T’Challa is going to make the rest of the heroes looking for the device pay for what they have done. As he attacks the heroes, Wilson Fisk prepares for his next move after tossing Doom off a roof. After the team convinces Black Panther of his role in the mess they caused, T’Challa joins them as they fight their way through the gathering of super villains to get to the vault holding the machine.
When they finally reach the machine in order to shut it down for good, they run into a fail safe designed to keep anyone from turning the thing off. A fail safe that doesn’t rest, eat or sleep. A fail safe named Sentry.
Donny Cates pulls out all the stops and delivers an impressive finale. The most brilliant part of this entire series has been in its development and execution. Taking these heroes and putting them on the hunt for answers to a problem that they caused was a genius move on Cates’ part. It was even more impressive in the finale when T’Challa has his realization about his part in everything.
As big as this story is, Cates manages to conclude it with humor, action and some really dramatic and surprising twists. The final revelation in this issue is worth every part of the story before it.
The art is dramatic and gritty and the style of both artists is perfect for the story Cates in trying to tell with this finale. There are some truly beautiful panels in this issue that showcase the power of these characters and the rising tension of the story.
