Last issue didn’t end with a cliffhanger, like I thought it did. Instead, we are treated to a done-in-one issue.
The “Hills of Thoron.” A group of heroes are playing a non-copyright infringement version of Dungeons & Dragons. I wish we got a page with the in-game character with the comic character, so we know who is who. Magik is the blonde with the giant sword, so that makes sense. She’s the only one that matches but Illyana essentially is a sweet D&D character.
Rocket is the main wizard and Tony Stark is the green goblin. Tony, like the douchebag that he is, is the traitor of the group.
Since Tony doesn’t quite get the game, he turns into Giant Iron Goblin and ruins the game.
They were in a conference room the whole time. The other heroes are – Deadpool, Rocket, Thor, Magik, Tony, Beta Ray Bill, Pixie, Wanda, maybe Squirrel Girl or Ms. Marvel (she’s the only character I don’t immediately recognize), FalCap, Miles Morales Spider-Man and Groot.
Tony is still trying to defend his traitorous turn but Rocket is upset that he isn’t playing right.
They try to start another round of the game but this time, Magik is the traitor! Instead of ruining it, she’s totally awesome at it!
Magik leaves as playing with demons is much preferred to this table top game. I wouldn’t mind seeing this group of heroes hang out, without Tony being around.
Tony and Rocket get into an argument which ends with Rocket agreeing to join Tony’s Fantasy Football game.
Rocket and Groot are on their way to a planet that is an entire football field. Rocket has spent most of the day reading up on stats. Instead, they play football
The Coach, who may be the Character Find of 2016, is all about heart and he is super fun!
Rocket ends up winning the game, which makes sense. Now Tony has to play the wizard game, Rocket’s way.
The same heroes return for another game, this time, Tony is a cute little bunny.
