Battle for Moment of the Week 3/12/09: Mongul or Arkillo?

....That actually worked pretty well up there.

Anyway, GLC #34 wins because it handled 4 different plot points without a problem. And also had some really messed up scenes. Scans below:

The resolution to the Mongul/Arkillo fight:

glc34b.jpg


The Kryb babies freak me the hell out:

glc34c.jpg

And also, Scar starts a riot in the Sciencells with a newly captured red lantern.


Battle for the Cowl #1 was decent, but Daniels seems to have skipped over the last few issues of Nightwing and Robin to set up what's going on now.

    Man, Guy had the best line in this week's GLC. Definitely my motw so far (although I haven't finished my stack yet).

    Jason is the gun using one at the end. Tim is in the Batman costume. It even has his text boxes when he's breaking into the underground 'fake Batman's' lair.

    Awesome artwork as usual from Rob Levin in Astonishing Tales this week. Greatest laugh was probably from the MODOK story they published.

    Battle for the Cowl was pretty cool too.

    I wouldn't consider this a MotW per say but seeing a Rob Liefeld uncolored sketch for the first time in the Deadpool hardcover I just bought was pretty eye-opening. How does a colorist even begin to piece together the jumbled mess of lines he produces? I'm referring to the Deadpool #1 variant and it actually looked good as a finished product.

    But ... how will we communicate without being caught by HAMMER surveillance now?

    Also I don't even have a moment of the week. I liked Iron Man but there was no single "Wow!" moment in it. I am ready to see Pepper flying around and breaking the sound barrier, although I wonder how this will go when HAMMER shows up 15 seconds later with helicopters and supervillains.

    He killed off a few Sinestro Corps members and kept the rings for himself.

    Surprised no one is talking about Action Comics with Flamebird and Nightwing revealed as:
    Supergirl's best friend that was in charge of Kandor (who most were pegging as Superwoman) and Chris Kent suffering from some random Phantom Zone growth spurt things.

    Also, there was the list of people FB and NW were after who were all escapees from the Phantom Zone:
    • Tor-An - Nightwing and Flamebird captured this issue
    • Jax-Ur - a rocket & missile engineer who accidentally destroyed one of Krypton's two moons and a populated moon of millions and the only criminal ever sentenced to spend all existence within the Phantom Zone, without the possibility of any kind of parole and is considered Krypton’s worst criminal.
    • Nadira (last name obscured) - a petty criminal with telekinetic powers (oh the conversations she and Superboy would have had)
    • Az-Rel - was a partner with Nadira and is a pyrokinetic
    • Quex-Ul - the only innocent person ever sentenced to the Phantom Zone. Quex-Ul was put in the Phantom Zone for killing a herd of the sacred Rondors. Rondor horns had healing properties and were therefore sacred to Kryptonians. Quex-Ul was caught at the scene of the crime and was convicted and sentenced to 25 Sun Cycles in the Phantom Zone. Superman proved his innocence and released him and Quex-Ul in turn saved Superman from exposure to Gold Kryptonite. However, this information is obviously from the Silver Age and most likely his freedom will be ignored.
    • Car-Vex - I actually know nothing about this Kryptonian. I imagine it's a new character created for this storyline.


    Those are all from prior appearances (Golden/Silver Age, etc), so might not apply directly to these descriptions, but thats the list of people the two are trackign down, all of which are plants on Earth by Zod.

    I can't identify the former Davos and former John Aman (well the 2 former weapons from their cities). One has a yellow/red scarf hat/veil with a monkey on his/her shoulder and the other is on the bottom left with a spear.

    Well, they did power their rings down while they fought. Granted, Mongul's left arm should have fallen off then, but...

    And the other pages of the fight were pretty sweet as well. Gleason draws great fight scenes. They basically stab each other with a pole, then stab the other with the pole while it's still in them. Like sci-fi kabobs.

    Mongul is also Superman level strength. I'm surprised he didnt squish Arkillo like a bug without the rings.

    Personally i was hoping Arkillo would win because his character design is x10000 times better than Monguls

    I thought they should've left Mongul's arm unattached, just flying through space and punching people in the face when provoked. It's such a great concept, I'm surprise it didn't get its own ongoing series.
    Maybe now it and Arkillo's toungue can have a team-up. Once Arkillo's toungue gets a ring of its own.

    That would make an absolutely brilliant spin-off story after the Blackest Night arc ends, following the decimation of the various corps following whatever goes down, Monguls left arm goes rogue, taking over a planet and establishing a kingdom in its own image.
