Marvel stuff I read this week, talked about World War Hulk briefly in the WWH thread -
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man - This was great, and Spider-Man busted out those dumb ass stingers because he was fighting a mystical opponent, and he even he said they were stupid. A cop popped the back of a trunk that had a bunch of guns so he could arrest Spidey and he came up beside him and sang, “What you gonna do with all that junk with all that junk in your trunk?” Man that’s how Spidey SHOULD be written! Another writer I’m gonna miss since he will leave the book the same time JMS leaves… Some good stuff with JJJ too, spoilers -
Robie told JJJ to cut Spidey a break, that deep down both he and JJJ must of known that Peter Parker was Spider-Man but were just in denial looking away from all of the evidence. JJJ later fired Robie. Seems like he and Spider-Man are finally gonna have it out.
Mystic Arcana Magik - Was lots of fun. Nice that they used with Magik without another dumb ass ressurection.
Nova - Fun book too. Spoilers -
Nova kicked most of the Thunderbolt’s asses, Bullseye was missing. He ran into Penance AKA Speedball. Ultimately he decided to leave Earth and go back to outer space because he wasn’t going to register or become Anti-Reg. Too bad, I guess we won’t get to see the Hulk / Nova throwdown, after Annihilation he is most def one of the people that could give Mr. Green Jeans a good fight.
New Avengers - Last but not least by any means. Hey Bendis, WHAT THE…??? Seems like an interesting idea but I want to see where they go with this one. I’ve really grown to love Yu’s pencils on this book HUGE SHOCKER in the ish BTW.
Elektra’s a Skrull? And Luke Cage’s baby too? HELLA WHOA… You know me, I can only hope they say that the real Elektra died during Frank Miller’s run and she’s been a Skrull ever since to do away with another dumb ass ressurection but I don’t think Marvel will go that far… unless they do some crazyness like she’s always been a Skrull… most likely they’ll say she was replaced with a Skrull at some point. Don’t know about Luke Cage’s Skrull baby though that one is hella weird…
