Chapter two of Jen Walters journey is in the books. Oliver rampages on a bridge with the full force of the NYPD ready to get to clappin. In order to calm Oliver down, Jen steps in to confront him which leads to a fight. Oliver wants it all to end, dude wants to go out via suicide by Hulk smash. The most interesting portions of this issue are when Walters breaks down Marry Shelly’s Frankenstein story throughout the narration. Gaston and Lopez’s art baton pass occurs midway in the book. We see a more realistic, true-to-life depiction of Jen’s transformation then a more animated-looking iteration.
I’m glad to see this arc ending with a set up for the next chapter. It’s looking like the next adversary will be more grounded in Jen Walters’ personal life. I’m personally more interested in Walters new internal struggle as opposed to her helping others through what she has gone through.
