What happens when you twist history and rebuild it based on whatever weird and wacky thought that comes to your mind? If you are Major Spoilers, you hire a band of crazed people from around the world to write for your site. If you are Jonathan Hickman, you bring the Illuminati, aliens, astral projection, robots and Nazis together under one roof. And that is going to cause some problems.
What do Dr. Doom, Batman, Bruce Banner and Wile E. Coyote all have in common? All are super-geniuses. In fact, you can’t throw a rock in a comic book city without hitting a super-genius. But while there are no supermen in real life there have been some super-geniuses. One of the highest concentrations of mega-brainpower was in Los Alamos, working on the Manhattan Project. What if the accumulated brains were not just harnessed to building the atomic bomb, but were directed to much stranger, darker goals? Are you ready to let your inner conspiracy theorist run wild? Find out after the jump.
Open a gateway to anywhere in the universe, and you are asking for trouble… unless you have an Oppenheimer. The Manhattan Projects #5 has arrived, and Major Spoilers takes a peek inside.
In the world of The Manhattan Projects, Jonathan Hickman has given everyone an interesting twist – in that they are all completely F’ed in the head.
And I like it.
The strange is about to become bizarre as Jonathan Hickman and Nick Pitarra give us their take on the nuclear bomb program, and who gave the order to drop it on the unsuspecting.
People love a good conspiracy, so one wrapped around the team tasked with developing the first atomic bomb should spark the interest of hippies and men in dark rooms alike.
