This week saw the release of Ultimate End #5, the second to last Secret Wars book. Now we just have to wait a month for the four month delayed finale to get the anticlimactic details on how Doom was defeated and everything basically returned to normal. Where All-New, All-Different seems to equal “we got Miles now and Wolverine is back (kinda)”.
Click through as I cover the fifth and final issues of the following books: Ultimate End #5, Planet Hulk #5, Secret Wars 2099 #5, Armor Wars #5, Spider-Verse #5, Inhumans: Attilan Rising #5, Inferno #5 and A-Force #5 .
As usual there are spoilers, so take care, especially with Ultimate End which is only days old. The others have been out a while.
Well, it took a lot longer and was a much more enjoyable journey than DC’s Convergence, but I think I’m officially burnt out on Secret Wars. I’m still looking forward to reading the last two issues, but with the new regular Marvel universe soldiering on almost as if nothing happened, and those two issues being months late, they are almost an afterthought at this point.
But, like the final days of Convergence I still have a lot of books to cover off in my attempt to read everything. Well, moreso, to blog about everything, the reading part is done. To keep myself interested now I have to make a game of it. I see how many times I can bounce Secret Wars and then try to break that record. No wait, that is a different game.
Click through as I cover, for no reason whatsoever, the fourth issue of the following books: Planet Hulk, Armor Wars, Inferno, Spider-Verse, A-Force, X-Tinction Agenda and Ultimate End.
Hugh Jackman has let it be known that he will not be portraying Wolverine again after the upcoming Wolverine 3: Old Grey Mare She Ain’t What She Used To Be. Regardless of whether or not this turns out to be the case, Fox will want to have a new Wolverine. There’s already been multiple Hulks, Xaviers, Magentos, Green Goblins, and Spider-Mans (Spider-Men?), and that’s just Marvel, so a new Wolverine is almost a given.
Say, was anyone auditioned yet? Check after the obviously clickbaiting cut.
One of the most momentous moments in Spider-Man’s history was the night the Green Goblin tossed Gwen Stacy off the George Washington Bridge and she died. This moment infused countless Spider-Man stories ever since.
For me, that’s a problem. The issue in question came out in the summer of 1973. I was born in the fall of 1974. Gwen Stacy has been dead longer than I’ve been alive, but then it seems like every Spider-Man writer at a certain point had to to the “poor Gwen Stacy story”. I really hated those.
HULK SMASH TIME LOOP. Hulk smash Marvel Universe. Actually, Hulk smash nothing, since we’re about to reboot the entire Marvel Universe. Yep, you read that correctly… the whole Marvel Universe is about to be rebooted. System failure? Nope, this is not your standard reboot.
