Marvel Comics’ heroes are currently struggling to be judged harshly by an unstoppable space god. And this week saw another highly anticipated development in the blockbuster event series AX: Day of Judgment.
In May, Marvel Comics published its shopping requests for the month, including a brief description of: avengers #60, which read: “Hawkeye must prove that he brings the world at least as much joy and usefulness as a randomly chosen mailbox.”
To which I had only one thing to say:GodI hope that is meant literally.” Now we finally know the answer.
What else happens on the pages of our favorite comics? We’ll tell you. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of books our comics editor liked over the past week. It’s part society pages of superhero lives, part reading recommendations, part “look at this cool art.” There may be some spoilers. There may not be enough context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the latest edition, read this.)
Reader, it is used to be literal. Finally, Clint gave up hope of passing the Progenitor’s test, but the Celestial pardoned him anyway. Not because he had always done the right things, but because he had shown that he could grow. ‘Which,’ said the Progenitor, ‘apparently can’t do with a letterbox.’
I have the preEnd of Spider-Verse anthology problems, Edge of Spider-Verse, pretty hard. I think it’s just hard to invent a cool new Spider variant these days, after there have been so many official and fan-made versions already. T. rex Spider-Man? Come on, DC just did that with the whole damn Justice League.
But this week I had a few Spider variations that finally had me sitting up and chuckling: Spinstress, the Disney Princess of Spiderpersons, complete with her talking spider companion and her love interest, the handsome bard Merry James Watson.
And Peter Parkedcar, the Spider-Man of a Cars-like universe. Did I just come up with the phrase “car-like”? I hope so.
Using an imitation Comics Code Authority seal as a censorship bar. Will I ever get tired of this joke? No. The answer is no.
