Spider-Man ... for hire? With Paladin in deep trouble, Misty Knight's operation only has one agent in the streets: Spider-Man! But the wise-cracking wall-crawler is up to his neck in trouble with the all-new, all-deadly Scorpion! Who else can Misty deploy? And what other shocks can she reveal about the lies upon which the Heroes outfi t was built? Then, as the terror of Fear itself engulfs the streets, our underdog operatives fight just to keep the city together - and that means Misty Knight must recruit some very unlikely agents! Just who is for hire tonight? Would you believe elektra, Shroud and Gargoyle? Plus: the Heroes For Hire go to...the Jersey Shore? With the trade in the Atlantean narcotic Hook running wild, it's time for Misty Knight to shut it down with a lean and mean handpicked squad that includes Moon Knight and aquatic expert Stingray!

I wanted to like “Heroes for Hire: Fear Itself”. It had a lot of characters, some of which were favorites of mine back when I was a regular comics reader. The art was nice, both in terms of the characters and scenery of each drawing PLUS the way the panels drew you from one to the next. I wanted to like it. But I couldn't. There were far too many holes for me to enjoy it. (Possible spoiler follow.) Spider-Man discovers himself trapped in an arena, entertaining assorted low-life in a fight against an enhanced Scorpion and some dinosaurs smuggled into New York City from the Savage Land. Question: What were all these people planning on watching if Spider-Man hadn't blundered in? Was the Scorpion originally supposed to fight the dinosaurs? Was there another character in a holding cell who would have been thrown into the fire? Question: What caused that kind of transformation to Ben Grimm? Why him? How long had he been rampaging before the heroes stumbled upon him? Question: How did all of the heroes contacted by Misty Knight manage to just happen to have a telecommunications device? Had she done a pre-rercruitment in advance? Do all heroes carry such a device nowadays? Question: … ah, you get the point. This would have been an enjoyable book if only it hadn't left me with so many questions! RATING: 2 1/2 stars, rounded down to 2 stars.
