Uncanny Avengers # 3 - Rick Remender John Cassaday
There is a tonal change in the third chapter of Uncanny Avengers. Remender has found the proper terms and the most precise words to describe the events that are about to take place. This is a dark tale and the writer manages to convey that feeling. 

We all know that Charles Xavier’s had the most powerful mutant mind on Earth. But even taxed with such an enormous temptation, Xavier never used his powers to subjugate his equals or to fulfill his every whim. Had this power been in the hands of a lesser man, he would have been corrupted by it. But now it is in the hands of one of the most perverse and immoral individuals: the Red Skull.

Pursuing his secret agenda, Red Skull attacks New York with waves upon waves of mental power. Reigniting the hatred in people’s heart; increasing their intolerance and fueling their natural aggressiveness. The results are catastrophic. And although the newly formed team of Uncanny Avengers arrives in time, they must first fight against the Red Skull’s S-Men. In the end, however, not even the mighty Thor can resist the telepathic commands of the Red Skull.

Havoc, Captain America & Wolverine

John Cassaday is probably the best illustrator we can see in Marvel right now. His Captain America’s iconic postures are similar to the ones we saw when Cassaday was penciling and inking Marvel Knight’s Captain America, back in 2002. His Wolverine’s brutality and ferocity resemble the version of the character as depicted in Astonishing X-Men, in 2004. There is a particular panel that exudes heroism: the one in which we see Havoc, Captain America and Wolverine together.

And there is also such a sense of power when Thor lands. And such a sense of strength when the Odinson fights against one of the S-Men. Of course, the large panel in which Captain America fights against a mind-controlled SWAT team is priceless. Here Cassaday uses angles and perspectives that most pencilers would refuse to even consider, due to its difficulty.

Hay un cambio tonal en el tercer capítulo de Uncanny Avengers. Remender ha encontrado los términos apropiados y las palabras más precisas para describir los eventos que están a punto de ocurrir. Este es un relato oscuro y el escritor se las arregla para transmitir esa sensación.

Todos sabemos que Charles Xavier tenía la mente mutante más poderosa de la Tierra. Pero incluso agobiado por tan enorme tentación, Xavier nunca usó sus poderes para subyugar a otros o para satisfacer sus caprichos. Si este poder hubiese estado en manos de otro hombre, habría sido corrompido. Pero ahora está en manos de uno los individuos más perversos e inmorales: Red Skull.

Como parte de su agenda secreta, Red Skull ataca New York con una onda tras otra de poder mental. Reavivando el odio en el corazón de la gente; incrementando su intolerancia y encendiendo su agresividad natural. Los resultados son catastróficos. Y aunque el nuevo equipo de Uncanny Avengers llega a tiempo, primero deben luchar contra los Hombres S de Red Skull. Al final, sin embargo, ni siquiera el poderoso Thor puede resistir los comandos telepáticos de Red Skull.

The fight begins / la pelea comienza

John Cassaday es probablemente el mejor ilustrador que podemos ver en Marvel ahora mismo. Las posturas icónicas de Captain America son similares a las que vimos cuando Cassaday estuvo dibujando y entintando "Marvel Knight’s Captain America", en el 2002. La brutalidad y ferocidad de su Wolverine se asemejan a la versión del personaje tal como apareció en Astonishing X-Men, en el 2004. Hay una viñeta en particular que exuda heroísmo: esa en la que vemos a Havoc, Captain America y Wolverine juntos.

Y también hay un gran sentido de poderío cuando Thor aterriza. Y mucha fuerza cuando el hijo de Odín pelea contra uno de los Hombres S. Por supuesto, el panel largo en el que Captain America lucha contra un equipo SWAT controlado mentalmente no tiene precio. Aquí Cassaday usa ángulos y perspectivas que muchos dibujantes se rehusarían incluso a considerar, a causa de su dificultad.

About the Author - Arion

Arion, who is either from Chile or New York (it’s not really clear) writes a blog that the Outhouse steals on a regular basis.  Arion is by far the nicest of all the staff writers and the most well behaved only having been banned from one country.  One thing we really appreciate about Aroin is that he writes his reviews in English and Spanish and we hope someday he’ll translate this blurb for us.  We’re not so good at languages, just look at how well we write in English if you need proof.  You should bookmark Arion’s blog - – and actually look at it.  There will be a quiz at the end of every month.
