The Incredible Hercules (2008) #138

Incredible hercules 138 2010

So Hercules isn’t just a moron, he’s got a weird little Asian sidekick who’s super-smart? I mean, what would Wertham have to say about their creepy little relationship? Actually, it’s not creepy. It’s just dumb. But since the Assault on New Olympus prologue killed off so many brain cells, this issue doesn’t seem as bad. It’s a terrible, terrible Marvel superhero comic. But it’s not like Cable or something. It’s not Deadpool.

The Asian sidekick, Amadeus Cho, reads like a sidekick from an eighties television show. Like if “Automan” had a little kid sidekick. Oh, wait, he’s Short Round.

There’s some fighting, some jokes, some Christian propaganda.

The only reason to read it is the Agents of Atlas backup, which is a lot better than last time.

Parker’s got better pacing this time and he’s got the team together (Venus brainwashed was trouble). He pulls the recovery off well.
