The Rundown: Captured by Nick Fury, Panther and the others learn about the former SHIELD directors plans to keep the world safe.
T’Challa and the other have been captured by Nick Fury and are being held by the Livewires in a previously abandoned SHIELD facility. Fury explains that he is expanding the Livewire program to setup a new army of SHIELD agents all loyal to him and expendable. When Deadpool takes the opportunity to show Panther and the others what Fury really is, the team springs into action to stop Fury and shut down the facility before more of them come online.
The Story: Jim Zub keeps this plot moving and the story is tight. It takes the momentum of the previous issue and builds on it to a climax that is earned. The Fury/Panther dynamic is great and the dialogue from everyone, especially Deadpool drives the tension and tone of the story is ways that make it entertaining and engaging to the reader. Even the though the Fury reveal was expected, the story progresses in a manner where the reveal is still worth getting to in the course of the story.
The Art: Scot Eaton delivers some beautiful art in this issue. The action is amazing and the characters look fantastic. There is real energy in the art and it complements the story and its tone perfectly.
