The Solicit:
SIEGE BLOCKBUSTER TIE-IN!! Back in DARK AVENGERS/UNCANNY X-MEN:UTOPIA, Dani Moonstar made a deal with Hela. Now, the mistress of Hel is calling in her marker. With all the Asgardians falling in the Siege of Asgard, someone needs to deal with the dead. And who better to do so than a Valkyrie. But where is Dani supposed to be bringing these dead?

I Say:
A solid issue featuring Dani. The writing was clever enough to keep this from feeling like a “filler” issue, despite the absence of the rest of the team. The history of the X-men's adventures in Asgard is lightly touched upon.

While the issue skirts the action of the Siege crossover, its story fits nicely within the boundaries of the larger crossover. The plot uses Dani’s backstory as a sometimes Valkyrie and her bargain with Hela from June of last year to good effect and lays the groundwork for possible future complications.

Verdict: HIT!
