Well this was a particularly odious pile of shit. This isn't even a "DNF," this is a no-way-in-hell-I'm-going-to-waste-my-time-can't-be-bothered-to-finish.

The art was crap. But that's fine. I can deal with a particular style--even if I'm not crazy about it--if it fits the storyline.

But the storyline was garbage. Omega is barely in it, and really plays no particular role. The new kid has no redeeming features. The Mink is absolutely irritating, and when his hand goes rogue, it was almost the end. The actual end, for me, was when the art object started narrating.

Good God, what was Marvel thinking? The first series was a waste of potential. The second was simply a waste of time and paper.
