  Speed Saunders chilling with his pipe and his copy of Detective Comics! I always get a kick out of comic characters reading comics. I wonder which issue that's supposed to be.

...Wait a second. THE MANDARIN? Speed Saunders VS Mandarin was not the Marvel/DC crossover I was expecting.

  Earth-Two and the 616 is part of the Multiverse...confirmed!

This story made very little sense. I had a really tough time following it from panel to panel.

  Yeah, I didn't quite get this one. The explanation of the murder didn't make much sense. And the offensive stereotypes weren't a help either. However, pretty grisly scene of the murdered guy on the first page.

1 star. Speed is very lucky that the Mandarin didn't use his rings on him!
