It all comes down to this! Ivar and his brothers – Gilad, the Eternal Warrior, and Armstrong – have led a suicide mission to rescue Neela Sethi and time itself.

It’s interesting that this past week I’ve been reviewing two series, both involving time travel. One is Doctor Who (link to 9th doctor review?),whilst the other almost feels like a tribute...

alone…
What happens when history’s most jaded

combination of his estranged family, including his immortal brothers, his
inter-dimensional enemies and a Bloodshot Nanite with one heck of an attitude
problem! And that’s just the start of history’s most unexpected saviours.
