Secret Warriors #1

   I'm glad to see the return of the Secret Warriors book, and the focus on Quake (Daisy Johnson), who's getting a great turn on the (quite good) TV series Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.

   Sadly, the series is spinning off from the blecchy Secret Empire mini-series, and since the team is in the middle of a war against Hydra, there seems to be an awful lot of killing going on.

   Quake is one of the few SHIELD agents who hasn't been brainwashed, so she's using her powers to rescue imprisoned Inhumans to join her in her fight against the Secret Empire.

   The series is fast and furious, and aside from the brutal nature of the fight, I like the team she's assembling and the fact that they get to be heroes.

   I enjoyed this issue a lot and am looking forward to future installments.

   But... how many teams can Ms. Marvel belong to? She was an Avenger, then a Champion, she is a Protector in the pages of the Totally Awesome Hulk - and now she's a Secret Warrior! She's as bad as Wolverine!

Grade: A-
