    I only read the Human Torch, the Angel, and the Sub-Mariner story in this one as the others didn't intrigue me in the first issue. Namor the Sub-Mariner's story is by far the best one in these.

    It's time to look at issue #2 of Marvels first ever series! As usual there are several stories told, I'm going to give my thoughts on each from worst to best. First up, The Masker Raider, yeah this was pretty boring, he goes undercover to catch some baddies and most of the story if filled with dialogue bubbles and it dragged on for too long. Overall Grade - F The Angel - This was actually quite a step down from the previous issue for me, even more things go unexplained, for instance, The Angel see It's time to look at issue #2 of Marvels first ever series!

First up, The Masker Raider, yeah this was pretty boring, he goes undercover to catch some baddies and most of the story if filled with dialogue bubbles and it dragged on for too long. Overall Grade - F The Angel - This was actually quite a step down from the previous issue for me, even more things go unexplained, for instance, The Angel seems to be a traveling hero? Its really unclear as in this story he ends up in Hong Kong. On top of that his abilities are still really unknown, and I don't really know why he dresses up, when he doesn't wear a mask most people (villains included) know who he is. The worst part is not really knowing the plot until the very end in an exposition dump. Overall - D Than we have a debut story for American Ace, it has a pretty straight forward story that seems to take place in an alternate time after WW1 about a queen getting revenge on a country that destroyed her home a plot that see was planing for two decades. Overall Grade - D+ Ka-Zar: Another average story, Ka-Zar ends up fighting with a rival jungle gang (run by apes? gorillas?). One of Zar's cubs gets kidnapped and Ka-Zar has to rescue them. Overall - D+ The Human Torch: Honestly the second best story of the issue, it seems like maybe The Human Torch is getting a better understanding of his powers. I wish I could say in that he was less gulliable but unfortunatley he still falls for some silly setups. On the (bright?) side he still either brutally murders or injures villains. Example A: Example B: But he IS trying to cooperate with the police more AND it shows him caring more about civilians. Overall Grade - C And finally the best story goes to yet again... Namor, The Sub-Mariner: Overall Grade - C+ As of right now Namors hatred is purely for "The White Man" because of the (almost) extinction of his people due to their drilling and excavations. This tale picks up right where the last left off and had some interesting implications. Is Namor slowly growing fond of the surface? Some great artwork here and it helps back that theroy up. But don't worry Namor can FUCK stuff up when he wants to, like when he gets sucked into the pipe of a submarine, trips on one of the live wires, gets pissed and starts chucking GIRDERS AT THE CREW! Most of the stories in this issue were either bland or average at best, The Torch and Namor stood out the most (again) with Namor being the clear victor.

    I think this issue was a bit better. The politics of the time show up and the visual novels are a bit more consistent. I wonder how American Ace was received at the time given that it seems/is unfinished.

    I'm finally into the stuff that's actually published under Marvel Comics group, and honestly, it already seems like the difference is night and day. These all had pretty good action and fun, paneling is (mostly) clear and I liked a lot of the art here. I'm excited to finally meet Captain America, but I think the Human Torch and Namor are definitely tiding me over! The Human Torch! Our triumphant return to the more super of Marvels early superheroes.

I'm excited to finally meet Captain America, but I think the Human Torch and Namor are definitely tiding me over! The Human Torch! Our triumphant return to the more super of Marvels early superheroes. At this point we're heroic, if not a little brutal in the punishments. Here the Human Torch takes down a mobster trying to rig rally car races. The Torch dishes out his own approved justice and murders most of the crooks with his heat that's seemingly comparable to the sun. The only person The Torch doesn't torch is the actual guy who was doing the crimes, the mob boss Blackie. He just makes that guy sign a confession after saving him. Helping people when convenient 👍 The Angel Ever the Superman-type, The Angels powers seem to be a fist that's faster than a bullet, as everytime someone tries to shoot him he punches them first. It's kinda cool I guess. Although it seems like he stalked a girl all the way to Hong Kong so he could protect one single individual. So I guess I'm saying he's bad at his job. The Sub-Mariner Continueing his war against the White Race of man, the Sub-Mariner visits New York City and almost immediately fall in love with a white girl. I definitely think Namor is a more interesting character than the comic he's in can portray, but I think I'll feel that way for awhile with these Marvels. I like that Namor is morally ambiguous, he's definitely made all the more interesting for it, short of falling in love with the enemy immediately. The Masked Raider Don't call guns "smoke poles", please. I still don't really care for westerns, but I could vaguely see a series of events that would make me like these stories. As it is its pretty whatever, just your average Wild West vigilante. He shows up, he's a quicker draw than the rest, then he wins. American Ace So this is another dogfighter story. This almost casts American Ace as being in somewhat of another reality, as they're clearly eluding to World War II, but all of the nations and leaders have changed. After peace was declared the Queen of some nation is Napoleon-ed on a small island by herself. After she breaks free of the island, she re-declares war on the allied nations, bombing cities and whatnot. This story, VERY weirdly, end on a cliffhanger after the Ace gets an air raid explosion to the face, basically. It was a weird and kinda frustrating ending, as I wasn't hating the story and, believe it or not, wanted to find out what happens. Hopefully it's not an error and I will find out next volume. Hey! I'm actually looking forward to the next issue! Ka-Zar: The Great I think I have the most fun with this Tarzan wanna-be, there aren't a bunch of other boring humans around for our ape-man to fall in love with, and this time, there were no Nazis in the jungle either. Ka-Zar in this story covets a mirror the Nazis left last issue, he goes to find it, only to see that a member of the local chimp tribe had found it. Ka-Zar fought the ape for the mirror, sparing his live. This make monkey mad, so he steals into Ka-Zars basically adopted lion brother Zars cave. He doesn't find a mirror, but steals Zars baby cubs from the cave making Ka-Zar have a huge dramatic fight, almost causing a war between lion and monkey. I liked this story as most of the dialogue was implied, I also really like that our guy knows the personal names of almost every beast in the jungle. My biggest problem here is that the paneling is so bad they literally had to number the panels to read correctly.

    Plain and simple, the only arc in this comic book even worth following is Namor the Submariner's. The writers behind him consistently mapped out where his arc was going for multiple issues at a time rather than the "inconsequential bad guy of the month" crap that plagues these other stories. THE HUMAN TORCH story has clearly established it will not continue the themes or narrative ideas set up in the first issue, so my fear that it would completely throw away what made the story great out the win Plain and simple, the only arc in this comic book even worth following is Namor the Submariner's.

THE ANGEL is just knock off Superman. Plain and simple. Skip it. NAMOR is given an interesting conflict in this issue. He falls in love with a land dweller! His motivation was to wipe out the human race because their weapons were hurting his civilization, but now he has to actually think of the human race as a person rather than as a concept; he has to put a face to what he has hated in his non-aggressive, non-militaristic, compassionate love interest. He can no longer think of the human race as a uniform thing, but as something that is nuanced and complex just like his own civilization. Interested in how this plays out. AMERICAN ACE might as well be any cookie cutter Republic Film Serial. Skip it. KAZAR is back. Still schlock. Still racist. Skip the schlocky racism. I might as well say at this point, after the first issue you should really only read the Namor stories.

    Es bastante dicotómico este número. Tiene unas series malísimas como el vaquero enmascarado, american ace, y tiene unas historias ilógicas, descabelladas y llenas de fallos argumentales como la antorcha humana, el angel y sub-mariner. Tiene obras muy buenas perfectamente trabajadas como ka-zar que es lo mejor de este número. El dibujo es excelente en ka-zar y en sub-mariner. Pero en el resto es muy malo. Quizas american ace tiene un poco de originalidad en el dibujo. Pero lo demás es bastante ma Es bastante dicotómico este número.

Se nota la molestia o apuro del dibujante. Y en el vaquero enmascarado... ni vale la pena mencionarlo. 3 estrellas. Producto regular.
