Superhero marriages come and go, and this summer’s bash will be a royal event: Doctor Doom chose a bride. And it’s not a scarlet witch or storm, or any other woman he’s tried to force him to recognize the dignity of fate for years.
No, it’s Victorias, a Latveria homegrown (and created by Doctor Doom) superhero. He has just hit Human Torch, but accepts his fateful proposal because of his loyalty and affection. It couldn’t be said to Torch that she was masquerading as his ex-wife of Skrull, so after a big quarrel with an alien soulmate, he thought of something other than how he tricked the alien soulmate. It’s a good thing because I gave it.
Also, was his ex-wife of Skrull mind-controlled to appear by Sing’s wife? Oh, good old superhero drama.
What else is happening on our favorite manga page? I will tell you. Welcome to Funnies on Monday. This is Polygon’s weekly book list that comic editors enjoyed last week. This is part of the Superhero Life Society page, reading recommendations, and “Look at this cool art.” There may be spoilers. There may not be enough context. But there are great cartoons. (And if you missed the last edition, read this.)
Fantastic Four # 32
In addition to all the dramas, Doom wants Reed Richards to be Doom’s best man, and I’m sure humiliating him isn’t part of some plans. ..
Guardians of the Galaxy # 14
The reason Doom has to get married in the first place has nothing to do with actually falling in love. He threatens some sort of universe … has detected a threat, and believes that in the classic Doom way, only he has the power to stop it. This is all a way for writer Al Ewing to get Doom’s big ego on the Guardians of the Galaxy team. Guardian of the galaxy # 14, Guardians temporarily imprison Rocket Raccoon’s body by forcing Doctor Doom to agree to their terms.
Oh, good old superhero drama.
Joker # 3
And three problems Joker Perhaps James Gordon’s hunting down of the Joker on the Ram has changed to a story of James Gordon and his fellow jokers from the many angry Supervillains.
Aside from some art, I really love this book. The scenes on these panels are really important.
Sprites and gardeners
A simple graphic novel by Rii Abrego and Joe Whitt. Sprites and gardeners Fascinated me.It has some big ones Steven universe “There is no romance plot, but it’s easy to queer.” Energy style.
DC Heroes Festival # 1
While DC’s Asian superhero (and creator) celebration anthology has a lot of great stories, the headliner was the first appearance of the new superhero Monkey Prince, the son of the legendary Monkey King. He is the old “Oh no! My parents are supervillains!” The origin of teenage superheroes.
His parents Henchman.. pleasant!
Time before time # 1
I can’t remember the last time I saw the basic premise of comics laid out more easily than the first page and with such an impact. Before time # 1. Declan Charvey, Rory McConville, and Joe Palmer had to do so, as it was clear that they had big plans for the series beyond “Witness Protection Program and Time Travel.”
Justice League: Last Ride # 1
Chips Darsky Justice League The miniseries spun up this week, but the real star was Miguel Mendonsa’s splash panel. Breathtaking.
