This week…Aquaman’s Trump allegory takes an unexpected and hilarious turn; Batwoman faces off with her own PTSD as well as Professor Pyg and the Champions are recruiting.
Goddammit, Metal, did you have to break your winning streak like that! Why?
And the rest of this week’s list: Batwoman battles Scarecrow, Aquaman rediscovers the hero within I hadn’t noticed he had lost and Champions battle weirdness from outer space.
Only one comic on my list this week: Marvel’s Champions, which does an awesome job of demonstrating why Marvel’s events suck.
I have just one comic this week: Marvel’s Champions, and its one I approached with some trepidation because so far Champions has been everything I love about superheroes, but this one is a tie-in with their big summer event Secret Empire, in which I have little interest.
Honestly, I’m not sure whether this is the best pointless tie-in I’ve ever read, or the most cynical in its determination to tug on the heartstrings. But I do think Marvel could do worse than use this as a masterclass in how to do it right.
