Harry Styles’ Marvel Character Is Blowing Up The Marvel Comics Universe

Eros, also known as Starfox, is voiced by Harry Styles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but in Marvel Comics he is currently being voiced by writer Kieron Gillen and artist Valerio Schiti. On the final page of last week AX: Judgment Day #3, the team revealed that the alien superhero may be key to unraveling the web of fallout the Avengers, X-Men, and Eternals have gotten themselves into in Marvel Comics’ summer crossover.

This is a pretty typical end page reveal for an event comic. Oooooh, this obscure character could have the ultimate relevance! Turn in next month to find out what happens next! But here’s why I’m intrigued: the idea that Eros and Thanos (inspired by the Freudian concept of eros and thanatos) are truly counterparts in every other way that their shared parentage never really flew with me. Sure, Thanos’ presence in the Marvel Universe would be tough for any character to live up to, but Eros is pretty much a joke character. He has always found “the power of love” to be less interesting and more difficult for comic writers to conceptualize than “the power of death.”

But this is not any comic book writer’s idea of ​​Eros. This is Kieron Gillen, who is everything on inventive reinventions of divine mortals, in a fast-paced story where the Avengers, X-Men and Eternals seem to have less than 24 hours to make the good of mankind outweigh the evil before an unstoppable space god destroys the Land.

What else is going on in the pages of our favorite comics? We’ll tell you. Welcome to Monday Funnies, Polygon’s weekly list of the books our comic editor enjoyed last week. They’re part superhero life society pages, part reading recommendations, part “check out 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 last edition, read this.)

Gillen and Schiti are actually doing a book called AX: Judgment Day something I want to read the moment each issue comes out. Each number relates to the lives of six normal human beings around the world and how they react to or are affected by the cosmic crisis. This should be corny, or boring, or feel weightless and forgettable, but It is not. The probability that all these characters die randomly is very highgiven certain plot points in the series, and I’ll be sad when it happens.

I’ve forgotten who I follow who tweeted something to the effect of: It’s batman: fortress actually low key great? And I was just thinking the same thing reading this issue. The tone has been hard to place, but writer Gary Whitta is settling into a sort of Silver Age Batman, one who is just as moody and impulsive, but cracks a dry joke here and there and doesn’t think it’s weird. be on a first name with a space squirrel.

You’re reading make a power bomb by Daniel Warren Johnson? Why aren’t you reading everything? make a power bomb? Check out this art! I’m not even in the wrestling fandom! I don’t even know what a moonsault is it is!

Nature Girl, Egg, Pyro, and Cypher discover a dead sea turtle on the beach of Krakoa, with a plastic bag in its mouth, in X-Men: Unlimited: X-Men Green #1 (2022).

The challenge of translating infinite-scroll comics made for phones into print comics is a perennial one for services like Webtoon, but an important one for readers who want to put their favorite series on a real shelf. I just want to applaud the team behind x men green; had he not known that the series was first published as an infinite scroll story in Marvel Unlimited, he would never have guessed from this issue.

The latest issue of Chip Zdarsky and Carmine Di Giandomenico’s batman: the knight He has a certain courage. Only a very confident creative team would attempt to write the definitive story of Bruce Wayne learning to be Batman. Only an even more confident team would ditch the nostalgia and populate the book almost entirely with original characters. only in pairs plus The unsuspecting team waits until issue #8 of a 10-issue series to reveal that the comic’s final boss is someone very familiar.

And that’s how you really surprise a reader with the idea of ​​Ra’s al Ghul showing up in a Batman story.

It came out a while ago, but I finally got to read Faith Erin Hicks’ book. go ahead and I don’t know if there is an object more to the measure of my affections: a comic about kids who like to ride horses but don’t really bond until they discover a shared interest in Star Trek.
