I finally picked up the second issue of All-New Invaders and it was good, things certainly picked up from issue #1
There’s lots to talk about on the Invaders blog, but on this Toro blog there is exactly one thing I want to talk about:
“A new destiny for Toro” – so teases Mark Paniccia in the letter’s column
Ok Toro fans, so what do we think this is going to be? Any guesses?
Anyone really worried?
Personally, I’m somewhere stuck between “Yay! Change! How exciting”, and “AHH! Change! Fire is bad! Kill Prometheus!” Probably because Marvel as had some very cool character updates and some very bad ones, so when I hear my favorite Marvel character is going to get a new Destiny, it’s hard not to worry a bit.
Or a lot.
I suspect a power change at the very least given there have been confirmed mentions of the writer and IIRC the editor commenting on Toro’s power being too much like Jim’s. Which while interesting, would also be bittersweet because I like the connection between Jim and Toro via their powers, but if he gets written about more … It would be worth it as I don’t think his powers define the character.
I think I already mentioned I’d assumed the worst case scenario and that Toro would be the one to die so everyone can angst. Now seeing that, I’m more confident he’ll live but . . I guess me new worst case scenario is he’s going to be turned into a Kree. LOL
So! Three more issues until convention panel rumor says Toro will appear!
That day, I will probably be explaining to work that I am late because I had to go to a comic store first thing Wed. morning LOL.
