New Warriors #12 (Final Issue) Review
New Warriors final issue! How will the team come back from the jaws of defeat! Read on and find out!
Okay, so the issue starts with the device going off and Justice rushing towards where they were, thinking how his team were the only ones ready but they weren’t enough to handle the threat. He’s talking to someone else, by the way.
Anyway, the teams seemed screwed until Justice mans the hell up and gives us the best line in the series with “It’s time for you to face Justice”. Round two goes off much better with Justice revealing the Celestials were not coming to the planet and he went ahead and confirmed it, meaning they’ve been trying to commit genocide for nothing. This puts Zuras’ lying ass in a tight spot, to which he promptly blames the High Evolutionary and escapes judgement with a stern warning.
So the day is saved and as the comic ends we see Justice was talking to Old Steve with plans to expand.
Okay, review time.
To cover the issue, I have to say that I was disappointed with how it ended. I understand the good guys had no chance in hell against the Eternals in a fair fight, but I at least expected Zuras to get what was coming to him. Instead he used the High Evolutionary as a patsy and only stopped because he couldn’t take both the New Warriors and the rest of his team, who have morals apparently.
It’s bittersweet as hell. 3 out of 5.
As for the series, you can tell it got cut short because we never explored Water Snake’s history or development besides some evil thing haunting her. Or that deal Waffles made. It feels cut short, not even rushed, and that they dragged the Inhuman thing out for as long as possible didn’t help. I’m forced to give the series, which I liked, a 3 out of 5.
It was a fun ride and the art was good, but it could have been better.
