Review: Wastelanders: Black Widow #1

Wastelanders: Black Widow #1

When it comes to mysterious characters in the MCU, there is only a handful.  One of those being satisfied in the recent Hawkeye series, which gave fans, some well deserved answers to our burning questions. As we found what happened to Yelena during the “Blip” and how she has coped with her sister’s death. We also found out exactly where the Kingpin has been during everything going on the wider Marvel Universe.

It is Yelena’s sister, Natasha AKA Black Widow that remains ever so enigmatic to longtime fans and viewers. AS Natasha rarely gives up as much as she takes, which is possibly a job hazard. AS being one of the world’s greatest spies, often means hiding in the shadows and plain sight. That is why she may be the most interesting character in the first 3 phases of the MCU. In the latest one shot story in the Wastelanders, we get Wastelanders: Black Widow #1, Natasha Looks to take on one more job, a secret that can change the world

We are taken to the domain of Lizard King, deep down in Florida, where he has taken a prisoner and Black Widow, long thought to have died in the Villain Uprising, has risen from hiding for one big score.  We find out happened to her after the villains won, Yelena burying her sister and taking over the mantle of Black Widow, scavenging the Wastelands the best way she could. She works her way though his lair, defeating Hulk’s grandchildren one by one and temporarily slowing down the Lizard King to get to  Elias Starr. By the issue’s end, Yelena finds him, but a shadow of his former self, leaving her to take down Red Skull all on her own.

Overall, Wastelanders: Black Widow #1 is an outstanding entry into the Wastelanders and proves that some heroes never die. The story by DeKnight  is incredible. The art by the creative is wonderful. Altogether, a story which shows why the MCU should make Yelena the next Black Widow.

Review: Wastelanders: Star-Lord #1

Wastelanders: Star-Lord #1

Guilt is one of the many emotions burden humans.  As this comes often when one feels they have done something wrong, whether at the time or soon after. Those whom we have wronged may have forgiven us, but we rarely forgive ourselves. There is also those of us who don’t feel guilt whatsoever, as they don’t see that they ever did anything wrong in the first place.

Rather than dwell on those many who are amoral, it is often those who are wrought with this burden that find ourselves revisiting this one memory that evokes guilt over and over again. As I can remember a museum exhibit I made my Mom miss, even though she made no big deal of it. I felt guilty then and it stings even more now she is no longer with us, because there is no way to undo that mistake. In Wastelanders: Star-Lord #1, we find Peter Quill back home on Earth feeling guilt for leaving the place he called home before the Ravagers took him.

We find Peter Quill back on Earth, shortly after defeating Galactus’s final threat on the planet, as he pays a tribute to those he left behind at Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. He is greeted by someone who looks like Kitty Pryde, who he chases at the once standing mansion, where he also runs into what looks like the specter of Cyclops and the rest of the X-Men. It turns out these are manifestations of guilt borne of his mind palaces, even brining up the ghosts of the Avengers and Nova, eliciting physical pain in exchange for mental anguish, tearing the very fibers of his character. By Issue’s end, we find out Shadow King was behind it all, and shuts him down once and for all, leaving Earth again and changing the designation of his ship to the name of his former love, the Pryde.

Overall, Wastelanders: Star-Lord #1 is the best of the Wastelanders one-shots so far. The story by Douek is bittersweet and satisfying. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that those of us who suffer from PTSD will more than identify with.
