New Avengers #5 (It's gibberish Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Apr 26, 2013 10:20 am

Given that I absolutely despised #1 of this title, in which most of it was Black Swan nonsense, it should come as no surprise that I didn’t really like this issue either. I don’t care about this Black Swan character, her origin is stupid and the way she speaks is emblematic of the worst aspects of Hickman’s writing. It’s made even worse when Hickman chooses to gloss over what could have been awesome fight between The Illuminati and alternate universe Terrax for more prognosticating and nonsense words. At least he somewhat recognises that fact and has Namor call out Black Swan for talking gibberish, his presence has been a constant delight in this book, he’s just such a dick.

There are positives here, and I’m sure that this title will rebound again. The fact that our heroes kidnapped alterna-Terrax is very interesting, it’s really fascinating to see these guys go even further and further down the dark path. The fact that the next incursion is in Latveria is also awesome, I can’t wait to see how that goes down. Steve Epting’s artwork was brilliant as usual, he’s so good. So yeah, not the best issue of New Avengers, but there was enough here to make it not totally shite.

Didn't like a Black Swan issue? Must be intimidated by strong women.

Yeah, I really wanted to see the fight with Terrax. I don't mind Black Swan as a character and this issue shed a little more light on her which I thought was cool. I also liked how she hinted that Hank is a large and important figure throughout the multiverse. And yes, Hickman may be writing the best Namor in years.

I liked the fight scene with Terrax. It was like "I AM TERRAX! I AM BETTER THAN YOU ALL!" And then Black Bolt was like "nigga please" and Deebo'd him. That's how it should be.

Somebody should create an MWKA twitter feed to combat sexism against Marvel female characters. :wink:

I hated that the fight scene was told in flashback. Maybe we need a second title to tell this story - one that tells this story as the big Kirby crunching summer popcorn movie action flick it's dying to be.
