Venom’s son is taking over his dad’s mantle in Marvel’s new comics
With completion of the Venom-focused King in Black occasion, Eddie Brock and his symbiote have a brand name brand-new status quo: Eddie is the brand-new King in Black, the man that the entire symbiote types appreciates as a leader. In this week’s Venom #200, a finale problem for Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman’s operate on the character, we discovered precisely what that implies.
With his brand-new capability to translucent the eyes and direct the actions of billions of symbiotes throughout the galaxy, Eddie is battling bad people and doing great on a much, much larger scale. However, all that hivemind time is taking its toll, aging him overnight into strong Old Male Venom area.
So it’s a good idea there’s some young blood around to combine with his initial symbiote and battle bad people in New york city City.
What else is taking place in the pages of our preferred comics? We’ll inform you. Invite to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books that our comics editor enjoyed this previous week. It’s part society pages of superhero lives, part reading suggestions, part “look at this cool art.” There might be some spoilers. There might not suffice context. However there will be fantastic comics. (And if you missed the last edition, read this.)
Cates and Stegman introduced the world to Dylan Brock, the son Eddie never knew he had, who’s got his own weird symbiote-related powers, and now Dylan Brock, angry high school student with a good heart, is teaming up with his dad’s symbiote to fight crime — with his dad observing and advising through psychic linkup. It’s Batman Beyond, but with Venom, and that’s a fantastic formula.
Static is back in comics for a new generation of readers, and I think one of my favorite things about it is the clear anime and manga influence in Chrischross’ fight choreography. It’s a great fit for the character.
bought a zoo terraformed Mars in a single evening this week, and I like to think that Magneto was humming “Mars, Bringer of War” the whole time he was dragging iron-rich asteroids from the Kuiper belt to Mars’ core, just like that bit in The Venture Bros.
I just thought you’d like to know that there’s a comic out now where the Magical Girls are secretly evil and the monsters they fight are people who absorb power through human touch — like queer smooching — and use that power to turn into things like large pink axolotl dragons. That seems relevant to at least some of you.
Supergirl: Woman of Tomorrow started this week with a swash buckling adventure when Supergirl gets roped into an alien teen’s revenge quest on a planet with a red sun, however what’s really going to keep me coming back for more is Bilquis Evely’s art, as always.
The one thing I can say for certain when I pick up an issue of Ultramega is that it is going to do something I absolutely could not have predicted. Like the severed head of a kid’s giant hero father dropping back to earth, still alive, after a decade. I know virtually nothing about the Kyodai hero genre it’s playing with but I am fully purchased in.
Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo’s Nightwing is basically “What if Nightwing was the Fraction/Aja Hawkeye,” and I am not complaining. Also I would like to understand where in the DC universe Barbara got that tee shirt.
