Wilson, Wade Wilson
In the eighties and nineties there was a character in Marvel who would not stop walking through practically any collection that was published and needed a sales increase. Over time we learned that his real name was James Howlett but he also answers for Logan and especially for his nom de guerre, Wolverine. That trend ended up being reversed when Deadpool began to gain popularity as big as his own ego. Well, Wolverine was also part of almost every group in Marvel, but Wade should not be reminded of that.
For all this, and because we like the foul-mouthed and cheeky character, it is not surprising that Marvel decided to include him in the most diverse line-up of The Most Powerful Heroes on Earth (Wolverine was not available either given his death) and not will do in a secondary role, nor in the shadow of others, Massacre not only knows how to get his own scenes, he will even suck camera. Taking orders is not what he does best, he prefers to jump headlong into combat and worry about the consequences later.
So everything was organized
The recent conflict that arose between mutants and inhumans, motivated by the cloud of terrifying mists, put on the table that the Unit Squad added mutants and humans with powers to an element that could create conflicts, at the same time as exemplifying that we can all collaborate for a common cause regardless of our race, making it extensible to other facets of life. That is why we have among the ranks of these Avengers Synapse, an inexperienced inhuman who complements the rest of the lineup with her psychic powers.
This consisted of the old Steve Rogers (although throughout these numbers we will see how he reappears in his usual incarnation), Rogue, Doctor Voodoo, the Human Torch (the 4F were rather dissolved at that time), Mercury, Massacre and for a very short time Spider-Man. They will share space with Cable during practically all of the numbers that are contained here, although the member of the Summers family will not acquire the status of Avenger.
The classic spirit of a good story
The whole of the volume grates at a good level in general, but the last four numbers stand out, those drawn by one of the stars of the national comic, Pepe Larraz. Gerry Duggan takes command of the header with agile and entertaining scripts, exploiting the character of Massacre well, whom he already knew previously. Duggan receives the relief that Rick Remender gave him in the last issues of the previous volume of the series to give a complete turn to the tone but without forgetting to surround the main cast of villains to be taken into account, such as Ultron, fused with Hank Pym since the graphic novel Avengers: Wrath of Ultron, also with part of the drawing by Larraz.
In the shadows, Captain America’s enemy par excellence, Red Skull, who at that time possessed the brain of Charles Xavier, remains hatching a new plan, which made him a rival of very high flights. For the remaining numbers we have Ryan Stegman (still a step below his current level at the head of Venom or in the King in Black saga) and another patriotic with supreme category, Carlos Pacheco. Both complete a volume that visually achieves an excellent grade.
Impossible Avengers begins with this volume 3 a very funny, irreverent and full of winks, which is very enjoyable even as a starting point to join the plot. A fresh start for the Avengers Unity Squad, including their participation in the Standoff event that imploded the Pleasant Hill prison project and had ramifications for virtually every collection related to Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
