The last two Cosmic stories each had a big surprise reveal that really amped the momentum of the storyline, while WoK is a pretty basic story with no big surprises as of yet, I'm almost thinking the 'aftershocks' of this storyline is what will make it all worthwhile because right now it's just sort of 'meh' for me. There's still hope for the next two issues, i even have a few crazy ideas.
-Doom 2099 shows up to take over space. (CRAZY I know, I thought this up months ago when an issue of GotG had an alien oracle mention a future doom coming, crazy, but I like it)
-Vulcan ends up with the Pheonix Force (Rachel losing it made me first think it was because Jean Grey was returning, but hey, maybe it found a new and evil host)
-Inhumans take over the Negative Zone
-Maximus ends up the King of everything
WoK is still well done, it just doesn't have all the big crazy moments I was kind of expecting.
Really, all i hope for in the end is that Havok and crew either get a regular series as the Starjammers or most of them all join up with Guardians of the Galaxy.
I agree, it's the lacking of a big reveal.. or a surprise twist. Don't get me wrong, I'm enjoying WOK as much as the regular books it involves, but it's not an Annihilation level event with the FATE of the Universe in the balance. It's the fate of the Kree and the Shiar futures, yes, but that's just a story. A good one, but far from a blockbuster event.
And I am enjoying this more than the traditional Marvel 'Events' like CW, HoM, or SI proper.
