Marvel crossover vs. Kingpin vs. Luke Cage in New York mayoral election

When the comic is big cross book event around, heroes often have to come up with a cunning plan to save the day. Usually, that plan involves punching, or magic, or dimensional jumping, or at least a one-of-a-kind scientific device. So in Demon’s Kingdom, the Marvel crossover is now turning out of Daredevil from Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchetto, the plan is Actually freak.

The Kingpinthe vile evil plot of Demon’s Kingdom is a tried and true: Use his power as an elected representative to criminalize any superhero he doesn’t like. And so far his duties have been supported by New Yorkers, so removing a duly elected mayor by force of superpowers is a no-brainer. But after a recording of Luke Cage speaking out against Fisk went viral,…

Our heroes have a cunning plan to run Luke Cage as an opposition candidate against incumbent Wilson Fisk in the upcoming election for mayor of New York City.

What else is happening in the pages of our favorite comics? We will let you know. Welcome to Funnies Monday, Polygon’s weekly list of the books our comics editors loved over the past week. It’s the social pages of superheroes’ lives, the reading recommendations section, the “look at this interesting piece of art.” There may be some damage. There may not be enough context. But there will be great comics. (And if you missed the final edition, read this.)


Luke Cage, Captain America/Steve Rogers, and Daredevil/Matt Murdock gently explain to Tony Stack that Luke is a more deserving candidate for mayor of New York City than he is in Devil's Reign #2 (2021).

I think the most interesting thing about this is that the group of characters discussing the plan has quite a lot of correct rights commoner expertise to get this done. Luke has personality and public charisma, Daredevil is a lawyer, Iron Man has a bank account, and Captain America is a celebrity endorsement.

Huntress revolves around a view of a woman from the perspective of her attacker, and then rushes to save her in Dectective Comics #1046 (2021).

I find myself more interested in Mariko Tamaki Comic detective story than anything else in today’s stable core Batman. Now, as she’s gearing up for the massive turn of the 12-part weekly series, the web of supporting characters she’s weaving is becoming apparent. In the case of Helena Bertinelli / The Huntress, this whole thing “has real-time vision from behind the eyes of killers as they strike their victims somewhere in Gotham” is a close addition here for the character, but fun, cool and appropriate. I hope it sticks around.

Kang the Conqueror views a kaleidoscope of images that hint at upcoming events in Marvel Comics in Timeless #1 (2021).

The last page reveals about Timeless is that Marvel will continue influential work created by Alan Moore in the 1980s, but the issue provides this double-page spread with hints of upcoming plots. Let’s see… from left to right, looks like a new Young Avengers, Ben Reilly / Spider-Man move to Hollywood, something about the new Thunderbolts, New Punisher series, the content about the moon and the future is probably something X-Men related, we should worry about Bucky killing Captain America, the women taking on the roles of Spider-Man (possibly Mary Jane) and Black Panther, and the commentators. feel free to tell me who the “new god” and “the once thought lost heart” are related to.

Black Adam and Superman joke about the stolen Fortress of Loneliness in Justice League #70 (2021).

I’m a bit sleepy on Brian Michael Bendis’ Alliance justice, but I admit that this week’s issue, the first in its arc, really captivated me. It’s a heist story about the Royal Flush Gang (of everyone) stealing the Lonely Fortress.

“Even if we won today,” said a bruised and topless Superman, “in the end the Warzoons had to free themselves. [...] We will help them get their freedom,” in Action Comics #1038 (2021).

People say the perennial problem with Superman is finding him a challenge he can’t even try to solve – in fact, comic book writers do this all the time. But I appreciate Phillip Kennedy Johnson’s twist on his Warworld installment. Superman cannot free a people who have been manipulated to see their bondage as strength by wearing their leader’s head. Instead, he’ll have to rely on his most mundane skill: being an inspiration.
