Or – “What He Means Is Old Testament, Mr. Mayor, Real Wrath-Of-God Type Stuff.” So, Marvel’s solicitations have been making a great mystery over who or what Norm-O’s “secret weapon” is.  Last issue, we found that founding Dark Avenger Sentry has once again gone ‘El Bonzo Seco,’ and may have an agenda all his own.  These two statements are probably related in some way, and since he is ostensibly the most powerful creature in the Marvel Universe, this could be “crossing-the-streams” bad…

Iron Man: “Steve.” Captain America: “Tony.” Iron Man: “So, it’s good to–” Captain America: “Wait, are we friends again?  I’m never sure…” Iron Man: “Um…  This is after Rebirth?” Captain America: “I…  I think so?  I don’t exactly remember.” Iron Man: “So, have you rebooted my brain yet?” Captain America: “Probably, you’re standing up and wearing your ugly movie armor again.” Iron Man: “So, we’re friends, then.” Captain America: “So I can ask what

Or – “Where’s My Santa On The Shaver, Dammit?” Sometimes the holidays turn into a blur of food and family and spectacle, like the Roman Empire right before the Dark Ages. When that happens, it’s good to have Rapid Fire Reviews: Reading the comics, so you don’t have to!

 Or – “Whatever Happened To Noh-Varr?” One of the more vexing things about the Dark Avengers title is the fact that, because of the timing of the stories, Noh-Varr (aka Marvel Boy and the latest Kree warrior to call himself Captain Marvel) disappeared from Norman’s team MONTHS ago our time, but has apparently been missing for approximately 16 minutes in the stories.  This annual promises to tell us where the hero has been, but the question is, will the answers be meaningful, or will they just set up the next big crossover event?

Or – “Hey, Vent! You Ready To Move Out?” When you read monthly comic books the way that I do, often times you get to the point where you feel like you know what’s coming, when every title feels like you’ve read it before. On the other hand, you have the odd experience where you read a title or issues that you KNOW you’ve read before, but you cannot for the life of you remember how it’s supposed to end. With over a hundred monthly titles coming out, sometimes you need to play catchup, you need to go where everybody

Or – “More Colons Than Your Average Proctologist…” One of the only missteps of the whole Dark Reign crossover, for me, has been the characterization of Clint Barton, the hero now known as Ronin.  As Hawkeye, he was willing to leave his beloved wife over the implication that she even ALLOWED someone to die, much less committed murder, and now he’s willing to kill Norman Osborn to prove a point?  It’s an odd change of characterization for me, which makes the whole thing questionable.  What’s the Marvel equivalent of a Tom Welling Prime punch?
