The Good

Xenophobia- It was nice of Liss to touch back on the xenophobia currently sweeping America during the recession, it was missed last issue.

Characterization- I loved T’challa using his Mcgyver skills to create some kick ass technology not just to free himself from captivity but to also exercise the Hate Monger soul essence from the man inciting the riots. T’challa also showed his skills by easily dispatching the American Panther and the mob.

Fear Itself- THANK GOD IT’S DONE! (nuff said) we could have done without these tie in issues.

The Bad

The American Panther- Still very disappointed with how things unfolded, still no explanation why a “panther” motif was used to “inspire” the rioters. It makes no sense honestly, a simple American flag motif like the captain America would have been a more logical fit. To top things off the costume gets stolen after the tainted perception it has already received and gets donned by what we suspect is Kasper Cole. Though this is wishful thinking on our part it could very well be another random guy with no ties to the Panther Mythos.

Art- (Shakes head) Seriously marvel unless Francavilla’s art can improve and be consistent why can’t we get another artist? This issue suffered from uneven art and frankly I’m tired of it.

The Ugly

    An Interesting Examination of Bigotry 0

    T'Challa prepares to put down American Panther and Hate-Monger's hordes.The GoodZircher's last two covers didn't do much for me, but I really enjoyed this one.Starting this issue off with a fight was a great move. Setting that fight up in the dark was an even better move. It was definitely a nice switch from the usual and something I've never seen done by Francavilla.Sofija is all kinds of awesome! I've totally fallen in love with this character and hope she sticks around in the Marvel U for yea...
