Ultimate Power #4 – AT4W

Why do I feel like I could skip half of this comic and not miss anything?

About Linkara

Atop the Fourth Wall is a show about bad comic books. Linkara finds the surreal and the stupid and breaks them down page by page. You'll know why they're idiotic and how they can be improved.

Boom, Linkara IS The Entity! Called It!

Not necessarily. I previously thought he was just continuing on his path to becoming evil, and possibly becoming just like Vyce. Now, however, I suspect he may have been possessed by one of the other Old Gods. One that seems obsessed with games.

The next review is gonna be /weird/

And now I’m thinking of ”Bill Cipher”, from Gravity Falls.

*Weirdmageddon* is coming !

So Linkara is now The Entity and Lord Vyce is helping everyone else. What a twist.

I kinda hope we can move on from the Entity stuff soon.

Kind of like Thunderdome.

Careful with the Thunderdome jokes, or Linkara will shoot you in the face like Spoony tried to do with Linkara.

This comic is a prime example of “Do whatever you want BUT don’t be BORING”.
It IS a hard sit.

As for the Lore… Why a cloaked console?
Cloaking doesn’t remove it,it only hides it.
What’s to stop someone from bumping into / falling over it.
what’s to stop Linksano from finding it with his special goggles?

I would have had the console pop up from the floor but that’s me.

OR make it a holo-console that only materializes for me; no one else can touch it, much less use it.

If it’s a hologram it wouldn’t be able to do it.

OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD!!!!!!

About Mjollnir’s pronunciation: considering that Thor would have pronounced it “Myollnir”, I have a hard time understanding how Spidey would come up with all those stupid mispronunciations anyway. Unless the comic writers themselves have no idea about its Scandinavian pronunciation, which makes them look stupider than Spidey.

Shouldn’t Shadowcat be like 39 by now?

That ending: “Remember me, Eddie? When I killed your brother, I talked JUST… LIKE… THIS!”

SpeedyEric

Just shat out a brick.

Ultimate Shadowcat? No she’s the same age as the Ultimate version of Peter Parker.

TragicGuineaPig

Oh, yeah. Ultimates. Forgot.

Orastella

Yeah, Spiderman at first is reacting like he saw it written and was confused about the pronunciation, like a reader of the comic book. But then he’s obsessed with the spelling? It’s a very odd joke.

I wonder if you have a bridge setting in Comicron 2 that looks like the command deck of the Astro Megaship from Power Rangers. I’ve seen better tracing in movie based comics, and comics based on movie franchised, like Star Wars,. 9:39- I’ve read the original Ultimates storyline, and SHIELD already had a fleet of helicarriers. 11:20- I can just already tell that Avengers: Infinity War won’t have scenes of dialogue this stupid. You haven’t used that Monty Python and the Holy Grail clip and the “ENTIRELY POINTLESS” gag for a long time. 15:20- Now I’m just imagining if Superman… Read more »

So glad to see that story again. I thought he would be Mechakara. How many times has that guy died? How many times has Lord Vyce died? It’s scary to see Linkara mad. Good thing the Entity didn’t come after a less mentally stable person like the Nostalgia Critic.

Greg Land. You never cease to amaze me… and not in a good way.

Maybe I don’t recall so well but was The Entity obsessed with chess before?

Why the letters “SDD” on Comicron Two? Does that have some significance?

Le Messor

I kept reading it as San Diego Comicron.

lilith_ascennding

Called it about The Entity. I kind of figured he was either possessing or influencing Linkara. Still, all I can say now is “Hello, nightmares, my old friends. I’ve come to scream with you again.”

Le Messor
Guest

“Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains”

… is it disturbing that I didn’t have to change the lyrics to fit your version?

lilith_ascennding

Nope, not at all 🙂

Le Messor

🙂 Oh, good.

I really don’t like this style of drawing/colouring. It’s in all the Marvel comics I’ve come across as of late and it’s flat and uninteresting. I don’t know if it’s considered an in-house style (like, if everyone has to be on the same page/style manual re production values) or if it’s quicker and cheaper to produce, but it downright doesn’t help make storylines interesting.

Blue Chullo
Guest

Also Pollo, your gun positioning dude. It’s, um, on purpose?

Talvrae
Guest

Nah not all of Marvel is in that style and coloring… for example Spider Gwen recent série is nothing like that… or all new wolverine is also on a different style

Was the opening sequence meant to be a homage to “Star Trek – The Motion Picture”? That long tracking shot of Comicron 2 was so reminiscent of the NCC-1701 pulling out of Spacedock in that movie. It would also sort of fit with a probe with unexpected powers causing disaster on Earth.

Le Messor
Guest

I kind of assumed it was.
Just… a lot quicker. (In keeping with the ‘get on with it!’ theme of this episode. :))

Could not help but chuckles at Poolyo “canon”

The card at the beginning kind of makes me sad; all those whingers hating on your storyline. On the other hand, if I was going to use it (which I’m not), it wouldn’t work for me with VidMe anyway; I don’t get a time code popping up when I use the slider. Am I the only one? (I do get one with YouTube. I’m on Firefox.) Comicron Two looks Great! (But I couldn’t read the quote on the dedication plaque.) “How do you screw up continuity from one issue to the next…?” “Unlike this, I can still remember what happened… Read more »

Thanks for that note at the beginning.

Heh… I’m not sure which scenario I would have preferred ? ‘This’ or ‘Linkara becoming the next Vice’ ? Honestly, I was more prepared for the later.
