theme of this chapter; although it does take a minute or two
to adjust to it, it is nice to look at. The arbitrary choice of
drawing the Beast with the simian appearance he lost about a decade
ago, and some other inconsistencies take credibility away from the
plot. Regarding the sudden resurrection at the end, it is better to
let it be the topic of discussion for next month. Average issue!
