While I don’t want to speak with too much finality, as there is still .1 issues to go (what?), Fear Itself has ended up being something of a letdown.  I always enjoyed reading it, but it felt like it was going through the motions, and that the major story beats were never in question.  Even worse, when surprises did happen, they felt hollow.  If you kill Bucky in an off-hand way, it’s going to be assumed that he’s not really dead (spoiler alert: he wasn’t).  If the story is following a prophecy that says, in a nutshell, “Thor’s gonna die killing the bad guy,” guess what?  It’s not going to be terribly interesting when Thor dies killing the bad guy.  Thor died a few years ago.  He came back.  He’ll probably be back in some regard by next summer.  Maybe this Tanarus fella will be a good god of thunder, but I wouldn’t hold my breath;  that would be an interesting surprise, and Marvel doesn’t do those anymore.
