    Dark Origins is a weird ride as everything is silly with such a series title. Stohl brings twisted aspects such as Thanos as a hero and another upside down concepts. Save for a few confusing story moments, it's still a fun ride and enjoyable. Hopefully, Dark Origins ends with a bang and some serious positive moments. And I definitely look forward to getting back to our "regularly scheduled universe." Read Full Review

    Carol is due to pop up in Infinity Countdown in a few weeks lugging the Reality Stone. When it's time to explain the stone's origins, I think she's likely to sigh and rub the bridge of her nose and say something like, "There was a whole … Mirror Universe … Thing." And that is about all you need to know about this story arc; only the most die-hard Carol fans (and those of us who love the way Michele Bandini draws her) will want to slog through the plot-hole-y details.

    Captain Marvel #128 has unfortunately brought Dark Origins to a grinding halt. Its the kind of misfire issue that makes the previous issues feel of lower quality because this is a part of what they were leading to. That being said, the conclusion of #129 still has a chance to redeem this arc, and the ending does promise some interesting developments. However, #128 is left feeling mediocre and aimless, unable to be saved by its solid art or charming characters and dialogue. I cant quite recommend this one. Check back next issue. Read Full Review
