So after reading the entire Ms. Marvel run (including the original series) I noticed that this one didn't have a review so I decided to change that.

To start this book is not a book that can be read alone, there are other storylines in the marvel universe that will add more to this particular book. I don't mean just the other Ms. Marvels but the rest of the Secret Invasion story arc.

This novel picks up just after Carol has been again made slightly more mortal. Her alien that was living in her body has died in Monster Island and her powers are causing her some pain when she over exerts herself. Her lover has blown her off and another Ms. Marvel has surfaced.

The after all of this, the skrulls (really irritating shape shifting aliens) attack New York and Ms. Marvel has to save the entire city single handedly (other story lines come in here). Let me tell you she does, and its costs her dearly.

Outside of the story the artist has yet again changed , but at least this time it has fallen onto the lap of one artist rather than a few. Melo does a nice job on our heroine and, action is captured quite well and the somewhat sloppy look a previous issues is gone. Everything looks really good.

All in all don't expect much of a real story arc, this is most definitely not a major player in the full Ms. Marvel arc. Can it be skipped? Not really while this is almost all action small things like Ms. Marvels pain in using her powers will change the game.
