Brian Michael Bendis continues his Marvel Goodbye Tour with the last issue of Jessica Jones and the next installment of ‘The Search for Tony Stark” in The Invincible Iron man. He now has two more Marvel issues to write before he takes over the duties on the main book I’m reading at DC Comics, Superman. He might be the gateway for me to start reading DC books regularly. To be honest, DC’s refresh initiative has been going a lot better than Marvel these days. The Legacy initiative has been a bust, and the way they’ve handled the resurrection of both Jean Grey AND the original Wolverine have been horrible. Yet another relaunch is scheduled this year. The shining hope at this point is Jason Aaron and Ed McGuinness streamlining the next Avengers book.
Feeling like a cross between The Gifted and Logan, The Darker Minds, the screen adaptation to the Alexandra Bracken young adult novel feels like a rehashed, mesh of a lot of other movies that have come before it. I could’ve sworn this was The Girl With All The Gifts trailer for the first few seconds. How will this compare to The New Mutants movie coming out later this year? In any case… kids with powers? I’m all in.
