I just read it and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. The ending was fantastic in my opinion and may be the direction that Simon needs to make him relevant in the current Marvel climate. This may the break away from the nice guy pretty boy image that he currently has. Maybe he will be finally taken seriously by other heroes and villains.
