Urich isn't fired, Sally is sitting in a waiting room getting interrogated and Reed offers a deal, exactly as in the preview.
Urich is covering the big battle in Civil War 3/4. Nighthawk fights and seems to down a SHIELD plane (may explain why he left in 4). Urich then interviews Stark and calls him to the carpet about the villain program, Stark has no comment.
Back at Fantasy Island, Speedball narrates in the form of a letter to his mother (who hates him as I recall). A far worse portrayal than in ASM of the Negative Zone prison. They seem to be on dirt floors without even beds (amazing when you have JMS of all people appearing more fair). Including someone with the power to rearrange his body creating a gun on his arm and killing himself. Reed meets Speedball and arranges that he meet with Congress to discuss his views (what, is Jenkins portraying Reed in a good light...say it isn't so!?). Eh maybe it isn't so...Speedball gets shot on his way to the Capital Building.
Wonder Man follows the Atlantian sleeper cell, Wonder Man at first thinks about attacking him but the SHIELD guys order him not to. He follows the person to a hidden base where they are planning terrorist attacks(complete with little KABOOM symbols on a city map). Guess we should be glad SHIELD signed him up and he didn't beat the guy up on his way there.
Oh so you think that was a fair portrayal? I guess...oh wait what's on the next page? Oh great...They are comparing SHIELD and the battle in Civil War 3/4 to Nazi's blitzkriegers during WWII and Nighthawk as the Royal Airforce in the Battle of Britian. Oh yeah... it only took 6 issues to compare pro-reg to Nazi's. I can't wait to see what is next, cannibals and child molesters maybe!?
