Doctor Druid appeared in Squadron Supreme

Squadron Supreme 004

What this issue gave in mediocre art it made up for with the opposite in surprising and strange introduced story elements and characters!

Sooo, just being on Weirdworld it can become a deus ex magica "Kryptonite Environment"! Tough luck, Hype and Doc Spec. Hype probably still has a little left in him -probably TShirt Superman levels- 'cuz isn't he getting his own book? And Doc Spec will be back if the next issue cover is SPOILER and not bland poser image.

Blur thought Warrior Woman was Power Princess? Did we know this? She was catalyst for that exposition. Nighthawk is bald? Did we know this? Otherwise her and Nighthawk pretty much job - on top of being outmatched.

Zarda gets the only interesting spotlight and dangerous development/direction of the team to grab readers attention.

As for the rest of the players - they bring the (kinda "weird") surprises and strangeness...

Thundra seeeemed not portrayed well. A really bad judge of character (picker of teams). Offputtingly uses the contraction "M'NOT DONE". She is retconned with having had marital troubles; she separated from Arkon (either before or after the time around they came out of comics limbo for JLAvengers). She either gives a glossed over version of her Femizon origins or her timeline was retweaked by Owen-Franklin.

How would you describe Tyndal in his previous Weirdworld appearances? Was he this headstrong and bumbling?

Modred and Arkon, along with Zarda, are incredibly thralls controlled by the shockingly revealed Avenger: *see above post*!!! His return is explained in-story and what is explained is incredible.

Ogeode from the new (and fun) WEIRDWORLD Marvel Comic is share-connected to him which was the first time Marvel has done that with all this Weirdworld forcefeeding, AFAIK. Still don't think Black Knight or Extraordinary have been share-connected to WEIRDWORLD yet.

Crystar cast cameo. Prooobably no connection to Battleworld showings but good for fans of 70s-80s C-list titles. Speaking of which...

Talk about last page surprises: SKULL THE SLAYER!!!
