Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom #4
And now the pulse pounding, action packed finale to our first story arc. Today I will be reviewing Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom #4. Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
So let’s talk about the book. It’s Moloch’s army versus Solar. First Solar gets a better handle on his powers and manages to knock out Surya, the sun god. Then he focuses on the granite creatures. Meanwhile, Glow and Leviathan, Pickerel’s original creations see the battle on television and decide to help Solar. When they arrive, however, Solar leaves to meet Gail, the woman he loves. and set up a date. When he returns to the battle, his mind is cleared and all of his anxiety has disappeared. This lets him utilize all of his energy controlling powers in full. When Moloch enters the battle himself, Solar is ready for him and easily pounds all of his enemies into the ground. He banishes Moloch back to his own universe and forces Pickerel to quit writing. And that’s the book.
So let’s talk opinions. This issue continues last issue’s excellence. The story is great. The action is non-stop and intense. Solar is now using the full extent of his god like powers. Jim Shooter is back on the ball here. After a slow start, the first arc ended with a bang. A bunch of cool character intros. A nice patsy first enemy who can clearly be brought back in the future to pose a threat. An intro of a new mastermind villain. All written and drawn phenomenally. There’s even some humor being thrown in which was sorely missed from prior issues. Solar is not doing as much brooding or second guessing. His confidence is back. The story itself is solid. The technical jargon from prior issues are gone. The battles are constant and intense. Everything a great comic book should have. Let’s hope the greatness continues. That’s my opinion folks. Take it or leave it.
