(New in Marvel Unlimited 1/01/18)
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.
Mercenaries hired by Scarlet Spider (Ben Reilly) are trying to kill Scarlet Spider (Kaine). That has to be one confusing contract.
I have a feeling they’ll find out real soon if they got him.
They just jinxed themselves by saying that.
Meanwhile, the young time displaced version of Jean Grey is on a mission to talk to all the individuals who have hosted the Phoenix Force. The next person on her list is Namor.
She bumps into a bit of trouble along the way.
Namor is not impressed by her battle strategy.
Jean finds herself crushing on Namor a bit as she observes him fighting.
I love Namor’s sarcastic attitude.
Jean has to pull Namor to safety after a scratch from the big beastie begins to paralyze his lower body. I but that was humbling. Then again, knowing Namor, it would not have changed him a bit.
Elsewhere, Miles Morales’s team members give him a bit of grief over his cell phone.
He’s never going to hear the end of that one.
In a much darker story, Deadpool does his best to comfort a kid named Hudson after he witnesses Taskmaster decapitate his mother and his dad is killed by the Punisher…and Deadpool…right in front of him.
Yeah, I was thinking that sure sounds like a super villain origin story.
So comforting. Good job there Deadpool.
Moon Girl is reflecting on Devil Dinosaur’s attributes.
Now I really want to know what Devil Dinosaur looks like with feathers!
Whoa! It’s like they read my mind! At the very end of the comic we get a glimpse of a parallel universe version of Moon Girl and a feathered Devil Dinosaur. I think Devil still looks intimidating with the feathers.
While we’re on the topic of feathers, Howard the Duck has been caught up in a bit of magic mayhem inside a book with the Sorcerers Supreme.
I never liked Sesame Street.
No one wants to be killed by a vowel. Then again, I really don’t like the sound of being crushed by a consonant either.
“Shut up forever.” Howard is so done with this magical adventure. But did you see what Wiccan from the future said? Howard becomes an Avenger! I’d love to read about that, and it makes me wonder who else made the team…and how desperate are they for recruits?
