The Awesomeness Of Jean Grey In This Week’s Marvel Legacy Titles

Posted by October 25, 2017 Comment

It’s time for a quick run through this week’s Marvel Legacy titles to see what’s what. We’ve noted that Amazing Spider-Man #790 is dealing with a peculiarly broke Human Torch and the fallout of Parker Industries — no, we can’t work that one out, either.

THE FALL OF PARKER Part 2
Down on your luck Peter Parker is back, for good or ill. New York has changed, and so has Peter – but entering a new phase of his Spider-Man life isn’t easy; neither are new relationships OR new foes. Peter Parker is not the Spider-Man you remember, but why is he taking his fight to THE DAILY BUGLE? And what happened to PARKER INDUSTRIES?

And the legacy of the Fantastic Four from a publisher that won’t publish their adventures.

Not the only one dealing with post-Secret Empire squabbles, as Captain Marvel #125 has Carol probably in the lowest point in her life after her space station went kablooey,

Both Peter and Carol are crashing in other people’s places, it seems. How the mighty have fallen — if it doesn’t work out with Mockingbird, maybe they could move in somewhere together?

Now, Secret Empire also taught us that banning teleportation was a sign of fascism.

Something America #8 is happy to underline as the balance between freedom and security gets weaponised once again.

While U.S.Avengers #11 does indeed follow through with what we suggested, with both Riverdale and 1930s gangsters in space going back to Fantastic Four’s ’60s adventures.

And she’d probably have a similar retort to Deadpool in Despicable Deadpool #288, confessing to Cable just what he’s been up to with Cable’s robot arm…

It’s not quite Howard Chaykin‘s gag from today’s Ruff & Reddy – but it’s not far off.

DEADPOOL KILLS CABLE Part 2

Of course, anyone who were to take such a thing as an allegory for Marvel Legacy would be looked upon very poorly.
