REVIEW: Death of Doctor Strange: White Fox #1
In The Death of Doctor Strange: White Fox #1 by Alyssa Wong, Andie Tong, Luciano Vecchio, Arif Prianto, and Travis Lanham, with a main cover by Rico, we see a story that features Kumiho, or “mystical shape-shifting fox spirits.” Intrigued, Marvel Blog True Believers? Well, rest assured that this issue about the White Fox delivers on the potential of this interesting foundation!
Death of Doctor Strange: White Fox
As we are informed by the recap page, White Fox is also known as Ami Han, and she’s descended from the Kumiho. She’s a member of Tiger Division, a team that is part of the Agents of Atlas. This team also includes “Auntie Ante,” a gambler sorceress who immediately became one of my new favorite characters thanks to her incredible name and her awesome-looking powers.
Just like all the other superheroes on Earth-616, the Agents of Atlas are dealing with loads of problems in the wake of Doctor Strange’s death, like the streets of Seoul being filled with an extra-dimensional threat.
In this issue, we also get to see more of Pearl Pangan, A.K.A. Wave. This character previously appeared in “Personal Heroes,” a story written by Wong that appeared in the anthology Marvel’s Voices: Identity #1, and it’s nice to see her return once again!
Plus, the leader of the Agents of Atlas is Jimmy Woo. Not only did he also get a story in Marvel’s Voices: Identity #1, but we all want more Woo thanks to Randall Park’s show-stopping appearance in the role on WandaVision. Frankly, this issue demonstrates that he could be leading a whole superhero team, so maybe we’ll eventually get to see Agents of Atlas on Disney+! Between White Fox, Auntie Ante, and Wave, there are plenty of heroes we’d love to see under Woo’s command on-screen.
The Last Kumiho
In addition to telling an interesting story about a hero who I was not very familiar with (but who I immediately want to learn more about), this issue featured some incredible art and a very good (but very sad) ending.
