I had some difficulty, even when I was looking in my regular spots, finding moments this week. I still put together a nice selection of moments, but there were a few I just missed out on and couldn't find scans of. If you find anything I missed, feel free to post a link to a scan in the comments below.
Hit the jump for mint flavoured momenty goodness!
So, uh, I don't know, but is Mutant Zero is Starfire from DC? I don't recall any orange skinned, red haired, overly sexualized (in this issue at least) mutants. Sure, there's plenty of overly sexualized ones, but not many orange skinned and red haired. Any guesses people? Ant-Man, of all people, recognized who she was later in the issue. So, she must be popular or well known enough for him to know her.
BLACK PANTHER #41
Don't mess with Wakanda!
CAPTAIN AMERICA #42
Prior to this, the Red Skull took off his mask and started cackling like a madman. Then, Sharon shoots him, as shown above. Not sure what prompted the bout of insanity, but looks like Lukin is out of the picture, but the Skull gets a new body (see the following moments) by the issue's end.
We all know Arnim Zola has dozens of alternate bodies, but, damn, that was awesome. Is this a redemption of the Director or is it just getting back at Zola and the Skull?
Now this was completely unexpected, despite the Red Skull having gone through more alternate bodies than Spider-Man had clones. I wonder if Lukin is still in there with his consciousness or if Zola split them when Lukin's body died.
Well done Loeb. This is trolling the readers at an entirely new level. This leaves absolutely no possible suspects for the current Red Hulk, makes Doc Samson, who was operating at a whole new level of awesome over in Thunderbolts, a joke and rick rolls the entire Hulk fanbase. Bravo.
SUPERMAN / BATMAN #52
How can anyone not enjoy this comic?
Ahaha, that's comedy gold right there.
*sniff* That's just dust in my eyes. I swear!
ULTIMATES 3 #5
What a shock! Who would have ever suspected? Glad they didn't explain why he was masquerading as Black Panther nor any of the plot holes surrounding it.
He did not just have Ultron monologue about how "the butler did it", did he? How the hell did this crap make it through editing?
And here we have the Loeb ending we all expected. A character that didn't appear in the story until the very end is revealed as the "mystery" villain, making absolutely no sense in the process, just like every other Loeb story.
Just a funny scene with Laura and Elixir that I thought I'd share.
Okay, this isn't a huge scene, but I just hope this signals that Yost and Kyle will be tackling the New X-Men in the future. Hopefully it's not a teaser for an upcoming Young X-Men (ugh) cross-over.
This was a funny little scene. Just liked how she couldn't grasp the Stone Age technology of Earth and it also led to a nice scene showing how all the killing has been affecting Warpath.
Here we have Vanisher stealing the Legacy Virus to end this week's X-Force. Not sure how this is supposed to be the big shock ending to set up the next arc because I thought Colossus died (he got better) to find a cure for it. What's the big deal here? US health insurance doesn't cover mutants and the Legacy Virus?
