A mixture of comics read by me this week from Marvel Comics!
The fate of Hope Summers revealed! Fantomex takes on each and every one of the world’s secret intelligence agencies! And on the outs with the rest of his team, Cable hatches one last scheme.
The return of a favourite of mine was excellently done in this twisted mutant tale – It seems this tale is getting out of hand, but there are threads that seem to be dragging me back in. Some of the characters are unlikable, but you feel yourself connecting with them all. I have no idea where this will all end up, but it’s truly a rollercoaster ride…
Lifting the enchanted hammer Mjolnir has transformed a mysterious woman into an all-new version of the mighty Thor. But what happens when she’s separated from that hammer? Plus, Frost Giants! ROXXON! And oh yeah, whatever happened to the guy who used to carry that hammer?
Although we nearly learn the identity of our new Thor, we do learn some other things – like what happens when Thor is away from Mjolnir for too long – a problem that didn’t used to vex the past Thor (for a while at least), but there was still a lot going on – Minotors, Dark Elves, Ice Giants and the return of …someone…leading up to something we’ve been waiting for a since this series was announced! This comic seemed to fly by and be over too fast!
Rocket and Groot are the two best friends that anybody ever had. And they’re also amazing at killing really big alien things/saving the Galaxy!
Rocket Raccoon, after his most previous adventures needs to make some money, and we see how. There’s a nice cameo at the beginning from Ego – the living planet, and then Rocket is on a job for Astro. The exploring of the universe gives so much potential for this series!
What does it take to be a Howling Commando? Have the Howling Commandos gone a step too far? And what will Frank do once they’ve crossed that line?
A warning – there is hardly any Frank in this issue, but don’t let that put you off. What we do get is a more detailed look at the Howling Commandos. Their history and their aims – not just on Frank. There’s a real good look at them here and it makes them more human in the eyes of the reader – not just another foe for The Punisher to blow away!
