- Spoiler: show
I honestly don't feel like I missed much. It is of course no surprise that the Pantheon fail, it just remains to be seen what happens in the showdown between Maestro and Doom. But the scenes in the mindscape are nice further embellishments on how Bruce Banner could become Maestro. How big Ewing's current run on Hulk is though shows the kinds of problems that come with such a radical redefinition of a character. You read this and you wonder where the other personalities are or whether Hulk can still go through the Green Doors (the Pantheon certainly acts as if he cannot be killed) or why other gamma characters haven't. It isn't necessarily contradictory, we need to see where Ewing ends up, but those sorts of things will now always reverberate through the Hulk canon.
I was surprised to see a back-up story; I would guess Peter David would love to write a Pantheon mini but knows he would never get the greenlight.
