As a huge fan of Matt Fraction’s Iron Fist run, it was absolutely brilliant to have him back writing in that world, even if he had to go and kill off a bunch of the Immortal Weapons and turn one of them evil. At least Fat Cobra didn’t bite it, he’s so awesome. This issue was probably my favourite issue of this title so far, and it went some way towards explaining what’s been going on, and just how this title is going to explore the ‘secret history’ of the Marvel Universe. So let me get this straight, these weird engine things, you can’t talk about them, and it’s for that reason that characters like Orson Randall from the past remained unknown until they finally show up in the present. Fraction is providing an in-story reason for retcons, and it’s working a hell of a lot better than ‘Superboy punched a wall’. As well as the coolness of this back-story stuff, this issue also featured some fantastic individual moments, such as all of Orson Randall’s past adventures, Silver Surfer’s general weirdness and then whatever it was he transformed into in order to barf John Aman into a volcano, that thing was freaky. And of course, the little bottom-of-the-page notes continue to entertain and enlighten.
