My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Age of Konshu storyline comes to a mostly satisfying conclusion.

Although, of course, given the fact that Konshu took over the world in a bid to stop Mephisto, and the Avengers have now stopped Konshu…what about Mephisto?

Although that’s essentially the question that’s asked at the end of the book, and the answer seems to be: Maybe the Phoenix can stop Mephisto?!

I guess we’ll find out in the comic Phoenix storyline…?

It’d be nice to know what Mephisto’s actually up to.

Still, this comic was great, and I enjoyed the part where Moon Knight ultimately rejected the Phoenix, even though it got a bit meta with his, “This isn’t the saga of Dark Moon Knight” line.

The art is, of course, cracking.

I complained last issue that it was all set up that was clearly building up to something…

…and boy does that pay off in this issue!

I didn’t think the upcoming Phoenix related storyline in Avengers was going to grow out of the Age of Konshu, but I should have known Jason Aaron, and this Avengers run, better than that.

Everything so far has been building up to this. The seeds have all been sown from the very start of this run and, honestly, it’s magnificent.
