Squirrel Power but you will never discover in this volume how Squirrel Girl actually got her powers. This is NUT an origin story. (Oh, I’m sorry, do you hate puns? If so, this comic is NUT for you. No, seriously, they constantly use nut puns). Rather, this volume serves as a test to see if Squirrel Girl can exist among the heavy-hitters found in the Marvel cannon.
Mary Posa is the average millennial, she works at a job that she dislikes and barely makes enough to meet her rent payments. Her attempts to find another job constantly fail, forcing her to remain at the job that she is in: a henchgirl for the villainous Butterfly Gang. Recently, I came across an article that discussed that the average person needs a minimum wage of $20 an hour to live comfortably in New York, so I am sure that many readers, including myself, can understand Mary’s decision to turn to a life of crime.
When someone is possessed the demon will use that person’s likeliness to fool their loved ones. When Megan is possessed the demon attempts to lure her husband, and this, of course, works. Mark rushes over to Megan, believing that she is being harmed by Kyle. However, as soon as he walks over, Megan WHO IS POSSESSED lunges at him. Through the confrontation, Mark plummets through the window.
Hoping to find answers? Well, it certainly won’t happen in this volume. The revelations that Kyle experiences in this volume are not really revelations.
I am a huge fan of Kirkman – not because of The Walking Dead, but because of his incredible work on Invincible. That being said, I am still patiently awaiting a new installment.
While working on my thesis and discussing the lack of Asian American superheroes in mainstream comics, and in turn, the gap that still exists among female and male superheroes, my professor recommended Monstress to me. After taking many courses with her, I knew that she would not steer me wrong so I picked up a copy – yet I did not get a chance to sit down and read it until two nights ago.
Apollo once again lures three women into becoming oracles to tell him about the First Born. We get a repeated history of First Born, but this time we find out what happens after Hera begs the witch to spare him. He essentially becomes an R-rated version of Tarzan as he is taken in by a pack of wolves, lives, hunts, and breeds with them, yet his “contempt ate away his contentment” and he eventually conquers the world. Normally, villains’ efforts continuously remain in vain as they always come so close to taking over the world and one minor slip up ruins it all, but First Born is a different story.
