I’ve never cared much about the Inhumans. And I’m willing to bet if Marvel had the movie and tv rights to the X-Men, we wouldn’t be seeing the massive Inhumans push from them that we are seeing today. High profile comic launches, essentially the entire season two and looks like season three storylines of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a major motion picture in 2019 (which seems way too far off and they should be capatilizing on what they are setting up with AoS now, but anyway…), everything is coming up Inhumans.
After the cut I’ll look at the first four issues of Inhumans series from this beast of an event called Secret Wars. It’s another of those series I had little interest in, but turned out to be quite good. (Currently holding the number ten spot on our Secret Wars Power Rankings.)
I’m trying to read all the Secret Wars issues in the order they come out, but unlike what I’ve done with Convergence, I haven’t pigeon-holed myself. Hence the title of these posts is not “Week Two, Part Two” or something similar. Sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to jump ahead. Out of pure curiosity, or to avoid spoilers. It’s for that reason that this post sees a bit of a mish-mash between some of the first releases and some of the more recent.
Spoilers after the break for Planet Hulk #1, Loki: Agent of Asgard #14, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #1 and Secret Wars: Battleworld #2.
Marvel confirmed a few more zones on Battleworld this week. Some have been rumored for a while and already have tie-in books announced (like Planet Hulk above), while there were also a few surprises. What any of this all really means, we’re not really sure yet. Let’s have a look at the updates…
Greenland – PLANET HULK
Savage alien planet. Oppressed barbarian tribes. Corrupt emperor. Deadly woman warrior. Gladiators and slaves. Battle axes and hand blasters. Monsters and heroes… and the Incredible Hulk!
