It’s obvious that this is not the original story that Gray and Palmiotti had in mind. It doesn’t really serve as an epilogue to the series as so much is left up in the air. It’s kind of all over the place. Which is an interesting take as it leaves the characters up in the air. Which is what I think Gray and Palmiotti intended. Leave the series hanging and the characters end up hanging.

Are the Freedom Fighters together or not?

But they leave it at a very nice point. It would be very easy for a new Freedom Fighters series to pick up, but where before they were agents of the government, the new series could very easily be “freedom” in a revolutionary sense. I don’t think they’ll leave the Human Bomb in the hands of SHADE.

The parts with the Human Bomb are especially well done. It’s a nice way to handle someone of his abilities. It highlights a side of super hero comics we don’t normally see. What happens to super heroes that can’t live in the public?

It’s a shame this book got canceled. I don’t understand how there can be yet another X-Men title and new and original books like Freedom Fighters, Doom Patrol, MI-13 and Agents of Atlas can’t last. It’s a shame.

Moore’s work isn’t as strong as previous issues but it’s still well done. The only problem is that we see alot of the characters out of their costumes and there are no identifying elements to let us know who is who.

It’s an interesting way to end the series.
