Overall, this has been an ambitious storyline for the series, and seems more cohesive than those past. I hope this trend continues. My big complaint this issue is the dialogue. There’s villainy, and there’s cartoon super-villainy. Consider Anomaly’s ultimatum to the digital Cyborg:
“I demand mega-battle, on my turf, tomorrow morning! The winner takes the planet! If you refuse… Scarlett Taylor dies again! Are you ready for…CYBER-GEDDON?”
I feel like I should be wearing footy pajamas eating Count Chocula in front of the TV on a Saturday morning. But there is a lot of camp in comic books, usually intentional. Somehow, in this case, I attribute it to too many bad movies. Not that that’s a bad thing, really – until it infects one’s writing style.
