One of the best things that comes from tie-in issues of a major event is how a single issue can give a greater perspective and go deeper into the feeling of what the event is all about. This issue is no exception. The story hinges around a televised interview with the Hydrya Supereme himself, Steve Rogers. We get to see a more ‘man-on-the-street’ view of the New World Order Hydra has installed. A lot of times tie-in issues can become just prerequisite fillers until the event is over. Luckily, since Spencer has crafted the event from the start, the series really makes itself required reading for the larger story. Whether you want to see Steve being the leader of Hydra or not, this does a great job to give us a look at the inner workings inside his head right now.
