This book seemed bizarre to me. All of these alternate universe characters feel like red-shirts in Star Trek; I don’t care about them. This book really just reeks of that crossover-tie-in funk that bogs down so much of what Marvel publishes. There isn’t really anything substantial in the book even worth writing about – a really lousy comic. I will in no way shape or form be reading any more of this book. – IP

I did not like this at all. I don’t want to play your damn game and I don’t want to read your confusing tie-in. – BC

I’m so confused. I thought even with multiverses collapsing, the Marvel Movie U and the ANAD Marvel were separate things. Is that Robert Downey Iron Man? I don’t see this book capturing a wide audience. I don’t think the TV show’s audience is really hankering for more B-listers and primetime tropes in comic form. This is some classically lame, cross-promotional baby shit. Ugly drawings. Boo boo, Peralta. – RF

All New All Different Marvel – Week 5

This is arguably the most exciting week yet in Marvel’s All-New, All-Different era. Four continuing titles serve to illuminate more of the post-Secret Wars world. Seven premieres run the gamut from some of the worst books Marvel has produced in years (willing to bet Drax gets cancelled before we’re even able to round-table our rankings) and some of the most refreshing and entertaining takes on both classic and modern superheroes (Hercules and Vision). We also get a funnybook that is genuinely funny (Howard the Duck) and the first real look at how The X-Men figure into Marvel’s new world order.

This brings the running total of new titles in Marvel’s relaunch up to 23, of a rumored 60+ series.
