East of West #2, Hickman's best issue of the week, Death comes for the death, stays for the Southern Comfort:

New Avengers #5, the silver medal. Black Swan drop truth bombs on everyone, plus a lol moment cliffhanger:

And where does the next anomaly show up at? Latveria. ROFLMAO, right?


Manhattan Projects #11, Hickman's bronze medal, what do you do now that you've won? What the dog wants to do, duh:

Charon is the dude in myths who carried the bodies to the underworld in his boat, FYI. Probably something about Oppenheimer putting all the minds in his, go hella crazy.

Avengers #10, Hickman's weakest issue of the week, showing he's mortal, it jumps around a lot:

Avengers teleport in, Validator's alive, she whispers something to the Departmen H guy, they're teleported out of the containment zone:

The dude had his eyes recording stuff, and this is what they saw:

Validator's is actually the guy's daughter, and she tells him she' protecting the place because "the system is now online."

G-Man Coming Home #4, G-Man and Great Man die. Again.

    More Than Meets the Eye 16 - please read it. Please. The following is a summary of the best sequence in the issue, I hope you read the actual thing itself.
    Chromedome is in mourning over the death of Rewind, the 'bot that he was closest to, the person that stopped him from killing himself. His friend Brainstorm gives him a data slug that was made by Rewind before passing, and tries to stop Chromedome from doing a very stupid thing- Chromedome has the habit of erasing his memory after people he gets very close to pass away, so he doesn't have to suffer. He was about to do the same with Rewind, but he watched the video recorded on the slug first.
    "Your attention for a moment. This is Rewind, showing you edited footage from my database. I've probably got 0.8 seconds before game over, so hear me out. I've always been terrified that you'd die before I did, because you and me apart strikes me as intensely wrong. So promise me something. Be brave. And be strong. And keep going without me. And another thing: no more injecting. It will kill you. And remember: you deserve to be happy. The New Institute was the old you. You're a better person now—stubborn and frustrating, but wonderful. And to think, I will never see you again.

    Impossible Man

    One of the first comics I was allowed to read was a little digest FF that was all about the Impossible Man fucking with them.

    Ultimately, they figure out how to get him to leave: they read the newspaper and pretend to be boring for a few hours and he gets so fed up he finds someone else to bug.

    Take a moment to donate what you can to the International Rescue Committee, the National Immigration Law Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center, and the American Civil Liberties Union. There has never been a more urgent moment to do so.

    was this based on the pages above, or did you keep reading dispite your Wiccan-related misgivings?

    Because as I was reading Loki's stuff this issue I was thinking "man, Solar probably wants to high-five Loki right now"

    and you'd be right! Loki is the best.

    Yeah I read the issue

    best one yet by far

    we got to see Noh Var being cool

    we got to see Loki and Teddy interact

    and Loki poked Teddy towards breaking up with Wiccan like a boss

    Well, they won't actually break up, because Gillen wouldn't want all the tumblr kids hurting themselves on his conscience. (And the letters so far have reinforced how important that relationship is to people. There are not a lot of good, prominent gay couples in big two superhero comics. I'm hard pressed to think of any others beyond I think maybe Batwoman and Astonishing X-Men, and the latter is a fairly minor title. )

    I saw it more as Loki poking him towards being more insistent that Billy get his shit under control.

    I doubt that given the response to the end of JIM.

    That said, Billy sucks. Teddy can do better. Frankly, I'm down for he and Noh-Varr to hook up. They're both Kree...ish.

    Let's not kid ourselves, there's not a lot of good, prominent straight couples in big 2 comics these days either.

    Gillen and Roberts should compare notes.

  • FearghaillFearghaill If there is nothing but what we make in this world let us make goodRegistered User regular
    He planned the end of JIM from the start, and Kid Loki was "his". Not so with Billy/Teddy. Also, the end of JIM was inevitable in one form or another due to the nature of comics - Gillen's cruelty was in convincing us that maybe things would be different even though we knew better going in.

    And Noh-varr is Lady Hawkguy's so get that idea right out of your head.
