Review: What If… Miles Morales #1

What If… Miles Morales #1

In a worlds where most of grew up with superheroes not looking like us, this is most definitely an exciting time. As movies are looking more like the real world. As authenticity demands identification, and the movie business has started to look like that, and so has the rest of the entertainment industry. It’s appalling to think that it took almost to the 21st century before we even saw a Black superhero onscreen, the first one of course, being Blade.

Then of course, this all changed when the MCU came into existence. As we eventually got see Falcon, Black Panther, War Machine, Valkyrie and Miles Morales. As these characters brought depth and dimension to the MCU and were even upgraded from their comic versions.  In the return of the classic What If series, we get What If… Miles Morales #1 where the title character shows that he would be a superhero no matter what version of him you get.

We are taken to an alternate universe, where they have restarted the Super Soldier program,  and it just so happens to be on the same military base where Miles’s dad and uncle were stationed. One mishap where his uncle Aaron brought the serum home, leads to Miles unintentionally inhaling the serum,  and becoming a super soldier. As he would train with his uncle , proving his mettle enough to where he goes on his first solo mission, as Captain America, where he would suffer his first loss , his uncle. He used the loss to shape him ,with the help of Falcon and SHIELD as he encounters a deadly foe in the Prowler, and  a new villain called Grey Skull,   who have teamed up to  steal a device which emits immense power. By issue’s end, Miles thwarts Prowler’s and Grey Skull’s plans, but soon finds out someone close ot him has betrayed him.

Overall, What If… Miles Morales #1 is a fun story which that reminds us why What If was such an epic series. The story by Ziglar is astounding. The art by the creative team is awe inspiring. Altogether, a story which shows why Miles Morales is such a powerful protagonist.

Review: Iron Fist #2

Iron Fist #2

Getting adjusted to a new situation is always difficult. You are often having to deal with new and sometimes obscure variables. Because it is you who deals with it, no one understands your struggle except you. It is whether or not you can adjust and overcome, that makes that new situation bearable.

It is how you find out just what you are made of. As your ability to go with the sea change versus go against it., says a lot about you. That is the essence of life , that change is constant. In Iron Fist #2, Lin Lie struggles to find out how to use his powers.

We are taken to Shanghai, where Lin Lie, who was once Sword Master, but now is Iron Fist and Min Mie as they battle a hoard of demons. As the battle draws to an end,  Lin Lie realizes he has a lot a great deal of what makes him the Iron Fist , the shards left of the Sword of Fu Xi. as he also tries to hone the Chi of Shou-Lao. Meanwhile in Kun Lun, Yang Yi  openly challenges Lin Lie, in a battle of skill, one that Sparrow Yu-Ti  quickly diffuses. By issue’s end, Lin gets trained by Sparrow Yu-Ti and an expected  adversary pops, igniting the Fu Xi.

Overall, Iron Fist #2 is a story that takes an interesting turn. The story by Wong is exhilarating. The art by creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, a story that astounds.
