Uncanny Avengers #6
(Remender & Acuna)
From the cover there's some guy who could be Thor posing against some guy twice his size (from the page 1 recap that mentions Kang, I assume it was some new Growing Man variant).
Well whomever they are the story is set in exactly 1000 years ago and I quickly find out I'm wrong about who the (now not as gigantic) giant is. It's that lame X-Factor foe who was brought into the other X-Books about the same time as I grew infinitely bored with the whole X-concept and dropped them all from my pull.
So, no interest in the villain of the month for me. But Thor, he's okay and I'm hoping he finishes the guy in a page or two (the opposite happens
Some good old Kirby fashion Thor vs Daddy talk takes place (the best part of the book imo) but it gets ruined when who I assume is a Kang in disguise is not detected by Odin (who either knows it's not Loki and therefore is allowing events to happen - or he's just not the all knowing all powerful he supposed to be).
Then comes the sheer stupidity in the book. Folkbern Logan
who's "the finest there is at what you choose to do" .
He conveniently is the only guard not killed despite being the only target
The rest of the book is basically Thor's revenge before a single last page with some Kang/Tut/Baron Mordo stuff that finally had me wondering what is Kang up to? Wish I cared during the preceding 18 pages.
Acuna's art is the best thing in the book. He's improved a lot on his coloring too (except for Apoca having 'pink' blood
). His 'in the rain' scenes were quite well done.
