Choose life. (Deuteronomy 30:19)

Writer: Tom DeFalco
Penciler: Ron Frenz

I probably only bought this because it tied-into the Secret Wars. I certainly only read it this morning because it did.

It's a morality-tale which the Enchantress conveys to her sister Lorelei via a lengthy flashback to unseen events on the planet the Beyonder made.

While it's great to see further original Secret Wars material, (published after Secret Wars II had finished!) by necessity it can't really get too story-driven. However the Enchantress' journey is one that elicits some sympathy from the reader, and thereby endows her otherwise shallow character with some sort of depth. By turning her suitor to stone, Lorelei is effectively a mirror, representing the more self-centred woman that the Enchantress used to be.
