To be honest, I wasn't entirely familiar with the Rangers, even though I have heard of them before. Not to mention, it seemed silly that just because they are a Texas-based superhero group, this also means they (with the exception of Living Lightning and Fifty-One) have to adopt a "Western" motif. Nevertheless, Chris Yost does a decent job in showing their individual, if rudimentary, characteristics--particularly Texas Twister, who, like a cowboy version of Captain America, comes off as a principled leader and voice of reason, and the mysterious Fifty-One, whose character design and blank speech bubbles radiate unease. Also, Kaine's tactical analysis and first impressions of them are also the funniest moment in the book.
Yost also shows just how much Kaine has developed since the start of the series. Before, Kaine couldn't wait to leave Houston; now, wanted by the authorities and the Rangers, he dreads the possibility of being forced on the run yet again. While he wouldn't admit it, Kaine has fully come to accept Houston as his home just as much as Peter has accepted New York City as his. Likewise, his problematic relationship with Zoe Walsh continues to be fun and engaging as it was last issue, especially as she's clearly become infatuated with him while Kaine is increasingly regretting their one-night stand by the hour the deeper into trouble they get.
That being said, it's not an perfect issue. David Walsh comes across like just another stereotypical and two-dimensional "evil business tycoon" who, of course, only cares about protecting the company at the expense of even his own daughter. Also, while Khoi Pram's art is serviceable, it doesn't nearly have the energy or vitality compared to Ryan Stegman, especially when compared to his excellent cover. Which is a shame as the opening action sequence would have been otherwise fantastic had Stegman penciled it instead.
Still, the overall story, thus far, is engaging and the ending cliffhanger certainly adds even more questions as to just what Roxxon has been trying to do all this time, and just who or what is "Mammon." Hopefully, we will get a satisfactory conclusion, especially with what in the world Kaine is going to do about Zoe afterwards.
