MarvelBlog REVIEW: Avengers Forever #6
It has been one of our favorite series of the past couple of years, and it has once again embraced its creative limitless; this is our review of Avengers Forever #6.
With every passing year of comic book content, there seems to be less and less doubt that Jason Aaron deserves to be among the most respected living writers.
There are so few writers in this industry who are as consistent in their storytelling and commitment to the narrative as Aaron’s is, and his newest series is just the proof needed to justify his position.
Avengers Forever has been, at the very least, a consistently interesting series that takes readers down a multiversal rabbit hole previously unknown to the Marvel Universe.
At best, this is a creative endeavor that has truly been a bright spot for Marvel comics; establishing a multiversal universe that feels both tremendously new, and a perfectly embodied variant reality.
The first five issues have been a delightful experience of sheer creative discovery, but Avengers Forever #6 seems to take that to a new level.
This issue feels like it just created a hero destined for a future beyond this brand-new series.
There is something about The Vibranium Man in this new issue that makes him feel both tremendously new and exciting like he has seemingly always been destined to have a presence.
A character birthed from a classic comic book origin shared over generations of the medium, this character feels like the best parts of heroes like Black Panther, Iron Man, and Spider-Man all rolled into one.
But perhaps what this new issue does above all is balance out the power levels of the series, and present a hero that is ever worthy of the terrifying Doctor Doom presence in the previous issue.
Vibranium Man deserves a place on our favorite new characters of this year, and Jason Aaron has seemingly done it again and crafted something that feels memorably classic.
