MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK
We’re all trying to be better stewards of the planet at Major Spoilers, but sometimes trying to be green leads to a bit of conflict – especially when Marvel and DC are involved. This week it is the battle of the creatures from the bog; Swamp Thing and Man-Thing.
MAJOR SPOILERS DISCUSSION: Aphrodite IX
Aphrodite IX Trade Paperback collects issues #1-4 of the series of the same name as well as the hard to find issue #0 plus incredible bonus art by Marc Silvestri (Civil War: The Initiative, Hunter-Killer), Joe Benitez (Supergirl), and Michael Turner (Superman/Batman, Ultimate Wolverine). Aphrodite IX is the perfect weapon, only she doesn’t know it. She’s programmed to kill and then erases all memory of her mission and her former life, like a reset button was hit in her mind. Now the ideal assassin wants to know who programmed her and she won’t stop until she finds out!
