Fearless was... readable. Didn't really care about the story but at least a lot of heroes were in the mix. On the whole, "Fear Itself" just felt like a huge waste of time. What changed, really? Bucky is underground now?
And Colossus is now one part Juggernaut.
But, yeah nothing major. Fear Itself was essentially a cash grab crossover event. Glad I didn't buy it now. Learned my lesson years ago with these "must read universe altering" events that happen every 14 months. The industry has become the little boy who cried wolf. Fool me once(ok a few times)... but not any more.
Pre-internet when details weren't readily available they could get away with this schtick of "it's must read". Now, not so much--at least if one is inclined to do some leg work and find out anyway.
