    Overall, I enjoyed the event as a whole, but the main series was extremely underwhelming.

    I agree it was underwhelming, but I enjoyed seeing the Avengers triumph at least. Felt kind of sad for the Squadron Supreme trapped in our world, especially Hyperion looking for Peter Parker. :/

    That was probably my favorite scene in this issue. This guy who secretly hated him that he viewed as a nuisance is the one person he's looking for to ground him and he's just... not there. Well, he actually is there but not in the form Hyperion wants him to.

    Same here.

    Some inconsistencies in the fight made it a bit hard to make sense of.

    I'm not even shocked that ended with a fart.

    After reading my friend’s copy I can say that the only redeeming quality of this issue is that it was the last.

    Overall it was an interesting idea and I liked some elements of the storyline, but it could have been way better. As Tracks said, this really should have been more of a Blade story ... but it wasn't. He's super backgrounded after the first issue.

    We get very few concrete answers to certain plot points. We can make some educated guesses but there are several vague elements throughout this story. I'm not even sure Aaron's going to tie up all his storylines. I thought this event was supposed to wrap everything up with Mephisto. We didn't even get closure to the Squadron Supreme, who the Red Widow is, and what was going on with Namor. Are all those questions going to be answered?
    Agreed. Not only does it not provide any more substance to Mephisto (we still don't know what is Mephisto's deal in-story aside from knowing out-of-story that he's the Devil so he is bad), it instead promises more Mephisto going forward.

    One thing that is funny is, in contrast to DC Comics' Superman/Batman, here I find the motivation and character of Hyperion far more interesting than Nighthawk. I also find Blur to be more interesting than the Flash (But of course I don't think Blur could support years of comic book solo stories).

    That's because Blur lacks two things Flash has - a decent rogues gallery and a large family of heroes.

    I think this could had be better if it would had be a three issue story inside the Avengers series.
