The alternate universe, Secret Wars version of Civil War came to an end last with with issue #5.  Unfortunately it seems to have ended more with a whimper than a bang.  The massive battle that the story has been leading up to since the first issue is at hand, but we don’t really see too much of it, and realistically it’s over before you know it.  I won’t say too much to avoid spoilers, but I will say that it’s not completely unsatisfying.  Soule’s story works.  Maybe not the way you would expect, or particularly even want it to, but it works nevertheless.  Yu’s artwork continues to have a sparse quality about it that also fits well with this story.  In short, this wasn’t the best Secret Wars tie-in series, but it was entertaining, provided some surprises, and had a fitting ending.

The Verdict for Civil War #5:
4 out of 5
