---SECRET EMPIRE TIE-IN! Captain Marvel and her crew are up against the ropes as the full force of the Chitauri fleet bears down on Alpha Flight Space Station. Can Carol find a way to inspire her ranks — including the battalion of young cadets — to rise to the challenge of protecting the planet?---
The 'batatalion' consists of merely the 3 new cadets just introduced. The problematic exile outside Earth's orbit continues. The elapsed time since the shield went up remains unrealistically vague, the consistency/choreography/clout of the Chitauri attack continues unevenly presented, and the inability of this group -that Cap feared most- to breach of get help to breach continues as a contrived plot device. Puck and Sasquatch represent as the old-school Alpha Flight with some better-than-nothing facetime. The art is nice and clean. The cadets are impressive. And the immediate danger to Carol is suspenseful enough.
I miss Dad and Dan.
