The Inhuman arc continues in New Warriors #7, and here’s my review!
When we last stopped a trio of Inhumans broke into Haechi’s home, planning to kill his family and friends and take him to join them. You have to understand, from a rational point of view, that’s stupid as hell. But they don’t strike me as smart. Either way Haechi straight up eats the explosion before it could kill anyone, turning into a mini-dragon in the process, allowing Sun Girl and Justice to deal with the fire starter and fume guy.
His family takes his transformation…. poorly. Not as bad as you would expect, but given he turned into a dragon you could understand it a little bit. Maybe if they took a moment to calm down and talk about this things would get better. But there’s no time for that as Sun Girl and Haechi get caught up in the teleportation of the third Inhuman, Night, leaving Justice alone.
Back on Mount Wundagore, the New Warriors have claimed the base as their own and are searching for the High Evolutionary by tracking celestial energy signatures like those found in his allies. Speedball annoys Water Snake by referring to her as though she were the friend he knew. They find three signatures from obviously evil-looking guys, but have to put it on the back-burner so they can go help Justice. The same goes for Scarlet Spider and Aracely, who are with the cat-human searching for the evil that she sensed earlier, but it’s not like she’s experienced in it even though the cat can sense it.
In Jakarta, Sun Girl wakes up to find Haechi out cold and herself surrounded by the Inhumans. Leaving aside the fact that they could have killed her while she was asleep instead of waiting for her to wake up, Hollow, gives a recap on when the Terrigen Mists were unleashed and basically thinks the world belongs to them and not humans. Basically he’s evil Magneto, or any racial extremist, so he’s not really original. Sun Girl jumps into the fire that blocks her from her equipment and takes a few shots to free Haechi, who dragons-up and gets ready to throw down.
At the New Warrior’s base, they try tracking Inhuman signatures down to find Haechi, but there’s so many and the number is only growing. Scarlet Spider tells Aracely not to get attached because they aren’t staying since they’re not heroes, but give it time. Justice, on the other hand, has called in a darkforce teleporter to track them down through the darkforce energy that Night used.
As the comic ends Haechi and Sun Girl run across the leader of the Inhumans, Lash, while someone manipulates the darkforce to drop the rest of the New Warriors into enemy territory and surrounds them.
Okay, review time…
I liked this issue. We’re seeing more of the fallout from Inhumanity, the art is amazing, and there’s the fact that Scarlet Spider never fails to amuse me with his cynicism. This issue gets a 5 out of 5.
