I’ve got plenty of patience - and I love classic Doctor Who. But there’s a difference between multi-part episodes having a build up and a payoff and 45 minutes of nothing happening only for the reveal to be “none of this was real, tune back in for the actual alien invasion next week!”, which is what this episode…
True, and the jury is going to be out on this one for at least another episode.
She clearly has so much fun being Killer Frost. I know the only answer is to either turn her back or effectively write her out of the show at some point, but man, I just wish the writers had this much fun writing Caitlin.
Tune back in next season, in the desperate hope that... they don’t do exactly the same thing for the fourth time in a row?
I agree with you, but the thing is, Marvel have also attempted to push the narrative that this plotline has “little to do” with contemporary politics recently, which is the most completely absurd way to go about discussing Secret Empire at all. It’s like you said, a deeply politically-driven story, but through the…
Origins was the wrong word to use there, but the article linked in that sentence does cover Hydra’s original roots. Will update to better reflect what I meant, thank you!
Because even knowing that, presumably, by the end of all this it’ll be right as rain again, I think this issue does a spectacular job—pretty much the one thing I really liked about it—of playing on the tension of us knowing Cap’s “secret” and also the build up of all these events coming to the fore. It’s very…
I’ve been very confused mainly because a lot of the reporting on other sites around that prologue has been that it’s telling us definitively that Cap was always Hydra, and the cosmic cube shenanigans gave us the reality we knew for years and years was the “false” one. But... I don’t see how this one flashback is any…
Ohhhhhhhh shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit this is a good point!
The poster should just be a gif of the shrug Han gives in Return of the Jedi.
I’ve cried like four times in the last hour and that’s far too much. I was a mess when the orchestra started.
I’m all for new comics suggestions—I don’t have the time to read every comic released every week and do my job. You can send recommendations to me on Twitter or my email, which are at the bottom of every one of my posts.
You are doing the Lord’s work, Platypus Man.
It’s almost like there are different opinions that people have, right.
I’m sorry, I was promised a very specific rating system for this review
“someone in the science division” is a funny way to describe a main character who’s been part of the show’s primary cast from the first episode and has like, experience dealing with Hydra both in reality and in the confines of this Framework world.
I actually forgot, it’s been forever since I read SHIELD and Secret Warriors, but a quick search seems to imply that it’s missing at this point.
That’s the thing—as a sort of ridiculous comics thriller, I’ve been really liking this story as well. There’s a lot of fun in seeing where it’s going next, week after week, but at the same time, Marvel’s doing a really bad job of tackling the perceptions around it that have, whether they like it or not, been stoked by…
Read further down and I tackle this. SHIELD is going back and forth on it - yeah, they did the Hive storyline, but the midseason premiere has solidly put them back on “Oh by the way these guys are totally nazis” mode.
