Marvel Noise Episode 18

Young Avengers Presents #1This week, our host introduces a new segment (and after listening to it, wonders why) titled Marvel Tales. But before we get to that, we have the week’s new releases to through along with the Pick of the Week, and Backwards Dave brings us a Bring ‘Em Back that should interest the mutant lovers among us. Pat Loika joins us with Current Events which not only tells us what happened last week, but touches on the future of the segment.

Captain America #260Within you’ll find some rambling thoughts on The Order, The Punisher, Ultimate Fantastic Four, Messiah CompleX, Annihilation: Conquest Book 1, and Fantastic Four: The End.

Discuss this episode on the Marvel Noise forum.

Following up on the shocking conclusion of THE ORDER #6: the United States military is on high alert. Civilians are being evacuated. S.H.I.E.L.D. has been mobilized. The eyes of the entire world are on southern California and the international crisis unfolding there…and standing between it and a happy ending is Henry Hellrung, the leader of the Order. In this special issue marking the midway point of THE ORDER’s first year and revisiting several key moments in Marvel history, Henry—unproven, untested, and unaccustomed to operating on a global scale, especially when there are millions of lives on the line—finds himself alone in a room with a man that could end the world as we know it. If he wins, the Order might just have a chance to survive. If Henry fails—we’re all doomed. No pressure there, guy. By Matt Fraction (IMMORTAL IRON FIST, Casanova) and Barry Kitson (Legion of Super-Heroes, Empire).
