Good stuff...

Power Man and Iron Fist #1 (of5)

Very interesting opening and effective closing with PAGLIACCI. Yeah, he has a Heath Ledger in that movie vibe to him. Looking forward to seeing PM&IF making him unhappy...

DON OF THE DEAD! Good stuff! He brought a smile in the Taskmaster mini and its great to see him reused here. \:D It seems so sillydumb to read Superman Prime say to Monarch: "I'LL KILL YOU TO DEATH!!!". Yet, when Don says "KEEL THEM DEAD!" was sillyfunny! \:D Plus we get a great serious dramatic moment from him - props for him as an upandcoming supervillain to actually get, for all intents and purposes, a successful killshot off against a superhero! "AW SNAP!"

JOY MEACHUM. Good for her for nailing this job not to mention the new bed buddy she 'stole' away from the Misty Knight! Catfight on the horizon...

JENNIE ROYCE. Bad for her - convicted of murder. She brings some volume 1 nostalgia as does her pending destination: Seagate Prison - the place of birth for Power Man: Luke Cage. Maybe she will bump into Vic's Uncle "Commanche" and friends...

Knew Frank Moore's CRIME-BUSTER, from Nova, but not this smuck. Went to comicvine...

    His costume and gear was stolen by Eugene Mason, a convicted arsonist and murderer who had managed to escape from prison. Inspired by Luke Cage he became a Hero for Hire. A Mystery man calling himself Crime Buster joined The Cavalry, which is the initiative team of Georgia. It remains to be seen if this is Mason or not.

Huh. Think its great continuity but we need more instory confirmation. Plus adding a 'significant' death right off the bat kept me rivetted. Curious what his other 'team ' was and who are the other 2 with Thunderbolt and El Aguila...

Great intro of NOIR...

Then of course there were the main duo. Power Man and Iron Fist have started out with a great dynamic. There banter had some very funny lines. The introduced status quo of each of them is questionable in some minor respects but the good story and art covers up those concerns for now.
  • Why did Danny stay with the white costume?
  • Why is Vic good with non-profit work now?
  • How could Danny move on so fast from his breakup with Misty?
  • How could Power Man survive the point blank shot? Channeling chi?
  • Is Danny using the Book Of Iron Fist like a Punisher War Journal instead of a secret revealing tome like his predecessors?
  • Is Danny going to leave the Avengers for reasons he gave before Heroic Age started or logically take advantage of them if he is a Identicard Carrying Member? Maybe check the FSI files on The Calvary and get some clues on Eugene Mason? Hmmm... same last name as The Agent, Tinkerer, and Blonde Phantom? This was not only a fun read but is kinda fun to speculate after too.

    What do you think will come from this mini?

    Still missing my brother...

  • I miss you, Dan. I miss you, Dad. I miss you, Dan.
