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.

Return to the Wastelands of Old Man Logan in Wastelanders

This December, return to the post-apocalyptic Wastelands of Old Man Logan in five all-new stories set in the Marvel future where heroes have fallen, villains have won, and your favorite characters defy all odds to survive. Brought to you by all-star creators including writers Steven S. DeKnight, Ethan Sacks, Rich Douek, and Torunn Grønbekk, these five one-shots will focus on Wolverine, Hawkeye, Doctor Doom, Star-Lord, and making their first appearance in the Wastelands, Black Widow.

DeKnight, known for his work on Netflix’s Daredevil and Wolverine: Black, White & Blood, will lead the return alongside artist Ibrahim Moustafa in Wastelanders: Wolverine, an all-new story set in the days after the conclusion of the original Old Man Logan, as he fights once again to save the people of the Wastelands who have been crushed under the heel of the Red Skull and Bruce Banner! The super villains united and took out most of the world’s super heroes decades ago, and while the man known as Logn attempted to live a life of peace, he had to pop the claws once again to do what he does best! But saving the day looks different with the Baby Hulk under his care. Is Logan doing the right thing by protecting the progeny of the HULK or dooming what’s left of the war-torn world? Logan may not have long to ponder if he is crushed by the adamantium armor of his newfound enemy Downfall! Featuring a main cover by Josemaria Casanovas and connecting variant by Steve McNiven.

Wastelanders mastermind Ethan Sacks, writer of both Old Man Hawkeye and Old Man Quill, is also back with artist Ibraim Roberson to bring you a never-before-told story of Hawkeye’s training with Stick—the man formerly known as Daredevil—in Wastelanders: Hawkeye! Clint Barton’s sight may be gone, but his will to avenge is stronger than ever, and with the training and expert guidance of Matt Murdock, arrows will fly again! But what is Murdock’s actual target? And how will this change Hawkeye’s path in the Wastelands? This is one issue YOU can’t afford to miss! Featuring covers by Casanovas and McNiven.

The Mighty Valkyries writer Torunn Grønbekk and rising star Julius Ohta explore the complex nature of everyone’s favorite tyrant in Wastelanders: Doom! Doctor Doom helped wipe out the heroes on the Day the Villains Won, but even as he rules his domain in the Wastelands, a greater destiny calls to him. When a mysterious power blocks his oversight of a particular region, what he discovers will have ripple effects across the Wastelanders stories! With a cover by Casanovas.

Writer Rich Douek makes his Marvel Comics debut alongside artist Brent Peeples in Wastelanders: Star-Lord! The legendary Star-Lord has fallen on hard times. With the Guardians of the Galaxy disbanded, Peter Quill returned to Earth to find it a wasteland unlike anything he’s seen across the stars – heroes dead, villains in power. While he’s taken out one threat, others remain in the Wastelands, and Star-Lord’s own desire to assuage his guilt for being off-world during the calamity will land him right in the middle of another! Will Quill overcome the mysterious force waiting for him at the site of his lost love’s death? Or is she not really dead at all? With a cover by Casanovas.

Bookending the saga, DeKnight will team up with artist Well-Bee to introduce the Wastelander’s take on Natasha Romanoff in Wastelanders: Black Widow. The Lizard King has grown monstrous and deadlier than ever as the lord of his southern domain. But when rumor breaks that critical information is believed to be stored in his impenetrable fortress, only the greatest spy of all is up to the infiltration: the deadly Black Widow! But who is she, and how has she survived this many decades in the Wastelands undetected? With a cover by Casanovas.

Don’t miss the latest evolution of this fascinating saga when this all-new group of Wastelanders adventures hit stands in December!

Finding a cure for whatever it is that turned all of humanity into monsters proves almost impossible for even Reed Richards, Bruce Banner, Tony Stark and the greatest minds in the Marvel Universe.

David has a problem. He lives in a world of monsters that would love to devour him. He’s the last boy on Earth. The last human being on Earth. And these creatures that see him only as prey, they’re his former neighbors. He has one hope: to get to New York. To get to where Captain America and the rest of the heroes are. Alex Ross and Jim Krueger combine their abilities with artist Well-Bee to tell a very uncanny prequel to the legendary EARTH X trilogy.
