THE WAR IS OVER – AND THE MARVEL UNIVERSE MUST PICK UP THE PIECES!
Midgard is broken, and as heroes of Asgard and Earth alike start to sift through the pieces, new heroes — and villains — emerge. What’s next for Jane Foster, now free of the hammer she was willing to die to hold? Thor’s brother Loki faced a terrible fate in the War of the Realms — and now the god of mischief must make himself anew. For the Punisher, the war isn’t even close to finished — but this time, he’s got his own army. And for Thor himself, destiny has finally arrived. The God of Thunder strikes out for a whole new adventure!
GEEKY GUY COMICS VERDICT:
First things first, What did you all think of WOTR?? For me it was the best comic run i’ve read this year. The main story and character continuity flowed flawlessly and the climatic ending was a perfect way to close the curtain on such a hyped up spectacle.
The War of The Realms: Omega on the other hand didn’t really have me chopping at the bit like its predecessor. Instead of it being a true epilogue for the WOTR and everything it should have been, it fell short and was basically a book and of fragmented short character stories promoting what’s in store for the Marvel heroes in the upcoming Marvel universe. Just so you are aware of these let me break it down:
God and the Devil Walk into a Church - Daredevil and Heimdall
The Job I Have To Do - Jane Foster
Born Small - Loki
War Orphans - The Punisher
There’s part of me that wishes I hadn’t of read this as it kind of put a dampener on the well rounded and action packed ending in WOTR #6. Being a huge fan of Jason Aaron I guess my expectations for this were very high and based on the previous issue he did they shouldn’t have been anything less!! Is it me or were the rest of you hoping to get some closure for the events of War of the Realms? We did get that, but at the same time, this was really just a promo for the new character runs and stories from Marvel.
Overall I liked this comic but I didn’t love it. Why is Malekith on the cover?? he doesn’t even make an appearance?! For me when a comic is written and designed by so many different people you expect differences and slight changes to appear but I have to say surprisingly this didn’t happen here and the book is very cohesive. It’s not a comic that is necessary as a wrap up but I would say that new character stories created here are exciting and I can’t wait to see where they lead. With Loki #1 and Thor #15 already on the shelves I will definitely be picking up the Valkyrie book this week (released 24/07/19). Jason Aaron should be proud of the War he created and its future impact it’s going to have on the Marvel Universe. WATCH THIS SPACE…
