Users who pulled this comic:


  1. The Wolvie one was eh, the Hulk one I didn’t read, the Punisher one was good, lookin forward to this with Parlov.

  2. Last one was the best of all three. The first two were alright. I am really looking forward to this one but I am not expecting too much.

  3. Wolverine was okay, skipped the last 2 because I didn’t have any particular care for the characters but considering picking this one up in hopes of some Psylocke badassery

  4. This would be better if the characters were more like the characters they are based on.
    I don’t mind the fact that they don’t have powers, but I feel that this story has so little to do with the actual marvel characters that they are based on that it would have benefitted from being an original stand-alone story with new made-up characters.

  5. @Smutty –yeah i agree. at first i saw it as a strength…with the hulk it was a total weakness. The punisher pulled it off, because revenge translates…really goes to show how one dimensional a lot of superheroes are. 

  6. I had bought all three and I love them! The Wolverine one was alright, but I would read these if they were ongoing in a second. Just dig the time period and reimaging.  Could not be any more excited for the next two!

  7. I thought they translate pretty well.

  8. Excited for Parlov’s interior art 🙂

  9. This was the weakest issue so far for me….nothing really happened and the art was really good but Wolverine was drawn like Wolverine in every other comic- weres the Japanese samurai version we saw in issue 1. I hope they have some kind of conculsion with the deadpool issue but at this point I really dont see how,

  10. This was excellent, even a lil better than the last ish, Goran doesn’t disappoint, kinda surprised come to think of it that they didn’t have him do the Punisher one since he’s drawn that character before, but just love his style and esp how he draws da females.

  11. drastically changing the artist and style at this point in a mini series is completely pointless. The art was fine, but its not consistent which threw me off. Was very disappointed that they can’t even do 5 consistent issues. Bad art direction and/or planning. 

    This was a pretty good issue story wise. I’m interested in seeing how they wrap this thing up.  

  12. I enjoyed this issue a lot and thought it was one of the better in the series, just behind Punisher. Loved the art, loved the story, 5 stars. I would love to see more of these with other characters. I think they did a good job capturing the essence of the characters with the exception of the Wolverine one, which was more of a cool idea built around an attribute of the character but didn’t pan out so well.

    Since Deadpool has had at least a cameo in each story, I expect him to be the lynch pin of all this. Don’t know what he will be, but it could be a cool surprise to tie it all up. Is he the supposedly fallen master, maimed and bandaged, returned in disguise? Is he the Daimyo in disguise (a la Shakespeare)? Or something else entirely?
