Cap(s), Herc, Wolverine, and Daredevil

Four solicitations for Marvel's February.


First off:

Jefferson said the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. But who is a patriot and who is a tyrant?  Is it all in the eye of the beholder? Captain America has the answer as the Cap from the 50s strikes back in TWO AMERICAS Part 2 of 4.

Weirdly they don't mention the Nomad backup stuff, even though that's a feature; clearly the solicitation department still hasn't gotten the hang of this.

Looks like Bucky will be keeping his costume, at least for now.  Makes sense; it's pretty different from Steve's, there's no danger of getting them confused, anymore than with, say, USAgent.

The Man Without Fear visits the Land of The Rising Sun!  As the new leader of The Hand, Matt Murdock seeks to unite its five continental regions behind his banner and lead the organization to a new future – but when all five “fingers” of The Hand form its mighty fist, you’ll be surprised at who gets hit first!  Series writer Andy Diggle welcomes Marco Checchetto (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN) for the Three-Part epic, THE LEFT HAND PATH!

Not familiar with the artist, but nice cover. Might do the book a bit of good to spend a bit of time away from Hell's Kitchen.

Special Variant by TBA
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS! The past two years of storylines in Incredible Hercules have been building to one climactic moment, and here it arrives at last! The final showdown between Hercules and Typhon! Amadeus Cho becomes a true hero at last! And just why was Athena so happy at the end of "Sacred Invasion," anyway? All secrets are revealed in what is undoubtedly the most shocking ending of the year! Don't tell the Internet why we had to call this issue "EVERYBODY DIES!" PLUS! A bonus backup story featuring the AGENTS OF ATLAS!

And quite possibly my favourite cover of the month:

Written by JASON AARON
Penciled by C.P. SMITH
The perfect jumping on point! Wolverine has never had luck with women. They usually die or try to kill him. So what happens when a new woman enters his life? You think you know how this one goes, but this one issue will stop even Wolverine dead in his tracks! This is the place to start reading if you’re not already -- with stunning art by C.P. Smith, Jason Aaron is better than ever at what he does.

Heh.  Aaron probably gets Wolverine more than any writer currently working (though I quite like Millar's version too).

So Mystique doesn't wear anything under her costume now?

And I just realised the sheer implications of that. What if she takes off her coat and then has to make a quick getaway, leaving it hung up? Does it just wither into a big anorak made out of sticky blue skin?

Yeah, but we've seen what it looks like under there.

I was going to say "obligatory superwoman posed in a thong" but her dress is cut pretty high up and...sigh.

Who's that between Jean and Yuriko?

Oh and I hope that Pak isn't going to go the way of Voldemort with this if someone does post it here: Don't tell the Internet why we had to call this issue "EVERYBODY DIES!".

Okay, I recognize Domino, Jean and Mystique and Emma is at the very back(?). Who are the others?

If not for the red hair and the fact that she's not wearing leather I'd actually guess that was Yokio. She's worn that hairstyle a couple of times.

Maybe a colorist error?

The only other redheaded woman in Logan's life I can think of is Heather Hudson, and that doesn't look like her, so I'll second that "maybe colorist error"?

No Silver Fox? No Mariko? BOOOO!

Cho becomes a true hero at last? That doesn't sound good for him.

[personal profile] long_silence 2009-11-16 08:43 pm (UTC)(link)
His sister isn't.

Maybe he'll try to pull a heroic sacrifice stunt.

What the heck's Emma doing with "Logan's women"?

She thought that there was an orgy going on and decided to jump in but was sorely disappointed and decided to get drunk anyway?

Is there any speculation that Daredevil taking over the Hand might have been Stick's original "plan" for Matt Murdock? I don't know if it was stated if Stick had a bigger reason in mind for training Young!Matt beyond being a red-clad vigilante.

I think it was at least hinted that he wanted Matt to join the Chaste. Matt just wasn't wired that way.

[personal profile] starwolf_oakley 2009-11-16 10:31 pm (UTC)(link)
Hmm. Matt would be more willing to lead the Hand as a force of good rather than join the Chaste, who spend most of their time on top of a mountain.

[personal profile] cainofdreaming 2009-11-17 12:22 pm (UTC)(link)
Well, it wasn't a case of Matt's willingness, he wasn't given a choice, but the fact that Stick considered Matt's mental hangups unsuitable for Chaste.

I kinda agree with him.

More than hinted, it's said outright in Man Without Fear.

In that story, Matt and Elektra are referred to as the 'only two adepts' of that generation, which was confusing considering how many magic practitioners and superninjas there are.

The current storyline expanded on that, I believe. I THOUGHT it said they were the only two adepts who could come out of the Hand intact.

Oh look! Daredevil is fighting ninjas again!

That Wolverine cover looks pretty promising. Love the 'tap tap tap' and 'whatever' expression on his face.

Get Domino out of there and I'm happy with the cover.

Then why did you tell me when they're sleeping together?

Though Emma's lmfao O face and Mystique's manliness.

that wolverine cover is hilarious

[personal profile] sevarem 2009-11-16 09:31 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm loving happy, drunk Emma on the back of the Wolverine cover. This looks like it could have a lot of potential. I really need to start picking up this title.

Though what the hell's going on with Cap? He looks so.. bloated.

Unless the blond is Seraph, that cover is stupid.
