"Marvel's quite interesting in that people were saying 'Aunt May grew up in the twenties!' But I think that Marvel has been quite cleverly vague about that for 40 years. Peter Parker doesn't become Spider-Man in the early '60s, he became Spider-Man ten or twelve years ago. In 50 years' time, he'll just have become Spider-Man ten or twelve years ago. So in that sense, this story is set and then ends nine months before Peter Parker enters the world."

The best way to describe Red One is "a sexy mess".

I tried to do a little summary for the premise, where the Cold War era Russians (but not the Cold War era Russians that we would recognise) send an agent to America (characterised by a schism between "family values", of homophobia and prudishness, and a free love agenda) to win a cultural war by becoming a superhero and cultural icon while also fighting with a hammer (which she throws at a bullet, stopping it) and sickle, and there was a porn film involved, and a "moral crusader" who was styled as an unkillable Amish called The Carpenter and, it takes place with SALT in the background and... it's nonsense.

But nonsense doesn't have to mean the same as bad.

But, it's secured the art team of the Dodsons, and that means that everybody looks lovely.

I've picked out a four page sequence from #4 where Red One decides to go out and be superheroic, like her handlers wanted (sort of. even that bit flip flops around).

tw for the beginning of a rape scene )

So, that's Red One being a bit too extreme and direct, and that's even before her very brief stint as a fluffer.

"The fun for me is seeing these characters, who are very grounded and very realistic kids, and then have these insane things starting to happen, and then having them be able to react to it the way maybe a normal teenager would, as opposed to a teenager who's grown up in 50 years of superheroes flying around them."

There are two distinct stories in this arc. The first has Leia, accompanied by smuggler Sana Starros, dropping vader's sidekick, the recently captured Dr Aphra, off at Sunspot Prison, the Rebellion's most secret pentientiary, where she can be kept until trial. And then there's a rather unusual prison break.... kinda

The second has Luke and Han going on what SHOULD have been a simple supplies run, but Han gambles and loses the money they were going to use to buy everything, leaving them flat broke in a dodgy neighbourhood.


An interesting ethical dilemma )

And we discover that a certain insult in 'Empire' might have a grain of truth to it )
