Tales of Suspense #78b (v1) :
  • That's my line – "...we must continue to wear these ornate trappings, to strike fear and dread into the hearts of those who serve us... and those who oppose us, alike!" (THEM beekeeper) – Well, sorry, but they do not strike me as the most fear-striking outfits.

  • That frigi-defense circuit is a cornball idea, but I found it kinda cool (no pun intended!)

  • That chemical android's design was nice as well. Too bad we won't be seeing it again.

  • I guess this may be the first time that SHIELD expresses that it has supreme authority over the Avengers, which kind of sets the grounds for any further relationship.

  • Too bad Fury did not mention whether or not he read that letter from Cap before it was stolen by Hydra.

  • This series is slowly but steadily getting better. Like that Iron Man-Sub-Mariner crossover recently, I love that SHIELD's storyline overflows on other titles like this one or Iron Man's series. That meeting between Cap and Fury was overdue. And I was not disappointed. 4 stars for one of the best Cap solo stories so far.

X-Men #4 (v1) : Brotherhood is awesome. Love them all, love how pervy Mastermind and Toad are. Best X issue so far.

Amazing Spider-Man #10 (v1) : Why are you guys hard on Betty? She's Pete's first love.

There is no way that dweeb was the Big Man, who controlled the Enforcers and took over the NY mob. Very bad reveal, which took away from a really fantastic comic. Spidey is hands down the best comic so far in The Order due to the emotion, characters, romance, drama, subplots, villains, and comedy.

Daredevil #127 (v1) : Still amazes me that 127 issues in, Daredevil still struggles to find a reasonable voice for the character. He basically reads like an adult Spiderman except without the interesting life outside of the spandex, character motivation or viable villains.

Still haven't got most of his major foes: Kingpin, Bullseye, Elektra, the Hand or Typhoid Mary. We have seen The Owl, Mr Fear and Gladiator, but so far no story lines that define these villains. The most consistent villain so far I think is Stiltman, and that's not great.

Although theoretically Foggy and Karen Page are introduced, they rarely if ever do anything useful with them or the lawyer aspects.

But least we got Mike Murdoch and the Black Widow romance behind us. I still don't understand how this title didn't get cancelled yet.

Iron Man #54 (v1) : "It begins as all things begin: the defeat of volcanic Raga, son of fire -- and the disappearance of the occult Black Lama."

This opening line sets the tone for the remainder of the Mag which must just be Friedrich trolling the readership. Because obviously NOTHING ELSE in the history of forever started this way, including this issue which has NOTHING to do with the last issue. It's intentionally ridiculous!

Clearly, the rest of the comic is going to be Mike having a giggle. MacEvil? Raft building? Depressed robot? What else am I missing?

Laugh it up Mike, I don't think anyone else is getting your joke.

Iron Man #53 (v1) : So Mike Friedrich named Raga after himself? George Friedrich? Or maybe he named him after a family... Then has Iron man beat the tar out of him. I hope Mike felt better after whatever strange sort of therapy he concocted for himself in this, because I sure don't. FREAKIN' ONE STAR!

Amazing Spider-Man #9 (v1) : Spider-Man's Rogue Gallery is getting real strong and will eventually rival Bat-Man's.

The subplots were amazing here, too.

Daredevil #253 (v1) : This was really not enjoyable to read. A story kind of needs at least one likable character.

Fantastic Four #23 (v1) : There's no monthly statement for FF but Strange Tales sold 215,090 copies this month. Imagine what FF did.

How awesome was it that Doom "paid" his henchman- hahahaha!

Bad ending, though.

Thumbs up if you wanted Dr. Doom to win.

Uncanny X-Men #229 (v1) : I feel like Roma came out of nowhere a few issues back. I feel like that has been happening a lot on the mutant titles. Maybe that is because I am only reading them on MU and there are important issues missing. I also feel like things have been forgotten or ignored such as the brood showing up in New Mexico.

X-Men #3 (v1) : Let's stop with the political correctness of Jean's "consent" of being carried. She has telekinesis. If she was in danger she could have taken out all those little boys.

As for Professor X being a "creeper", see the real life story of the creator of Wonder Woman- he was with his student too. In terms of age, the age of consent in NY in 1963 was under 18. Heck, it's 16 in Canada in 2018. I do not condone it, but Stan had no intention of portraying Xavier as a creeper, so you are indeed reading the comic book out of context.

The real story in X-Men #3 is how The Blob is sympathetic. I read this comic a dozen of times from Marvel Masterworks in the 1980s and really wish things turned out differently for The Blob. Not only is he attacked immediately, but Xavier offers him the invitation but then flips out when Blob refuses it.

I also hate Scott Summer's arrogance, self-pity, and suit. He's 1000 times worse than Peter Parker, who at least can be optimistic, exciting, and is cute. Summers is a joykill.

Wish Wolverine would have killed him. I've always detested the X-Men milking their outsider, "special", and victimhood status and using "any means necessary" to push their agenda.

BTW I love how Kirby draws elephants in Marvel Comics.

Marvel Team-Up #108 (v1) : Cool cover. That's about it. Plus even though it's a continued story, a relatively short misunderstanding hero fight

Russ Says:
Werewolf by Night #31 (v1) : This is finally the story they didn't have the nerve to produce until now. It was a matter of time before the Werewolf would lash out and really hurt someone close to Jack. Really have to give some credit to Doug Moensch here; he hasn't been all that great up until now, but he wrote a gem here. And good ol' Buck just wouldn't quit until the girl was safe.

So now, what'll happen to Jack? I can see how and why the Werewolf would've attacked Buck with such viciousness here; the cold probably dulled his senses so he wouldn't have recognized Buck right off, not to mention the cold probably being annoying. But the big question is, will Jack recall what he did? Jack's been able to recall things he did as the Werewolf before, even as recent as GS Werewolf #5.

4 stars. Can't remember the last time I rated a Werewolf story this high, if I ever did it at all. And some hope for the title because of who debuts next issue....

New Mutants #27 (v1) : Lots has changed just over the last 15 years in the diagnosis of autism/ASD. And yes, it does seem like a theory that was at some point discredited, though I am not sure when.

What I think is considerably more relevant is the link between chuldhood trauma and Dissociative Disorder or Multiple Personality Disorder as that's much more clearly what Claremont is saying is happening to David. (And that would have been much more firmly within the collective consciousness in 1985.)

True to form, the term "autistic" seems like it just gets thrown in when people need to put a name to a behavior they can't explain.

Giant-Size Werewolf by Night #5 : Wow! Who put the 'shrooms in the Werewolf's doggie treats again? What a way for the Giant-Size line to go out.

1 star. Justify her love? Does Delandra think she's Madonna?

Fantastic Four #22 (v1) : 1st part was funny and an answer to the letters complaining that Sue has weak powers. Second part proves that there's a reason why Marvel hardly ever cited the SECOND APPEARANCES of famous villains in the footnotes in decades to come.

Sad part is the FF plays better as a comedy with no plot at this time.

Tales to Astonish #82a (v1) :
  • That's my line – "But, he can't know that I've donned a new suit of armor..." (Iron Man) – Well in fact, I'm quite positive anyone could. The other one was in shreds! Yet, once again, Sub-Mariner doesn't see it coming, which is a bit out of character. I always figured Namor was more perspicacious than that!

  • They had to change the artist after a few pages... and you can tell the difference right away. Kirby takes the fight inside the factory where he can draw tons of machines, with which he shines the most. But given that we were spoiled by Colan's outstanding art in the last issues, even King Kirby is no match anymore and I was left disappointed.

  • There has been at least one other cross-over in Marvel/Timely Comics but it occurred in the Golden Age. Interestingly, that story also involved the Sub-Mariner who was then fighting the original Human Torch in Marvel Mystery Comics and Human Torch Comics, if I remember well. And I think that it was also the first mini-arc in Marvel Universe.

  • I thought that Namor knew about judo. At least he did in the Golden Age, but along with everything else, he forgot all about it right before FF#4. And kungfufan is right. He did use it himself not too long ago. It appears that heroes like to assume their opponents never know about this or that martial art.

  • I can't say I was thrilled by this conclusion, which was a long and uneventful fight. 3 stars, and I'm being generous. Boy, do I miss Happy!

Journey into Mystery #104a (v1) : There's def no more reduction of Thor's powers.
Anyway, this comic really pushed the stakes up to have the gods face the giants in New York. This was a great battle royal and Loki the manipulator is funny.

Easy 4 stars, let's get that average up to at least 3.5 stars folks, this is a hidden gem!

Journey into Mystery #103a (v1) : Chic Stone is great inking here.
Enchantress, whom I first met in Secret Wars, had a great debut here. Hmmm, I am not taking notes, but is there another female villain so far in The Order (not counting the Hela flashback in Tales of Asgard or a female Skrull)?
Odin has actually been an antagonist for Thor in the last few issues, thinks are getting exciting.
Loki is a much better villain when he's scheming (like this issue) than hand-to-hand combat.

Thor #307b (v1) : Odin is such a chump. Let me release you from your punishment and then send you where I can’t keep my eye on you at all times. Oh but I will check on you when I think about it... which I don’t really want to.

Captain America #179 (v1) : Golden Archer? I was expecting someone dressed as a clown!

At least we kept the Falcon self-pity train at the station AND we called a halt to the Peggy storyline.

It was nice to see Hawkeye again.

So now, NOMAD! "You are Kirk Unit!"...oh, wrong Nomad.

Three stars.

Captain America #178 (v1) : Falcon wants to be the proudest hero in Valhalla.

Steve is learning stuff that Peter Parker has known for years.

Lucy Fur found out that two heads aren't necessarily better than one.

Incredible Hulk #149 (v1) : It bugged me that the Inheritor wasn't a robot, but him actually being a insectoid in the end was a pleasant surprise. Archie Goodwin and Herb Trimpe are a really great team on this book.

Fantastic Four #150b (v1) : Like Russ, I liked Sue calling Reed stupid.

I always thought it a bit strange that everyone would think Reed would put his son into a coma and NOT work to free him. Of course, he hasn't had a chance to do so.

In this issue, Johnny growing up a bit more and Tony and Thor having their regrets were nice touches as was the fact that we weren't buried under pages of Scarlet Witch/Vision/Mantis/Swordsman/Quicksilver...Doctor Scott!

Three stars.
