Rom ally – and potential love interest – Brandy Clark prepares to wed the Dire Wraith who secretly replaced her fiancé. This above-average issue from the regular Rom creative team of Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema moves the series forward.
In order to save his daughter, the new Ant-Man must first escape the clutches of evil industrialist Darren Cross. Another solid story for burglar-turned-superhero Scott Lang, from the creative team of David Michelinie, John Byrne and Bob Layton.
A former burglar, feeling like he’s out of options to save his critically ill daughter, steals the Ant-Man costume. A solid by underwhelming story by David Michelinie with excellent art support from John Byrne
and Bob Layton.
Coerced by the Corporation, swashbuckler Donovan Flint has no choice but to join in the search for an ancient artifact. A surprisingly flat story by David Michelinie, with inconsistent but potential-laden art from the team of Don Newton and Bob Layton.
Angel and Iceman must team with the Hulk after a Sentinel Master Mold crashes the former X-Men’s double date. The old CPL Gang of Roger Stern, John Byrne and Bob Layton reteam for this fun, done-in-one outing.
Contrary to its striking cover, this issue actually features three unconnected – and largely uninspired – tales featuring Batman, Aquaman and the Legion of Super-Heroes. From creative talent including Gerry Conway, Paul Levitz, Don Newton and others.
The X-Men struggle to free themselves from imprisonment, then must battle Magneto within the heart of an active volcano. Assured work from the classic creative team of Chris Claremont, John Byrne and Terry Austin.
Under the influence of Crossfire’s Undertaker Machine, Hawkeye and Mockingbird are soon forced to battle each other to the death. A surprise conclusion helps, but, ultimately, Mark Gruenwald’s auteur opus fails to meet its lofty aspirations.
Now broke and homeless, Hawkeye and Mockingbird continue to come under attack from hired guns sent by Cross Technological Enterprises. Writer/artist Mark Gruenwald serves up some weak villains and a bland story for this miniseries’ penultimate issue.
