Thoughts before the book: Well obviously this book is geared towards women and girl power so is this book right for me? With reading Seanan’s Spider-Gwen and Amazing Nightcrawler books recently as well as Leah William’s X-Tremist, I was less optimistic but then saw Kelly Thompson is on as well. She is someone who I thoroughly enjoy her work. Only thing I know about this book is that it features Captain Marvel (someone who I have been enjoying in her and Avengers book), Sue Storm (someone who I enjoy in her and a lot in the Ultimate books), and Storm (someone who feel like haven’t read much about her to get on the “Storm is amazing” bus). Let’s dig in and see what we have here…
We start off with Seanan’s story. Not going to lie, but at first I thought this issue was going to be what the first story was about and have a writer get assign a female superhero to write how they arrived at the camp. Kind of glad the camp story isn’t done at this issue because when we got to Sue Storm, I am very interested at the camp. Something smells fishy at the camp and this reader is looking forward to knowing what is up.
We do get a great moment with Sue and Reed, but the art is throwing it off. Definitely, should have gone with a different artist. Then comes the bad dialgoue out of the story, with Captain Marvel and seeing what she is doing prior to going to the camp. Seanan should have talked to Kelly for pointers on the character. Just a bit dull. Followed by what Storm is up to before going to camp and be down for a Storm book by Seanan. Shows how bad butt she is. Which in a book all about girl power, Storm makes the book.
Our next story curious to know why they had it in there. Felt like something that would be in an Archie comic, not a Marvel comic. The story should have been replaced by the girls of The Runaways to show how awesome they are.
Last story that that might be my favorite, done by Kelly Thompson. We get Jessica Jones getting a call from Elsa about needing her help. For a quick story, I was very interested in knowing what was the big emergency that Elsa needed Jessica like A.S.A.P.! Once we got the reason, had a big smile! Now I need Kelly to extend this story to be a miniseries!
I am shocked that I liked this! Thought it would have been forced girl power and how awful men are. First story was pretty good except for one part with bad dialogue and another with bad art. First story has me hooked on. The second story, would advise anyone to skip it because felt like it was oddly placed in this book. The third story, quick but such a tease that can’t wait to see what Kelly has in store! Would I recommend this? Oh yes I would!
