    For those of u who r missing a Killraven run-one-end-to-the-other go-nowhere adventure.

    The recap page confirms that Kashmir is a Nexus Wannabe being with motivations more like Kingpin than Kang.

    There's some sort of multiversal pocket dimension connecting to all realities called Vennema Multiversal.

    VK's alternate VK-selves cowtow to the prime version.

    Cue that mindless action sequence with Cap vs the Martian Tripod Thingamajigs.

    Natasha talks to HERself about Russian accents and there's some weak insulting thrown in.

    Alt-BW easily gets away.

    Cap teams up with Widow for more action vs the Martian Tripod Thingamajigs.

    Minor C4 detail.

    Meanwhile, VK-prime locates the reality where the duo is located and sends in the Hunt Squad which makes a fine first impression as far as namedropping goes but we have to wait til next ish to see if this decompression gets any better.

    Alt-BW is easily relocated.

    Enter some random serpentyne strays for a force cliffhanger.

    Overall, a completely average chapter with hardly servicable art.

    Glad I passed on this. Not a fan of Bunn or Black Widow.

    This arc has two of my favorite characters and a concept I'd normally be down for. I'm not sure why I'm not loving it. I've not even finished this issue yet, after having picked it up a couple times.
    Freedom is merely the ability to live without fear of persecution.
