An excellent ending to the first act. If only Prometheus could have been a tenth as good as this series.

I hate how Hickman just randomly completely changes the his story of a character and also does it in the most nonsensical way imaginable. So the timeline restarts completely every time Moira dies? Is she suddenly a god? She’s also a mutant now out of nowhere. This has been a bullshit storyline so far. Maybe he can make it make sense at some point but it’s definitely not there right now.

6.0

I can't give it anymore than a 6.0, and most of that is based on potential and faith in Lemire.

This issue didn't advance the story beyond the cover and the solicits, and the back story was vague and generic.

I'll be back for issue #2 though.

I was prepared to hate this, or at the very least be seriously disappointed. I like Venom, but Carnage has been played out for a good twenty years now. He's one of those characters Marvel should have permanently killed off. He was a one-note "extreme!" psycho back in the 90s, and has only gotten more overpowered and ridiculous since then.

Moira sums up my final feelings on the issue: "It seems like the type of thing I SHOULD enjoy, and yet... I look around at all these [panels] and know it's just a show for those who need one. A distraction from what's really going on, if you will." What's really going on is they're bringing back Earth-1610 and this is the long setup.

That's a cool theory! See that's why I find it interesting, anything can happen in my eyes. But if you r set that that's what's happening then I guess you'd think mystery solved. For me, I like just savoring everything and waiting for next issues

READ RUMBLE - Jul 3, 2019

Calling someone an ‘asshat’ because they have a different opinion than you is wrong. Pseudnik has a right to their opinion and they didn’t personally attack someone. Frankly, Bendis’ Lois and Clark relationship to me seems odd and out of character, so I stopped reading supe and action, but will give this a try due to Rucka. I think most people know Rucka is a pretty political guy and it will show in his stories, so I’m assuming this is what they meant by ‘political posturing’
