I know Loki is a woman now... but I did forget for a moment there when I read your post.

Just finished reading the Criminal: Bad Night trade. Brubaker and Phillips weaved together such a dark and multi-levelled thread. You have a general idea where the plot is moving but that's all you have. What happens as you progress through is that more and more layers are added to the characters and conflicts and at the very end of it, the whole book explodes in so many levels.

Brilliant and definitely one of the reads of the year for me. A pity this was this last volume of Criminal. Bru and Phillips make a great team. It's also a pity that there aren't more comics of this nature. You've either got the superheroes or the gratutious T&A or the gratuitious horror/violence which is pretty sad as Criminal reminds you how unique a medium comics is.

Maybe the Devil did it? (Seriously as a side effect of Brand New Day)

Norman's always denied, denied, denied it. I remember it being a plot point in "The Pulse" and the Mark Millar "Spider-Man" series.

But Norman doesn't deny his past, he's actually admitted to it and claimed that he was sick and that he's now better.

Evidenced in that he was put in charge of the T-Bolts and now H.A.M.M.E.R. He's the poster boy for redemption! He's also the guy who blew the brains out of the Skrull Queen.

You know ... Skrull Queen ... leader of the invading alien horde. Yeah, that's gonna give you some pretty big prestige points with the general public who were suffering at the hands of the Skrulls.

Plus he was able to pin the invasion on Tony Stark, you know, the guy who also forced the public through a nasty super-hero Civil War and then there was his involvement in what the Hulk did in New York.

Love him or hate him, I think they've done a pretty good job of building up Norman. Not just by "redeeming" him through the T-Bolts, but by making the general public (in the comics) suffer from mistakes caused by the super-heroes themselves.

But if you're sick of Norman, take a trip into space. War of Kings is just as good as Annihilation and Annihilation:Conquest. And if that doesn't tickle your fancy, well DC's doing that little thing called "Blackest Night".
