Publisher’s Blurb:
LAST ISSUE! Stan Lee, Dan Abnett, and Andy Lanning bring the year’s most colossal crossover to a close with the series finale that will forever change the universe! Soldier Zero, the Traveler, Starborn, the Inheritors…what is their fate? Find out as Stan “The Man” Lee concludes the finest superhero run of the year!

Reviewer’s Comments:
Think Iron Man, only more space faring and alien and you essentially have Stan Lee’s Soldier Zero.

Abnett & Lanning have been doing a good job with this title, bringing about the character growth of the paraplegic war veteran Capt. Stewart Trautmann as he assumes the role of Soldier Zero.

This issue picks up with Soldier Zero facing off against the seemingly unstoppable Inheritors and he’s not taking any of their gruff. These neigh cosmic beings all but ignored Soldier Zero until last issue where he decided to take to the skies and make them appreciate the power he now wields.

This apparent last issue took me by surprise as it ended wide open for future stories. I have no doubt we’ve not seen the last of Soldier Zero, but only the end of this particular arc. If you haven’t picked up this title and like watching characters grow into their power set, this is definitely a book you shouldn’t pass up on the selves of your local comic book shop.

Pina’s visuals are clean and crisp and Van Buren brings them to life with vibrant colors that will capture your attention and show you how comic book art is supposed to look.

As seems to be the trend lately, the price tag on this is a hard to swallow $3.99 but if you’re going to drop four bucks on a comic, reward the creators behind this book for telling a brand new story that isn’t just another reboot or re-imagining.
