Age Of Apocalypse #6 (He could see bullets Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Aug 04, 2012 9:32 am

Dave Lapham wisely continues his string of issues that shed more light on different members of the X-Terminated. This issue’s featured player is Deadeye, who is given an origin, and is shown to have a different perspective on the War to the likes of Stryker. Her origin was very well-told, it was a tragic story really. It’s good that Lapham is fleshing out his cast, and it’s even better that he’s doing it at the same time as he continues the bigger story. So here we see what it was that Stryker was up to when he freed M, who has renamed herself as Penance and seems to represent a threat to Weapon Omega. Stryker plans to help her win the war in return for giving the remaining humans somewhere to live. And initially it looks like it might work, Penance manages to make Colossus switch his loyalties (leading to the fight between him and Cyclops and the cover) but in the end, she bows to Wolverine. Stryker has given her Sugar Man now, and it’s a big mistake. This book is just so fucking grim, but I like it, not everything can be sweetness and light. Not that it is in comics these days, but this makes most superhero comics look like Johnny DC.

This is one book I'm really...enjoying? I love it, but as mentioned, it's a pretty dark one. I can't believe I'm actually happy about Colossus's revival and turn. And somehow, within one issue, I actually like Monet. Something I've not felt for her character since Generation X (sorry Peter David, but your magic didn't work on her for me).

I can't explain my love for this book.

Maybe it's the universe and the quality of the writing.. I don't know. But it's bizarre because it's such a slow burn. At any rate, I love it, and it's nice to see some backstory.

Her bowing to Weapon Omega after what he said to her was classic. I never did get why they turned the AOA Logan into a super-villain but this was one of his best moments in the book as it just made him look badass.

Agreed. It just makes me want him to get his ass handed to him all the more.

Can't wait to read this either thinking of it. An alternate reality book where the writer can do as he pleases? Yes please!
