I love zombies, but I really feel this was a totally uninspired "twist" that the story and the character himself didn't really need to move the plot forward. Osborn and the Reaper are master manipulators, either or both of them could have come up with a better plan than the zombie one.
I just find it lame that we had finally gotten the human and yet completely dangerous Grim Reaper back a few years ago and now we're retreading the undead monster stuff from a classic Avengers West Coast run.
I do agree with Mitchell that this series events could present new and interesting story possibilities for Wonder Man, especially if the renegade Avengers bust him out of jail, but for the Grim Reaper it just seems like he's being shuttled off to limbo again until someone thinks of using him again.
: Like so many Wonder Man appearances this
: leaves the character with a lot of potential
: stories now lets see if the writers deliver.
: Like the poster in marvel.com I also like
: the con look from this series for Simon and
: would like to see Simon back in full force
: in Avengers & Ms. Marvel. I think there
: is some interesting developments for the
: Grim Reaper as well. I agree with you in
: that all the super villains are written very
: well and in character, something you don't
: see in many of these series.
