223 – Secret Wars II

Secret Wars II

We get a pleasant surprise when we read “Secret Wars II” by Jim Shooter. This sequel to the 12-issue actionfest is surprisingly quirky, fun, and philosophical. Through nine issues, the Beyonder becomes physical, tries & fails to learn what it means to exist among humans, and finally forces mortality upon himself. Throughout the whole endeavor, nobody is really in any position to stop him. We talk about the wooing of Dazzler, the troubles in writing omniscience, and the insane things that were once continuity. Plus, we play Quotes! For more info on past shows, go to www.WelcometoComics.com. Support the show over at www.patreon.com/WelcometoComics. Next week: “Secret War” By Brian Michael Bendis!
