CBR Review: Fear Itself #7.3

I recently reviewed Fear Itself #7.3 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Of course, the undoing of these events (even if they were always meant to be undone) comes off as a slap in the face to some degree. Nothing is permanent in superhero comics, but to undo some of the big moments in an event in its coda? That’s somewhat unheard of. And Matt Fraction seems aware of that in this issue. Tony Stark visits the imprisoned Grey Gargoyle, who decimated Paris while one of the Worthy, and debates what his responsibility is in a situation like this. Should the villain face trial, spend the rest of his life imprisoned, or should he be killed? Does the role of the Serpent’s hammer act as a mitigating factor? And, by the end of the issue, does Odin’s undoing of what was done change anything?"
