The Pryor family takes it!

There’s nothing secret about this Secret War of Inferno. There’s Good vs Evil and Brother vs Sister. Or is there more to it? Colossus has stormed the castle and find the thrones empty, Maddie takes a throne, and Ilyana dethrones. Also, we find out who’s really winning this war.

Madam Pryor has the throne of the dark side of Inferno and is flanked by her adorably disgusting son/machine thing and Old Man Havok. We’ don’t have many more issues of Inferno left, so we’ll see how this pans out: I’m hoping that Maddie & Kiddie Cable are here to stay in the mainstream universe after all of this is over.

The chemistry between these two are is undeniable and I hope that it's continued into the mainstream Marvel Universe post Secret Wars!

Maddie’s true MO is revealed while Domino and Colossus have a genuine moment together. It brings to this reader’s mind a simple question: “Why aren’t these two a permanent thing?” It seems that Neena can get to Piotr in a way that no one else can and their chemistry is comparable to what I’ve seen with Rogue and Gambit!

While the plot isn’t the most enamoring, the art carries to book the whole way. This conglomerate of Marvel characters aren’t just X-Men, there are Avengers and Brotherhood in the fray as well! We see a well and true army lead by Scott Summers against Ilyana, but she has an ace up her sleeve like no other.

In the end, we find out who was alluded to in the beginning of Inferno #2 and it’s obvious that the next few issues will have a certain sinister feel.

This is just half of the fighters that we see in Inferno #3! Iceman, Psylocke, Nico Minoru, Brother Voodoo, Dazzler, Jean Grey, Vision, Mystique, Dr. Nemesis, Forge, Storm, Wiccan, and Nightcrawler...just to name a few!

THOUGHTS

The Best Part: All of the cameos! It’s great to see so many character, even though there isn’t dialogue for all of them!

My Aggravator: Piotr’s blind ambition to “rescue” Ilyana from herself, and the complete disregard that he has of anyone that isn’t Ilyana. First Cyclops, then Boom Boom and Nightcrawler. And now, because he’s barreled into the heart of Inferno, X-Headquarters has been taken over by Darkchild.

My Surprise: There was no surprises. Maddie got what she wanted and Colossus looks like a bit of an ass.

My Prediction: When push comes to shove, Neena will save the day! I don’t know how, but I’m hoping that she will!

My Commentary: So, we have three apparent villains here in Inferno and we’re already halfway through with Secret Wars…will this be another AXIS like event? Other than Sabretooth, who really changed in AXIS? Who will change in Secret Wars?
