Superman #15

If you’re one of the many people who liked Multiversity, then you’ll love this Superman arc.  We see Superman team up with Justice Incarnate on a mission to save the Supermen of the Multiverse.  Personally I love the Multiverse, so I was excited to see all the Supermen teaming up.  I would like to point out how interesting it is that they chose blue dialogue bubbles for the villain responsible for all this.  Even though we don’t know the name of the villain and we’ve clearly never seen him before, it does seem weird that they chose a color similar to another certain character we’re expected to see soon…  Anyway, awesome book I can’t wait to see where this story leads to.

Monsters Unleashed #1

In what appears to be Marvel’s version of Pacific Rim, monsters from yesteryear are attacking Earth on a global scale. When I say monsters I mean all of them. According to an article on ew.com Marvel Editor in Chief Axel Alonso said, “If there ever were a monster who stood 10 stories high or taller and created mayhem in the Marvel Universe over last several decades, they’re gonna be in the story.” This means that larger than life creatures like Fin Fang Foom, Devil Dinosaur and even Groot from the Planet X will all be making appearances and try to rid this world of its heroes. Revealed later in the issue the reader is shown who is behind the summoning of these creatures who are looking to cause so much chaos on Earth. What might help give you some context as to who the character is you may want to read Totally Awesome Hulk #3 to get a handle on who this person is. Cullen Bunn, who is one of comics rising stars as a very talented writer is at the helm of this project who’s first issue is beautifully drawn by Steve McNiven (and will have a new artist on every different issue) is very passionate about this project. As Marvel’s next big event it’s a little on the short side as it is only 5 issues with a few tie ins, however after Civil War II I’m glad Marvel is giving us a little break on this one. This series wraps up in mid March so make sure to check this one out before you miss it.

The Mighty Captain Marvel #1

Now that the dust has finally settled, Carol Danvers A.K.A. Captain Marvel deals with her new status quo thanks to the events of Civil War II, which is being the most famous and biggest super hero there is. Having a TV show very loosely based on her life is a very good example of this, that we get to see in the first few pages of the issue. Heavy is the head that wears the crown however, as Carol deals with a alien refugee crisis on top of a alien shape shifting terrorist. A great highlight of the book is that we get a deep insight into Carol’s character as she tries to connect to a Kree kid she rescued earlier through a personal childhood moment of hers, and by offering her jellybeans. Overall the book has a good start, although I hope in due time the title picks up the pace in terms of a better storyline and gives Captain Marvel a good villain to play off of.
