Recent Comics I Have Read

Teen Titans #32: As if I didn’t get enough “Superboy Gone Wild” in Infinite Crisis #4! Now I get to read the exact same story, only from a different camera angle. And, surprisingly, it’s just as ludicrous. Thank Kirby the Infinitely Pointless Crisis is over!

Ultimates 2 #10: “Axis of Evil.” An evil liberal army led by Russia, Syria, North Korea and Red China invades America, with Ultimate versions of Abomination, Perun (how many people remember the regular version?), and Crimson Dynamo. Things are obviously being set up for a major battle between the Ultimates and the Liberators nexy issue, so this is primarily filler. My only problem with the whole concept is: if superhumans are THIS easy and quick to make (both SHIELD and the Evil Liberal Army have bazillions of them) why isn’t the planet literally crawling with them by now? Why don’t we have (as in Ultimate Fantastic Four #27) the “Planet of the Capes”?

Young Avengers #9: The first time I saw this book, I passed on it. Seemed too silly, like a very obvious Marvel attempt to create the Teen Titans. However, I may have been too hasty in my judgment. The concept (teen sidekicks who were never really sidekicks) is presented well and the writing and art are good. The angst and emo aren’t allowed to get out of control. In this issue, the team has been disbanded on orders of Captain America, so they never even appear in uniform. It’s still a good story as they deal with the consequences of their breakup and fight the always ridiculous Super-Skrull.
