NB of the Week


Uncanny Avengers #4
Written by Rick Remender
Drawn by John Cassaday
The very late Uncanny Avengers came out again today and while it's been good and the art's been amazing, there was one reason why I loved it. Even though people may disagree.
Essentially what's happened so far is that old, Nazi Red Skull is now in out time, has taken the brain of dead Charles Xavier and is now trying to eradicate all mutants. The Uncanny Avengers stop him for now and he gets away but after that is when things get tricky. We cut to three months in the future as Havok, Scarlet Witch and Sunfire are on the run from something(s?). They travel into the sewers to find a dead Immortus body (yes, the time-traveling villain), they talk about the Apocalypse Twins locking the "era as prime" and the the Red Skull incident is "The moment the seven became one", followed by this last page...

...What the hell?! A red Skull/Onslaught/Xavier hybrid? what the hell is going on?! This last page alone makes me want to keep reading this, let alone the Apocalypse Twins that are coming. Remender is doing it again and I couldn't be happier.
