Last issue didn’t necessarily convince me that this was the Jupiter’s Legacy story I needed to read; however, after reading this issue, I believe in Mark Millar. This was a perfectly crafted story by double M (Mark Millar).
In this issue we get to see Chloe and her son, Jason, do battle against Raikou as Hutch works to release Repo. The majority of this issue is dedicated to the battle between Raikou and Team Chloe, and that’s ok with me because we get to see some great art by Frank Quitely, which was colored masterfully by Sunny Gho.
During the battle, we get some awesome action sequences as we see Raikou’s power-sets featured. By the end of the battle, it’s not hard to figure out who is Raikou’s father.
This issue had a bit more laughs in it than the last one, and that’s the joy of reading a Millar book – you never know what to expect when you turn the page.
This issue ends with a BOOM (literally) whenever a crazed Baptist tries to assassinate U.S. President Brandon by setting off a nuclear bomb at one of his speaking engagements. It seems like the failed assassination, wrongly blamed on China by Brandon, triggers Hutch’s father to continue his fight against way-ward superheroes like Brandon.
ROTTING BRAINS gives Jupiter’s Legacy Vol. 2 #2…drum roll…4 out of 5 rotten brains.
