Another Wednesday, another large pile of comics to read!
This week, comics taught me that it's not a good idea to reason with Wonder Woman, don't mess with Charles Xavier and Spock doesn't like Jelly Babies.
This week we review Justice League #11, Avengers vs. X-Men #8 and Star Trek: TNG/Doctor Who #3.
I know this is a lot less comics than I usually review but I'm struggling with a cold right now. I couldn't get as much written as I'd normally like.
If anyone has any specific titles you'd like me to review here, sound off in the comments. I'll try to get to all I can!
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD!
The League's newest villain strikes at the heart of the team and they may not recover.
David Grimes comes of as extremely sympathetic in this issue. He's a villain but he's not evil. His motivations are fueled by unfathomable sadness and loss.
Anyway, the League is affected by his misery powers and are lashing out at each other. This may have longer reaching effects than they realize.
I really like how their handling Graves's power source, using Hindu mythology of Asuras.
In the Shazam back up, events are coming to a head. Sivanna has released Black Adam while Billy takes a fateful train ride to the Rock of Eternity.
It's Namor vs. everyone!
The Phoenix'd up Namor wages war on the Avengers in Wakanda. Namor unleashes his sea monster army, running rampant in Black Panther's country leading to all of the Avengers assembling to repel the mad king.
Just barely holding their own the Avengers are forced to retreat to the magical Kung Fu city of K'un-Lun as the Phoenix Five may become even more powerful.
While this is yet another issue that's entirely a brawl, this one has a purpose as there are actual consequences for it.
This is the first issue where there's a balance between the two franchises.
Both the Doctor's and Star Trek's timelines are starting to merge however. The Doctor gains new memories about a past adventure with the original crew.
Here's where the bulk of the issue takes place. Kirk and his original Enterprise crew investigate a disturbance with a Star Fleet installation. While exploring a mysterious man in a scarf shows up and helps them. It's a full blown sixties crossover as the fourth Doctor teams up with the original Enterprise crew to foil a Cybermen plot. The Cybermen also look like they did in the sixties which is a very nice touch.
I may be a bit biased with my review of this issue though. These are my favorite incarnations of both Doctor Who and Star Trek so I was really excited to see them crossover.
