From Marvel Comics and the creative team of Nathan Edmondson (writer), Mike Perkins (artist) and Andy Troy (color artist), Deathlock #1 is a great revamping of a fun older Marvel action character.
What is an especially fun twist in the latest version of the human/cyborg para military operative is that the protagonist, Henry Hayes, doesn’t even know that he is a secret weapon and mercenary. As far as Henry knows, he works for Medics without Borders, whose job it is to go into war zones and provide medical treatment to people in need.
However, whenever he is activated for a mission, his conscious mind is replaced by deep programming, turning the normally friendly, moral and single Father of a spoiled teenager, into Deathlock; a ruthless, unrelenting and extremely deadly machine of war that will stop at nothing to accomplish his mission. And then as soon as his mission is complete and every target around him has been efficiently and tactically exterminated, his mind is wiped and Deathlock once again becomes the nice guy next door.
This first issue was drawn very well with great action, story and plot from beginning to end and I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to issue two. Go out and pick this one up folks!
