Every superhero in NYC wants him, too. Captain Marvel is in town to get her dead boyfriend's armor back, while no one else is willing to forgive him for joining up with Hydra. (I mean, they gave him the okay to murder criminals and have it be state sanctioned; his whole schtick is murdering criminals. He also feels bad about it, and while I feel gross about this, he's not the turning point that caused Marvel to gaslight us about Hydra's original connections to the nazis, so I'm more okay with his part in The Worst Event Ever than with, say, Captain nazi.)
Anyway, yeah, him being tracked by a bunch of superheroes and trying to evade them is a bunch of fun right now.
FML, warrior-priests. And they're gonna end up coming back, I just know it. It didn't get weird enough for me to dislike this or give up on this series, but ugh.
Shit is gonna get weirder by the time we're done, too, I just know it...
Marvel and christian mythology as part of it's narratives/superhero elements always, always gets weirder.
Look, I hate when Marvel introduces religion too heavily into its comics. They can explore bigotry against a religion, have religious characters, but when they start getting into heaven/hell and incorporate it into their storylines? It gets weird. Not in a 'way to go, that's freaky and mind-blowing way.'
In a 'welp, that was awkward, Marvel' way. Not enough to get me as mad as the gas lighting about Hydra, but...
Oh, right, so Matt's priest gets weird. See, him being Catholic and going to a priest causes narrative tension because he was raised Catholic and is a superhero and that shit gets dirty real quick.
Having Matt's priest do exorcisms gets weird. I know because I've read the next issue. Which makes me wonder: why, Marvel, why?
Blindspot has to deal with his own demons, even as Matt is thrust into a role of power just in time to stem some of the damage from the Hand.
Once again, a taut entry into this series: it will take a long time for the fallout to end, and that's after the Hand finishes their work in NYC.
Eager to see where this goes, past issue 604.
