New Weapons for Daredevil and Jane Foster in Today's War Of The Realms Report (Spoilers)

Today sees the publication of The War Of The Realms: Omega #1, the final chapter of The War Of The Realms (even though Unstoppable Squirrel Girl still has a crossover to go) and a few post-war comedowns. Avengers #21 has a She-Hulk who could clearly do with a little personal attention…

The War Of The Realms

Has anyone told Blade he is carrying around a bit of the Weapon X programme on his back, as Boy-Thing? One thing to be careful of is that Thor #15 should also be read before The War of The Realms: Omega #1, just in case. Because Thor has scenes like this:

The War Of The Realms

While Omega tells us what that means.

The War Of The Realms

Jane Foster: Witchblade Valkyrie will be out soon. While Thor sets up Loki's new life…

The War Of The Realms

It's Omega that adds a little complication amongst said Giants.

The War Of The Realms

And Loki gets to weapon up too.

The War Of The Realms

He's not alone. Omega also has Heimdall give Daredevil new weapons to carry with him now that he no longer has 'The Sight'…

The War Of The Realms

Eddie Brock over in Venom #16 is having his own post-war flashbacks… and lessons to learn.

Changes The War Of The Realms Makes to Marvel Comics Today (Spoilers)

Avengers gives us more of Daredevil's godly visions we talked about last month. And now we have to add Starbrand to them all…

The War Of The Realms

And yes, while this feels like solid slashfic with Captain America, Iron Man and Thor all naked in a hot tub, to be joined by a She Hulk who clearly needs it…

The War Of The Realms

Thor only has one real love as seen in Thor #15, beyond both Jennifer Walters and Steve Rogers…

The War Of The Realms

It's hammer time. While in Omega, the Punisher has a solution to Manhattan's food crisis…

The War Of The Realms

Has he never read Skrull Kill Krew? And monsters or not, is eating the corpses of sentient beings where we are at now? But the Punisher is still hunting his great white frost giant…

Champions #7 promised a War Of The Realms crossover issue, but, aside from Ms Marvel having stepped down from leadership, the comic is rather War Of The Realms-free, rather choosing to pick up on plot points from Amazing Spider-Man last year, over the location of Nova's helmet…

The War Of The Realms

And also as a deep dive, back in Omega, as we meet paramedic Lisa Halloran, a colleague of Jane Foster…

The War Of The Realms

…she's joining Damage Control.

The War Of The Realms

Could we get more Damage Control in Marvel Comics titles soon? Cross fingers…
