Cyclops known for his cautious ways, may have brought on unintended harm for the team.
After the recent battle with Dormammu, writer Brian Bendis seems to have slowed down the action element as it relates to this book. The series overall does feature some unparalled dialogue and even pop culture references that connect with teenage readers. Post-Dormammu, we haven't been treated to any new major conflict other than S.H.I.E.L.D. constantly chasing Slim Summers and company. The introduction of Dazzler into the storylines has been great but Bendis appears to be focusing more on character development with our young team members, than bring on some new villain of the month element into the stories. With the unique style that artist Frazer Irving delivers, it's too bad his work is wasted on scenes with the team training in the snow! You want to see the big fight scenes with Irving's work, not fill up panels and pages with constant banter and dialogue with the characters.
Final Verdict: B
