So ends the series. It has been a lot of fun with the fate of the earth hanging in the balance. As good as the ending is, it seems to wrap up too quickly. Rated teen plus, this title is worth collecting!

The bad guy in this one is Dr. Thorpe, a real James Bond villain kind of guy. Two of our heroes find the doctor using his “brain drain” machine to elicit information from his subjects.

Our hero and an assassin find their objectives dovetail while the Spider is abducted. Rated teen plus, there’s more than enough cold war intrigue in this issue to go around.

Codename: Action #2
This is a Cold War-era spy story reminiscent of “The Manchurian Candidate.” At least one superhero has revealed himself, making it more difficult for those who want to remain anonymous.
