My comic book reading is pretty scattershot. I have read zero of the Secret War series. I heard about it when Captain America was revealed to be a Hydra agent. I have no idea what’s going on in the main series. I did stumble across Secret Warriors, and thought I’d read it since it has a couple of my favorites, Ms. Marvel and Lunella and Devil Dinosaur. Joining them are other Inhumans – Daisy, also known as Quake, Inferno, and Karnak. Secret Empire bounces around in time for each character before, during and after the invasion.
A Secret Empire calls for Secret Warriors! Captain America has been revealed to be an agent of Hydra – and now he’s coming for the Inhumans! But S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Daisy Johnson, a.k.a. Quake, wants no part of Hydra, and is heading underground! Recruiting Ms. Marvel, Moon Girl, Devil Dinosaur, Karnak and Inferno to her cause, she’ll fight to set things right – not just for the Inhumans, but for the entire country! But can even Quake handle the seismic rifts between her own teammates? It’s one part coming-of-age story, one part spy thriller – all action and all heart! Don’t miss the next (and final?) generation of Inhumans as they take the Marvel Universe by storm!
So far, I’m enjoying it. It’s an interesting team up. I’m liking the way Lunella interacts with the others. Deadpool’s appearance is pretty awesome. There are some great moments when they figure out which X-Men are time travelers, from a different dimension, or whatever. It seems like a gentle wink and nudge to those of us who find all the timelines, dimensional travel, and rebirths confusing. I do need to get caught up on what’s happening with Ms. Marvel in her own series. I just wish Secret Empire hadn’t ended on a cliffhanger with Moon Girl. I’m sure she’s fine. Right?
