(New in Marvel Unlimited 12/4/17)
Marvel Comic Snippets: A weekly series where I highlight the interesting and amusing bits from new comics released into the Marvel Unlimited App. Instead of spending hours of reading, you only need ten minutes.
So what’s new with Hawkeye?
Hmm..people admitting that they hate Hawkeye. Well, I guess nothing is new for Hawkeye this week. I do like how Hawkeye just accepts Nick Fury’s scorn with a grin though.
Cable has a brand new series, and he has traveled back in time to the Old West.
It does not seem like the locals were impressed with his arrival. But wait, they were expecting him?
Where did they get the futuristic guns? We do not find out in this issue.
Cable and big gun jokes never get old. Yes, he has seen bigger. Much, much bigger.
Sam Wilson has been having a tough time dealing with public opinion with his role as Captain America. So what does Sam do to relax?
He goes camping!
He also spends time with Redwing and other birds. Now that sounds relaxing.
Sam can’t run away from the world’s problems forever though. He makes a plan to help Inhumans and other super powered folks leave the newly Hydra controlled United States. However, Sam is going to need help.
Sam has been in some tough spots before, but what could he possibly fear more than Red Skull, Baron Zemo, and the Masters of Evil?
Turns out his greatest fear is a ticked off Misty Knight!
I can not blame Sam for being afraid of her. Just look at that face! And yes Sam, she is still a bit mad.
Misty is still furious, but what about Sam’s other team member, Dennis Dunphy, also known as Demolition Man?
Still fear Misty the most, Sam?
Meanwhile, Taskmaster and the Superior Octopus (Otto Octavius) are raiding a temple in Atlantis while chatting about the friendship of Hydra Captain America and Baron Zemo. Taskmaster is here to give us all a valuable lesson on friendship.
The moral of this story is make some friends if you do not want your tv shows purged from the dvr. Thanks Taskmaster!
When he is not busy deleting Doc Ock’s documentaries, Taskmaster has been facing off against the Punisher!
This should be an interesting fight.
Taskmaster uses all the tools available to him to his advantage, including being underestimated by his opponents.
Taskmaster does a pretty good job of countering the Punisher’s every move.
This is the first time I remember seeing Taskmaster use his cape to his advantage in a fight.
Frank looks like he is finished. But of course, Taskmaster cannot be allowed to win this fight, or there is a very good chance he would just finish Frank off for good by killing him.
Deadpool to the rescue.
Taskmaster has not really ever fared too well against his sometimes friend, sometimes enemy Deadpool.
Taskmaster cannot beat both the team-up of Punisher and Deadpool, and he is knocked off the boat where the battle took place.
Wow! Two Taskmaster appearances this week. Fun stuff.
