Well, I was really digging this book for almost the whole thing. The idea of scientists becoming Hindu gods was fairly original and cool. Unfortunately the end was crazy lame. Everybody links powers (and hands!) to come up with some crazy ass mutant Rube Goldberg device to send the gods up to heaven. Barf town. If it hadn’t been for that, I probably would have given this a 4. As it stands, it gets a 3.
One cool fact is that all the X-Men now seem to know Spidey’s secret identity.
