The Rundown: If the Agents of Wakanda have any chance of stopping the dragons bent on breaking into Avengers Mountain, they are going need the help of an old enemy.
The shields are failing and the dragons are set to break through the defenses of the mountain. When Broo discovers a tiny, scared Fin Fang Foom, the creature tells him how he made his way into the mountain and more importantly, who and what the dragons are currently attacking it.
The Agents continue to hold off the attack as best they can, but their efforts are proving useless until Broo convinces Foom to get himself together and fight back against the creatures of his own making. When Okoye arrives with some Asgardian backup, the situation might go from bad to worse if Broo can’t stop the fight from escalating.
The Story: Jim Zub delivers a satisfying and action packed conclusion to this arc and takes the time to show a different side to an often misunderstood villain. The Foom/Broo connection is interesting to see and the story is entertaining. The dialogue between the characters is fun even in the face of impending destruction and that keeps the reader engaged in the story itself.
The Art: Lan Medina masterfully delivers epic battle scenes and action throughout this issue. I was blown away by the visuals and how every page had something to catch the eye.
