Loved this issue! Dante and his sister Gabriela are introduced to the Kingdom of Attilan (or what remains of it) and Dante’s powers go a little haywire (again), but thats what he’s here for, to learn the ropes. Lucky, he’s got Gorgon to knock the lessons into his skull (literally). Captian America shows up to Attilan (it is now located in the harbors just in view of the Statue of Liberty, It is a sovereign nation though, only allegiances it owes are the promises Queen Medusa makes) and you gotta love good old Cap. Total respect but at the same time firm, tells Medusa that things are changing and he’d like to help if he can (what a swell guy). When a piece of Attilan is located and under siege by AIM, Captian America offers his help because Attilan and America are neighbors now and thats what good neighbors do. Butt kicking ensues. A mysterious man, a new Inhuman (Nuhuman as Medusa now refers to them) shows up to speak to Medusa, saying she’s doing all the wrong things (He claims to know a lot but he seems crafty. Don’t like him).
The art was fantastic in this issue. Always love Joe Madureira’s manga-inspired art. Epic art for a new epic series. More than that, I really enjoy Dante as a character. A nice guy thrust into a new, fantastic world and he’s not so sure that’s where he wants to be (his sister sure doesn’t want to be there). Gorgon lets him know that while he is changed forever, he is handling it better than most. Get a real glimpse of the difficulties facing Medusa and her kingdom. This is her family and it literally has fallen apart around her. She’s not too sure about accepting help from Captain America because the Inhumans have always stood apart, avoiding too many entanglements with the countries of the Earth, but that may change. She loses one of her people sent to retrieve a piece of Attilan but in her eyes, her soldier died finding and protecting a piece of their kingdom, and home. A noble sacrifice. Love Captain America. Not only is he a great soldier and strategist, but he’s a good-old boy at heart. He wants to be helpful, he knows this is a big change to the people and wants to help out anyway he can.
Still want an issue with a huge battle between super powered folks. I’m sure it’s on the way.
