DC had a regular week this week. No big reveal or mind blowing teases, but a solid week all together. The top comics were: Detective Comics, JLA, Red Hood and the Outlaws, Titans and Action Comics. The one that stood out to me was Action Comics, and this was due to the fact that they were dealing with the aftermath of Superman Reborn. Superman knows something has changed and goes to the fortress in order to relive his life in a virtual reality to see if there is anything out of place. This makes for an emotional rollercoaster for Kal-El. He has to witness his parents give him up, and see the pain in their eyes as they do. He gets to see the Kents find him and the joy they feel when they do. I like this because we get to relive his past in a whole new light, and I’m just a sucker for nostalgia.
This week was another big week for Marvel’s ResurrXion with the release of X-Men Blue, Weapon X, as well as the kick off for a big arc in Old Man Logan where he is reliving his past. The most interesting of the lot to me was Weapon X. It was interesting because I like to see diverse personalities working together. So seeing all the different Weapon X members is really cool to me. The real treat is going to be seeing Logan and Sabretooth working with each other. We got a small taste of it in issue #1 but I look forward to a lot more of it. For this comic to be really good it will definitely need some explicitly violent scenes! X-Men Blue was surprisingly good for me, I really hate the time displaced X-Men, but this managed to make me hate them slightly less. By introducing Magneto as their leader definitely adds a interesting factor that will keep me reading. As well as introducing the ultimate Wolverine, both of these things will bring me back for issue #2.
