Dark Avengers #176 (What up? Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Thu Jun 21, 2012 4:44 pm

Is it really a good idea to use your second issue as an Avengers title and all of the extra readers that should bring in focussing on a bunch of characters who aren’t the Dark Avengers? Not that I’m complaining, I love this team of Thunderbolts and I’m glad the book hasn’t changed too much, but it’s not too clever from a sales perspective, eh, what do I know? Nothing! Anyways, this was a good, as we return to the time-lost Thunderbolts, who are stuck in the very very distant past, and I mean dinosaurs and shit. The two main events here were the rebirth of the Man-Thing, which was good timing, and also a surprising source of comedy. The new Man-Thing can speak, and not only that, he sounds different to each person, so to an idiot like Boomerang he sounds like a ‘gangsta’. It’s a fun idea, and it’s rife with potential, I personally can’t wait to see him say ‘Sweet Christmas!’ to Luke Cage. The other big event was the involvement of another time-traveler, Doctor Doom. I guessed it was him, but it was still a great reveal, especially Boomerang’s reaction, ‘the one time we do something nice and it’s Doctor Doom!’. It seems like this is Doom from a point in time just after Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch’s run where he was shoved into the past by his evil master, and that’s a story I wasn’t really expecting to show up ever again, yet alone in this book. Jeff Parker is developing a Busiek-esque skill at using continuity in unexpected ways.

I would love to see what happens when the Thunderbolts and the Dark Avengers finally meet.
