Happy Valentine’s Day to all our readers and would-be romanticists madly infatuated with comics. The latest from the Marvel Unlimited team is that there are 3 new vertical comics sparking this lovely occasion with Avengers Unlimited, Love Unlimited Deadpool <3’s The Marvel Universe (holy… is this serious?), and Spider-Verse Unlimited.
To top it all off, each one of these specials was written by some of the best writers the Marvel team has to offer with Alex Segura covering another epic Avengers Unlimited special, along with acclaimed Deadpool original creator Fabian Nicieza doing a lovingly fun one-shot of Deadpool that breaks all the Marvel barriers in a lesson about love. But that’s not all! The Marvel Unlimited app rounds it out with a Spider-Man and Black Cat date day romance adventure. One full of delays and of course: aerial acrobatics.
Full details are below of each comic with a small spoiler-free synopsis.
AVENGERS UNLIMITED #33
Kicking-off with Spider-Woman battling the brothers grim, this story begins when Captain America calls in The Avengers over the sudden disappearance of Moon Knight. The fist of Konshu having gone missing after investigating the sudden death of one of his “Night Travelers” of his Midnight Mission (apparently, Moon Knight’s running a church of sorts).
After checking out a mysterious town over this even more mysterious murder, things go amiss as clues don’t add up to what it seems, in what’s starting off as a promising Spider-Woman and Captain America mystery. The first issue of a 4-part arc.
LOVE UNLIMITED: DEADPOOL LOVES THE MARVEL UNIVERSE #37
I think Marvel’s description of this one probably sums it best:
Finally—a story focused on the Marvel Universe’s foremost expert on romance…Deadpool. Wait, that’s not right! …but that’s what it says here… “Wade Wilson, certified love expert, teaches the world about love.” This has gotta be a mistake.
That said, this one is a pretty fantastic introduction with a short arc from the creator of the character, himself. It’s a story where Red himself meets a very pretty red head over at the villainous bar with no name, only for things to go awry.
I can’t say the context of how or why… but let’s just say… valentine’s day gets naked. A pretty funny start to what’s always been a rather funny character.
SPIDER-VERSE UNLIMITED #37
I feel like Marvel would never be the same without a story from its most hopeless romantic. In this one, we get a very fun and acrobatic race-to-the-clock storyline, as Peter tries his best to make it in time for his hot date with Felicia, AKA the Black Cat.
A very quick run through an average crime day while trying to meet his appointment, this one sees Peter battle through vulture goons and flower shop bandits, in what’s a very witty and fast-paced tale of seeing our hero try to find time for those he loves most.
