Honestly, I may have to stop reviewing this series because it is so childish, so patronizingly childish. But Wolverine appears, so what am I going to do?
Granted this issue did have a few amusing moments, but for the most part, it’s pointless, painful and not something that will ever promote the younger audience to read Marvel comics.
So how about I ramble on a little more about my idea from last month that got such positive feedback last time.
To refresh your memories… I suggested Marvel consider a ‘Young Logan’ series that chronicles Logan’s training to become a ninja under Ogun back in the 1930s.
Imagine something in the vein of ‘Naruto’ or ‘Runaways’ that deals with the tension over his training from an evil immortal, interactions and jealousies with other ‘forgotten’ pupils, fights with other ninja ‘schools’, Logan’s destiny as a ‘failed’ samurai…
And if you really want to appeal to today’s youth, consider a weekly black & white comic.
So how about it, Marvel? Want to give me a shot at writing this awesome new series?
Is this thing on?
