NB of the Week

Pestilence, Famine, War, Death
And All They Have Done
Pale in Comparison
To the Destruction of the Run


Ultimate FF # 4
Marvel is ending both versions of the Fantastic Four titles but it's a crying shame because Ult FF has been pretty damn good. When we last say Doom, his skull was being crushed by the Thing's bare hand. We don't get answers to how he's still alive quite yet but we do find that Doom claims is was only his associate that Grimm killed. Before Ben can get more answers, we're lead into a room where a dimensional traveler is waiting to talk to them: Miles Morhames, The Ultimate Spider-Ham! And he's here to save the Universe.

Original Sin #6
Few answers are given as we reach closer to the end of our murder mystery. Midas reveals they need to head back to space, which is where the rest of the Avengers have also figured out they need to be. Old Fury begins to tell his selected team that one of them will need to replace him as the Man On The Wall but they want answers and begin to turn on him just as the other Avengers arrive. But he's not going with a fight, especially after what the Watcher's eyes have shown him. Yes, plural. Looks like Old Fury pulled the trigger on Uatu.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #36
Splinter and Leo continue to disagree as Leo questions his father's choice to strike at Shredder and finish him for good. As they talk, we are introduced to the new Rat King. He is from a distant past where people fought to rule over all. Now the time has come for people like him to do just that once more. Further more, we're shown that his sister is none other that Kitsune. And for a last page jerker, we're shown that Shredder and Krang have just met. The Turtles just can't catch a break.

Savage Wolverine #21
Logan is fighting in France during WWI when he leads a group of men (one of which is a mutant with telepathy) on a raid to take out communications. As he comes across the dirty work, he finds himself face-to-face with a man he's been dreaming about...
And that's about it. Not a bad issue but quite underwhelming. Hopefully it builds into something greater

All-New X-Factor #11
Memento Mori has Gambit and is willing to make a trade for his daughter. He's also willing to kill in order to get what he wants. As fighting breaks out. Mori's (ex?)wife decides it's time to step in. She is able to approach him and she tells him that she is to blame. She dabbled in magic and he got the power she wanted for herself and it's up to her to take it back. In a flash and an explosion ("It feels like the entire world around us is cooking. A massive flash of light and energy unleashed, but in absolute and total silence.") we are left with Factor gathering around a little girl who now has nobody left in her life.
