Kung Fu - Transformation television review

The season finale returns Nicky (Olivia Liang) back to the Chinese monastery and a final confrontation with Zhilan (Yvonne Chapman) who has also learned this is the location of the forge where the weapons were imbued with power. We do get some final twists here as power isn’t in the forge and the power of the weapons eventually dispersed equally between Nicky and Zhilan. Nicky’s choice to release the power into the world, rather than horde it for her own use, proves to be the key to defeating Zhilan. However, the series (now renewed for a second season) does tease a new enemy for Nicky in Russell Tan (Kee Chan) who is just as obsessed with getting his hands on the power as Zhilan ever was.

Black Widow #9

Black Widow #9 comic reviewBlack Widow #9 picks up immediately from the previous issue’s cliffhanger with Yelena dead and Black Widow surrounded by the Olio. Enter Lucy with the timely save, and a strategic retreat for the three women. Given the gravity of the situation Natasha was in, things are wrapped up rather quickly, but once out of danger the heroes can begin to regroup.

Anya Corazon and Craig are woven into the story as Widow convinces Apogee‘s former employee about the deadly dangers of his experiments leading Craig (who apparently has some of his own powers) into investigating a cure (although the issue teases the idea that Lucy may not want the cure, even if it can save her life).

Black Cat #8

Black Cat #8 comic reviewA new storyline kicks off here as Black Cat sets her sights on perhaps the most dangerous score of the career. And the person standing in her way is none other than Nick Fury, Jr.. C.F. Villa (who drew some of the previous volume’s better issues) returns as artist freshening up the look of the comic and character once more.

Although the prize she’s after isn’t given away in this opening issue to the new arc, the title “Infinity Score Part 1” and the reveal of what’s in the box (or rather who’s in the box) she manages to steal in front of Fury confirms what Felicia is after this time around. The Black Cat wants the Infinity Stones (which are merged with people now for some reason, rather than just having guardians?).
