Not a satisfying series at all. Mostly due to logic concerns [and of course Beast's hideous appearance]. Lockheed with a self applied splint? Comical but... sheesh! However, this issue (thankfully) wraps up the arc and series (http://www.hypergeek.ca/2010/01/kieron-gillens-s-w-o-r-d-series-cancelled-with-issue-5.html) well enough...

S.W.O.R.D. #5
http://marvel.com/news/comicstories.11546.preview~colon~_s~dot~w~dot~o~dot~r~dot~d~dot~_%235

As far as poser covers go this one was pretty good. Plus its neat that Canada got a mention. Too bad they didnt mention the name of that emo girl behind Bill in the pink and black top firing handblasts. Plus this title reminds us that there still A LOT of aliens, like Bill, on Earth with potential plotlines waiting to be told - maybe 'horse-face' can team up with that 'spider-woman' in her SWORD series. He might look cool in a motion comic.

Anyways, the main reason for this post:


Who is Beta Ray Bill's girlfreind??





I miss my brother.

Did you read or plan to read the Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter series, because his girlfriend is introduced(briefly) in it.   If you plan on reading it *do not* highlight the following-
The Short Answer- a female Korbinite brought back to life by Galactus for Bill. 

The Long Answer- In the Beta Ray Bill: Godhunter series Bill goes after Galactus for killing his people.  In his effort to kill Galactus, Bill successfully keeps him from feeding which greatly weakens Galactus.  But Bill then  learns that if Galactus dies the energy discharge from his death  would destroy all life within 42 light-years(and they were in a densly populated area).  Bill therefore decides to let Galactus feed, and even defends Galactus against an alien race that tried to kill him while he was thus weakened.  In reward for this and also because he knows what it is to be alone, Galactus takes one of the trapped spirits of his people and brings forth a female Korbinite.  This female comes back to earth with Bill(in fact their last scene together is in S.W.O.R.D. headquarters). 

By the way, I am with you on Beast's appearance.  But the main reason I didn't get this series is because I hate the whole Lockheed is intelligent thing.
