Female On “Mr. Phil”
So we got into a bunch of Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz confusion in this one. I went into the whole thing going on in “Superman” comics with this “Mr. Oz” guy being “Jor-El” before. Seems pretty stupid, but whatever. I’m going to switch gears and talk about “Secret Empire”.
Last week “Secret Empire: Omega” came out. I guess this is the end of this never-ending crossover for real this time. This… This one hurts. Most crossovers suck, but they have good art or good fights or something. This one mostly had art that didn’t fit at all and REALLY ham-fisted politics. The art would be great for some “crime” comic. This is superhero comic though.
I think the biggest thing that’s dumb about this is that something big is not really addressed at all. “Good” “Captain America” isn’t real. He’s some girl’s memory of the guy. The real “Captain America” is still alive and still evil. They could make something interesting out of this, but knowing comics they almost certainly won’t. Also they killed off “Black Widow” but they’re already hinting that she alive.
Tomorrow The Good Knight is replaced by Slowku as they continue to talk about dads. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
