Great issue, good ending to the mini series. Really felt like this was the proper ending to Peter David’s Captain marvel from 20 years ago that never had a proper ending.

Let’s hope it sold well enough to keep Genis around, at least on a team book or regular supporting character. I’ll buy whatever he shows up in next

Genis-Vell: Captain Marvel #5

•  Genis-Vell and Rick Jones have been through a lot together - can they survive a final face-to-face with Death?
•  You won't expect how this one ends!

Marginalhero reviewed A.X.E.: Judgment Day #6 Oct 26, 2022

The final issue, and whole event really, was just okay throughout. Rather tedious and boring at times. The celestials constant inner monologue was hard to read at times… in that it felt like boring filler dialogue not unlike old 90’s narration boxes that could be skipped over without missing anything.

I do like the idea of resolving a big conflict without resorting to who can hit h more

A.X.E.: Judgment Day #6

The apocalyptic finale of the event of the year. It's not that nothing will be the same again - it's that unless heroes can find a new way to be heroes, everything will be nothing forever.

Marginalhero reviewed Spider-Man #1 Oct 6, 2022

It is nice to enjoy Spider-Man again. I stopped reading Wells run because, well I hated the way he writes Peter Parker, but this issue was great!

I loved the first spider verse and also spidergeddon so I’m happy to get more multiverse madness here!

I only didn’t give it a ten because the chosen one nonsense needs to stop. I’m not sure if that has ever made a story bet more

"The End of the Spider-Verse" is here! Morlun is back and he is not alone. Allied with one of the most powerful beings known to the Spider-Verse, the scariest Spider-Villain of all time is making his biggest play and no Spider is safe. Especially not the Chosen Spider himself, Peter Parker. With Peter working for Norman Osborn and using a glider......

This series continues to be one I look forward to. Peter David pays good attention to past continuity and characterization. Something I always appreciate in comics.

The only criticism I have if a somewhat jarring transition in the last few pages where I had to check if I missed a page by accident. Moon dragon comes out of no where. I expect her to show up, it wasn’t her presence that more

Marginalhero reviewed Captain Marvel #40 Aug 18, 2022

Captain Marvel has somehow found its way into being my favourite ongoing title now. This was another great issue. The art is good, the story pacing with Carol is good, I’m genuinely interested and wanting to see what’s next. Makes for a good comic read. My only complaint was that this issue had no binary. I’ve enjoyed that part of the story but this issue doesn’t touch on it. Minor complai more

Captain Marvel #40

Captain Marvel's magical tribunal doubles down as Carol struggles to break free of her prison using only what she came with - namely, herself. But if Earth's Mightiest Hero can't solve this puzzle, she'll be Captain Marvel no more, which was maybe the master plan all along?

BillyBat reviewed Avengers #59 Aug 10, 2022

As usual, a bad "what if" with shallow, unambitious characters, and an arc that takes far too long to get to the point (if there is one). It's time Jason Aaron decided to conclude this arc, he's losing our interest fast.

Avengers #59

By: Jason Aaron, Garron
Released: Aug 10, 2022

The Avengers' journey through time brings them to the Old West, where they cross paths with a couple of History's Mightiest Heroes, whose six-guns are loaded with the greatest powers of the heavens. But is that enough to force a showdown with the forces of Mephisto? Or will the Avengers be lost ...

I can’t be bothered to write a review on this today. I’ll just say you are correct, Aaron has lost my interest and I’m only still reading this because of my idiot dedication to the avengers.

Marginalhero reviewed Amazing Spider-Man #2 May 25, 2022

This comic sucks!

I’ll give it the Linkara treatment and explain why.

I’ve read a lot of Spider-Man comics and never had Peter Parker been such an unlikable idiot as he has been since Wells took over. Not only is this back to broke Peter, a status quo that really makes him seem like an idiot, but it’s also unfriendly jerk Peter to everyone. I hated issue 1 but thought more

If this is your thing, fine, you are welcome to like it. I didn’t like it. I don’t like Peter being written so I likeable. I’ve read Spider-Man for years, and this isn’t the first time a writer tried this. I recall during the clone saga, Peter smacked MJ, and that was stupid writing then. That doesn’t happen here, or anything like it, just thinking of an example of Peter being written un more

Peter's on the outs with the FF. He's on the outs with the Avengers. He's on the outs with Aunt May! No one wants to see Spider-Man - except for Doctor Octopus. Ock's on Spider-Man's tail and the Master Planner has something truly terrible planned for when he gets his tentacles on Spidey. All that, and what does Tombstone have planned? Just in time...

This was okay. It’s to see the heroes get a bit of a win after such dark circumstances but it seemed so easy. It seems like at anytime prior, infinity thing could have just walked in there and destroyed the bad guys. Or even wonder man. There was even a mention by wonder man about why they didn’t do it earlier… that’s a good question that goes unanswered. The remaining heroes had so much p more

I use to really enjoy Sara pichelli’s art but lately it’s been going down in quality. I didn’t even realize it was pichelli at first. While not the completely bad, I did find myself thinking the art was bothersome at times throughout the issue. Otherwise I thought it was a great issue!

I’m just taking a point off because goblin queen is kinda boring. A fill in the blank villain. What I really like is how this issue makes me hate it for what it’s doing to Ben. Like in a good way. I have it a nine. I am afraid the overall story May do long standing damage to a character I love but it has engaged me in a such a good way that I can’t possibly score it low!

This is a bit of a hard one to rate… I appreciate what Taylor is trying to do regarding a message of climate change. It still shocks me to think there are climate change deniers but that’s the screwy thing about the world. My issue is that an issue like this in the DC universe doesn’t seem to equate the real world issues. Real world requires systemic change, not feel good paper straws and sh more

This is the lowest point of GL writing that there has ever been.
I started reading GL around when Blackest night came out and loved Johns run. I’ve since read everything going back to Crisis in the 80’s and aside from a few bits here and there, green lantern has been awesome! This run though… is trash. It’s sad to see. I’ve stuck around out of loyalty to the title but I’m done no more
