Devil Comics Review | Batman / Flash: The Button

Hype Following DC Rebirth, Batman finds the Watchmen Button within the Batcave. Now the search begins to discover where the Button came from with the help from the Flash. The story brings back the Reverse Flash who remembers the events from Flashpoint, the Thomas Wayne Batman, and the return of Jay Garrick the Golden Age Flash.

Rehash After obtaining the Psycho Pirate’s mask from Bane, the mask and the Button interact with one another attracting the Reverse Flash who beats Batman down. The Reverse Flash takes the Button and disappears then reappears after seeing the face of God. He is reduced to bones as the Flash arrives to discover a defeated Batman and the death of the Reverse Flash.

Both Batman and the Flash use the Cosmic Treadmill and discover past lives and end up in the Flashpoint Universe with Thomas Wayne. We discovered the Flashpoint Universe continued after Flash travelled to the New 52. The Batmen and the Flash team up and stop the soldiers from Atlantis and Themyscira. The Flashpoint Universe collapses as Batman and the Flash use the Cosmic Treadmill and escape into the timestream. They find the Reverse Flash with the Button before his death claiming he knows who the Button belongs to. The Reverse Flash confronts Dr. Manhattan and is killed as Jay Garrick rescues both Batman and the Flash who still does not know who is Jay Garrick. 

Feedback Anticipation has been building up with this event however little answers are provided as the series comes to a close. The visitation to the Flashpoint Universe is one of the highlights of the Button where we see both Thomas and his son interact with one another. Thomas tells his son let the Batman die and become a father like he never was. The emotional impact gives the series weight as it heads towards the conclusion. The story leads to Doomsday Clock available in November 2017.

Weekly Roundup | Marvel Legacy

Marvel is releasing a 50 page one shot titled Marvel Legacy by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic in September which will revert long-running titles into Legacy numbering. Apparently Marvel Legacy is born out of the Generations event running between August and September 2017. Artist Esad Ribic has worked with Jason Aaron before on Thor and also with Jonathan Hickman on Secret Wars in 2015 where the Fantastic Four began mapping the Marvel Multiverse. Most likely Marvel Legacy is the return of the Fantastic Four as well as a threat discovered while mapping the Marvel Multiverse.

Weekly Roundup | Marvel Diversity and the Ardian Syaf Controversy

Marvel revealed it will take an 18-month break from big crossover events following Secret Empire to focus on their core titles and a back to basics approach. Creative teams can tell their stories without interruption and prepare themselves with single-line events. The previous break lasted between 2000 and 2005 and started up again with House of M in 2005 following the success of DC Comics Identity Crisis in 2004.

Significant events introduced new characters and ideas which sets up for long term potential within the comic book series. The next big crossover event for Marvel will be in 2019. The reason Marvel is taking this publishing strategy is due to a slump in sales following DC Comics Rebirth while Marvel provided us with Civil War II.

Retailers stock what sells and if Marvel replaces a Fantastic Four title with Squirrel Girl and Spider-Gwen then expect sales to crumble. Marvel would rather blame customers not wanting diversity than rather accepting what customers really want. People are already prepared to purchase the trade as the first issue of a new comic rolls at Marvel. Training their customers to be trade paperback readers instead of a monthly one which allows them to be apart of a community. They need to commit and engage with an audience to build diversity and inclusion through their product line. When DC Rebirth came out people were willing to experiment with their new titles because of the quality and the buy-in which was already established. They have built the monthly readership well to avoid sales attrition which Marvel is suffering from.

While Marvel deals with its slumping sales and diversity issue, another controversy rises with Indonesia artist Ardian Syaf when he put hidden anti-Christian and anti-Semitic messages in the new X-Men Gold comic. He sighted a Quran verse 5:51 which states “O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you – then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.” His response for being caught and fired was “Marvel is owned by Disney. When Jews are offended, there is no mercy.” 

Adrian Syaf thought he could get away with the hidden messages. Right now Muslim artists are going to get vetted because an opportunity was offered and it was betrayed. You cannot blame the Trump Presidency for this. You have to take it for what it is and move forward.

Devil Comics Review | Thor [2017] Ragnarok

After the Age of Ultron, Thor decides to investigate the Infinity Stones which leads him to the events of Ragnarok. The movie introduces Asgardian goddess queen Hela who is rule of the realm of the dead. In the original Infinity Gauntlet story back in 1991, Thanos assembled the Infinity Gems to wipe out half the universe for his beloved Death. We can assume the same will happen in the Infinity War when Thanos assembles the Infinity Gems to wipe out the universe for his beloved Hela. The synopsis for Ragnarok involves Thor losing his hammer and is pitted against the Hulk in a gladiatorial fight before he returns to Asgard to stop Ragnarok which is the destruction of Asgardian civilization at the hands of Hela.
