Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars XXXVI

secret_wars_7

The end is near for Secret Wars.  After last weeks releases there are only 4 issues left in the event (I think), two of which are the conclusion to the main series.  After the break I’ll have a look at Secret Wars #7 and two other series that wrapped up: Thors (I’ll look at Thors #3 and Thors #4) and Squadron Sinister with issue #4.

Be sure to check out our latest Secret Wars Power Rankings, which also features links to the other parts of my read through.

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Eighteen

thors-2

How’s this for timely and relevant…the two books I will look at after the break: Thors #2 and Age of Ultron vs. Marvel Zombies #2, came out TODAY!  That should make up for my last Convergence post being two months overdue.  (Editor’s note: “No.”)  Dang.

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: Parts 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6,7.

And that course is a prerequisite to the other parts of this series: 1, 2, 34, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 1415, 16, 17

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars Part Twelve

thors-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.

And that course is a prerequisite to the other parts of this series: Part One, Part Two, Part Three,Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven, Part Eight, Part Nine,Part Ten, Part Eleven

Behind The Mask: The Avengers Personality Chart

20896893027919e8cd32dacad58557cb

Generally, with larger-than-life superpowers come larger-than-life personalities. How each hero deals with problems is hugely representative of who they are as people. They are each complex individuals with different ways of tackling everything from their world-threatening enemies to their personal demons. Over at Fanpup, they’ve taken a crack at sorting them by Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). If you don’t know your type but want to see which of The Avengers you’re most like, you can take the test here. – So Jenny is an ENFP – which one do you most identify with?
