Fear Itself: The Deep #4

Last review of the week, as tomorrow brings us a new comic week, with new comics to review. This issue was last week's Runt of the Litter, so it goes without saying that I'm not expecting much... But who knows, maybe it'll impress me and we'll end this week on a high.

Fear Itself: The Deep #4(of 4):

Summary: Serpent-possessed Attuma rallies his forces and prepares to storm the surface world in the name of the Serpent. Standing in his way? Namor, Dr. Strange, the Silver Surfer, Lyra and Loa. Initially Attuma knocks the heroes(including the Surfer!) around, emboldening his troops. However, Dr. Strange manages to send out a message that summons every Defender/Secret Defender. Attuma's forces begin to fall before the Defenders, but Attuma himself is still standing strong. Namor launches himself at Attuma and manages to drive a trident into Attuma's chest, which stuns Attuma. Dr. Strange rallies the Defenders and they attack Attuma, managing to disintegrate his hand, causing him to drop his hammer. Separated from the source of his powers, Attuma's strength begins to slowly wane, and Namor smacks him around a bit. Attuma manages to will his hammer back to him and regrows his hand, taunting the heroes before running away. With Attuma gone, his demoralized forces are captured with ease and Namor thanks Dr. Strange for his assistance, ending this mini-series.

Thoughts: Well, I wasn't fond of the first three issues of this mini(they were okay I guess...), but this issue was a fun little romp. I really don't have anything bad to say... I mean this issue wasn't a masterpiece or anything, but it was a satisfying read, and really, what more can I ask for?

Score: 7 out of 10.Little known fact: my middle name is Imperius! No, not really, but I've run out of things to say this week...
