Black Cat #11

Black Cat #11 comic reviewThe comic’s opening arc continues as Black Cat has managed to steal all the pieces for the Randall Gate. Now all that’s missing for Black Fox‘s planned heist of the Thieves Guild is the key to turning the thing on. In a comic that has featured Felicia breaking in to the who’s who of the Marvel Universe, could there be anywhere else to retrieve it but Stark Unlimited?

Despite my having serious doubts about Stark security not being able to recognize Felicia Hardy in a wig, I’ll admit the comic has fun with Felicia playing on Tony Stark’s weakness for both redheads and women who enjoy verbally sparring with him. With the help of a little tech allowing her to temporarily pass for Stark where the building’s automated systems are concerned and a patsy to drag Iron Man’s attention elsewhere, Felicia is able to work her way to the Stark Nanoforge and forge the Dimensional Resonator.

Black Cat #9

Black Cat #9 comic reviewI have no idea what is going on any any of the X-Men books right now so I’m not sure if the events of this issue conflict with what’s happening elsewhere, but Black Cat #9 takes Felicia to Madripoor for an unlikely team-up. Looking for another item on the list necessary for Black Fox‘s big score leads Felicia in search of a man named Patch (who the Marvel Universe isn’t helpful in identifying and turns out to be anything but what she expected to find).

The events presented here could have gone very definitely. I enjoyed Felicia breaking in only to find out she’d been beaten to the punch by the juvenile Kade Kilgore. Rather than adversaries, the plot throws Logan and Felicia together as partners with shared interests (the first of which is pissing of the teenage genius).

Black Cat #8

Black Cat #8 comic reviewBlack Cat #8 features a guest-appearance by the Beetle who Felicia recruits as back-up for her latest thievery of a Marvel hero. The pair have a fun patter as Beetle repeatedly attempts to sell the Black Cat on joining a group primarily made-up of all Spider-Man villains. I do think the Black Cat works best when there’s room for dialogue and the art by Dike Ruan proves to be an equally nice match for the tone of the issue.

As for the job, the comic keeps to its format with Hardy targeting Iron Fist who is legitimately amused by the entire situation, finding it refreshing to deal with a thief rather than the regular type of villains who usually target him.

Black Cat #6

Black Cat #6 comic reviewBlack Cat #6 moves away from the previous issues as it doesn’t involve Felicia Hardy breaking into a well-known location within the Marvel Universe. However, it does continue to follow-up on various threads introduced in previous issues. One of these includes Odessa Drake and the Thieves Guild going after the Black Fox.

As for the Black Cat, she’s given the night out with a surprisingly good first date with Batroc the Leaper which involves dinner, some late night breaking-and-entering, burglary, and other carnal pursuits. While Felicia doesn’t expect much from Batroc, I was surprised by his inclusion here (and, like Felicia, surprised to discover how charming he can be when he isn’t bouncing around in a ridiculous outfit).
