For a character that’s been dead since 1973 and outside of some clone shenanigans has never been resurrected, Gwen Stacy sure is popular these days. Probably much to known hater Tom Kelly’s chagrin, Gwen just launched a second title that she is headlining. After the break, a brief history of Gwen and a look (with possible spoilers) at Unbelievable Gwenpool #1.
Oh those pesky Thors. Tasked with being the “police” of Battleworld, they are one of the truly cool new concepts introduced with Secret Wars. And while there have been lots of Thor’s across Marvel’s multiverse and history to fill up a corps as is, we also get some cool new Thor’s based on the likes of Iron Man and Groot for example. They’ve shown up in pretty much every book so far in one way or another, but they also get a series of their own.
In this episode of “Jimmy’s Way Behind On Deadlines”, I’ll look at that Thor-centric book with Thors #1. I’ll also look at Armor Wars #2 (hey, there’s a James Rhodes Thor on the cover!), Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars #2 and Squadron Sinister #1. As usual, spoilers abound.
Also, if you are like me and haven’t read all of Johnathon Hickman’s Avengers run leading up to Secret Wars, be sure to take Tom’s Road To Secret Wars course at gabbinggeekuniversity.com. The reading materials are online here: Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six and Part Seven.
