R.I.P. Don't pee in the (Dead)pool, November 2007 - January 2013
That said, on a purely visceral level, this is definitely more satisfying. I'm a sucker for a good "hero" moment, and this issue had a fine one.
This book is awesome!
I can't believe that Shuma Gorath actually showed up in a recent comic!

In the span of three issues CB&MI13 has gone to the top of my list, rivaling Captain America as favorite series. Cornell's storytelling is just...fantastic. He's tying into current MU events seamlessly...and managing to use recent plotlines by Claremont nonetheless...making them good even.
Kirk's storytelling is equally fantastic. A great look to a great book.
The one complaint I have of this book is a distinct lack of Captain Midlands. Well, and sometimes the art, but it's starting to grow on me. I also like that they're setting the stage for just what MI13 will be handling post-Invasion.
I'm not big on supernatural books, but this one has me hooked.
I know Kevin Nichols through a guy that knows a gal. Small world!
If nihilism didn't take some delight in destruction one might suspect nihilists were an unnaturally morbid sort.
Pete Wisdom and MI13 (yeah that's right, that's the true title :) ) is one of my favorite books that Marvel puts out along w/ X-Factor DD and Nova. MI13 is a MUST, it does have characters that aren't that well known for the most part but every issue gives you a great feel for each characters personality and what they're all about.
The team is a great mix of characters and power sets, and just very unique personalities that will hopefully make this book an ongoing for as long as Marvel is in buisness.
The part with all the Union Jacks was a great way to enspire hope to the people and was a very cool way to form the new, very bad ass and fantastic looking, costume.
I just hope Pete doesn't get too much $h!t about breaking open the door when everything is over w/ the Skrulls.
And also, like other posters, I really hopes this ties into some future pick up of Mystic Arcana, it would be a shame to not see anything done with that story for another year or more. I just hope that's what the new teaser is about that Marvel has with that guy with the gun all shaded black. (doubt it though)
Another fantastic issue. This books keeps surprising me with its high quality. The pacing is great, the characters enjoyable, the plot engaging and the art competent. One of my favorite reads this week.
Hmm. The bit with all the Union flags ripping themselves off flagpoles and flying to where CB was resurrected...what I want to know is, did Joey Chapman, wherever he was in the UK, suddenly find himself fighting Skrulls naked?
It's also great to see Brian as a powerhouse, rather than a quirky figure of fun. Or worse - a drunk.
And remember, they me be free, but their not actually ON Earth. They could get there if they opened the right door, but right now they just kind of in the collective conscious of Britain. Which in many way is actually more dangerous.
