CURSE OF THE MAN-THING (Steve Orlando / collectif)

wHBr9h5Yenj3nk2hrCihiF

Steve Orlando débarque chez Marvel (la vague de créatifs en provenance de chez DC continue) juste à temps pour célébrer les 50 ans de Ted Sallis alias l’Homme-Chose (apparu à peu près à la même période que Swamp Thing, tous deux inspirés de the Heap).
Celui-ci va notamment croiser la route des Vengeurs (habitués à côtoyer Boy-Thing) dans une série de 3 one-shots (à la manière de « Prodigal Sun »).

Bof.

Ça, c’est déjà plus intéressant.

Tu dis ça parce que tu es un gros homophobe !

Voilà. Vous venez d’avoir un bel aperçu des dérives du net. Bonne soirée et sortez couvert si vous allez voir des péripatéticien(ne)s expérimenté(e)s.

Un anniversaire qui s’étend également aux recueils (comme pour les 60 ans des FF avec les reprints de Lee/Kirby en epic & omnibus) : un 3ème complete collection et une réédition de l’omnibus.

J’avais même pas vu qu’elle avait commencé. Kikéarrivé ?

A voir s’ils reprennent le bébé Man-Thing accroché à Blade, le machin créé pour concurrencer le Jarro de Justice League.

Orlando etait pas mal chez moore, et il etait trans, queer et bi.

C est honteux de le megenre’

Je suis pas gros.

(Bon, je mets un smiley, ou je laisse les gens gérer les non-dits comme un grand ?)

« Man-Thing’s tragic curse has finally been revealed… but it’s under new management! Years ago, Doctor Ted Sallis was ready to give up anything to crack the SO-2 serum and deliver success to his growing family. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world…he did. Today, as cities spanning from the U.S. to Krakoa are besieged by fear-driven blazes, the Man-Thing must reckon with his past deeds if he hopes to emerge renewed and rescue a world on fire. But fighting from his lowest means that Man-Thing can rise to his highest, especially with the unexpected help of the X-Men’s resident sorceress Magik and her debuting team of monstrous mutants known as The Dark Riders! Magik will lead one of the most eclectic group of mutants ever assembled, a fearsome mix of fan-favorites and obscure delights: Marrow, Forearm, Shark-Girl, Wolf Cub and Mammomax. »

« It all comes together with X-Men: Curse of the Man-Thing, and I can’t wait for you all to see it! Andrea Broccardo’s work bringing to life not just Man-Thing and his new nemesis Harrower, but Krakoa’s iconic Magik and her team of Dark Riders has been nothing short of sensational, » Orlando said. « Regrown from nearly nothing, Man-Thing has returned to celebrate his 50th anniversary with a focus and intensity like we’ve never seen. Maybe he can stop the world from burning, but the real final showdown will be between him and the supernatural zealot that hijacked his powers: Harrower. Luckily, he’ll have help in the form of Magik, intent on repaying a debt the Marvel Universe never knew was owed until now. »

Sortie en mai.

Le retour de Mammomax ! La résurrection massive de mutants nous aura décidément permis de retrouver un peu tout (et surtout n’importe quoi) chez les mutants!

Il semblerait que le scénariste n’a pas oublié les racines communes entre la sérum du super-soldat et celui qui a créé Man-Thing !
