Um...OK? Bendis tacks sharply in this issue, with Angela and Drax dispatching Yotat in the issue's first few pages and the focus almost immediately shifting to Angela's confrontation with Gamora over her lack of faith. Given that Yotat got his own origin issue in this series, I thought that he was going to be the overarching villain throughout it. As such, it's weird to see him dismissed by the sixth page. Is he going to return at the end? It seems doubtful, since Bendis seems to be doubling-down on Angela's fight with Gamora. But, then, why introduce him in the first place? It feels vaguely like old Bendis, where plots get changed willy-nilly. The good news is that the conversation between Angela and Gamora is really well done, with Bendis and Deodato beautifully conveying Gamora's sense of isolation over her belief that Doom isn't god. For that, it earns three stars.
*** (three of five stars)
