Quake 001 - S.H.I.E.L.D. 50th Anniversary (2015)
This was out last week but it felt... challenging to comment on so just going to reply to this reviewer's decent take. Points he missed:
â€¢ Daisy's 2 superiors at SHIELD were kinda interesting but unfortunately unnamed.
â€¢ Starks' dissention made the team feel more dictatorship than democracy.
â€¢ Storm was a cipher here. [BTW, how many Avengers missions was she actually seen on - more than a handful?]
â€¢ It was actually cool seeing the team jump out of a flying transport for a change.
â€¢ Make Mine Mrs. McKnight-isms!
â€¢ Generic AIM is typically so boring but the choreography of wiping the floor of them was good.
â€¢ So, Rulk gut smashes an AIM foe in half!!!!!! Y'don't see that everyday. This KILL probably deserves a lot of discussion but will likely be a casual 'kewl' scene that will be forgotten.
â€¢ Daisy's mom or not Daisy's mom in the 616? For anyone who watches the TVShow this Jiaying scene has A LOT more impact.
â€¢ Quake disobeys orders and lies on her (first?) mission. Cap let's it slide but then again Cap was such a terrible presented leader back when he was Top Cop of the World. [BTW, how many Avengers missions was she actually seen on - more than a handful?]
â€¢ It was reasonable that Cap had behind the scenes intel source on the Inhumans sitch.
If this book is aimed to cash in on the TVShow then why not blurb the name "Skye" or "Daisy" somehow on the bland poser cover, huh?
A very nice spin on debatably forced and off characterization of who Quake was back then - just to give her a more submissive presence for the context here when, apparently, there was a "2Â¾ hours" time period where Rulk, Protector and Storm were simultaneous fulltime members to exploit. Circa Avengers #20 y'say, eh? Huh.
All for naught given she went on to be useless/wasted as part of Bucky's life/book. Also, this is all about continuity but it offers no confirmation it's canon pre-SW, post-SW or both - huh.
Wow, that's a much more flattering way than, to say, the art and colours were "okay". Huh, maybe using it as source for a banner submission offer amount of props. The factial expressions, powers in action showing and arrows in Spidey's face were nicely detailed.
Better than Agent Carter's but not better than Mockingbird's.
