One-way plane ticket to Weird Japan.
A little bit of an authority problem never hurt anyone. Can't say the same for science, though.
In a world where superheroes can form a union, you have to prepare for the possibility of a strike.
Yeah, that definitely shows in Original Sin as of late as Marvel is already promoting the Axis event
While I don't agree with the excessive use of the word "emo", as I don't think it's really an applicable term to much of anything anymore considering all the implications that come with the term in this day and age, I do agree that this a poorly written and drawn issue in a series that has taken a turn for the worst for a while now. None of the characters talk like themselves, and every conversation has become an ethics lesson or an in-depth look at how someone's past has been effecting this that and the other thing, and that's why everyone's been acting obnoxiously emotional. And how exactly did the Twins find the bodies of these specific people anyhow? They just kind of wrote that off as them having some kind of inter-dimensional morgue or whatever. *Sigh*, I'm getting really tired of Remender's BS
In Immortal Iron Fist (and I'm referring strictly to Fraction's run on it, issues 1-16), though the stakes were high and there was dark elements and focuses within it, the series showed that, through the influences and his relationships with Iron Fist's family (his predecessors, father, Luke Cage, Misty, Jeryn Hogarth, Lei Kung, and even the other Immortal Weapons besides Steel Serpent), Danny became a stronger individual and grew as a person, exactly the opposite of this series, which presents Danny as one who is all alone, secluded from the rest of the world and miserable. The Immortal Iron Fist shows Danny is constantly cracking jokes despite impending doom, and ultimately comes to terms with his fate as the Iron Fist. But he sees it as the danger it is, and doesn't relish fighting, whereas The Living Weapon version shows that he is ONLY happy when doing battle. So, yes, while Immortal Iron Fist definitely had its dark elements and moments, this one is by far the more depressing and negative take on the character, which, in my opinion, doesn't suit the Danny Rand that has been developed throughout the Marvel mythos.
I can't say I agree with you on this; if anything, I feel like this book spoon-feeds its audience more so than anything else on the market, spelling out every single action that occurs throughout the issue. And the narration often sounds more like Chris Claremont talking to the audience rather than Nightcrawler. However, this was a well written review, and I respect your opinion.
Most appreciated, feel free to browse my other reviews (you seem to be the only one reading them :P). I've built up quite a catalog of them over the last few months.
