Avengers World has been a weird series. In this issue, we get the second (maybe third by now?) appearance of Euroforce. A new team created for the series. And in this issue we get all the origins of the team members.
After they’ve already been fighting for a few issues.
I like the series, I do. I like what it seems to be going for.

If you’re a fan of the 80s movie (and if you’re not, get off my site right now!) this comic is a perfect continuation. Powell gets the humor just right (I love that the demon, yes that demon from the end of the movie, has been wearing the same shirt for 4 issues that says, “Buy Me A Drink and I’ll Tell You I’m 18”). And this issue even saw the return of the big bads from the movie, after ol’ Jack succeeded in his mission. I’ll be sad if this comic ends. It’s a fun little book each month.

Well…that was all kind of weird to type out. So, another issue from the “Original Writer” (please don’t place a voodoo curse on me, Mr. Moore). We get development on poor Johnny Bates, there are clearly other powers at play in the ongoing Miracleman transformative universe, and Miracleman’s daughter is a Miraclebaby.
This is what I always heard it was. I feel the chaos and destruction train a coming…

I’m going to miss this comic so hard when it’s gone. I love Shocker (I don’t know why, I blame the 90s Spider-Man cartoon). I love Tombstone (ditto). I love Silvermane (hmmm…noticing a theme). And Hammerhead rules. I love super-villains not always being cackling megalomaniacal geniuses that want to ruin the world, “because EVIL!” I like seeing some crooks as just poor shlubs that really can’t do any better.
But more importantly, I just realized Nick Spencer must have loved the 90s Spider-Man cartoon!
I’ve been enjoying the series from the start. And in this issue, Kieron gives the first substantial Allied victory, a reason why the Axis powers are doing so well as well as teases us with the Manhattan Projects.
And Uberverse Manhattan Projects is exactly what I’ve been waiting for!
