IMJ Nation™ member Helmir posed a question on the IMJ Open Thread earlier this week, “So who’s the poor unlucky bastard that has to review Green Team #1?

Well, of course, that unlucky bastard would be me… And I can’t blame anyone but myself– seeing as I volunteered to do it.

I mainly chose the comic because I’d reviewed its sibling title, The Movement #1– and I figured I might as well see if there was anything worthy in this much hyped pairing of titles. (The other reason I picked it– Ian wouldn’t let me review Daredevil #26, no matter how much I pleaded!)

The basic idea of this mess is blindingly obvious from the name of the book: It’s a group of rich kids

Iron Man #9Iron Man #9
The Secret Origin of Tony Stark – Prologue
Writer: Kieron Gillen
Artist: Dale Eaglesham
Colorist: Guru eFX
Letterer: VC’s Joe Caramagna
20 pages, $3.99

Iron Man #9 was a less than average comic. Kieron Gillen’s story is slow and inconsequential… And the cliff-hanger isn’t much of a cliff-hanger. (I’ve heard great things about Gillen’s work, but I have yet to see any of it. Free free to point me toward something great, if such a comic exists.)

Dale Eaglesham’s art had a futuristic vibe, which works well with Iron Man… Especially when Tony Stark’s in space. But the simple plot of Iron Man hiring a mercenary and being tricked by 451 (a Brainiac type character) is contrived and unoriginal. That’s about all I have to say about the actual comic… Other than it’s a damn sorry waste of my $3.99. It wasn’t completely terrible, but it was definitely far from good.

Since I’m left with…

Debra Wheeler seems like any other high school reject: at fifteen, she’s more into roller skating than boys, and Mom plays favorites with big sister Gennifer, the homecoming princess. With little to love in ultra-rural Bedrock, Indiana, Deb’s counting down the days until she can skate away to join the roller derby.

When Gennifer is kidnapped, Mom’s breakdown forces Deb to take charge. With no clue where to start and thugs on her tail, she turns to the only adult who has ever helped her out in a jam: Coach, the owner of the skating rink. So what if he has tusks and might be a troll? Coach gives her a pair of magical skates and sends her off into a world that reveals a magical, if somewhat sinister, nature. Deb soon discovers that beneath the “glamours” of everyday life flit a million fantastical stories–and…

NewscasterEver watch that horrible HBO show The Newsroom?

If you have, then you know how catty everyone is to each other.

TV Reporters and much lower paid Camera People often don’t get along– mainly because the Reporter is the “STAR” and the Camera Person is a “lowly grunt”.

Yet, when the local Television Reporters line up a live shot, they often rely on the SAME CAMERA PEOPLE to tell them if they’ve picked a photogenic spot to broadcast from.

I don’t know this Reporter. I don’t know this Camera Person.
(So I’m not casting aspersions on either of them.)

But I refuse to believe this is an accident.
