Uh, Peter knows about his deal with Mephisto? Does he know he used to be married to a super model, too? I thought no one, not even Peter, remembered this?
It's like they have to put a 4th wall breaking jab in every other issue. It's both funny and annoying at the same time.
We've all seen this before in the promos, but just thought I'd post it again now that the issue is out.
AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE #16
I don't know why, but the living in a bunker part made me laugh out loud, especially given the fact the Baron is an ex-Nazi and they, well, hid in bunkers post-WWII.
Mmmm, Skrull - the other, other white meat. If Skrulls can shapeshift into anything, does that mean they taste like everything or are they just the "mystery meat" from the lunch room cafeteria?
BLACK PANTHER #40
Damn, thems fightin' words Black Panther. After this trash talking of Bullseye, Aaron needs to write a BP vs Bullseye.
BLUE BEETLE #30
Paco's family is awesome. I just want to know why Paco let's his sister dress his brother up like a girl and run around shouting, "I'm a princess!".
Oh, wow, that's the best mom ever. While not shown here, Soledad, Paco's sister, has a huge crush on Jaime, off-panel, making this scene even better.
I did it...WITH SCIENCE!
Dakota was shot and is in the hospital. Matt checks up on her and she reveals she's alright with this moment.
FINAL CRISIS: ROGUES' REVENGE #2
You're the Weather Wizard - you're not supposed to be this awesome!
Stop it! Are you trying to take Black Adam's place in my heart as bestest villain ever?
That's cold, man.
JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA #18
This is a personal question, but isn't Hawkman invulnverable or anything? He fought Black Adam (well, got his asskicked anyways), but a normal human manages to cut him with a machete? What the hell are his powers anyways? I didn't think he was this "weak".
This is what Gog did to some warmongers in Africa and it reminded me of the first JLA issue from the Silver Age (or was it Golden? I forget) where the team was all turned into trees. Coincidence or does it tie into who or what Gog is?
Apparently this was spoiled in the solicits for November (or there abouts), but Gog turned the marine guy no one cares about and who just joined the team into the new Magog after he was shot with a rocket by the random insurgents. But why is he naked now?
Man, the casual nature in which Hit-Girl just kick-pulls her swords out of the girl and how she killed everyone in the room was nuts. And she's even smiling afterwards! I don't think pepper spray is going to help much if she wanted you dead Kick-Ass...
I just loved this "classic" rooftop jumping splashpage and thought I'd share it with you.
Is Kl'rt going to betray Nova or is this just a ruse to help save him from the other Skrulls?
Xavin transforming into Kevin Smith / Silent Bob is priceless.
Princess Powerful in the house!
Best description of what a television is ever.
I think I mentioned this in previous months, but what the hell is up with this Zatanna fixation of Lois? Did Clark have an affair I didn't hear about or something? I thought she was busy trying to shack up with Batman in Dini's book? And since when do super model ace reporters who are married to freaking Superman start worrying about zits and being fat?
Not a fan of Krypto, but I'm probably one of the few that isn't. Even so, this scene almost makes me want to pick up this title again.
TEEN TITANS #62
This was better when it was called 52 and Wonderdog was Sobek.
Anyone recognize the badguy? I feel like I should know him, but can't figure it out.
ULTIMATE X-MEN #97
Xavier with Wolverine's claws and healing factor? Now that's freaking overpowered. I think it's equally as shocking to know that Magneto and Xavier are the ones that developed the original Banshee drug.
Ouch. It's no Hulk vs Wolverine though...
Speaking of which, this has to be the best 4th wall breaking joke ever.
Why does old, blind Hawkeye kick more ass than his younger self?
Spider-Bitch wasn't there to save people - she was there to kill Kingpin and take over his territory.
That is one sick drawing of Wolverine by McNiven. How long did it take him to draw that? The detail is amazing.
These are two pages from separate parts of the book, but the second one follows up directly on what happens in the first, so I just spliced them together. I hope the X-Men have a good therapist for Rahen...
I love how Wolverine acknowledges the 'oh shit!' factor of all their old villains being "alive" again.
Who's next? Well, it looks like:
Bastion, Graydon Creed, Bolivar Trask, Leper Queen, Donald Pierce, Cameron Hodge, Stephen Lang, Risman (the X'd out guy) and William Stryker.
Basically all the guys that were revived in the previous issues.
