Spider-Gwen's Matt Murdock took a more direct hand this week.

He'd only indirectly been a threat to our hero so far.

That's not to say he'd been a man of inaction for all his career.

He'd made his bones by solving a problem for the Kingpin with his bare hands. )

Secret Wars: Civil War images

Charles Soule: It begins six years after the point where the original Civil War ended, by Captain America surrendering to Iron Man in the big Times Square battle. However, in this story, that didn’t happen, and the Civil War didn’t end. In fact, it spilled out, became much larger, and involved every person in the country, powered or not.

It’s completely self-contained. For all intents and purposes, it’s the United States, although changed drastically due to six years of super-hero Civil War. Steve Rogers holds one territory, called the Blue (whose capital city is Liberation), and Tony Stark holds the other, called the Iron (the capital there is Resilient Alpha). They feel very different, as you might expect. There are many surprises hiding in the Warzone beyond that, but let’s let the readers find them on their own, yeah?

Nikoleta Harrow's story ended with Marvel Knights: Hulk.

Nikoleta Harrow's story largely was Marvel Knights: Hulk.

(That wasn't a bad thing; the Hulk's suited to playing a reactive role.)

The four-issue Joe Keatinge/Piotr Kowalski mini opened with Bruce Banner face down in the Seine. A lady pulled him out and took him home to her uncle's spare apartment. The next day, she took him to a bar for a drink.

There, two men on his trail confronted him. Amnesiac, he fled; determined, they followed.

On their boss's orders, they injected themselves with a green serum that transformed them into towering Hulks. They pursued Banner through the streets and the Metro, catching his subway car and hurling it into the Louvre.

Then they exploded.

Bruce, the only survivor, was taken into the police's custody.

Then he was explosively abducted by Nikoleta Harrow, who took him off to her base in Pripyat and tried to make him turn into the Hulk she needed.

Her efforts failed. )

Here's two villains of a kind.

One of them's the Rose.

The other's the Crime-Master.

Both of them're gonzo masterminds, legacies whose predecessors were gangsters that fought Spider-Man. The Rose menaced Michael Morbius in Joe Keatinge and Richard Elson's take on the Living Vampire, in the same way as the Crime-Master did Flash Thompson in Rick Remender and Tony Moore's Venom.

The threats they presented were different from those of the ones whose names they'd taken.

(Two warnings- first, there's close to forty images under this cut.

Second, there's some violence.)

Theirs were grander in scope and scale. )

New Avengers #33 - Dr. Doom's Supermodel Religion


"Oh, man….Working with Hickman was easy because he’s such a great writer. He’s also he’s an artist himself, so he knows how to extract the best out of the artists he’s working with." - Mike Deodato

While superboysprime tends to cover Hickman's Avengers work, I like to highlight just a specific scene myself from the last issue of New Avengers. It involves the origin of the Black Swans!

All-New Ultimates was an All-Different book.

Its setting wasn't the world as a whole, but the streets of post-Galactus New York.

Its protagonists weren't a government team, but some Ultimate Spidey characters and Kitty Pryde stepping up to fill the void left in the Cataclysm's wake.

Its stories didn't concern world-shaking threats, but comparatively lesser malcontents and mercenaries.

It wasn't bad for all those things. It also wasn't especially exciting.

I don't mean that to say anything against it. )
