A History of Doom: Infamous Iron Man #1

A History of Doom: Infamous Iron Man #1

We’ve now passed the precipice of Civil War II, we have all the post civil war storylines starting to reveal themselves and tiptoe around the fact that the last issue of Civil War or it’s tie-ins have yet to be released. This issue paints a very clear picture of what happened at the end of the Civil War II books without actually saying it aloud. I won’t be going into the thick of it, but when the event started you could see where it was going and your suspicions are most likely right. With that being said, I still want to read the last issue of Civil War II just for the closure, just to know where everything shakes out and what I can be expecting for the new Marvel NOW! 2016 fall stories. I really should stop talking about Civil War II so much, which is another reason why I want it to be over, so I can stop prefacing my reviews with it. For this issue, as always, I’ll be avoiding spoilers as deftly as possible because it isn’t fair to the creators or to the readers. I’ll also avoid them because I want a Doctor Doom focused book to sell so I can continue reading this new chapter in Doom’s tragic and redeeming life.  Continue reading “A History of Doom: Infamous Iron Man #1”

Bringing Back The Classics: Dead No More – The Clone Conspiracy #1 Review

Bringing Back The Classics: Dead No More – The Clone Conspiracy #1 Review

With Civil War II (nearly) over, it’s time for every other event to start setting itself up. We had the Death of X X-Men story start last week, which I reviewed, that will lead into the next big event Inhumans Vs X-Men. With Dead No More, we see the return of Miles Warren aka The Jackel, who absolutely loves making clones of Spider-Man, his villains, and his closest friends. I’ll avoid spoilers for the most part, this is a longer issue with 2 stories inside coming in at 30 or so pages but I’ll only review the first story since the second story is a spoiler of the end of the first.  Continue reading “Bringing Back The Classics: Dead No More – The Clone Conspiracy #1 Review”

Is This The End?: Death Of X 1 of 4 Review

Is This The End?: Death Of X 1 of 4 Review

Here we go, time for another X-Men event that will shake their position in the Marvel Universe. Taking place before the still ongoing Civil War II event, Death of X is going to tell the story of what is obviously stated in the title, the death of the X-Men; or maybe just the tying up of a few loose ends. Before we get into this issue, you should know about the  effect the Terrigen mist has on mutants. It afflicts the mutant race with a disease called M-Pox, which is lethal to mutants. In a few books we’ve already seen it’s effects on Rogue in Uncanny Avengers and at the beginning of this book, the effect on our Uncanny X-Men. Like most of my reviews, I try and steer away from spoiler territory but some plot points will need to be discussed briefly. You’ve been warned.
