Ranking the All New All Different Marvel: 40 – 31

All New Inhumans

Charles Soule & James Asmus
I’m definitely disappointed that the Inhumans are basically the new X-Men. At least the Inhumans have pretty much the same back story now, which is still compelling, but I don’t know how much I’ll attach to the characters. Crystal seems to be heading in a different direction than she’s been before, and I like Gorgon’s complicated existence, but I hope the don’t run the wheelchair thing into the ground. Hopefully that Xavier comment punctuates it and he can have stories where people aren’t constantly pointing out that he’s semi-paralyzed. It’s a pretty-looking book; the elemental stuff in the riot scene is particularly cool. I will read more to see if the new direction these characters are going is as endearing as the X-books. – RF

I haven’t read much Deadpool; he always seemed very gimmicky, but I really enjoyed this book. It does seem weird that in order for current super heroes to be successful, they have to embrace capitalism and some form of bureaucracy, making them somewhat less super. But the concept of using Deadpool – a powered, ultraviolent gunman – to finance super-heroic operations is tasty irony. I’m a sucker for a good mystery plot, so I’ll definitely finish this first arc. – RF

All New All Different Marvel – Week 12

Longtime Marvel fans may have known Hellcat, but how many really knew Patsy Walker, the girl behind the claws? Thanks to Netflix’s Jessica Jones, we all got a reminder. Only the O.G. Human Torch, Namor (R.I.P.), and Captain America have had longer, (relatively) uninterrupted comic book lives in the Marvel U.

yesh, you’re THAT Patsy Walker!

This week’s only ANAD premiere is as much Patsy Walker as it is Hellcat, and it’s another welcome addition to the ever-expanding stable of female superhero books by women creators. It also brings the running total of new titles in Marvel’s relaunch up to an even 50.
