Two reviews on tap for tonight, posted a little bit later than I usually do... Blame work for that. But better late than never, right? Well, unless the books suck, then it would have been better never than late...
New Mutants #40:
Summary: Warlock and Cypher discuss how they should defeat the Ani-Mator virus in their head, since they combined into Douglok last issue. While the two are (literally) putting their heads together in their combined mind, they are also fighting the Ani-Mator virus in the real world. Douglok manages to get the Ani-Mator virus away from the two remaining New Mutants who weren't absorbed by the virus(Dani and Nate) before enacting their plan, which was to inject a small amount of Warlock's transmode virus into the Ani-Mator virus, rewriting the Ani-Mator virus and erasing the Ani-Mator's personality from the virus, rendering it harmless and ending the threat. From there, Cypher feels better having faced down the site of his death, as well as the man responsible(in a way...), which ends this issue.
Thoughts: Meh. Too much Cypher and Warlock, not enough Nate, says I! But then I've never really been a big fan of Warlock OR Cypher, so a storyline revolving around them saving the rest of the team isn't going to be my cup of tea. For fans of those two characters though? This is definitely the issue for you!
Score: 6 out of 10.
Nate does always seem to be hanging back observing things, doesn't he?
