But after giving it some thought and the obvious connection Black Widow and Hawkeye had throughout the movie I bet they could hold their own successful movie. I think the movie version was/is a lot more interesting than the comic book version. I could see it falling into that espionage/action genre. Perhaps it could even be weaved into the current Marvel movie universe but on a smaller scale.
I still think they would have made an interesting team. Certainly pre-New 52 they were aware of each other. I’m sort of envisioning a Spider Woman/Ms. Marvel sorta thing here.
It’s never too late to be friends right? Even if they didn’t have much interaction with each other.
So I gave this book a shot knowing that Huntress was no longer Helena Bertinelli. Still unsure if that was a wise move by DC. But who says things are permanent in the comic book business anyway right?
I thought it was a really solid start actually for a 1st issue. We get some back story that sets up their current adventure in the new DCU. I guess it’s no secret that they got taken out of their original universe and will be working to find their way back home to Earth-2. I’m also a little skeptical about this whole premise of this story. And why do away with the Helena Bertinelli character like that?
I very much liked the pre-New 52 versions of both Huntress and PG. I don’t see why a team up book featuring those two couldn’t have worked. But overall it was a fun start and I’ll check out more issues. This book seems like it could be very promising.
The art was fantastic. Not much too complain about at all, save for Power Girl’s costume and hair. Her new costume is ugly honestly and the hair just looks weird to me. Maybe I don’t understand women’s hairstyle but it looks..off.. why is it flipping back like that?
Well I had to institute a tumblr blackout starting Friday night after too much spoilerish material was being posted on the Avengers. NO SPOILERS here but I will say I think the movie is perfect. Maybe it won’t get any Oscars, Golden Globes, or SAG awards but I think within the comic community it can contend for picture of the year. I do think it is the best superhero movie ever…so far anyway. It’ll be interesting to see how Batman and Spider-Man do, although both of those look equally awesome.
As far as Agent Coulson I think he’s such a fan favorite because in a lot of ways he’s just like us. He’s a comic fanboy. He believes in superheros. He’s one of us you know? You’d expect him to have a huge collection, attending cons, and hanging out in shops every Wednesday.
I also liked how Nick Fury closely reflected his comic book persona. He wasn’t a totally honest leader. This Nick had secrets and made tough decisions despite them maybe upsetting a few people. Like Nick in the comics he did what was necessary to get the job done even if it meant deception or dishonesty. Sure he’s a straight shooter, but he also seems like he knows a lot more than what he lets on to.
Also one of my favorite parts of the movie was obviously Hulk smashing things. A little mindless rage and destruction can be awesome. I also loved how they handled Hawkeye and his entire character. The trick arrows and quiver tech was really dope.
In sports news the Nats took the series from Philadelphia. I would have liked to see them win all 3 games, but 2 out of 3 ain’t bad. If you’re a baseball fan you should be checking out the games. Bryce Harper is going to be a special player.
-The Avengers blew my mind. I’m speechless with how awesome it was. I am without speech.
-The Nationals gave the Phillies a major head whuppin’.
-The Caps evened the series with rangers.
-It was free comic book day.
My plan is to hit up Free Comic Book Day and then see The Avengers tomorrow. It is gonna be a good day. I’ve been making it a point to avoid all Avengers related news because I’ve seen so many scenes as it is. The same goes for Spider-Man and Batman too.
Anyway I can’t wait to see the movie and any easter eggs that may be in the movie.
