The Red Supremacy ch. 2: Theme to a Desperate Scene

Issue #2 of Axis is basically one long battle scene as the combined forces of Superheros and Mutants fight the Red Onslaught and his Adamantium Sentinels. There isn’t really much to say about this issue as the plot doesn’t really move along. Stark has some self-pity over designing the sentinels, and past grudges are forgotten for the greater good, but basically this issue is 13 pages of fight choreography. As Remender’s writing takes a back seat, Kubert gets to return to straightforward, linear panels that are still able to be interesting.

Again, I see the possibility of the Axis title but am disappointed; without any plot advancement or resolution, I can’t think of this issue as anything other than a picture book, 3/5.
