It’s been a disappointing few issues of minor bloodshed here at Irredeemable. I think our friendly neighborhood Plutonian psychopath has only killed a couple dozen. But we’re upping the body count considerably with the release of an ultimate weapon that will kill up to a third of the planet. Say goodbye to India I guess.
This month’s issue seems to give a nod to Warren Ellis’ “Supergod”, where the superheroes were so powerful that some of them could kill if you happened to walk around their vicinity. You might remember those scary giant ethereal hands that we saw last issue. Well, kneel before your new terrifying gods that have played a significant role in the Plutonian’s life (Yes, spoiler alert.) They were somehow created by the Chinese. How nationalistic of them. Don’t they know that the Superman is real and he’s American? And slightly insane?
Yes they can part the sea. They’re very very powerful.
Shocker 2: Well luckily there is one being that could save us and still go toe to toe with the Plutonian. That guy is Cary. In fact, all he has to do is kill his remaining brother to become the God that this world deserves or so he says. That world could certainly use a better Supergod. That was the plan until this happened.
Good plan Gilgamesh except that plan probably won’t work. Now nothing can stop the Plutonian, except maybe low sales. I just think Cary got a raw deal here. Yes he might have killed somebody to gain the power. But what would you do to save the world? It wasn’t just some random murder. He would have killed his brother in order to save the world. That’s a deal that you have to make. Just like you if have to murder some artists and psychics and 3 million people in New York to save the world then you do it. I guess everybody in this world is Rorshack.
Shocker 3: Modeus is back. Where oh where is Qubit? Someone has to use the World’s Smartest man’s intellect to save the Plutonian yet again. Or Something.
Shocker 4: Well, let’s hear from the proud parents themselves:
Okay I know they’re Gods with energy orbs for heads but who is the mom and who is the dad here? I’m confused.
Final shocking verdict: 4 stars out of 5. Just how many horrific and terrible places can this series take me? I definitely want to find out…
