The All-Stars seem to have their hands full on multiple fronts all thanks to Ultra and her machinations.  While some of them are captured and some of them are dealing with the army, others have their hands full battling Amazing Man.  Surprisingly, Amazing Man is keeping them on the ropes and as the battle goes on, the All-Stars impart some information on him that brings him over to their side.  Cut to the Brooklyn Navy Yard where Guardian stands watch and in comes Infinity Inc. who is attacking everyone for no apparent reason.  Not only is Brooklyn under attack, but so is Los Angeles and Detroit as Infinity Inc. members are showing up everywhere and the All-Stars are split up even further to deal with the threat.  Roy Thomas and Jerry Ordway bring another action packed epic to the table with our heroes making little headway against Ultra.  With Ultra always seeming to be two steps ahead of the Squadron, they have been having a hard time stopping her, and now with the heroes of Infinity Inc. involved, things are worse.  It is still great to see Thomas mixing the team roster up some, at least for this arc, and great to see Guardian return too.  There was a nice little cameo from the Newsboy Legion and it shows that Thomas will literally put anyone in the book if he can find a reason to.  There was not much of a cliff-hanger this go round, but with some of our heroes still captured and things looking grim, you know that the next issue will be quite interesting to say the least.
