Fear Itself #6 (Leave your weapons Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Sep 14, 2011 1:45 pm

Not much action in this one, but still plenty of interesting stuff. Captain America facing up to Odin was fucking cool, as was Thor getting some new armour and Tony jumping into the molten iron. Lots of the big, widescreen moments you want in a crossover, but also character-driven smaller scenes like Spider-Man’s reunion with Aunt May. And I bet all those people bitching about Spidey ‘quitting’ are feeling a bit dumb right about now, he’s back! There’s one issue left of this series, and there’s a lot that needs to be resolved, I can’t wait to see how Fraction finishes things and whether it will be Cap or Thor that delivers the final blow to The Serpent. And here is the obligatory mention of Immonen’s art, which was fantastic as usual, great work.

it only took him 6 issues of a 7-issue event, but Fraction finally reminded me why i absolyutely loved his writing no less than just a year ago. by FAR the best issue of this event, and even though FI as a a whole still has huge problems, the character work in this issue was phenomenal. from Cap's verbal tirade, to all the Odin/Thor father/son stuff, to Pete and May's exchange, to Tony's coolness surrounded by Odin and the elves leading to his complete lack of same when taking his leap of faith, to Hawkeye's worry about his best friend, to Steve's resolve at what looks to be the last stand...this was Fraction nailing the heart and soul of pretty much all the big guns i love from Marvel (minus the Thing of course...).

he's finally got me excited about the end of this mini.

Buying 5 issues of crap to get one issue that's good is not worth it, IMO. I mean, at that point I've spent $24 to get 1 good issue. :smt011

Fraction has shown flashes of being good again at times during the Iron Man tie in, but lately his work just hasn't been nearly as good as it was a year or so back. I think he needs to refocus and tone down the social commentary, get back to doing some done-in-one type stories, and stop trying to pad everything out. Like this book, which would have worked much much better as a 4 issue story, IMO.

well, had they actually shown all the important stuff in these 7 issues instead of spreading it out to 800 tie-ins, this could've been a great 7-issue event. instead they wasted time and then out of nowhere had Franklin show up as a deus ex machina, or talk about Paris being destroyed without showing it so the weight of that never hits you if you're not reading IIM, etc.

4 + all the rie-ins, or 7 better paced, either way would've been more enjoyable.

Also would have helped to have some actual surprises in the issues instead of having everything from the first 5 issues shown in various promo pieces and ads that were in every single comic for months beforehand.

I think if you just piled all of your tie in comics since the start of this event, then read all 56 issues at once after the series was done, it would probably read as a really good event.

Did this issue follow up on the "Who are the Mighty" teaser at all?

We saw the weapons Tony made, and he says they are each designed for a specific Avenger, but we don't see who exactly gets what, apart from Iron Man himself.

Is Hank Pym getting a metal glove to use to slap Titania around? He hasn't pulled out his backhand slap in a while. I think it's getting rusty.
