    Domino: Hotshots (2019) 001 (of 5)

    What a let down. Or my hopes & expectations were too high. The script here was nowhere near as fun as the previous Domino series.

    BLACK WIDOW JOINS? The forced addition of Black Widow felt, SO FORCED. Tasha maintaining the illusion of her death is SO UNCONVINCING. Clint, Bucky, Cap, Madripoor high profile characters, all know she's alive already. Not to mention whatever bigwig coordinated with her for this mission. The art was good overall but the special f/x's that came from her Widow Stingers were SO TERRIBLE.

Trying to remember how long Bucky's fake death lasted. Wasn't long either.

    Speaking of her mission - another Celestial Story to end all Celestial stories? Yawn. And the Throwaway Scientist they transmodetransform here? Meh. And now Outlaw is 'infected' and is surely doomed? Meh.

Celestial Outlaw might be fun. Wait. NO! Now they've completely ruined Celestials to the point they're an infection?! Poor POOR Kirby.

I doubt Outlaw's infection will be permanent.

    THE MOON NATIONALIZED? Is the moon already divvyed up between countries? Is there a link to some site showing a map of who claims what areas? Ifff true, wonder who owns the Blue Area? And on a sidenote, who the heck is speaking the narration boxes in the prologue? Hardly relatable if the reader isn't made aware.

As far as I know, Marvel's Moon isn't that divvied. The only place anyone ever seems to go is the Blue Area.

That opening narration doesn't even make much sense. There's not much special about the mountains in Egypt. They're not especially tall or anything. The very fact that they are "in Egypt" means they are claimed.

    Do YOU think this has a shot at being a hot seller?

I don't think it ever did. Frankly, I'm not sure I want it to be. 20k-ish (like the previous series) is cool, imo. Maybe Widow will draw a few more thousand. Or maybe we'll lose some. :\ Hope not.

City of Heroes is BACK!
