Mystery Men #5 (Keen Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Sep 14, 2011 1:46 pm

A strong ending to a really enjoyable mini-series. Was anyone else weirded out by seeing Baron Zemo’s face? It’s one of those things you never think of. Things had looked pretty hopeless at the end of #4, so it was cool to see The Operative bring everyone back together for an attack on the General’s Zeppelin. I love being able to type sentences with ‘Zeppelin’ in them, I just love the big flammable death machines. Patrick Zircher’s art was brilliant as usual, and Liss gave every character a chance to shine. I think The Surgeon is my favourite, he’s just hilariously weird, the scene where he injects whisky into his veins was awesome. The stuff with Lindbergh and Nox was interesting, and looks like it could be setting us up for a sequel. I hope we get one, because this was a great blend of Marvel Comics and Pulp Heroes, and a time period that really deserves to be explored some more.

I wasn't weirded out by Heinrich Zemo's face. The story takes place before his mask was bonded to his face so it made sense to see it.

My favourite part of this issue was seeing the Operative decapitate the General.

I looked up Nox on wikipedia, had no idea she was an old Dr Strange villain. It was cool seeing Heinrich Zemo too as an antagonist for the Mystery Men.

I'm just reaching here, but with the Nazi plot thread out there, you guys think the sequel will be dealing with Nazi espionage during the war?

Possibly, I just hope there is a sequel.
