I had forgot how good this story line was. I must dig through my books and read it again. I love your write up, a perfect description without spoiling the overall story. X-23 is a great character I look forward to seeing more of her in the future.
I thought it was a great play. At first I was a little upset but then I remembered that the Avenger movies are loosely based on the Ultimate Universe. In the Ultimate Universe the Mandarin is corporation rather then a single person.
