Invisible Woman #1 Review
In the Marvel Universe you’ll either die a hero or live long enough to become a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. Invisible Woman has done all of these things. Many people don’t know that and it’s a damn shame. Sue Storm is an integral part of the Fantastic Four, and has awesome invisibility powers with force fields. Through all of this she somehow finds time to be a loving mother and an incredibly patient wife to one very distracted Reed Richards. Super Mom is a more appropriate title but notably less cool than the Invisible Woman.
It took 58 years for Invisible Woman to get her own book, it’s kind of sad, but at least Sue is finally getting her dues. So there’s some pressure on Mark Waid and Mattia De Iulis to tackle this multifaceted heroine but, after reading issue one, I’d say they know just what they’re doing. I doubt Waid was feeling the pressure though however, he’s written his fair share of Fantastic Four books and also had a short but amazing 6 issue run of Black Widow with Chris Samnee.
Invisible Woman #1 is a fitting beginning for the woman of many talents. Sue has a big heart, a weakness for any hero who’s supposed to be working in the area of espionage. Luckily, Waid has a few surprises up his sleeve to help her on that front. If you’re like me, an appearance at the end of issue one will have you grinning from ear to ear.
If the story and sharp interior art doesn’t sell you enough, you’ll want to pick up each issue on the current Adam Hughes covers alone.
