In lieu of an actual “Juggernaut” collection, we’re gonna look at each part of this interesting transformation individually! 🙂
The Incredible Hulk: What Savage Beast by Peter David is one of those rare works that are simultaneously derivative of their source material, while still respecting it’s funnybook roots.
The only negative to this story is that it’s not really about the Beast. It’s about Karma, but Karma isn’t nearly recognizable enough to warrant a title name.
So once again I find myself making up a collection out of the uncollected sections of the X-Men’s history during the late ’90s, and more than any other time, I have to wonder: why? This is a sprawling, epic story that leads from the desperation and anti-mutant fear that occurred as a result of the Onslaught storyline.
Despite being never reprinted, this is one of the most important issues in the entire Marvel Comics timeline.
If you’re only interested in the story, skip buying Onslaught: The Complete Epic Book 3 and just wedge a back-issue of X-Man #19 between Books 2 and 4 on your bookshelf.
Acts of Vengeance was a 1989-1990 crossover that spanned most of the Marvel Comics titles and effected them with varying degrees of severity — though not a steadfast rule, it can generally be said that the closer a book was to the then-Avengers status-quo, the more it was affected.
