DC this week was killing it! Between Dark Nights Metal and Action Comics finally revealing Oz’s identity it was a huge week. Dark Nights Metal is heating up so fast and it might be one of the coolest events ever! Between all the different DC characters that are popping up, mixed with the Dark Multiverse versions of Batman, it is just a spectacular comic. Scott Synder and Greg Capullo working together again is a dream come true. Synder is an incredible writer and with Metal he is able to convey a serious story with just kickass fun tagged along with it. Capullo is then able to take all the kickass stuff and make it even better with incredible artwork. I cannot wait for the rest of this event. Now in Action Comics, they have been slowly building up this character of Mr. Oz, and they finally revealed his identity, and his name is…SPOILERS…Jor-El. Yes that’s right folks, the Jor-El! How he survived or why he is evil is beyond me, but I’m curious to see how it turns out.
This week for Marvel is an improvement in my opinion. It seems like a lot of the comics are getting back to their roots, which is great, especially Deadpool killing again! But one thing that still upsets me is Secret Empire. This ended last week and oh boy was it a disappointment. This week released Secret Empire: Omega and it did not help to ease this disappointment. Once again Marvel was able to create a cool premise for an event and finish it off with a boring and predictable ending that changes nothing. Everything is reset to the status quo and for the most part it is like the event didn’t even happen.
