New Warriors #11 Review
The Children of the Celestials have arrived in the aftermath of the heroes victory. Will the New Warriors survive? Read my review and find out.
The comic opens with Justice being dragged off by thespeedster of the group and refusing to listen as he says they’re trying to save the world. Meanwhile the others are just standing around as Scarlet Spider gets his ass beat like a drum. High Evolutionary tells them to kill him and be done with it, but Speedball runs interference and gets knocked around so hard he starts thinking their deaths are for the better.
Of course, once that moment passes they start doing better than they really have any right to. And then they get right back to where they were before until Nova pulls a win out of his ass. Then he gets beaten down and the team gets strung up to the murder machine before Hummingbird, who went into Zuras’ mind, claims he’s lying while Water Snake ganks the High Evolutionary before getting laser-beamed. As the comic ends Speedball thinks he wants to kill the man but can’t and there’s no hope, but Justice has dug himself out of his snowy grave.
Okay review time.
So mostly this was a curb-stomp issue. Not that much of a surprise really, other than learning that this whole thing was likely a ploy on Zuras behalf and how cynical Speedball really was. No wonder Hummingbird liked him. 4 out of 5.
