The Night Starts Here

Since Volume 1 finished this week, I want to have a little look back at some bits from S.H.I.E.L.D. (officially the worst comic to type), specifically The Night Machine.

When he first appears in #1, he's revealed as being Leonid's father and then picks a fight with Nathaniel Richards and Howard Stark.

But that wasn't the first time that Stark and Richards encountered the Night Machine.

They investigate the room, only to find that when they look back at the body, it's gone, leaving a pool of blood on the floor.

When The Night Machine reappears in the Eternal City, they shoot him in the stomach to find out that there's more to the Night Machine than meets the eye.

Nathaniel Richards accidentally send them all into the future (as you do)

That would have been a dramatic reveal had I not revealed it further up the page. Still, it looks very nice. And yes, the woman in white is The Night Machine's dove.

At the appendix there's a list of Tesla's machines.

That's right, the Five Fists of Science - a shout out from one Architect to another.

And just to see one of those machines in action, Assassin's Creed: the Fall: #2

or is that the Superman was susceptible to magic because he had no Homo Magi in him.

That is stupid. It applies to a rather large chunk of the superhero population and only seems to effect Clark.
