THE (IN)FAMOUS X-MAN!

Now that Kamala is very notably and very publicly an X-Man, she is attracting all sorts of attention… and you know who uses attention as currency?

    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: Vellani and Pirzada craft a fun and engaging adventure that gives Kamala a much-needed break from the seriousness of her arc. I like the digs at influencer culture as well as the perfect transition in tactics from Mojo. The story is fun and entertaining and leaves enough of a tease in the middle and towards the end of the issue to make me interested in seeing what happens next.

    The Art: Godlewski delivers some fun and intriguing art throughout the issue. The lighter tone of the story is perfect for the visual style at play here and it beautifully captures the levity of the story visually.

    Nerd Initiative

    This issue takes us to a different planet where we see a familiar X-Men foe if you have been watching the ’97 series lately. Iman and Sabir are given the liberty to do what they please with these characters, and the amount of love for the material is shown in the writing. Kamala is on an adventurous tale to find herself and there isn’t anyone better to write her tale.

    Meanwhile, the various colors and artistry in this issue are on display. Getting to showcase a new look for Kamala and bringing a rock and roll vibe to her was a blast in this issue. The colors are vibrant, and while this issue does not have as much action, it still is quite a fun tale.

    Focusing on a tongue-in-cheek modern-day story surrounded by how many views one gets and how that could be their downfall plays well into modern society, which an X-Men tale often does well. Though I may not be the exact audience, as the writing did feel shallow at times and some of the dialogue cringe, I know that there are many out there for whom this was made precisely. Definitely pick this up!

    Major Spoilers

    I liked the commentary on Ms. Marvel: Mutant Menace #2. It gives a glimpse into the fast-paced environment of the internet that relates to a younger audience while still giving an older reader something to grab onto. Ms. Marvel has always been a great character as she handles more identity crises than most other heroes in the Marvel Universe.

    Iman Vellani and Sabir Pirzada are clearly in love with the Marvel Universe and that admiration for the comic book locale shines through in Mutant Menace. It’s also clear that the writers are having an absolute ball with Kamala as she finds herself struggling with being the latest member of the Mojoverse. There are some issues with the art here as it can often feel like a good deal of detail is lost in the sea of hilarious antics. Mutant Menace is a fun romp despite the troubles and tragedies facing Marvel’s mutants and I look forward to see where Ms. Marvel goes next in this series.

    Geek'd Out

    As much as I enjoy reading Ms. Marvel comics, for example, her integration in Fall has not felt entirely organic, and Mutant Menace seems like it wants to be its own thing unconnected to the larger story. Wolverine, which is not technically tied to the event, has a similar issue, because it seems like it should have concluded its run before the event so as to not confuse readers of its place in the narrative. I wonder how successful FotHoX would have been had it just consistent of the two interlocking titles (Fall of the House of X/Rise of the House of X) like how House of X/Powers of X was published; some of the tie-ins have been genuinely enlightening, but not all.
