5: Pax Americana
This issue was truly a mind altering experience. I had to go through a few times to truly understand what exactly was going on. The characters are a mix of Watchmen, but also of the original Charlton characters. This issue might be the hardest to understand, but its definitely worth it. I can see this as a miniseries rather than a full run, mainly due to the conflict created in the issue. The Question searches for Algorithm 8 while on the run from Blue Beetle and Nightshade. We see the experiment and origins of Captain Atom and Peacemaker. However I want to learn the actual explanation behind the mystery algorithm itself.
Two words: JUSTICE AXIS. Need another excuse? Two more words: FREEDOM FIGHTERS. This could be a perfect set up to show that no one is a winner in a war. As we saw in the issue itself, Overman(The Superman of that world) feels the nazi way is wrong, but by the time the story starts, the world is set and he has to make the best he can of it. We can continue to see the mental turmoil he goes through, and perhaps turmoil of some other characters on the J.A. as well as the people around. We then could get some kick-ass action with the freedom fighters. We get introduced to them, but never learn anything about them. That was really my biggest issue with the story, and with a full run we can learn of the major players of this world.
Thunderworld....oh, oh Thunderworld. You are like a saturday morning cartoon from my childhood. You are colorful, nonsensical, and overall just fun. How delightful it is to see the Marvel Family at work, fighting Sivana and the monster society. I want to see so much more of the fun it is to be a marvel. SHAZAM has gotten so much more serious over the past few years, it's nice to have a fun version of the character again. I would love to see this as a weekly comic series, with jokes and laughs family friendly enough to share with siblings.
1: Society of Superheroes
This was the second issue of the series, and to me probably the coolest looking team throughout the multiverse. In a world where heroes go on adventures to ancient civilizations and go into fighting Nazi/Russian stereotypes, we have a group of interesting heroes that want to help their world fight against their evil counter parts. I want to see these characters go on adventures reminiscent to Indiana Jones and Doc Savage. Always leading the way would be Doc Fate(Definitely one of my picks for a multiversal team roster). I would love to see this team go through more adventures than war. Maybe throw in Earth 20 versions of other characters for good measure. I want an adventure like the days of pulp.
Thats it for top 5 friday(on saturday) for this week! What multiversity earth would you want to see as a series? Leave a comment and i'll see you next time!
