Review: Uber #14
For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said, “‘The LORD said to my LORD: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”‘- Acts 2:34-35-Bible
There’s nothing like when people underestimate you from the onset. No matter who you are most people tend to judge others from their preconceived notions. We habitually go into most situations and base them on our experiences and level of knowledge. We basically make an “educated guess” on what will happen next. This same skill set is used to pre-judge people mostly on appearance and then possibly because they remind you of someone.
In the theater of war, military leaders cull from years of experience, data of the enemy, and military tactical history. Even with this wealth of knowledge sometimes, and actually quite often, the most prepared leaders are outmaneuvered. They cannot count on certain actors what some may call “wild cards,” as they often tip the balance of the battle and rarely is one prepared for contingencies. In the 14th installment of Uber, the Russians have unleashed their own wild card in battle of the superhumans.
We are taken to Hitler’s bunker, where his dead body is found by his personal military attaché, and with both him and Churchill dead, some new forerunners can seize power. As the reader finds out how the first airship was experimented on and eventually how they perfected the formula. We also find out how the killing of Hitler was no accident, as it had been a long gestating plan of action.
Overall, it’s a thrilling issue that gives readers another Easter egg on what is really going on that the reader won’t see otherwise. The story by Kieron Gillen is clever and enjoyable. The art by Gabriel Andrade is beautiful. Altogether, an excellent entry in this entertaining World War II series.
