Icon #6

Icon continues his battle with Blood Syndicate and they finally come to a truce after he explains that his mission on the island is to investigate what happened during the Big Bang Incident.  Rocket comes to help her partner and learns that Icon is more than capable of handling himself.

He scolds Rocket for coming to help him while she’s pregnant. Rocket fires back at him and states her current state should not stop her superhero duties. I like the growing relationship between Icon and Rocket.  He states that he has lived to see Slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Civil Rights movement of the 1950 & 1960s, and how it has shaped his outlook presently.  Rocket begins to begin connect to him on a deeper level.

This issue pushes the main storyline forward but I thought there could have been a sidebar of Icon and Rocket’s growing relationship.  I hope that will be explored in future issues.  Onto to Issue 7!
