Iron Man, Captain America and the others on his side notice the “kids” are bout to leave, but Iron Man believe there’s one way to prove if Ulysses’ vision of Spider-Man and Captain America will come true. Insert dangling mystery here… until next issue?

So…

We get lots of drama in this issues despite this event mini-series having “war” as part of its title. David Marquez’s art remains breathtaking while Brian Michael Bendis’ story just seems slow in the issue and previous ones. Certainly decompressed storytelling and writing for the eventual trade paperback seems to have largely slowed this whole event down to a crawl while the artist’s recent family changes have actually slowed down the production of this event series. On the strength the art, despite being weighed down by wordy dialogue and slow pacing, I give this issues a 6 out of 10 rating.
