    Oh... the Underverse

     Mighty Avengers #36

    Wow! This issue blew me away. A lot of things finally come to fruition in this last Mighty Avengers book. Again with the lack of true sequencing to the Siege crossover there are spoilers within this book that may upset some people. The payoff for reading this title came through solidly though. I don’t know if anybody will ever write Hank Pym, Scientist Supreme as well as Slott has. The art in this book is also astonishing. Pham did an excellent job capturing the vastness of the underverse and giving it a shape…that shape was Janet Van Dyne. We finally get to see the entire scope of what the Infinite Avengers Mansion was. This is what made Reed Richards concede to Pym nearly a year ago. I had always wondered how awesome something had to be to surprise and amaze Mr. Fantastic.

    Ultron closes in on Blackjack, Pym, and Jocasta with his army of brides. Pym’s intentions are discovered and Jocasta is not happy. It comes down to a battle of wits and the sacrifice of an Avenger. Afterwards Ultron leaves with one bride while Jarvis and Jocasta figure out how to go help the other mighty Avengers.

    There is a flash to fill in some gaps in story that were in the Thunderbolts book, and this one actually made sense to read after Thunderbolts #143. Again the Siege story line is all over the place and the books came out in virtually no sequence. Basically Pym zaps in to see that there is a sacrifice being made, that US Agent is down, and that his team needs him. The final showdown of Siege is mounting.

      The Wasp handles some absurd family drama in Pym space with the new Ultron Pym and a billion duplicate Jocastas.   THE GOOD   The Oedipal drama inherent in the Pym "family" has been explored in depth over the decades, but Slott finds an interesting angle on it by making Jocasta sweet on her "grandfather" and integrating Pym's status as "scientist supreme" into this. The scene where he officiates a robot wedding was particularly clever. Though I had some issue's with Pha...

      Ultron Pym. 0

      If you've been reading The Mighty Avengers from the begining than I really see no reason to miss this book.  Ultron makes his final attempt for this story arc to destroy his "father" and set himself up as the heir to Pym's legacy so to speak.  But this series has proven one thing, that Hank Pym always tries to stay one step ahead of his enemy, and you see that here.  Ultron's army of "brides" Pym manages to subvert back into just useless piles of metal basically.   And yes this story ends with a...
