Wolverine appeared in three titles this past week (April 1, 2009), on one other and made a cameo in yet another from last week…
So on with the reviews…
The art by Ariel Olivetti, as always, is stunningly beautiful, but the issue itself is not quite as good as the ‘Messiah War’ one-shot.
Deadpool is his usual funny self, unfortunately Duane Swiercyznski is stuck with unenviable task of telling nearly a thousand years of history.
And Deadpool is his narrator.
So all in all, a necessary and humorous issue, but one that doesn’t quite hold up to chapter one…
More of the same in this bizarrely over-the-top series.
Tyger Tiger shows up in grand fashion. But due to the opening credits-style entrances of every character so far, I was thrown by the lack of an introduction for a punky Asian girl.
Jubilee? Random Tyger Tiger nurse from Madripoor?
Shockingly enough, Wolverine actually gets some dialogue in this issue.
Only he’s not Wolverine.
He’s Captain Terror.
In fact, Wolverine as Captain Terror gets more lines than Wolverine as Wolverine in the last three issues combined.
I repeat again, why is Wolverine in this series?
Finally, Wolverine appears, thankfully, only on the cover of Assistant-Sized Marvel Spectacular #1 (preview) and from last week (courtesy of Comusiv once again), comes a Wolverine television cameo within the pages of The Mighty Avengers #23…
