Dark Ages puts X-23’s Blade and Wolverine in Marvel’s most dangerous squad
Marvel has just introduced a new team of monster hunters to take on the supernatural threats that have gained new power through the Dark Ages.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Dark Ages # 2, available now from Marvel.
The Marvel Universe has been immersed in the Dark Age, and with this new era without light comes the rise of all that happens in the night. The heroes of the world may have saved it from utter destruction, but they couldn’t stop it from turning into a hunting ground for the monsters that have plagued it for centuries. Fortunately, there are still heroes who thrive in the dark as much as their enemies, and they know exactly how to play the hand that has been dealt to them.
With the fall of the incredibly powerful Unmaker, the world was plunged into darkness, like the same electromagnetic pulse that quelled the threat and wiped out all electricity in the universe. As the remaining heroes managed to pull humanity through the worst and rebuild themselves, the supernatural creatures that had so long been relegated to the night found themselves in an era of opportunity never seen before. The supercities that now dotted the otherwise barren landscape were well fortified, but still open to attack or infiltration, making them perfect hunting grounds for vampires and werewolves. Fortunately, these centers of life are far from helpless, especially with their own monster hunters on the watch.
When one of the many webs that Spider-Man defines as a rudimentary security system goes off Dark times # 2 of Tom Taylor, Iban Coello, Brian Reber and Joe Sabino of VC, the world’s biggest nighttime stalkers are there in no time to investigate. It’s no shock to see Blade and Elsa Bloodstone stand firm against the forces of darkness, though their teammates are at least a little more surprising. Alongside the Walker and Professional Monster Hunter are Wolverine and Scout from X-23. Their sharp senses make them perfect for sniffing out any threats that come their way, and their healing factors keep them from falling prey to the vampires and werewolves that now openly prowl, but these are the ways they have adapted. to those specific threats which are the most superb.
While preparing for the task at hand, Wolverine plunges his claws into a moving crucible, coating them in molten silver for the battle ahead, while Elsa Bloodstone helps secure two wooden stakes to Scout’s. Adamantium can cut through anything, but it doesn’t maintain Legions of the Damned in the same way as Blade and Elsa’s craft tricks.
What vampires and werewolves made of Marvel Dark times in an all-you-can-eat buffet of victims shouldn’t have been a surprise. The cosmic machines and the threat of Apocalypse had already stolen the show in the first issue of the series, so seeing supernatural creatures flourish acts as a powerful reminder of the gravity of the situation, even without great evil looming. above. At least there are still some monster hunters who can keep humanity safe at night. Hoping they can all take a break at any time in the future.
