Judge: Hello Moar Powah! I’m here with Silverwolf to discuss Marvel NOW! And to throw in some tidbits about the New 52, a little over a year later. For starters, what are your initial thoughts of the project?

Silverwolf: Well, honestly I’ve got next to no interest in Marvel NOW! People who read my column consistently probably realize I vastly prefer DC, so when the relaunch was announced I met it with a big “meh.” I’d been reading Hawkeye since before the relaunch (and it’s an AWESOME series, check it out) but it didn’t see a re-numbering since it was only 4 issues in when this whole thing started.

So far, the only actual Marvel NOW! comic I’ve read is Captain America #1. I thought it was good…but not great. It was enjoyable, but not something I’m going to rush out to buy. That’s the general consensus I’ve been hearing from most fans: the Marvel NOW! comics are good, but not great.

Judge: Unlike DC’s New 52, Marvel NOW! is more of an update than a relaunch. No doubt it was partially influenced by the New 52. It’s a monkey see-monkey do business (look at Super Smas Bros. and Playstation All-Stars). It has the potential to be something pretty cool. I agree it’s just meh to good right now, but hopefully Marvel can learn from DC and not retcon things every 2 or 3 issues.

With the final battle coming to a head between the armies of Hell, the Questing Queen’s Horde, the forces of Avalon, and the Demon Knights themselves, this issue promised an exciting conclusion to Cornell’s saga. Will this run’s ending go down in history or should it be confined to time’s lost annals?
