Infinity #3 did not spend much time atop the pile. As soon as the kid was in bed, I crept off to my reading chair to dig in. Wow. The Alliance of Galactic Badasses is licking its wounds and they are ready: some are ready to surrender and others are ready to die. The Avengers don’t like those options, and Cap has a plan. Of course he does. He’s Captain America.
The Kree and the Spartax are a bunch of weenies. The Skrull and Gladiator-led Shi’ar are ready to die. Cap is ready to win. He lays out a plan, and it doesn’t go strictly by the numbers, but “Surrender” isn’t in the man’s vocabulary, except in its imperative form. Here’s my favorite panel from the book:
And that, my friends, is why you call the man “Captain.” Shortly hereafter he hands the Builders their first serious Ass-Whupping, probably, well, ever.
Here’s my second favorite frame from Infinity #3:
Look! It’s the Kymellians! From Power Pack! Yay! Is Hickman pulling out all the stops or isn’t he? Too much awesome. Here’s a refresher for you…Lord Kofi Whitemane himself from, oh it’s gotta be around 1986 or 87. I’m too lazy to go downstairs in and look in the box right now.
Love it. Leave a Comment. Later.
