Now it’s time we took a look into Lady Spider world! Here’s my Spider-Man 2099 #8 review!
Miguel and Lady Spider arrive at the former safe zone only to see corpses lying around, much to the detriment of Lady Spider’s stomach. They share a moment of compassion with a hug, before they stumble across the giant robot that we lost to Solus before he got ganked by Kaine. They immediately decide to fix it up and she knows just the place to go.
She visits her time period and asks for permission to use the lab of Harold Osborn’s father, Norman Osborn as you would expect. He agrees, planning to attack it, and Miguel hitches a ride as they transfer it piece-by-piece. Miguel points out the Inheritors are weak to radiation, so if they had some for the robot it would screw the Inheritors over big time.
Anyway, Peter decides to call in and tell them about the new safe zone as Harold arrives to see Lady Spider and they get attacked by the Six Men of Sinestry. They get beaten by Lady Spider, Miguel, and the giant robot, before Miguel recognizes that the Doc Ock was using some radioactive materials to power his arms and has her get some Lead to contain it. Using parts from the six, they manage to fix the robot and get to leave, only for Lady Spider to wonder how Harold is doing. Harold goes to visit his father, only to get shot as the comic ends with the robot back in action.
Okay, review time…
Overall, it was another tie-in, but it was interesting over all. Shame about that Harold dude, but there was nothing to be done with it.
3 out of 5.
Okay, this event is starting to drag out, but I still have a self-proclaimed duty to review it. So here’s my review of Uncanny X-Men #30!
The issue starts out with Maria Hill receiving confirmation that Magik, Malloy, and Cyclops have been killed by missile fire. She doesn’t know whether to be happy or to get ready for war with the rest of the X-Men, but she gets on a plane to go see it for herself. At the same time, Eva is with Charles Xavier and gives him permission to look into her head to see why she’s supposedly angry at Cyclops while, in the present, Beast tells the others he’s dead now right before Storm suggests trying to kill him.
Anyway, the professor finally gives in and looks into her mind as Malloy casts Auto-Revive on himself but can’t do the same for other people, subsequently proving Cyclops point about how SHIELD were dicks and him deciding to end it today. End of World scenario, people. As for Charles, Eva then calls him out for saying one thing and then doing another when he threatens to simply wipe her mind and then send her off.
Emma, in grief, ends up sending out a psychic signal that hurts everyone in the JGS and then calls to Malloy, who is naked for some reason. Really, he can’t conjure up clothing or something? Anyway, she punches him in rage over Cyclops’ death, only for him to kill her too by accident.
So, that’s the last of the NXS staff. As for the students, the Stepford Sisters sense Emma’s death and Hijack decides it’s time to get into the game. Eva appears with Charles Xavier to do just that, once again violating the time stream. As the comic ends, he does his iconic line and hopefully we move into the final part of this arc.
Okay, review time….
Yeah, they’re wasting time at the point. As you may or may not know, Secret Wars is going to reboot the Marvel Universe, so with that on the way they’re killing as much time as possible by doing stupid things like SHIELD getting in a lucky missile strike and Malloy killing Emma. I’m sorry, but my patience for an arc that’s been dragging on for months with little shock value has run out.
3 out of 5, and that’s me being nice.
