The NZA Posted November 16, 2009 Share Posted November 16, 2009 is anybody else reading this? This book's crazy fun in the old Steranko 007/spy-type shit. Team got introduced at the end of Secret Invasion, and the book's all plot/actiony so its not like the characters are horribly fleshed out just yet (its up to issue 9 or so now), you've got a teleporter, a sppedster, a magus, some other energy manipulation stuff and that blonde kid at the bottom of the pic is Phobos, god of fear - Ares' son. current arc is about his inevitable matchup with his old man. The book starts on the reveal that Hydra had its claws in S.H.I.E.L.D. from the start, that Fury's squad was basically always compromised. Fury's deep underground, treating Osborn & H.A.M.M.E.R. more like afterthoughts (he's got the codes to all his old stuff anyway, heh), while trying to rebuild an army and take out the newly rebuilt Hydra team, including Gorgon, presumably dead at 's hands back when Millar was writing him. In the background, Bendis is hinting at a shadow organization bigger than them both: Leviathan, the root of Scrorpio/Zodiac (classic Fury shit here), and its cool to see something larger than Dark Reign looming that only Fury's been made aware of. Seriously, i loves me some mad-dog Ennis Fury war books, but if you've ever dug the super-spy, flying car type of storytelling more commonly associated with the character (at least since the 70's), this is a really fun book here.
