Review: Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle #4 (of 4)
There’s always the road not taken which perplexes most of us. Choices govern our every day, and most of us worry if we made the right one. We tend to rely on context, intelligence and intuition, to make these decisions. Often one betrays the other, which makes us question it all, leaving us both maddened and feeling inferior.
Things are a bit more stacked when it comes to life or death. This becomes even more treacherous when it comes to super-powered individuals. In the final issue of Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle, we find the titular hero facing the one trap that may lead to fatal consequences.
We find Shilo enjoying a normal life, with his wife and daughter, as something that quite seems right and he starts to question everything. As we find out Shilo has been holding guilt for his brother’s death and how it has shaped his actions and made him a superhero. The reader soon realizes that Darkside has sent him to the Life Trap, to pull his MotherBoxx away from him. By issue’s end, Shilo defeats Omega and escapes the Life Trap, as he finally makes peace with his past sins
Overall, an issue cements Grant Morrison as one of the world’s best storytellers. The story by Morrison is thrilling. The art by Pasqual Ferry is remarkable. Altogether, a story that shows why this intriguing hero was brought back for another run.
