PREVIEW: Supreme #67
From the pages of INVINCIBLE comes the most requested Supreme opponent of all time. Enter: Omni-Man! Supreme is out of control! Suprema is at death's door and Ethan Crane is in a bad way. Can even Omni-Man hope to save the day?
Full preview here.
Interesting to see where this is going in light of the fact that there is only one more issue left.
* Omni-Man seems like an equal in power with Jerk Supreme, which is good because it at least gives us hope that Jerk Supreme can be defeated.
*Darius Duck also seems resigned to a situation in which he has nothing to lose by helping the unpowered Supremes, and I can't help thinking that New Supreme still might find a way to get at least HIS powers back.
*Adding another new alien character at this point seems an unusual choice in light of only one issue left, but I hope it is either a positive addition to the plot, or just a slight distraction in bringing this all to a conclusion.
*My concern, like many, is that if #68 is going to be just a normal sized issue -- there will be a lot of ground to cover in rushing to a conclusion - like using Omni-Man (who seems at this point eager to find Jerk Supreme), dealing with the Alien, getting rid of (or depowering) Jerk Supreme, giving New Supreme, and maybe the other Supremes, his/their powers back, all by the last page. Let's see if #68 can deliver. (If Mouse Supreme and Duck Darius stick around after all of this, without any powers, they could TOTALLY work at Walt Disney World dressed up as Mickey Mouse and maybe a dark-feathered Donald Duck and patrons would be none the wiser....
