As the story unravels, James gets extremely desperate to have his missing left arm back. Even going to the extent of trying to get Stuart’s Zero hybrid, the emotion between the two brothers shows future events to come. The Application Nine attacks Zero and eventually decides to do some dissecting on the heroes! Concerning James, I think if he gets desperate enough he will join the Soldier Ones. It usually seems to me that when a character (like James) looses something they usually turn evil. Stuart is not going to give his hybrid up, but James is crazy enough to do something drastic. So whatever Stan’s team does in the future with James, I think this is one of the choices.
Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning are the new writing team for this story arc. Their writing really captures the characters' emotions and gives little Easter eggs along the way. Abnet and Lanning are doing a great job on this new arc, adding new characters and future events that would work perfectly into a tie-in with Starborn and The Traveler. Javier Pina are doing a great job with artwork. It is cool to see the drawings and face expressions on Stuart. While it does seem to be off at times, it is good to see that the artwork has remained consistent.
The new story arc is a good jumping on point for new readers. So if you haven’t read this or any other Boom! Studios books by Stan Lee just grab some! Soldier Zero #5 is a good blend of a classic and modern day comic story and if you ask me this story arc is better than the previous. Soldier Zero #5 hits comic stores on 2/16/11.
Overall Score - 9.5/10
