The Young Avengers and the Scarlet Witch are FINALLY coming back to the spotlight in the Marvel universe! Avengers: The Children’s Crusade #1 kicks the whole event off as Wiccan’s reality bending gets an unexpected kick up to the next level. Like Scarlet Witch level. Which will prompt him on a journey (or Crusade, if you will) to find the Magenta Maven herself to figure out what’s the haps with his newfound ability. I’m excited and Jesus is excited, so you should be too.
Phew, Adi Granov does a mean cover, doesn’t he? X-Force #28 is the penultimate chapter of the fantastic Second Coming event and I couldn’t be happier for this wait to be over! Could Hope’s powers finally manifest? Is she really going to summon the Phoenix Force? Can Cable survive now that the TO virus is running rampant in his system? Just call me a hunk of burning questions, because this has been one king storyline, leading right into a relaunch of the X-Men title!
X-Men #1 is just that title! I’m a little leery about the set-up (mutants vs. vampires?) but that could be because I’m relatively new to the whole Marvel experience. Or that it’s kind of a wonky idea. In any case, I’m sure an intriguing plotline will manifest at some point on this brand new day for our favorite mutants!
Man, what Bastards in this week’s Young Allies #2! Ha ha, I come at you with my puns, have at thee! With all the destruction and downright evil the BoE showed our Allies last month it’ll be a miracle if they can hobble together a happy ending for everyone. Very notable start to the series so I’m looking forward to where these characters can go.
