Weekly Marvel Review: November 02, 2022 (Week 44)

The antagonists sit out the start of November. Only eight antagonists make an appearance in the first week, and half of those come from the latest X-Men: Red issue. In 13 issues, only one notable moment occurred as well. Tony Stark, the Ant-Man starring in Avengers: Forever, forms a Tony Stark support group for his multiversal counterparts who also struggle with their various depressions and addictions.

Book the Week – Savage Avengers #7 (Review score: 56 Points; 7 Characters). The Savage Avengers continue their brutal adventure into the year 2099. The action remains heavy as the seven characters average nearly five powers each, with all scoring a Defeats Antagonist.

Hero of the Week – Captain Marvel (Review score: 14 Points/3 Appearances; 4.67 Pts/App). Marvel’s top female Hero, and sixth overall, finally scores her first Hero of the Week title of 2022. Her main book sees her lead her usual compatriots and a crew of X-Men into space in response to a distress signal from Rogue. Her other two Appearances—Black Panther and Secret Invasion—have her working with her Avengers teammates.

Antagonist of the Week – Paibok (Review score: 2 Points/1 Appearance; 2.0 Pts/App). The only Antagonist to have more than one point for the week. He scores a Business point for representing the Kree/Skrull Alliance for a Galactic Council meeting. A meeting which gets interrupted by a recently-resurrected, and regularly resentful, Vulcan who returns to reclaim the Shi’ar throne.

Top Characters (by review score). Captain Marvel (14); Agent Anti-Venom, Thor (9); Black Knight/Dane Whitman, Cloak, Dagger, Daredevil/Matt Murdock, Daredevil/Elektra Natchios, Deathlok/Miles Morales, Rocket Raccoon (8)
