Domino #5

While the overall plot of Domino versus her new arch-nemeses doesn't progress much, there's still quite a bit to enjoy this issue including our girl grasping a measure of insight while fighting off a club full of enemies alongside Shang-Chi. Finding calm in the storm, Domino realizes that her powers can work for her (and why that can terrify all those around her).

There's a noticeable weight taken off Domino's shoulders when she stops trying to force her powers and just let them work naturally for her. Of course, there are still questions about what happens when her adversary either takes those powers away or decides to ramp them into high-gear again. Has she learned enough from Shang-Chi? Time will tell.

Domino #5 gives us more of the B-story involving Topaz and Prototype fighting Domino's gal pals Outlaw and Diamondback. The sequence allows for a few more flashbacks of Prototype's past while confiming that the pair's powers are somehow linked (and why Prototype has such a hard-on for destroying Domino's life). Worth a look.
