A Must Own for Marvel Fans
on September 23, 2009
On the fence about ordering this?
It's 1200 pages and oversized. But is it any good?
Here's the basic overview...
What if you landed in the Marvel Universe? A place full of web-swinging vigilantes, blind lawyers, Canadian government teams, family dynamics, persecuted mutants, and wealthy superheroes?
How would you react to them? By studying them closely.
Oh, and you have the power to do ANYTHING you wish.
It is the Beyonder's interactions with these heroes and the world around him that tries to corrupt him that makes this story. WHY does Daredevil, having lost his sight, continue to fight the good fight, both metahumans AND in a court room? WHY do mutants save humanity despite being hated themselves? WHY is Captain America the man he is?
The Beyonder doesn't view a street-walking prostitute as a "dirty, girl of the streets"...he sees this girl from an alien perspective and she changes him for the better. A touching esrly chapter in the story.
Get this before the price goes up. It cover all of Marvel in the 80's and will you give you a fresh perspective on your favorite characters.
