Issue Review
 
by RikerDonegal: Tigraís origin is convoluted and kinda silly, but the story is action-packed and kinda fun. The weakest link, by far, is the Werewolf By Night character. Tony Isabella does a fair job with him, but he really is an unusable character, due to the mechanics of his existence (He only appears for the three nights of the full moon, etc.) It just doesn't work in the Marvel Universe. And this story is a fine example because, midway through, we jump forward 24 hours and Jack is still hanging around on the beach (for some undisclosed reason). It just doesn't make sense. And this problem with using him in a story is one of the reasons I donít like the character. Luckily (for me) this story is mostly about Tigra, and I like her a lot. 8/10

  Way to shove one origin story on top of another. Don't like the character, take 5 panels to make a new one to super-seed the old one.

  Changing the origin so fast is sad, but I do prefer this Tigra to the Cat. Also, I know first-person narration is working for Jack in his own mag, but it feels strange having a character narrate the story and still knowing what his co-star is thinking all the time.

  Decent story. I can't exactly provide the comment I was originally thinking of because I'm sure I'd get banned or something lol.

  I'm not too certain what part of that Cat-People ceremony required the bikini...
Love the intro of Tigra, but overall the story was rather weak. Hydra wants to steal the black plague? Why? We can cure that now. And worst off was the poor werewolf who just spent the issue as a love sick puppy.

  This one is really dumb. Secret race of cat people? A werewolf with a crush? Hydra's big plan to steal a sample of a disease that *still exists today* and is actually pretty treatable? This is lame even by WWbN standards.
