So, the thing is that people keep trying to redo the Phoenix story, and it's always less impressive to me than the original. I also don't like Jean Grey much, but I wanted to see if this was any good, and I got it free via the Marvel Insider program.
I'm holding off on more, because I'm not sure I'll like any of the other comics, but I'm also considering the Hulk one. I will not be finishing up with this series, however.
I'm loving this series, I'm loving what Marvel is doing with Vision and Viv, and Vivian, but... ugh... they're killing all the things I love. Yeah, that's right, I saw the IDBM for the Avengers movie after Infinity War.
Yeah, I see that Inhumans, and Vision are being phased out of Fresh Start. I see it all, Marvel.
This is heartbreaking, and heartwarming, and I forget what else happened: I was all about Vision, Viv, and Vivian bonding as a family.
This is... amazing. Like you'd think, oh, Lockjaw, lol, he's getting his whole series? But you'd be wrong. Lockjaw is amazing.
And it's not just that he's adorable.
He teleports. He TELEPORTS, YES!
And while this is all amazing, there's more. Lockjaw is looking for his siblings, and he ends up taking D-Man along in the most hilarious way possible.
D-Man happens to have just split from his boyfriend, no one remembers him, and he's feeling down in general.
Y'know, until he touches Lockjaw when he's teleporting, gets taken along for the ride - and meets Ka-Zar, a half naked, ripped dude who pals around with his sabertooth tiger. And D-Man's reaction is pretty much, 'thank you, best day ever!' We spend a lot of time with D-Man, building up how sucky his life is, only to leave him here.
This is a limited series, but amazing.
Also, I was sure the fact that the writer's last name is 'Kibblesmith' was a joke, but apparently not. That makes this better.
