shinysylver: (Avengers - steve - costume 2)
Between my trip to Vegas and the desire to rewatch the entire series of Supernatural it has engendered in me (see my tumblr and twitter for updates about THE GREAT SPN REWATCH OF 2013), I have gotten a bit behind on my comics. But, never fear, I am catching up!

Here are my thoughts on last week's comics and I should be picking up this week's sometime in the next day or two.

Age of Ultron #2 - This issue is more set up and explanation of the world and some of the characters left to live in it. I've never read Moon Knight before, but he and Natasha seem like a good match together. Appropriately ruthless. Natasha's eye hurts me to look at. I liked the setting of Fury's old hideout for them. The other part of the book is Spidey's story (which I assume gets fleshed out in the AU of his own title) but I have a question. Is this still Ock!Spidey or not? He read more like Peter here to me, but that means nothing. Anyone got any insight? It looks like next issue our heroes go into action. It was good seeing Cap finally stand up to lead and damn his shield was REALLY broken this event. (It seems to get broken in a lot of events...)

Thor: God of Thunder #6 - Here we get Gorr's origin story. The story is pretty predictable. He grows up in a very religious society where everything horrible that can happen does. This leads him to atheism until he realizes that gods are in fact real, which then turns him to his mission of extermination. The most interesting part of this issue for me was his interaction with Volstagg. Volstagg rightly calls a spade a spade and questions Gorr about his own godhood. Gorr seems to have never questioned what his own immortality and immense power since gaining his god killing weapon means. Also, how strange was it to see such a slim, muscular Volstagg?! I was having all sorts of Volstagg feels. He was just so strong and heroic despite his immense suffering.

Fearless Defenders #2 - We are still meeting characters and spending time on how they interact with each other, and I'm enjoying it. I'm really liking the fun, adventurous tone of this book. It makes me happy.

Uncanny X-Men #3 - This was such a good issue! The beauty of this being Cyclops' comic is that we get to see the things that he is right about instead of just the things that he is wrong about. I loved his little convo with Cap. And speaking of Cap, I loved the way our Time Stopping mutant really related to him even before she got her powers and then all the kids had a bit of a starstruck moment when he showed up. All the things with Magneto are fun. Is he a spy? A double agent? A double, double agent? And finally, I love the snarky little moments between Emma and Scott that don't do anything to hide the real, deep trust they still have for each other. So, I wonder how many of Wolverine's students are going to jump ship for Cyclops' school?

Fantastic Four #5 - This was a Ides of March themed issue involving time travel to Ancient Rome. I'm glad to see Reed come clean with Sue and it was nice to see him panic about his illness in his own way. I love his more human moments. I'm a bit concerned about Ben because something seemed to happen to him during the gladiator fight. Is he getting sick now too? And finally who was that alien!Caesar and what is he up to in the present timeline? And why does he seem focused on Johnny?

That was it for last week. What did you all think about comics last week?
