Iron Man #97 (v1) : Stark has a synthetic heart that is NOT connected to his armor, so how does charging the armor help?

Tales of Suspense #89b (v1) : Nice to see ol' Skeletor again (though I have to admit I knew it was coming - I saw the front of the next in the order as I downloaded from Marvel Unlimited). However, the Bucky twist was way too short. They ought to have revealed Bucky this iss, have him battle Cap to a cliffhanger, then leave the reveal to next issue. As it was, it felt rushed.

Amazing Fantasy #15d (v2) : This concept wore out its appeal quickly. They should have left it at the vampire one.

Marvel Team-Up #7 (v1) : How did Thor think he was going to get Spider-Man back from Asgard? He couldn't go there and I don't think I'd be relying on Odin to be nice.

Uncanny X-Men #146 (v1) : Yeah, definitely a Clea look on Polaris, I agree.

And I got a Westworld (the movie) vibe from "Storm" defacing.

JonahBlack Says:
Strange Tales #158a (v1) : Did the writing on this seem weird to anyone? That is, it read like most of the books of this time, but I felt like there was usually something different about Nick Fury. It was like Stan lost the tone of the book, or maybe the voice of the character (it read more like the Thing was in this fight). Or maybe he'd been trusting the artist more on this, and this time he was up to old tricks?

I had a hard time rating this book. I really liked the arc, and I loved the art. I liked the twist of having had the bomb the whole time, even if it was a bit (okay more than a bit) deus ex machina. However, the dialogue was distracting at best, and the mask thing was dumb.

In the end I gave it a four, mostly bolstered by the rest of the excellent arc. It got a boost for having a subtle call back to Fury's belt (It was supposed to be just for holding up his pants!)

(Something occurred to me and I had to come back and add this: Where did the extra eyepatch and monacle come for their disguises? I mean, maybe Strucker has a spare, but did Nick bring an extra eye patch?)

duncanm Says:
Jungle Action #19 (v2) : My theory about using "the Clan" on the cover would be that Marvel was afraid of either stores not stocking it or parents not allowing it to be bought if they knew the Klan were in the book. Heck, mid-70s I imagine there were still places that wouldn't stock it if they thought it was about a black man beating up the Klan.
For a story that is about fighting racism, which is of course awesome, that southern black family sure does feel all kinds of stereotypical.
Would love to see an adaptation of this arc in a Black Panther sequel. Just replace the Klan with the "alt-Right" and you're set.

Katryn Says:
Thor #208 (v1) : This loses a star for Thor thinking Sif has betrayed him. She saved your life, you arrogant arse! But I guess it's fair proof, if we needed it, that Thor is definitely Odin's son.

dadoodoflow Says:
Incredible Hulk #167 (v1) : - Pipes and cigars on a commercial flight, got to love the the 70s
- I wish I had been keeping count of all the times someone says "Ramrod" in the order. Was it a common word in the 60s and 70s? I have never heard it used as casually as it seems to be used in the Marvel Universe.
- Woah, Mad Betty! (Blam-a-lam)
- 5:6 looks like a classic Los Bros. Hernandez panel
- M.O.D.O.K., like Lockjaw, makes everything better
- If they are out in the reeds and swamps by the Meadowlands and Newark airport they are going to get some horrible disease
- Betty's eyes!
- Of course he Hulks out on her, thank Hermes that Roy Thomas isn't writing this
- Hulk leaves to pursue his passion for crumping (12:6)
- good issue

duncanm Says:
Doc Savage #7 (v2) : Good for a Doc Savage story. Kinda like saying it was pleasant for a root canal, but what can you do.
You know, next time I roll my eyes at how Batman is apparently an expert at everything, or how he always has the perfect thing on his utility belt, I'll just have to remember that the Doc did it first, and did it worse. I mean, he jumped out of a zeppelin and just did gymnastics to land safely.

dadoodoflow Says:
Man-Thing #4 (v1) : - No Joke, Fool Killer is the most bat-guano crazy we've encountered in the order so far
- Fool Killer running them all down with the truck is pretty shocking (I was actually relieved to see that the flood refugees survived)

- That was a pretty spectacular arc

- I don't think I would have liked these as much as I do know even 10 years ago. As it is I think they are some of the craziest, borderline genius comics we've read yet. I'm just on this wavelength right now.

- Now Playing "Foolkiller" Mose Allison

Iron Man #95 (v1) : Not thrilled with the return of the Washington problems, heart problems and Mantlo being given the book. It's announced in the letter column.

JonahBlack Says:
Strange Tales #157a (v1) : A friend, who is a Brazillian Jiu Jitsu Brown Belt, and I were mocking both the preponderance of heroes proclaiming Judo skills, and also Jack Kirby's complete lack of understanding of how Judo throws work. Looking at the page where Fury deals with 'plan K-11', I'm fairly sure Steranko at minimum glanced through a Judo book, because several of those throws look decent.

Katryn Says:
Avengers #108 (v1) : Rick Jones is nothing if not arrogant. It surely would have made more sense for Wanda to hide somewhere in the underground lair and free the others when the Phantom went running off. Hell, it would have made more sense for the Phantom to want to imitate Rick if he had shown any interest at all in him previously.

Marvel Team-Up #8 (v1) : Hoo-boy, another pile of stuff that belongs in the litter box. And the Cat had such promise, too....

It's almost as if Man-Killer was the embodiment of Marvel's unspoken belief in misogyny and why it should exist. It was a form of women's lib as seen through a fun-house mirror. Nah, that's almost dignifying the story.

1 star. The Cat deserved a lot better during this initial run of her character.

Captain America Comics #22c : Of course, Cap is such a do-gooder that it never occurred to him to use the Reaper's teachings against him. Would have been a nice twist though.

Avengers #231 (v1) : Star Fox? The real Star Fox is powered by a Super FX chip, and can do a barrel roll.

Russ Says:
The Cat #4 : Ugh....yeah, I hate to say it, but this one was a bunch of bull; the type that belongs in the litter box all covered up! Got any more bags of Gritty Kitty, Greer?

Final series grade: C-. There was a good premise here; but maybe it could've sold more with better individual stories. Spending several pages an issue on recaps didn't help matters. Nor did the very cheesy dialog; clearly not Linda Fite's strong suit here.

1 star for this issue. This one was just filler. We get one more appearance by the Cat in Marvel Team-Up #8, then an extended break before Greer's story really takes off.
