REVIEW: Seasonal Fun in the Mighty Marvel Holiday Special
In The Mighty Marvel Holiday Special by Ryan North, Nathan Stockman, Chris O’Halloran, and Joe Sabino, we get a story that plays all the holiday season’s greatest hits in one beautiful package. It would be a shame to peek and ruin the experience of enjoying this holiday surprise for yourself!
The Mighty Marvel Holiday Special
The Mighty Marvel Holiday Special has three parts. The first is the most conventional, and it effectively lulls you into a false sense of security. Don’t get me wrong, this segment, which features a holiday celebration being held by Professor X in order to improve human-mutant relations, has plenty of great gags.
One of my favorites was the fact that Nightcrawler is using his mutant abilities in order to teleport people to and from the North Pole!
And I appreciated the inclusion of several Hanukkah traditions, like the icy dreidel made by Iceman and the sweater worn by Kitty Pryde.
But while you may think this is the entire story, it soon gives way to another story, about how grumpy Logan is during the holidays. As you may recall, Wolverine’s regenerative abilities mean he has a very long life, and he’s already experienced many, many holidays.
However, the third part of this story goes in an entirely new direction once again, and features a cameo by a character with very deep ties to Wolverine’s continuity. This story was a lovely holiday surprise that made me laugh and even shed a tear.
