Heroes Reborn #7

Post by Blackcyclops » 17 Jun 2021, 02:35

My biggest complaint has been that I find this world so fascinating and so I’m actually sad to see it go. I’ve found a Marvel critique of DC’s heroes in the modern era to be so interesting and really hve so many things I would love to see more of…the Dark Squadron alone would be worth a mini-series.

I’m also sad I didn’t get more of the SS together. While I’ve either loved or been ambivalent toward the individual issues, this one with them working together was incredibly strong and felt honestly like a Morrison Era JLA issue in all the best ways.

It's been a fun ride. I enjoy the unexpected changes like Stan's past romance with Mary Jane. They've re-established that Hyperion has an Achilles heel when it comes to magic. That technically makes Zarda the biggest threat on the team (outside of Nighthawk's resourcefulness, maybe). I wonder if Nick Fury jr/Marcus Johnson exists in this reality (not that I want to see him). It's just that we were introduced to Coulson through him. Does he even know that Cheese is alive? I wish the series were longer or had a spinoff where they'd show more of the auxiliary characters like Arcanna, Blue Eagle, and Skymaster. I want to know their recruitment stories. This was a decent issue. Loved the art.

Dark Squadron

Sentry to counter Hyperion
Valkyrie (Jane Foster?) to counter Zarda
Ghost Runner to counter Blur
Moon Knight (sweet redesign) to counter Nighthawk
and Nova (no idea what incarnation this would be) to counter Spectrum

Decent lineup. I wonder if they were fellow inmates at ravencroft.

I just assumed this Hyperion had a weakness to magic because this whole run is super-DC centric.

Even the Dark Squadron are basically giving Legion of Doom vibes…I mean the way they’ve meshed Marvel and DC without literal mashups is dope.

This event has been just meh to me but it has gotten stronger now that the individual issues are done and the main story is going forward. And while many fans seem to curse tie-ins I agree it actually could have used more to flesh out some of these ideas that there is no room for in the main story.

I’m glad that it wasn’t an intrusive story but basically extra issues of Avengers with different writers given the chance to tell some truly twisted stories. My only complaint has been that I just kinda wish it was longer or structured so that we got those one-shots about the SS but also more on the world itself. It’s probably, outside of AoA, the most interesting world set up by a what if. It feels like there is a whole world out there ai want to see
