THE FINALE TO THE FIRST VOLUME OF S.H.I.E.L.D.! This chapter comes to a close in a fashion that will have your jaw on the floor. It is Da Vinci vs. Newton with the fate of the world in the balance. Who is the Night Machine on the side of? What role will the Celestial Child play? The most talked about book of 2010 closes its first volume with a bang. But don’t worry, the same team will be back soon with volume 2!

1960 Rome: A massed battle begins between Newton’s and DaVinci’s armies, battling for determinism (no way to change the future) versus free will (we shape our destinies). Leonid is caught in the middle and uses his powers to be a ‘dynamo’ to change the battle and find a third way, blasting energy up into the air and forming a barrier between the two forces.

6000 years in the future: Howard fixes Nikola’s power source.

1955 New York: Two years after dropping off Leonid in Rome, Howard and Nathaniel track down Nikola Tesla and accidentally kill him when he attacks them. They are searching for a child. When they turn around again, Tesla is gone, leaving only a pool of blood.

6000 years in the future: Nikola’s power source, now fixed, causes another explosion. The white-haired lady convinces him to call a truce with Howard and Nathaniel so they can return home, since it was Nathaniel who caused them all to time travel. They hook up a device and leave.

1960 Rome: One either side of the barrier, Leonardo accuses Newton of wanting to end the world, while Newton says since it’s inevitable they shouldn’t run from their fate. Newton’s forces launch some devices that latch onto the shield-barrier and punch through, landing bombs on DaVinci’s army. Leonid drops the barrier and the battle resumes. Glowing Michelangelo materializes and says to Leonid that he was never meant to stop the fight. He says that he and Leonid will tear down the walls around what the two sides believe. Michelangelo reveals that he is the ‘Forever Man.’

S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 0

Hickman and Weaver's stellar series closes out its inaugural volume in high style! Things quit being philosophical and get physical as Davinci and Newton's armies clash in the City of the Immortals. Tesla's ready for round two with agents Stark of Richards. And the Forever Man reveals himself to a disillusioned Leonid.  The Good Weaver does an excellent job of making this battlefield look like a real warzone. What could've easily been a Saturday night sissy fight between brainiacs really feels l...

Review: S.H.I.E.L.D. #6 0

This is a really hard book to describe. The Shield's machinations shape the history of the Marvel at numerous points throughout history... simultaneously.  The Good Conceptually, I dig how the conflict between Newten and da Vinci comes down to difference in ideologies about fate and destiny. Hickman gives you some real, meaty philosophical questions to chew on as Weave and Strain dazzle you with some unabashed visual spectacle. Look at any panel from this and it's clear it's a cut from a very d...

Nikola Tesla is a Beast! 0

So what can be said after finishing up the first volume of S.H.I.L.D.? well for one It seems that Jonathan Hickman took the concept of what mainstream Shield is supposed to be in theory and executed it out in a very interesting fashion. I think for one to really get into this series required some suspension of belief. Yes Nikola Tesla was going around blowing things up, yet did it make him any less awesome or fun to read? for me it didn't, but then it differs from person to person. In regards to...
