A Slayer’s Superpower Shout-Outs: The Radtacular References of ‘Buffy’ #32
There’s a lot to like about this week’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” #32 and it has plenty to do with its title: “Buffy Has F#©$ing Superpowers.”
Brad Meltzer and Georges Jeanty have a mastery of the book’s cast and its never truer than when the Whedonisms start to soar as Buffy experiments with her newfound abilities at the behest of a very enthusiastic Xander.
Meltzer is definitely the right author for the job, given his “Identity Crisis” background, and despite the fact that much of his super hero writing is known for more grim elements, the issue is chock fulla’ laffs.
Check out some of the issue’s funniest superpower/super hero references after the jump. The quirkiness is spoiler free in terms of plot, but depending on your sensibility, you might want to read the issue first.Kitty Pryde:
