Review of “Apathetic Avengers (The Faction Stories Book 1)” – J. Rose Alexander and Aurora Zahni

514gu2o3qfl
 

The only thing Rachel Hingis hated more than swimming was having to play well with others. Edgar Fern, nerd extraordinaire, couldn’t find anyone to play with. Life would have been just fine if they never crossed paths.

Instead, they collided.

The victims of an accidental experiment deep in the corn fields of Iowa, they and four others -Alex, Celeste, Laura and Susan – were changed, and not necessarily for the better. As a mysterious group (insert sinister title here) starts to pick off Red Bug’s students, they have a choice to make: become victims, or become heroes.

The bumpy road to being a masked avenger is fraught with conflict, mystery, explosions– and Freezees.

 
 
 
(request submitted by Aurora Zahni (author) for an honest critique)

When Aurora asked me to read Apathetic Avengers, I counted the days until the superhero book was in my greedy, little hands. Aurora knows I love comic/superheroes so he was confident I would enjoy this book… which I did. 
 
How could you not like these group of super teens. When their tale started in detention class and their personalities began to unfold, I immediately thought of The Breakfast Club; a movie all should watch and often. It’s a true classic!! 
 
As for the powers these teens possessed, we witnessed super-strength, telekinesis, magic wielder and my favorite —- the ability to transmute anything at the basic chemical level. Celeste (Chemical Avenger) turned gas into water and converted a bullet into garlic. Pretty wicked cool, right!! 
 
With all the special skills at the FBI’s disposal, their services were called upon often. They don’t save everyone but, like any true hero, they kept trying. 
 
However, thru all the high-packed action scenes, one question kept nagging at me — a loose end. How did these kids come upon their super abilities? Maybe this question will be answered in the sequel, but as a reader, I was hoping for some nuggets of information. 
 
On a final note, I’m not sure who quoted Speed but I loved it. Best action movie ever!!

Review of “James Patterson’s Max Ride First Flight #1 ” – Margueritte Bennett (Author – Marvel)

 

James Patterson’s Worldwide Bestselling Series gets a Marvel makeover. Follow the soaring adventures of Max and her extraordinary ‘flock’–Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gasman and Angel–as they try to escape their creators and defend themselves from the diabolical Erasers. Along the way Max discovers her purpose – saving the world – but can she?
 
 
 
 
 
With such a fantastic, vibrant cover, I was prepared to be blown away by the graphics and was majorly let-down. For Marvel, I expected more. Based off the detail on the cover, I expected more. What a shame. The “Flock” looked drawn by an amateur. Sorry, Alex Sanchez (Artist) but I stand by my opinion of your work. 
 
As for the storyline, you don’t need to read the books to follow this story. Bennett pretty much summed it all up. As a reader of the series, I found this boring. It ended too quickly and really didn’t leave me excited or thirsty for more. I think individuals who haven’t followed the series, like myself, will agree this was just BLAH.

Review of “Hulk: The Complete Collection Volume 1” – by Jeph Loeb

 

Red alert! There’s a sadistic new red-skinned Hulk in the Marvel Universe, with keen intelligence and a radioactive touch! Who or what is he? And with Marvel’s heroes powerless against him, will it take a Hulk to catch a Hulk? It’s an explosive battle as the red and green Hulks collide! But even as Bruce Banner is attacked by a pack of wild Wendigos, She-Hulk recruits a cavalry of super heroines including Valkyrie, Thundra, Ms. Marvel and Storm! Plus: the Defenders are reassembled to take down the Red Hulk, but he’s got a team of his own!

 
 
 

Hulk has to be the most badass character Marvel has created for us. He is a “man” of few words. Yeah, I like he lets his actions speak for himself. 

In this collection, we met Red Hulk (Rulk) who was a chatterbox but also brought the pain. His battles against everyone under the sun created a fast pace storyline.  

Most memorable scene à When Rulk took Thor’s hammer. Sorry folks but I like when Thor gets taken down a notch. He irritates the hell out of me. 

 Now the epic flow of words wouldn’t have packed quite the power punch without the illustrative talents of Ed McGuinness, Arthur Adams, and Frank Cho. 

 You three have mad skills!!!! Errrr, you four. We mustn’t forget Jeph Loeb. 🙂

 And Super Chicks, better luck next time!

Review of “Death of Wolverine” – Charles Soule

All roads must end somewhere, and every hero’s story eventually comes to a close. For Logan, the century-old mutant known as Wolverine, that time is now. The loss of his healing factor and the traumatic events of “Three Months To Die” have all led to this, the single most important X-Men event of the decade. Over the years, Logan has been a warrior, a hero, a renegade, a savage, a samurai, a teacher – and so much more. Logan has spent decades being the best there is at what he does…but even the best fade away eventually. And now, the greatest X-Men hero will play a role he’s never played before in this solemn special event brought to you by industry superstars Charles Soule and Steve McNiven.

 
 
I hate to see such a fan favorite cease to exist but I thought Charles/Marvel orchestrated a remarkable exit. 
 
The majority of the finale was rather boring but the ending made it worth waiting for. 
 
And Steve McNiven (Illustrator), you did a helluva good job bringing the story to life!
