January 25, 2012 - An attempt at eternity
Leaning toward Hulk - just over that cover!
Always hated the Speedshots.
They were a stupid concept from the beginning. Take some silly dude and run it through the same concept yet again. "Sir, this hasn't worked but that ONE time." "That's OKAY! THIS time will be different! Oh, oops.
This story has some merit, though. The cover sucks. Like SUCKS sucks. The hair is wrong to begin with, and the seated Bloodshot looks dumb.
The story is excellent. I am loving the direction that the line has gone. It is following a great path - easy to see where it is going, but the fight scene is particularly enthralling in here. Fun. I never expect some EARTH shattering story, but Bloodshot has delivered the goods!
This Giant-Man story is a pretty good one. Flashing back to the scenario - Giant-Man gets knocked out, and some second-rate hood grabs the costume to jump into the identity, and ends up fighting Wasp - because he is a new criminal, of course. I never understood why Giant-Man had so many fans and fan clubs in these early issues.
The Hulk story has an interesting line. Nice to continue the story from the last issue - and I truly didn't see Hulk escaping from the chains by becoming Banner. Right now, most of the other characters seem so flat - my impression of most of the Hulk at this point, but... Hopefully these characters will get stronger.
