Having seen Pietro (and Wanda) in Avengers: Age of Ultron and also the first set of comics from this series, I was quite happy to have the opportunity to learn a bit more about him.
I really liked seeing Pietro interacting with and protecting his sister. While it would have been nice to see more of him interacting with other members of the Avengers and X-Men in the first comic, I did like seeing how he viewed Magneto at the start. And I did have a lot of sympathy for both Pietro and Wanda, even without knowing all of the details of their past.
I’ve seen a few different comics dealing with the aftermath of Wanda’s new reality by now, but it was interesting to see it from Pietro’s perspective and how he had to cope with no longer having his mutant ability.
While I could see that Pietro was struggling in the second set of comics and clearly couldn’t cope with being at the same speed as everyone else, I couldn’t see much in the way of his apparent arrogance. And although it was interesting to see him interacting with Crystal, when I learned about their history together, I found myself feeling even more sympathy towards Pietro.
I really liked being able to see more of the Inhumans and also being able to see a bit more of Black Bolt’s personality, although I did think he was somewhat cruel. It was nice to see the artwork in the second set of comics change with the different settings, giving each place a different atmosphere.
There were some darker aspects in the second storyline and I’m not sure I completely understood how Pietro’s abilities had been changed by the mists… at least not at first. I didn’t really know how his time travel worked, though. It would have been good to see it fit better together.
It was awful to see how many of the mutants were affected by the loss of their powers and I did feel a lot of sympathy for them. I could understand their desperation to have their powers back.
I liked seeing Luna and Pietro together, but I felt that Pietro did eventually do right by his daughter, even though he put her in danger in the first place.
Wanda’s is the next comic on my Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes list to read… but in the future, I would definitely be interested in reading more about Pietro and his sister.
