The crossover, Dangerous Currency, will go like this:
- Duck Tales #5 Part One
- Darkwing Duck #17 Part Two
- Duck Tales #6 Part Three (End of that series)
- Darkwing Duck #18 Part Four (End of that series)
As this will end the series, this crossover should be dangerous and therefore the villains should be dangerous too! In duck Tales #4 (check out my review), it was revealed that Magica De Spell would be returning to deal with Scrooge and company. She also appeared in Darkwing Duck #16 (which I also reviewed!). Heres who i know will be on the Villain team:
- Magica De Spell (who fought Darkwing in the Crisis on Infinite Darkwings arc)
- Ratface (who was Magica's compainion in the comics for several years agianst Scrooge's crew)
- Poe De Spell (the brother of Magica who got turned into a raven. Previously only appeared on Duck Tales the TV show)
- Camile Chameleon (Originally a Darkwing villain, this character has made her first comic appearence fighting Scrooge)
- Cinnamon Teal (a hypnotist spy who has been fighting Scrooge sense the show and now the Comic)
- and finally...The Phantom Blot!
Basically, Magica has joined forces with the Phantom Blot and they have in their possession this inky black stuff, which had been creating super villains out of ordinary St. Canard citizens in Darkwing Duck the comic (such as Cat-Tankerous or One-shot).
The thing is, based on previous DWD stories (written by Ian Brill), there is actually two Antagonist Groups. One is the more visible one (in the past it was the fearsome five, the Darkwings of the multiverse, and FOWL), whose plan and operations were known by the readers. however, there is the surprise group; the character who you are surprised about. In the past, that position was filled by Taurus Bulba, Paddywhack, Duckthulhu and most recently: Magica De Spell and the Phantom Blot (at the end of the mayoral arc).
So who might the surprise antagonist be? I'm not sure. It could be Negaduck, who is not present on the above cover. However, Gosalyn has a smile on her face, which leads me to believe it is something like aliens or something...Though it is probably something more familiar to one of the two franchises...I'll have to think about it...
While we don't have that much info, based on the covers and the preview for the coming soon Duck Tales #5, something happened to Fenton Crackshell (aka Gizmo Duck!), but now he's back! and warning of doom, which excites me to read more!
Beyond the hope this crossover gives closure to some questions regarding questions and to the series in general (if this is the end and Marvel is not going to pick it up), i want to see some Duck Tales Darkwing character interaction. Perhaps Honker (the smart character from Darkwing) will meet Gyro Gearloose (the genius from Duck Tales) or Gosalyn would meet Scrooge's nephews (Huey, Louie, and Dewey) as they all have a mischievous characteristics and maybe bond with Webby and get her to be more like the triplets.
I could name off tones of characters I want to appear in the series, but I know it would be hard to fit all of them in there.
I do what to see a resolution to Quackerjack and Negaduck's situations in the series (one has been turned into a toy and the other was slit into multiple parts) and based on the covers it does look like we'll see at least the first one.
Darkwing Duck was the first comic series I followed, so I want to see it end in a good way. I mean without that series, I wouldn't have the wiki points that i have today. It gave me something contstant when the whole New 52 came along, so I want it to be...special...
I'll keep you posted on the progress of this crossover...
