Axel-In-Charge: Extending "Secret Wars," Excitement for a "Totally Awesome Hulk"
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Since it is Day 52, I thought it only right to feature one of the most shocking moments from 52!
During the first 40 or so weeks of 52, which was written by Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison, Greg Rucka and Mark Waid, we were introduced to what essentially was the “Black Adam Family,” a counterpart to the “Marvel Family.”
Instead of Captain Marvel, we had Black Adam.
Instead of Mary Marvel, we had Isis (although here, Isis was Adam’s wife).
Instead of Captain Marvel, Jr., we had Osiris (Isis’s brother).
Instead of Talky Tawny, we had Sobek, the talking crocodile.
And so things well enough for the first 40 or so weeks, until Osiris, in a bit of “not knowing his own strength” meltdown, killed the villain Persuader. He was quite distraught, and in 52 #43 his friend, the wacky sidekick Sobek convinces him that he’d be better off just turning back to his human self and renouncing the Osiris power forever.

Well, what happens next is a bit of a shock…
That was one heck of a shock!
