People in New York are being bit and waking up with Spider-powers. Not all of them Spider-man powers, but spider related.

We get a LOT of the players who will be involved in this story.

And we get hints at the henchmen, and a teaser about the Big Bad for Spider Island event.

And while I fan-hate Carlie, I can't help but wonder where this is going.

I will follow this.

[personal profile] shadowpsykie already posted four three pages of how Diana got here. Here's three one more pages showing how Diana gets the best of Nemesis.

As seen below, Original Flavor Diana is now a host for Nemesis. Clotho split off a fragment of Di, her innocent self, and created the Odyssey world to keep her safe and have her raised in the Amazon tradition despite the destruction of the island. As they fight, Nemesis!Di explains that she doesn't need nu!Diana to keep her foothold in the world, but to keep the world's hatred and murder flowing, she has to bring its greatest noblest warrior to heel. So she set about destroying everyone and everything nu!Diana loves, to crush her spirit and make her hate the modern world.

nu!Diana drops the little sketch of Wonder Woman her young friend gave her at Nemesis' feet, and explains that as she lived in the modern world she became part of it - its inhabitants are her brothers and sisters now. So, she's still a noble champion.

And that's where we piick things up here )

"It didn't work. It could never work...The soul of an amazon could never be bent to your brand of hate. I could NEVER be your champion," Diana says to the fading out of the Morrigan.

But she doesn't notice the Morrigan reappear behind her, and grab the big-ass sword. "In that case, Diana of Themiscyra...YOU CAN DIE!!!" dun dun DUNNNNN

This is four pages from vengeance the new marvel mini that is supposed to be about its villians, and new villains looking up to them. Personally I did not enjoy it, they jumped charachters into situations(some of them are new) and give little back story or exposition. Not to mention I thought they were supposed to be villians while no one in this issue was evil at all. Worst Magneto was made to look like a scrub...no just no.

Marvels big bad have changed their stripes. Magneto an Xmen, Doom at the Richards family table(this has been interesting), and Loki a innocent child. Jesus Christ: Ultron, Mandarin, Kingpin, Osborn, Carnage anybody that stays on the true path please come back to us. Thanos and Red Skull are dead so those guys can not whip MU into shape. Just like in videogames all the good bad guys are losing their venom(even venom is good now).

In 1979, the character ROM, SPACEKNIGHT was introduced. It was a toy tie-in comic (something Marvel got heavily into at the time), and despite the toy failing rather quickly, it was excellent. No, seriously, it was a fun super-hero story, it was a reversal of the standard alien invasion cliche of the time, it was a meditation on the meaning of sacrifice, the essence of humanity, and the disconnect between war veterans and the peaceful society that requires soldiers to defend their way of life.

And it will probably never be reprinted, because Marvel doesn't hold the rights to the character. Oh, they hold the rights to the villains, the supporting characters, everyone else, but not the title character. Despite this, he's shown up a few times in "stealth cameo" form, never mentioned by name, and usually out of the sleek, iconic bodyshell he's normally depicted in, and there was a (rather disappointing) sequel to his series in the . . . last ten years or something. But it was, as I said, rather disappointing. Anyway, Parker Bros. supposedly still holds the rights, and the rights to his likeness (hence "stealth cameos"), and for whatever reason, they've never allowed Marvel to have 'em back (maybe the licensing fees are just too high? I don't know.) which is frustrating because the comic outlasted the toy by like 5 years, and PB haven't done a thing with ROM since their toy failed. It'd be different if they were trying to revive the toy, or something, but nope. They do nada.

Anyway, for a toy tie-in, of a failed toy, need I remind you, ROM SPACEKNIGHT lasted 75 issues, 4 annuals, several cameos (both stealth and non) and in the memories of fans all over. Here he comes.
