I highly recommend this series, anyone child or adult, who loves superheros or science will have a blast!
I should have trusted his writing.
Jeremy's Nadia is far from a brooding spy or abused victim. She's a delightful genius. Her interactions with Mockingbird in the first issue locked me in. I devoured every issue and pre-ordered this trade the first day I could. The art and story are great.
I just wish Marvel had been able to keep it going.
Now she’s going to change the world by forming G.I.R.L., Genius In (Action) Research Labs and recruit other “lady adventure scientists”, brilliant and creative girls who have been overlooked because of their gender. Aided by Jarvis, her first stop is Moon Girl, but she also meets Taina, a roboticist; Lashayla, a physicist working on a teleporter; Priya, a geneticist; and rediscovers long-lost friend Ying, another Red Room trainee. (They’re also all women of color, and Taina is a wheelchair user.)
Writer Jeremy Whitley (Princeless) plays up Nadia’s foreignness, making humor out of her lack of knowledge of smoothies or landline phones or The Empire Strikes Back. I’m a sucker for “naive fish out of water” stories, and it provides an interesting undercurrent to her immense powers and intellectual skills. He’s a relatively newer creator, so his efforts aren’t always as subtle as they need to be, but the intentions are well-chosen, and there’s plenty of humor (always a plus). He also does a great job weaving her into the Marvel universe.
Artist Elsa Charretier manages to cope with all the dialogue and still capture the characters with distinct body language. That’s good, because with a lot of science girls, they could quickly become interchangeable if they weren’t each so unique. And she does a terrific job with the crazy mess of creativity that makes up Nadia’s lab, where she’s got dozens of projects and experiments all going at the same time.
It’s rare to see a hero so aggressively friendly as Nadia, and I love that. And she gets so excited when she meets her heroes. She and Mockingbird team up in the first issue, and instead of being impressed by her superheroing, Nadia geeks out over her biology work, which is a side of Bobbi Morse not everyone remembers. (She’s more often defined by her relationships, mostly with Hawkeye.) That idea of generational mentoring is something we’ve seen before in comics, but not with women.
Although there’s plenty of action (and wacky fights, including a giant rat and a wrestling tag-team), Nadia tries to talk things through first if she can. She talks to everyone, and she knows some cool people. Ms. Marvel guest-stars in the first issue, and Nadia’s lawyer (cause she’s got to get that citizenship thing worked out) is Matt Murdock (whom she first calls Modok). (Review originally posted at ComicsWorthReading.com.)
Then I read the first issue. For the first time since annihilation conquest and the DNA guardians run I was blown away by a comic! Nadia is a breath of fresh air and I love that she is hanks other daughter. There is a reason Nadia wants to become a new wasp. The story does a great job showing how she is obsessed with being like hank and carrying on his legacy. This is how to pass on a mantle while respecting what came before. Marvel did this right. The only other comic here that handled passing the torch so elegantly is riri Williams becoming iron heart. Marvel had a great thing here! so like every other comic without wolverine, Gwen pool, x men, or in humans they cancelled it in their ultimate wisdom.
