Overall rating: 4 out of 5 stars

This time around, it’s “Nick Fury Chronicles: Part Two,” and while both issues have been very interesting, I do hope they get back to Avengers soon, after all, that is the name of this book. In this issue we see Nick Fury set up a team to combat the Skrulls from a bunch of unknowns. His first recruit is Daisy Johnson, aka Quake, aka the girl that made Wolverine’s heart explode, who he convinces to help him in another secret mission. From there, he uses Daisy to do the recruiting.

Her first stop is Alexander, aka Phobos, son of Ares. This was probably my favorite part of the issue, as he seems to be the most interesting recruit. Ares is likely my favorite character from Mighty Avengers, and his son, so far unseen in Mighty Avengers, looks to be just as awesome, given his fear inducing powers. The only thing I’m wondering is what Ares will think of his own son joining a super-group, hopefully we won’t have to see Nick Fury face a god’s wrath.

The rest of the recruits are also children (or grandchildren) of superpowers, and though they are not mutants, they’ve inherited a portion of the forbearers powers. The other team members are: Yo Yo Rodriguez, daughter of the Griffin with super-speed powers, J.T., grandson of the Phantom Rider with fire manipulation (likely among other) powers, an unnamed person, the son of Dr. Druid with magic abilities, and lastly, another unnamed person who is bailed out of jail with neither his lineage nor powers revealed. Daisy also tried to recruit Layla Miller, but Layla told her that the mission would fail with her presence. The story ends with Nick Fury telling them that for the rest of their lives, they will follow his orders so that they can “save the world.” So while this is mostly a set up issue, the characters introduced are all insanely awesome, and the team looks extremely promising. Hopefully, they’ll appear in Secret Invasion as humanity’s last hope (we all know the Mighty and Secret Avengers are no match for the Skrulls. 😉 )
