Dark Avengers #177 (I am the Law Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jul 14, 2012 11:28 am

After one issue focusing on the Dark Avengers and another on the Thunderbolts, this issue features both, and does a pretty good job of balancing two storylines, each with large casts. The chief way this is done is by the use of two artists, Declan Shalvey handles the present-day stuff with Luke Cage and the Dark Avengers, and Kev Walker does the sequences from the past, which feature the Tbolts fighting a load of Doombots. These scenes were mainly mindless action, but I was particularly interested in the strange things going on with Man-Thing. Now that he is sentient, he can’t do as much, because he doesn’t understand, it’s very intriguing. And then at the end, the Thunderbolts are sent to the future to take on… Judge Dredd? Or at least a thinly-veiled Judge Dredd analogue. That should be fun, Dredd is the antithesis of American Super-Heroes, so I want to see him grind them beneath his boots. The Dark Avengers scenes were a lot of fun too, we’re only just getting to know these characters, but there’s interesting stuff there, and I like how they needle Luke Cage about his criminal past. It’s also good to see Dagan Shah and Sharzhad appear again, I really enjoyed the ‘Hulk Of Arabia’ arc and it’s cool that Parker has brought the concept back here, the idea of an Arab Latveria is a very good one, and it makes a lot more sense in the 21st century, America has no real issues with Eastern Europe these days so Latveria is in many ways out-dated.

It's a cool idea, but I don't see Sultan Magus replacing Doom anytime soon even though you're right about Eastern Europe and the Middle East. I do hope that he's used more though, he seems like a fun character.
