This Week in Comics — 2011/01/12

Heroes for Hire #2”

Someone is selling new hardware on the street. Heroes for Hire have been hired to discover who and what. What they find are demonically-possessed weapons that bond to their wielders. The bullets the guns shoot cause supernatural wounds but the guns themselves wound the wielder to the point of consuming their souls. It takes some supernatural assistance for the Heroes (in the form of Satana the succubus and Ghost Rider) to end the threat.

But the real interest is in who appears in the last panel. Someone thought dead from suiciding with a basement full of explosives. Someone who is one of the oldest mind controllers in the Marvel universe. Someone who is pulling the strings of the Heroes for Hire behind everyone’s back.

The Puppet Master. 

Which just goes to show that no matter how they die in the comics, villains will always come back if the author or editor wants them to return.

    Phillip Masters was last seen in Ms. Marvel Vol2 #20 as far as I knew, but the GCD lists he was in HfH#1 and Deadpool Team-Up #890.

      Yeah, the last I saw him was in Ms. Marvel, where he blew up the mansion he was in to keep from being captured. I guess he must have had an escape plan even then. And I checked and he is Heroes for Hire #1, just that I didn’t get that issue until after I read issue #2.

  • Hi,
    I just found your site and I wanted to say great job. It’s cool to be able to see all the different references made about hypnosis. I look forward to reading more of your post in the future.
