Having watched and reviewed several motion comics, I am never surprised by the mixed reviews that fans give them. Some folks hate them outright while others are at least appreciative of some great storylines seeing a new medium. I’m sure Wolverine Weapon X: Tomorrow Dies Today will be no different. At least this time there is time travel involved. I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that the new X-Men movie is coming out this month, right?
Well, this story is all about the Deathloks. Their primary mission is to travel through time and kill superheroes in the past before they become a problem in the future. This includes slaying children outright and even murdering parents who are destined to have superhero children. Being cyborgs (that’s a mix of robot and human, in case you didn’t know), they are programmed to kill and follow their orders without fail, using their enhanced abilities to do so. I won’t bury you in details but suffice to say that they are making great headway on their list when the movie starts in.
The previous epic story from Thor: God of Thunder was one of the surprise hits of the Marvel Universe. The two story arcs were The God Butcher and The God Bomb and these two runs are must-reads for both Thor fans and fans of fantasy storytelling. That story has ended and the next story arc from the creative team of writer Jason Aaron and artist Ron Garney promises to be even more fantastical with many of the tropes of traditional fantasy stories, including dragons coming more into play. The new story, which just began in issue #13 titled the Accursed, promises the return of one of Thor’s most powerful enemies, Malekith!
We have for your perusal from Marvel some early images from the forthcoming Thor God of Thunder #14! Check out the preview here below.
