“I want Firestorm! Unfortunately since she doesn’t seem to have an 800-number to call her to action I have to create a situation that will draw her out of hiding!”
Dr. Polaris really needs to get his stress under control, he’s just been so different since the accident, you know?
This week’s The New 52: Futures End #37 gives us more action alongside a bit of humor as the release date of the uSphere draws ever closer (I want one!). Among one of the bigger story lines as of late is the introduction of Dr. Polaris, which this issue touches on – the quote above is from Polaris. He’s convinced the Justice League interfered with his attempts in creating a teleportation device, and since half of Firestorm was his lab assistant (Jason) he’s venting the majority of his anger onto the hero with multiple personalities.
Writer Brian Azzarello along with Jeff Lemire, Dan Jurgens, and Keith Giffen also use this issue to remind us that the uSphere is coming, and it’s not going to be pretty – the Batman/Joker abomination is a constant reminder of this. This week we’re also given another look at what Terry McGinnis has been up to lately…uhhh…wait a minute…what were they doing on the roof? Hmm…
On the artwork side of this week’s issue is penciller Aaron Lopresti along with inkers Art Thibert, Dan Green, and Wayne Faucher, with colors being done by Hi-Fi. In one of the more comical scenes in this issue we see Fifty-Sue once again flaunting her abilities with negative impact to those around her. Remember the safe she brought back with her? Well she brought it back to show everyone else she found it, and they’re all standing on top of a skyscraper – cue the “Awesome!” scene. After the safe destroys a good portion of the building in its descent its the top panel of the next page that really shows a turnaround for Fifty-Sue’s character – she looks like an actual kid for once, just having a good time, destroying things, you know, doing regular kid stuff. Unfortunately for her everyone else doesn’t agree with her antics…
This week brought us around from story to story again and offered enough glimpses to keep us up to date on the latest happenings. Is anyone else worried about Frankenstein?
