    God of Fear, God of War revolves around Alexander the 10 year old God of Fear. We get a mini background on Alex and learn how he became the God of Fear. I didn't find it too interesting, but it was funny seeing him shake up Norman Osborn. After two volumes of Secret Warriors I have to say I'm far from impressed.

    This was quite good. We start off with the team stealing from Baron von strucker bank and we have the latter asking Osborn for help but Fury seems to go against Osborn and there is a big fight that happens between them and it's just such great stuff. Meanwhile something with leviathan is revealed. And finally the main story of the trial of Phobos, the child of Ares and we learn their history and the sequence of events leading to his judgement. Great volume and continues to build on this world of This was quite good.

Great volume and continues to build on this world of sci fi and super spies and even has olympians in it just showing the epic magnitude of the series. And the art was just complimenting the writing perfectly.

    3.5 stars. Pretty solid volume. Nick Fury had a guy he needed to get and a device he needed to get from him. He does some trickery with Osborne to get what he needs. Some nice Spy action with Fury staying one step ahead. By the end of the book, we get to the nitty gritty of what’s up between Phobos and Ares. Not quite as good as vol 1 but still enjoyable.

    I'd give this one 3.5 stars if I could. Sooooo...this volume was pretty different than the first one. I was expecting a direct continuation...but this one got all sidetracked and shit. Don't get me wrong, I still enjoyed the story, and the general plot still trickled along...but all in all I felt that this one was a little 'less' than where we had originally begun. First off - Marvel played their little bullshit game of, 'if you wanna know the whole story, run out and buy this other comic, and thi I'd give this one 3.5 stars if I could.

First off - Marvel played their little bullshit game of, 'if you wanna know the whole story, run out and buy this other comic, and this other one too while you are at it.' I hate that shit! Marvel and DC are notorious for it and it's why I often get frustrated with them and walk away. Still, that said, this was a pretty damn entertaining volume. Fury is badass as ever, his Secret Warriors are still pissing me off (freaking newb rookies), however, they are beginning to grow on me as they slowly come into their own. And, of course, there's the whole God Of war and his son, God of Fear, thing going on - which I really dig. I dunno. Everything is kind of a clusterfuck right now (in a mostly good way). You don't know who to trust and who is working for who, and all I really want is Fury and his Howling Commandos to kick some ass and yell a lot while their fists and bullets fly at the bad guys. Basically, this volume felt like a cock tease. Hopefully I get some release in the next arc.

    Didn't like this aa much as Vol 1. It felt a little off track to where the first novel was heading. Still a great read just not as amazing as vol 1. Didn't like this aa much as Vol 1.

    Now we're cookin'. After reading this second volume, I think it's safe to say that Bendis was probably getting in Hickman's way in volume one. There was a lot of stuff going on in volume one that just felt a little incongruous and empty, without the kind of character work that really needs to happen in a team book like this. But with Bendis out of the picture for whatever reason, Hickman is left to his own devices, and I gotta say, they're much cooler devices. This book is far faster-paced than Now we're cookin'.

This book is far faster-paced than the first, but without any of the extra junk that made the first one hard to follow. In this one, Hickman is focused on telling two or three really solid, superspy stories at a time, giving each the exact amount of attention it needs. This book completely flies by. I think i read it in 45 minutes, and it left me really wanting more. Not only that, but now I feel like I actually give a shit about these people. In volume 1 it was just a collection of sentient superpowers doing their power thing and then going home. Now the characters are starting to feel fleshed out, deeper than just a surface-level ability, and the tension of working for an emotionless asshole like Nick Fury is really bringing a lot out of these characters. I totally appreciate Fury in this, by the way. I think this may be the best characterization of him I've ever read, with Hickman utterly nailing his duplicitousness measured against his patriotism and need to "win" the spy game. You can't stand him, but you know he's right, which is exactly how the Secret Warriors view him. The reader feels the same way about Fury that the other characters do, and that's just a damn treat to read, y'all. I can't wait to see where it goes next.

    like the stuff with Alexander and Ares a lot. Ed Mcguinness’ art in the one-shot was rad.

    Hickman taking over the book certainly added a more character-centric arc to this book but also toned down things a bit as he maneuvered characters around to prepare for a bigger story later on (I can only assume). We finally have Norman Osborne taking on a more direct hand in dealing with Nick Fury but the whole Hydra angle kind of slowed down or at least ended up getting pushed to the backburner. We didn't even get to touch base with the Howling Commandos and the commandeered Helicarriers.

We didn't even get to touch base with the Howling Commandos and the commandeered Helicarriers. So instead it's smaller stuff and Nick once again going on secret missions without the team and a few other characters dredged up from SHIELD past in order to add more elements to this book. But the Aries arc was pretty good.

    The God of Fear does stuff while Nick Fury sets up more plots in the background, and everyone sort of fights each other and acts snide more or less. That's it. It's alright, got some cool moments, not the most exciting outside of a few pages I really liked.

    It was a good read. There were some confusing points, but I get the feeling that that will always be in a Marvel comic. Nick Fury is badass and I love him!

    After such a strong start this is a rather oddball story arc for Secret Warriors. First of all I'm using the word "arc" loosely, because if it weren't for its title or that weird final issue I wouldn't have guessed for the world this was a story about Ares and Phobos. Maybe I'm missing some background - although issue #10 is a strong indicator that I'm not - but I don't know Phobos, or Ares, and I'm not sure why I'm supposed to care.

The strongest points of this arc are the Secret Warriors coming into their own, with Hellfire and Yo-Yo growing in particular. There's more badassery from Nick Fury (and soon-to-be Agent's Of S.H.I.E.L.D.-alumn John Garret), and Norman Osborn takes over from Baron Von Strucker in the delightfully unhinged villain department. At the end of the day, though, Hickman is trying to convince us this is a story about a father and a son. Hence the awkward tenth issue, in which the relationship between the two is hurriedly explained, ending the arc in a place that has nothing to do with the core of this book. It's a baffling choice, and if only previous issues had done some of the legwork, God Of Fear, God Of War might have provided a welcome focus and depth for what is easily the weakest link of the team: Phobos. As it stands I'm more interested in reading the rest of The List, whose Secret Warriors issue I read along this story, as I have read Thunderbolts #135. The less said about the latter and its stupid plot twists and empty quips, the better.

    Solid writing by Jonathan Hickman supported by the excellent work of Alessandro Vitti and Ed McGuinness. Hickman does an excellent job of continuing the story, however tension driving the story is different. While in the first installment, the majority of the tension was in political intrigue, a shift has taken where it is now more interpersonal. An interesting and brave twist by the author, especially when one considers the risk taken especially when one of the driving characters is Nick Fury.

However, just as with Nick Fury, one should expect the unexpected. Especially when it complicates the fusion of this group of individuals into becoming a team. As with earlier works, switching and surprising alliances and betrayals keep the reader on the edge. The art beautifully entices and drives the reader. Great follow up to first installment.

    Secret Warriors as a series was highly recommended, and the first collection wasn't bad, but the second simply doesn't work. A storyline involving Nick Fury waging a secret spy war against Norman Osborne and his corrupt government agency should be a dramatic, intriguing and tense series. Unfortunately, it is more vignettes of different characters that have little depth, little to differentiate them and crappy dialogue. Super espionage should be about well crafted plans and plots, but the action Secret Warriors as a series was highly recommended, and the first collection wasn't bad, but the second simply doesn't work.

    Continuing from the first volume, we follow the story of a down-but-not-yet-out S.H.I.E.L.D. trying to piece together enough resources to oppose Norman Osborn and H.A.M.M.E.R. after the Secret Invasion. We learn a bit more about some of the assembled team during that time, particularly Alexander/Phobos and his relation to Ares.

The team's story emphasizes their relationships and general lack of guidance, and Nick Fury's story creates links to the S.H.I.E.L.D. of the past and related espionage stories. It's a satisfying mix that I will almost certainly continue with.

    I haven't read the others in this series as I picked this one up from the library on a whim. It was great to be whisked back to the days of the Dark Reign for a while - it was the best period of Marvel comics for a while, IMO, and this comic is a huge part of it all. It's standard Marvel stuff done with aplomb by Hickman, whose Fantastic Four run cemented him in my pantheon of faves. The rating's a rounded-up three point five - superior Marvel supers, but you may struggle if you don't like that I haven't read the others in this series as I picked this one up from the library on a whim.

    Nick Fury's team of 'caterpillars' robs a bank and goes head to head with the Dark Avengers. The art is varied but good. The story focuses primarily on the father/son dynamics of Ares and Phobos which is interesting because they are on opposing teams. Leviathan is introduced Notes The Baron makes an appearance. Learning Curve Moderate: Readers new to Marvel or Secret Warriors will be confused. Nick Fury's team of 'caterpillars' robs a bank and goes head to head with the Dark Avengers.

    Dealing with the events of Dark Reign, which was a Norman Osborn "fear factory" era of Dark Avengers and H.A.M.M.E.R. control, SECRET WARRIORS Vol. 2 focuses heavily on the relationship between Ares, God of War, and his son Alexander, the God of Fear. With Jonathan Hickman taking on solo-writing duties on the title the action quickly heats up, and Fury versus Norman Osborn (and his kill team) makes for an intense scene. Fun read!

    Good light weekend reading. Art was solid, not as much as volume 3. Not sure how accessible this is to non-comics folks or non-espionage fans -- my feeling is it leans too heard on its convoluted plots and double-crosses, but they at least all make sense and they all worked for me. A lot of fun, a big cast of distinctive characters.

    Somewhat of a let-down from the previous book, because of the extreme continuity required by a Dark Avengers crossover and a build-up from Phobos’ origin in the Ares season. The result is a lack of cool spy drama. Still, the action is pretty good and the Phobos backstory does give some real depth to the character.

    A little too confused, a little too complicated. But still an interesting book. And Phobos is cool enough that he makes Ares bearable. Lots of Nick Fury in this one. And definite overlaps with the Movie/TV universe. And yet a little bit more concentration on telling the story in place would be better. The Norman Osborn/Nick Fury bits were good though. 3.5 of 5.

    Somewhat lacking in terms of plot, but I have to admit that all it takes for me to enjoy this book is ample servings of Nick Fury and, well, there definitely was *that*. I'm curious to see what comes next, however.

    The series gets better as it goes, is what some nice Goodreads reader told me when they saw my harsh two star review of the first book, and I am glad to say that that person was correct. This second book is much better, and yes the first book was just to lay the groundwork.

    Getting a little deeper into the mythology of Hickman's S.H.I.E.L.D. universe, and Alexander's background. I guess because I never read the Ares miniseries I'm missing some important backstory, but most of the relevant details are recapped.
