Some of my favorite new Marvel characters from some of my favorite new comic books! Kamala from the Ms. Marvel book, Miles from his new 616 Spider-Man book, Miss America and Black Panther from the new super sciency and super good Ultimates, X-23 from the All-New Wolverine (a title she well deserves), and the incredible kick ass female Thor from the new The Mighty Thor book. I love them aaaaaalll I want to draw them forever
Secret Empire #10, it’s finally ove…Wait a second.
You restored everything….but not all the deaths in Vegas? All those people died and nobody thought of bringing them back? Holy crap, even Dragon Ball has at least that much decency.
And I’m not telling this to shit on Kobik, but like….COULDN’T ANY OF YOU ADULT IDIOTS ASK HER TO DO IT?!
Worse, it appears to be Nick Spencer’s way to weasel out of the promise everything won’t be undone by Cosmic Cube - just keep some of the things that SHOULD be fixed as a top priority unfixed. Doesn’t matter it makes the good guys look like a bunch of selfish assholes.
And you just so forcibly tackled on the connection between Generations and Secret Empire, basically making the former an epilogue for the latter?
In the end, I don’t really hate the big twist that made Captain America divide into regular Cap and Hydra Cap and the former beating the well-deserved shit out of the latter. There were few genuinely good moments like the one with Mjolnir (and finally an explanation how the fuck did Captain Nazi lift it). But you know what? For how good these scenes were, they in no way justify ten issues of this SHIT! I’m serious, as far as dumb events go this one seemed to be trying to be the dumbest it could and it almost succeeded. I think I’m going to make a whole list of stupid things in this event!
And it’s technically not over, there is still that goddam issue omega. Can I get off this ride already?
And by the way, can I point out something? Captain Nazi might still be alive…I mean, he should have broken his neck in that fall, but it’s superhero comics, he’ll be fine. Meaning there is a nazi Steve Rogers duplicate, Maker is running around in multiple bodies, Maestro is dicking around in main universe, SHIELD should still have Warbird and Iron Maniac in custody… how long until we have Avengers fight evil Avengers?
So, Generations seems to be a new event, but it’s unclear to me if it’s going to be across the characters respective series or a bunch of one-shots. But we’re getting Generations in the following pairings:
-Iron Man (Tony Stark and Riri Williams) – written by Brian Michael Bendis
-Spider-Man (Peter Parker and Miles Morales) – Brian Michael Bendis
-Ms. Marvel (Carol Danvers and Kamala Khan) – G. Willow Wilson
-Thor (Odinson and Jane Foster) – Jason Aaron
-Hawkeye (Clint Barton and Kate Bishop) – Kelly Thompson
-Hulk (Bruce Banner and Amadeus Cho) – Greg Pak
-Jean Grey (young and older) – Dennis Hopeless
-Wolverine (Logan and X23) – Tom Taylor
-Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell and Carol Danvers) – Margie Stohl
-Captain America (Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson) – Nick Spencer
Whenever we’re getting actual returns of those characters for one story (so time-travel) or for longer, this has some potential.

The first cover would make a cool poster. I see Sam, Riri, Gwen, Miles, Loki, Kamala, Laura, Viv and Amadeus.
The second cover, the one with Amadeus… I have no words. Okay, I have words, many words. But they’re not okay to print.
