Weapon Plus: World War IV #1 (2020)
Summary: Two for one adventures of Weapon IV and Project Brute Force.
Man plant and animals
The Marvel universe has no shortage of secret government projects to create super soldiers running amok. Must be a much more competent government in that universe as the President can’t even get a blow job in our world without everyone in the world finding out about it whether they want to or not.
The first story concerns a man/plant hybrid created by the Weapon IV program who is tasked for “one last mission” to find his brother who was working on an invasive fungus before he disappeared.
I enjoyed this story as it reminded me of the Predator and had elements of previous stories such as Wolverine and Weapon X in it. As I said before there are no shortage of secret government projects running amok, mutants and superheros in this universe.
Great artwork to go along with it and it reminded me a lot of Swamp Thing and the one episode of the Twilight Zone where the fungus escapes from the meteorite.
This seems like it will be a good story to follow moving forward and I look forward to future entries.
This series ran in the 90s as Project Brute Force and this seems to be a reboot. It also reminds me that Animal Rescue Squad still has not been released, boo!
A nice enough reboot of this series but not sure if it couldn’t have been spun off into its own comic to give Weapon IV a few more pages. There might even be a crossover between the two I do not know.
Kind of a nice to have to add to this release but not really necessary, I would still buy it for the first story mainly.
