    Default S.W.O.R.D. #2 Review/Spoiler Thread - King in Black Tie-In

    NYC - a dark figure looks at some buildings covered in symbiote stuff



    SWORD, Brand is telling the team that the Klyntar material has formed around Warth and blocking communication and the sun. Taki tells her that the Krakoa gates still work. Manifold says the teleport team is as well. Cortez has no updates. Frenzy is in contact with the Galactic Council. No one responds from the Indigo Security. Mentallo is on the toilet. Brand tells him that he has a mission.

    Data page. Brand is letting him think he's the best telepath they can get. He comes with no loyalty to Krakoa. She has money though through Nick Fury to pay him

    Brand is with the team and wants them to find out what happened to Cable Frenzy introduces her to Paibok, a Power Skrull. Comms are still not up but Taki is working on it. A symbiote dragon is outside the station and he has it shot.. Mentallo wants to know why he should risk his neck if Xavier and Jean cant make a dent in things. Brand lowers her mental defenses so he can read it and find Protocol V which willbe used against Knull



    On Krakoa, Random, Cortezz, Frenzy and Paibok show up. Its snowing since there is no sun. A dragon attacks as Banshee, Sunfire and Magneto join. Sunfire is not impressed to see a Skrull on Krakoa but is taken out by the dragon. Cortez waks him up and boosts his powers as he goes on to defeat the dragon

    Data page. Brand has notes on Cortez. She doesnt trust him but he has the power set needed for their exploration and retriveal missions. Potential replacements are Michael Nowland, Boost and Mister M. Finally there is a redacted person, a female

    The Five are together but are interrupted by Mentallo. who shows up with a tank to retrieve them. Protocol V requires escaping from Earth

    On Krakoa, Cortez is reunited with Magneto. He wants to speak to the Council about some national policy regarding flatscans. Frenzy notes that history is rpeeating itself. A symbiote hand reaches from a gate which should be impossible but its none other than Cable, now possessed

    Who could that redacted woman who is apparently a power booster be? Is it Hope?

    This was another great issue. Lots of things to talk about but I just wanna say Schiti makes Frenzy look absolutely stunning in every panel she appears.

    I thought her too but she was in the next page which would have been way too obvious. I think she's a red herring for someone else

    What we do know:

    1. Its a female
    2. She can control her power amplification
    3. Can amplify more than one mutant at a time
    4. She's snarky.
    5. She has a loyalty to someone or something that might prevent her from being with SWORD

    Hope definitely fits all this by why redact her entry only to have her in the next page?

    King Is Black seems pretty remarkable for how exactly like every other global invasion crossover event it is.

    She can jumpstart mutations(?) I dunno, I was just listening to the CEREBRO podcast and they are talking about her so I google and she seems to have some kind of Boosty power of sorts and she's female and snarky. [shrug]

    This has been good except when I remembered that this was about King in Black.

    It seems that Cable instead of getting a symbiote has been kidnapped by the Joker.

    Snarky? No, it said Snarkwar, which is a Power Pack foe, the Snarks.

    Some quick google searches Arkea or Chance (Fallen Angels) could work

    Considering Ewing has been delivering the deep cuts, Chance would work
