The Rundown: The Squadron Supreme gathers to discuss what feels wrong with the world and what they can do to stop it from changing.
The World of No Return
The Squadron Supreme finally gathers to discuss the feeling they have that the world is different. They also want to know who and what the Avengers are and what they have to do with it. As they begin their investigation, they discover that the Starbrand is missing and the location where Steve Rogers was frozen empty. Nighthawk finds a link in his investigation. One that will lead him to Wakanda.
The President’s Best Friend
President Phil Coulson has heard and seen everything that the Squadron Supreme has been doing and is worried that everything that he has built will come apart at the seams. After getting advice from his political advisors, Coulson promptly murders and prepares plans to frame Wakanda for the incident as he meets with his real advisor and removes the device that altered reality to begin with.
The Story: Aaron does a great job of bringing the story to a head and the investigation elements are really good. I liked seeing how this team operates regardless of its motives and their dynamics are both familiar and unique in many ways. The first part of the story came to a great cliffhanger that I can’t wait to see play out. The second story with Coulson is dark and interesting. I liked the cameos and how their interactions in their roles are on par with their regular world personalities.
The Art: Kuder delivers some great art throughout the issue. The scope of the world is captured brilliantly. McGuinness tells a more intimate story and delivers some great atmosphere and details throughout.
