Marvel Comics & Heroes Reborn #5 Spoilers & Review: Nighthawk Vs. Green Goblin With No Spider-Man As Avengers Assemble One-By-One! Who Is Ronin?

Marvel Comics and Heroes Reborn #5 Spoilers and Review follows.

Nighthawk Vs. Green Goblin With No Spider-Man As Avengers Assemble One-By-One! Who Is Ronin?

The book has a few more variant covers in addition to the above.

Plus the main cover.

We open with a bio for Nighthawk of the Squadron Supreme of America…

…as well as creator credits for the main and back-up stories for the issue.

Nighthawk tells us about his past while his guns are a blazing around Ravencroft Asylum.

In a bit of a flashback, we pivot to Washington D.C. delegate in Congress, Kyle Richmond, speaking yet gets pulled away on super business as…

…he’s Nighthawk and his lair is below Congress?!

We then get back to present as Nighthawk is in Ravencroft dealing with a riot including Bullseye.

We pivot farther into the past and see that Nighthawk has experienced…

…the Amazing Spider-Man moments with Venom…

…Gwen Stacy and Green Goblin yet things turned out differently.

In modern day it seems Gwen is criminally insane along with the Green Goblin and…

…she’s dangerous maiming Goblin!

Somehow the Green Goblin remembers the old world too…

…triggering Nighthawk to do some digging and realizing Captain America is back.

In the back-up, we have Nighthawk battle…

…Ronin.

Looks like its a standstill as…

…Ronin returns to Africa…

…changing back to Black Panther to be recruited by Captain America and Blade.

We then get the Heroes Reborn checklist including this event’s one-shots…

…plus a tease of next week’s Heroes Reborn #6 (of 7) which will give Power Princess the profile.

The Pulse:

I remain disappointed that the main stories for Heroes Reborn are essentially one-shots focusing on the various members of the Squadron Supreme of America and the back-ups are the real “event” for me as the Avengers Assemble under the pencil of a superstar artist. I thinks this event would have worked better as a combined Squadron Supreme in the main story and the one-shots could have included the team character profiles. Anyhow, main story was interesting with Nighthawk filling the Spider-Man vacuum for his classic rogues, but the art was not my liking. I enjoyed the story and art in the back-up through. 5 out of 10.
