Somber describes the lives of those he writes on their best days.

There was a bit at the end of his Captain America #25 that was a bit lighter, perhaps because it was after the fact that the run'd been building up to.

Heroes were gathering at Avengers Mansion for what Rogue'd heard was something of a celebration.

" And after everything we've been through, we sure as hell need one. "

They did. It was. )

NEWSARAMA: A lot of what made your reputation as a creator were works that had that darkness, that shock value. Do you feel that’s something that you, as a creator, are moving away from, or in what’s becoming more popular in different media?

MILLAR: Yeah, I think things shift – a Batman movie that comes out in 2008 is going to be very different from one that works in 1966, or a Batman movie that works in 2016. Culturally, I think we’re in a very, very different place from 2008 right now, and the darkness and realism that worked brilliantly in 2008 just doesn’t work today.

At the moment, I think that as a culture, we’re more optimistic and forward-thinking than we were eight years ago. The financial crash of 2008 was, I think, a paradigm shift, really, in the culture. I think after that, we started to look more for things that were entertaining. The Avengers hit that zeitgeist very well; Star Wars: The Force Awakens has hit it brilliantly.

I think people are looking for a good time right now, in a way they weren’t looking for 10 or 12 years ago. So when I was doing books like The Ultimates or The Authority or something like that, they were very much of their moment. And the reason they were so popular was because that’s what I, as a member of the audience, I was personally looking for at the time. But what I’m looking for now is stuff that’s like Huck or Empress or whatever.

So Warren Ellis and Declan Shalvey's Injection #5 hit this week, and I think it's...finished? Without spoiling anything, from the story as shown in #5 it is very hard to tell - the immediate plot is wrapped up, but there are also seeds sown for possible future story arcs. Ellis' style is usually executed in 6-12-chapter stories that end somewhat abruptly; but then again, he's gone outside of that with Planetary in the past and Trees currently. Image's website and solicitations do not clear up the matter at all.

In the meantime, though, as a Comp. Lit. graduate, I thought I'd point out some things I noticed.
