New Avengers #3, Namor lost some points killing Wakandans, but he makes it all up here. <3 Illuminati :
Cap uses the Gauntlet to push back another earth that arrived, but his wavering faith on top of trying to use the gems on something outside of our universe was too much:

and with that Cap is mindwiped or what have you.


Avengers #5, Hulk and Smasher, new Blue & Gold?

    New Avengers was fantastic. And makes the first issue of Avengers even better since
    The Avengers Machine was Tony trying his best to make it up to Cap.

    If Cap can't be a part of the Illuminati then Tony will give him the greatest Avengers line-up ever. Bros.

    well, James Roberts took full advantage of the setup for issue 13 of More Than Meets the Eye
    The crew of the Lost Light has been through a lot, half the crew's forgotten why they're even on board, and they're all due for some shore leave. as an aside, holomatter's basically solid light.

    He didn't just create him, he created him in a book-length fanfiction he published in 2001.

    I do quite like Rung though.

    to be fair, Rung the psy-ops specialist only ever got an offhand mention in Eugenesis. he never had a big part before MTMTE, and even then it's just a cute little gag.

    Here's a book worth a look, Fairy Quest #1, by Jenkins and Ramos.

    It's a little like Fables with a little 1984, but these characters are fictional as opposed to being in a Fables-like world. Basically every time their story is told, they have to act it out for the audience (a mother reading to her son, etc.), and they just get tired of having to "act" every day. The story centers around Red Riding Hood who is becoming more and more disenchanted since her story is popular, but she has to keep in line otherwise Grimm, the guy who keeps the story running on time, will punish the characters.

    Ramos' art is beautiful, and the colorist Leonardo Olea is fantastic. It's a pretty book with a decent enough hook, like this Fables anonymous scene:

    It also puts a totally different, much darker spin on that comment Steve makes about having bad dreams in issue #1

    Spotlight Megatron was pretty damn great, itself

    Megatron's effectively come back from the dead in a new body after three years of deactivation, and has found Starscream led his troops into destruction. his troops, diminished, low on fuel, forced into cannibalizing each other for parts to survive on an asteroid. Starscream had the autobot matrix of leadership, he had control of the decepticons, and he failed.

    Megatron continues to taunt and degrade Starscream, he fires on Megatron out of desperation, they fight for quite a while on the asteroid.

    tumblr_mhtpsuDsTk1r8t5eno1_500.png
    Not dead.
    "GHH"
    Good.
    "What were you thinking, Starscream? What did you imagine was going to happen to you when you opened fire on me? Look at me! I am MEGATRON! Even as I lay in disrepair under your nose you could not vanquish me! What hope have you now?"

    "Hope?! Fhah.. Hope took a walk long ago.."

    "NO! This is not you, Starscream! I don't expect a backbone, but I expect a viciousness,, an acidity.. some self-preservation! You want me to destroy you?"

    "Yes."

    "You really want me to end this all, don't you?"

    "Yes!"

    "Well, think back on the last thing you really wanted, Starscream, and remember what an utter failure that was, too."

    Strangely, "there's a giant flying horse behind me, isn't there" is probably what sold me on this. I've yet to go digital or pick up a single issue in ages, but if the word remains good I may just end up with the first trade. Err, in August, which is when Amazon says it's coming out.

    Harbinger #0 was about as brutal an issue as you can hope to find. Definitely has my MotW. Everyone should pick it up or get it from Comixology. It deserves to be read by anyone who reads comics.

    I think it was from last week, but X-Men Legacy is also great and it had the best use of the Marvel AR yet. All the AR things should be narration from characters.

  • WiseManTobesWiseManTobes Registered User regular
    They should put AR's on Youtube, make it just those panels if they are that worried, because I have no viewer thingies! ( wondered for months what those AR stamps even were!)

    It didn't even have any video, it was just audio of the Stepford Cuckoos talking about the people at the school.

    Hers was the voice of a truck driver from Brooklyn.

    See , even that, screw the digital codes that my friend's all mooch off me, gimme a code to get AR stuffs without owning a viewer, even if I gotta do it on their site or something ( can I do that? )

    If you skipped out on this series after the slow, convoluted first two issues, try this one. It's much more fun, and cogent.

    Multiple Warheads #4; The enigmatic bounty hunter's bath is ruined by bandits, and Blue Nura finds puns pearilous.

    I have to admit, this issue was a bit of a letdown as a conclusion to the mini-series, but as a comic, and an installment in what seems to be a much larger epic, it's damn fine work.
