The War Of The Realms Report – Who's Eating What This Week? (Spoilers)

Yesterday, Marvel Comics had six comics part of The War Of The Realms storyline, in which the various realms associated with Norse mythology have invaded Earth and divvied it up, under the leadership of Malekith, the Dark Elf. Bleeding Cool checked in with all of them… with special focus as to food. They say an army marches on its stomach, so what are the various armies eating? We asked the questions.

The hottest comic has probably been War Of The Realms: New Agents Of Atlas, launcing new character Wave, and kicking off new Agents Of Atlas ongoing series with teams new and old. Though War Of The Realms: New Agents Of Atlas #3 is less about launching and more about lunching. With spam all round in a multitude of fashions, Monty Python-style. No spam fritters though…

Auto Draft

While the plans of hellish demons seek to usurp Malekith's plans for their own. Why settle for Asia when they can see the world burn?

Auto Draft

While over in the main title, War Of The Realms #5, Thor is also getting a little toasty in the heart of the sun… and doesn't look like he's getting any food either, which is a shame, as it would make for quite the barbeque.

Auto Draft

While in Deadpool #13 by Skottie Young and Nic Klein which, surprisingly, is not the most jokey War Of The Realms book on the stands today, it's Deadpool rendition of Captain Marvel's request of him, in just those terms that set up the crossover.

Auto Draft

Even as Deadpool/Skottie Young reminds all that Jason Aaron, writer of The War Of The Realms also wrote Original Sin, when Marvel gave away promotional eyeballs.

Auto Draft

But soon having Deadpool sent to Australia, to take care of the trolls. That's what they say, It may have been, Golgafrinchan-syle, to get rid of him. As it turns out the Trolls were quite happy in the Outback and were leaving the populated cities alone. Though they did have an idea of what they would like to add to their war rations.

Auto Draft

May be less like Game Of Thrones and more like The Hobbit, there. We also meet three new Australian superheroes

Auto Draft

Nancy Nuke, Captain Outback and Tasmanian Devil. Hang on, couldn't Nancy Nuke just end this War Of The Realms really easily with a power like that? Pop up to Stonhenge…

Auto Draft

…turn Malekith into a nuclear bomb, blow up Salisbury, job done. We also catch up with Deadpool's Australian adventures in War Of The Realms #5

Auto Draft

Where he picked up a few new friends. And where Nick Cage's 'Sweet Christmas' is slightly more welcome than Captain Britain's equivalent in the same issue.

As to more food choices, Tony Stark: Iron Man #12 by Gail Simone and Paolo Villanelli is set before the first War Of The Realms issue and has Malekith mess with Tony Stark… just because. Maybe he knows where Odion's new armour came from.

Auto Draft

But has dragon in human form attack Stark Industries for all their gold… hang on, this really is like The Hobbt isn't it? Anyway, rations-wise, he seems to have a similar take to the Trolls.

Auto Draft

War Of The Realms: Journey Into Mystery #4 manages to avoid as much of the War Of The Realms as possible, as the henchmen of the Marvel Universe take all the conflagration to host their own trade conference and convention.

Auto Draft

And they have got all their rations ready for conference go-ers as well.

Auto Draft

Or rather they did. While Captain Marvel #6 also avoids Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit and Game Of Thrones comparisons…

Auto Draft…by going for Freaky Friday instead. Oh that Enchantress. Maybe she's been reading recent issues of Marvel Team-Up? Present or past Ms Marvels seem to be most at risk…

But if the Enchantress is expecting a royal welcome, she's forgotten what she's dealing with – Earth isn't going down without a fight.
