After the fun of last week, I was sure that this week the Secret Wars to have more actual story. Well, that really didn’t happen, but the consolation is both impressive and fun.
Ever wondered what would happen if M.O.D.O.K. fell in love? With Angela? As in Thor‘s sister, Angela? Also known as Asgard’s Assassin? Of course, in the Battleworld, Angela is a Thor, and she’s trying to kill M.O.D.O.K. Just the set-up for this comic was enough to blow my mind. Reading it was even more fun!
The second comic I want to talk about this week is Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies.
Marvel seem to be betting on Marvel Zombies for the post Secret Wars universe. With Elsa Bloodstone‘s fantastic comic two weeks ago, and now this title, which features an Ultron that won in his universe and runs its own area of the wastelands, a steampunk era Hank Pym, and, of course, a large number of zombies.
Finally, I have to mention Infinity Gauntlet.
The first issue of this one was good, but it didn’t rate a mention in my weekly report, but this one features Thanos killing Thanos, a family of Novas (including a Nova dog), and Starlord and Gamora collecting Infinity stones.
Oh, and two Infinity Gauntlets.
Yeah. It’s kinda epic.
There’s more, but I’m sure all of you would like to read them for yourself!
Here’s hoping for some actual story next week. The Secret Wars (and most other Marvel events) is like the MCU, in a way: The Avengers movies are the main story that pulls everything together, but can be viewed without the rest, while the rest add so many layers to the main story.
Now it’s your turn, folks: Is M.O.D.O.K. and Angela the craziest Marvel love story you can think of, or can you go one better? Let me know in the comments!
See you next week!
