Secret Warriors #3

On the run from Hydra and searching for one missing Inhuman, Daisy Johnson's band of warriors head to the mutant sovereign nation of New Tian where the group, understandably, has trouble making new friends. After dealing with the Beast and the welcome party who tell Daisy's team to leave, the group seek for answers in a secret outhouse. No, really. Where they encounter another Beast (seriously, how many versions of the same character does Marvel need).

Aside from the conflict with the X-Men, which is more of a staring contest than anything else, most of the tension from Secret Warriors #3 comes from inside the group as Ms. Marvel questions Daisy's less-than-heroic actions. While the teenage makes some valid points, this will likely not be the last time Daisy or one of her team need to cross the line to get what they need.

Without getting too bogged down in the events of Secret Empire, which is going to be a constant struggle for this book, the third issue provides plenty of fun while still imparting some debate about heroism and actions in war. And taking a shot at its own publisher for what the X-Men have become? Priceless. Worth a look.
