Pandora?  More Like Pan...bore...a

As we all know Forever Evil is over, and as we learned last issue Pandora is using her new powers to fight a more traditional superhero fight.  You know since she achieved her cursed life long goal of destroying the Seven Deadly Sins and all.  So Pandora and Marcus Severin are hitting the streets to fight evil wherever it may come, but what she's not expecting is a pissed off Vandal Savage that appears to be on the hunt for our favorite immortal, and a disgruntled agent of S.H.A.D.E. who also seems to have a grudge against our mother of all evil.  Let's dive into this month's Pandora and see how her new life choices are going.

Explain It!:

I guess Pandora is going to start out small for her first real foray into normal superheroing.  Her and Severin begin by taking down a group of thugs that are strong arming volunteers out of their Forever Evil emergency food and medicine.  Knowing Pandora from before it would be really simple for her to jump into action guns a blazin' and take down all these greedy scum bags.  But this new Pandora has sworn off killing, and it's a bit more of a workout.

Nearby the disgruntled, and newly rogue Agent Kincaid sets up a vantage point to use what is termed back at S.H.A.D.E. a "Immortal Killer".  Kincaid takes the shot, but apparently she's lousy at sharp shooting because the blast only hits Pandora's shoulder.  But really I have no idea how accurate you have to be for a weapon called "Immortal Killer".  So Pandora powers up, and Kincaid and her go at each other.  We also find out during this fight that Agent Kincaid is also a were-bird.......  Yeah a were-bird.  

In the end Pandora and Kincaid stand with guns pointing at each other's face, and Kincaid tells her that the blast she shot her with has ended her healing, and it looks like Pandora isn't immortal anymore.  I guess normally this would kind of be a good thing?  I don't know exactly how Pandora feels about her curse and all, but the timing sucks because Vandal Savage has finally caught up with his prey, and he doesn't look to happy.

I said before that Vandal Savage has been pissed off at our hero since he tried to open Pandora's box, and it made him feel guilty for every awful thing he's ever done.  But looking at the last page of this issue it looks like Savage has taken to double Whoppers with cheese as his comfort food.  I don't know what it is, but he looks like quite the fat bastard. 

Bits and Pieces:

This was a very boring issue.  While yes some possible game changing things happened, it really did nothing to keep me entertained, and that's not the ADD talking.  I normally really dig Pandora's book, but I don't know about the new direction that this series is taking, and from the news of it's cancellation last week we won't have long to see where it goes.  I guess not every issue can be great, but I look forward to this title every month, and I guess I just expect more.
