    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.

    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 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 window has now been realized. 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.

    The Human Torch is my favourite, but I'm also really enjoying the Adventures of Ka-far the Great
