  1. Totally agree with this review. I have read all of Hickman’s run and I also have no clue who the guy whose body they are inside is. A lot of the panels seemed extra large to make the story end quicker. Also finally I found it stupid when Reed controlled that white blood cell, it just seemed like a cop out. I love Hickman but this story was a 3/5 at best.

  2. Willie Lumpkin is their mailman. He’s an old old school character from the Stan and Jack run, played by Stan Lee in the movie.

    He’s kind of a stalwart cameo character in the MU.

    I agree that this issue was incredibly ‘meh’. It was tedious, predictable (in every way — I knew who it was they were in from the first page), stupid (in the sense that it was bad science), totally devoid of real character work and perhaps least surprisingly it was an example of poor craft. As mentioned, the character had never been introduced in Hickman’s run. There were no emotional stakes for the average reader, nothing.

    Probably one of the worst things I’ve seen Hickman write in a while. I suspect he’s funneling it all into Manhattan Projects now.

  3. Ah right, because of the kids at the end I think I assumed he must have been some relation to Sue & Jonny, like an uncle or something. Nice to know who he actually is, cheers.
