Secret Warriors #1

February 5, 2009

I’m not sure the big reveal is that big of deal.  Sure, it’s sort of a surprise – but how much value does that have in a comic these days?

Unless it’s been planned and pre-planned as well as Bendis’ Secret Invasion (for which you really can find hints in comics from 4-5 years ago) it’s just going to be another giant ret-con (like Phoenix NOT being Jean Grey) in the most functional sense of the word.  It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense either, given how laughable the the relevant organization has been for a while now.

Or has it? dun dun DUN!

As for the issue itself, I was a little put off by the writing style.  Also..wtf is up with Aries’ & his kid?  He put all that effort into getting a human job so he could have a life with his son, and now he’s not getting all frothy mad that his son is missing?
