+ I love Clay Mann's art on this series. This issue, in particular, is one of his strongest outings.
+ Great finish to a great series. Easily the best Dark Reign miniseries I've read.
+ While the story amounted to little more than Elektra escaping from HAMMER and us finding out when she was abducted, it was the journey to get there that interested me the most and was a non-stop ride filled with many great moments.
- The "not even the stars are safe" mystery was a dud. Turns out Elektra actually was responsible for the event, which was the downing of a SHIELD Helicarrier where she injured the two people responsible for all her misfortunes since escaping HAMMER, and mystically blocked the incident from her mind after one of her death's and returns. Was the lone weak spot in the story, but the aftermath of it, where she kills the two assassins, more than made up for that one forced reveal.
Verdict - Check It. A great series that reestablishes Elektra, tells us why the Skrulls wanted her first and gives us the exact timeframe of when she was captured. While the miniseries was probably not needed to reveal these simple facts, it was a whirlwind of a ride that was filled with great moments and just fun to read from start to finish.
