Spider-Man meets resurrected Gwen Stacy in Marvel’s wild Avengers event

You probably know that the big Marvel Comics events at the moment are Avengers, X-Men, and Eternals accidentally created a god with the power to destroy all life on Earth, and the duty to do so if humanity is not judged favorably enough. “You will be judged on an individual basis. You will be judged as a team,” said Progenitor Celestial. Last week, it come to Hawkeye in the form of a Black Widow, and this week its roving eye finally went to our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

And naturally, that’s Gwen Stacy’s form, his worst failure. So, how is the unlucky, flawed, eternally struggling Peter Parker judged?

What else is happening in the pages of our favorite comics? We will let you know. Welcome to Funnies Monday, Polygon’s weekly list of the books our comics editors loved over the past week. There are social pages about the lives of superheroes, a reading of recommendations, a “look at this interesting piece of work”. There may be some damage. There may not be enough context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the final edition, read this.)

The Progenitor not only pardoned Peter, but also gave him a gift: one last conversation with the temporarily resurrected Gwen. A few years ago, I thought this would make me an old hat, but in our modern day, Gwen is her own. World famous spider man in movies and comics (not to mention Her own Deadpool). Peter even knows Spider-Gwen! He mentors her!

It kept Gwen Stacy’s old-school tragedy alive and meaningful, without removing a female character from the mythology, which freed me up to enjoy the scene in a comic-book-like high-profile dramatic moment. .

The issue also has a cool button, revealing that Gwen’s killer Norman Osborn – currently trying to go straight and not kill people all the time – is also reviewed by Gwen Stacy Progenitor.

Lois Lane and Superman discuss the changes in their lives after he returned from space with two young Kryptonian babies, while hovering over Metropolis in a beautifully rendered sunset in Action Comics # 1047 (2022).

By Phillip Kennedy Johnson Action Comics was ambitious from the beginning, and I’m still not sure if it all worked out. But I can tell you this: Riccardo Federici – with colorist Lee Loughridge – paints Hell out of it. The old story of Superman and Lois Lane chatting heartily while hovering in the air with ease only improved when he gave up his secret identity and was able to do it in sweatpants.

Thor explains that he needs Loki to help rebuild the icy bridge to Asgard.

As a bisexual pun, I have to reluctantly accept that this one is pretty cool, that’s how all the best puns should be accepted.

Not one but two The characters of Gotham City start living in big boats this week, and who does better is the bouncer. On the one hand, Tim Drake’s boat has a cross section, and I like a cross section…

…but on the other hand, those who follow the weird New York City news will recognize the joke here: Harley bought Staten Island Ferry has been shut down under Pete Davidson. She deserves it.
