So the big secret is revealed, a conspiracy that will rock the Marvel Universe. Nick Fury has a son.

How many does this make?

Seriously, why was this such a big secret? Fury had another son, that died in Secret Warriors. So why was this such a conspiracy? How will it rock the MU?

On the one hand I’m glad that the plot threads from Secret Warriors didn’t fade into obscurity, that Marvel picked them up and is using them. But on the other I’m disappointed that the results of Secret Warriors are being rewritten so quickly. Hydra is already back in play and now so is Leviathan.

And I’m still disappointed in the reveal. It’s a disappointment. It feels like the reveal should have had more oomph to it. But that Johnson is Fury’s son? That’s a letdown.

And if the series was about Orion wanting Johnson and Fury for the Infinity Formula, why wasn’t Mockingbird involved as well? She’s got it in her blood now.

The issue itself was decent. It helps explain how Johnson was able to do what he did, but just barely. Doesn’t explain why Fury was running around in the Scorpio outfit. But overall it was a decent issue.

It’s not Yost’s fault that the reveal was so disappointing.

Eaton’s at the top of his game. His work has come a long ways. Solid work throughout.
