Episode three of Misfits series two combines a strange A plot with revelations that will shape the rest of this series of the show.
The main story focuses around Nathan, Simon and Kelly as they encounter another super-powered individual. Kelly’s tattoo artist Vince has the ability to make his tattoos become real. After being mocked by Nathan, he makes a heart with Simon’s name in it that forces Nathan in to love with Simon. He later does the same to Kelly and even tries to kill Curtis with a knife to the gut.
Meanwhile Alisha finally learns the identity of Superhoodie in a story that brings time travel in to the Misfits tale. She quickly grows closer to Superhoodie, even though it means lying to the other members of the gang.
Curtis spends most of the episode meandering around the new character Nikki, the same woman he saw in the future and at the end of last episode. He does eventually get his act together enough to help confront Vince, but gets taken down by the previously mentioned knife tattoo.
Ultimately it comes down to Simon to save the day, as his progression continues on this season.
We’re behind on the show so Thursday brings more Misfits action!
Over at the Examiner, I have another Marvel Month review this time focused on Spider-Woman: Origin by the writing team of Brian Michael Bendis and Brian Reed and drawn by the Luna brothers. Though originally released half a decade ago, the tale does an interesting job of cleaning up and re-creating the convoluted origin of Spider-Woman for modern comics.
Anyone that read the original run of Spider-Woman knows that Spider-Woman’s origin was an absolute mess and this series does an attempt to try to clear it up. It’s not perfect, but the gorgeous art by the Lunas does a lot to cover the weaknesses left by the writing team.
