I am so happy that this comic picked up after the first issue... The first part of the book dipped into the lives of Black Panther and Storm. You should know by now that the events in AvX led to the couple getting an annulment and they really hadn't interacted much since then. We get to see how they feel about each other still and actually get some closure on their relationship which was kind of nice.

I really enjoyed the second part of this issue as well. You take the two ladies men from the two main Marvel teams and throw them into a story together and you get an enjoyable tale with plenty of jokes and flirting with a lady. I have been enjoying both of these heroes individual books and seeing them together was nearly as enjoyable. It also doesn't hurt that they are both pretty impressive heroes.

Once again, I am not saying this book is a must buy or that it is anything too incredible. If you just want a fun read with short stories that don't necessarily tie into any main arcs this is a good book for you. If you are looking for something serious that has actual story content, you had better look elsewhere.
