Fear Itself #7.2 (Tanarus Lives! Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Nov 13, 2011 11:59 am

Now that was a cool twist! I really like the idea that Tanarus has kind of retroactively replaced Thor throughout all of history. It’s a great concept and it suggests some really exciting possibilities, especially for what happens when Thor comes back, will the other Avengers side with him, or Tanarus? I also like the fact that Kid Loki is the only one who knows something’s up. I think the best thing about this issue was the approach Fraction took to the ideas of myth and gods and the like, how it’s stories. It’s an idea approaching similar material that the likes of Gaiman and Moore would cover, and it’s cool to see Fraction stretch his legs. But enough of that metaphysical babble, the best thing in this issue was Captain America casually strolling around with Mjolnir in his belt, how awesome was that? Kubert’s art was great too, but I do have a nagging problem with the fact that both major deaths in Fear Itself have been revealed to not be proper deaths so quickly. I realise one should never believe a character is dead, but so soon?

Two things: I had always thought the Enchantress was actually Idunn so I was confused when she showed up. This was the best comic with Tanarus in it, ever, I think this is a poorly conceived idea.
