One of the biggest mysteries in the Marvel Universe over the past few years centered on whatever The Unseen said to Thor in Jason Aaron and Mike Deodato's Original Sin that caused the Odinson to become unworthy of Mjolnir. It's been a long wait for those answers, but this week the conclusion of Aaron and Olivier Coipel's The Unworthy Thor revealed the truth of those damning words, while setting up a couple more big mysteries for the future.

Last year, just before DC were set to release Marc Andreyko and Aaron Lopresti's Hawkman and Adam Strange: Out of Time, the publisher announced the series had a new, more foreboding title: Death of Hawkman. While downplaying Adam Strange's co-starring role in the miniseries, it promised the final fate of DC's most confusing continuity conundrum. The final issue came out this week, and now we have a definitive answer to the question; "Will DC actually kill off a character in a miniseries named after their death?"

Note: Spoilers for Death of Hawkman #6 follow!

ICYMI: The San Diego Convention Center Has Survived The Great Disaster

I've always wondered what it would be like to, say, play a Fallout game that takes place in a city where you live. I imagine it would be pretty weird to see the local landmarks of the place you grew up rendered with the age and ruin of the Great Disaster upon them, but until someone decides to set their apocalyptic fantasy in rural South Carolina, I don't think I'll ever know. I mean, if nothing else, I'm not sure you'd be able to tell.

But this week, I did have something close to that experience while reading Kamandi Challenge #2, because Peter J. Tomasi and Neal Adams have presented me with the post-apocalyptic version of a building that I'm very familiar with. So in case you missed it, the San Diego Convention Center, the home of Comic-Con International, has canonically survived the Great Disaster and emerged into a post-apocalyptic wasteland that's only slightly less hellish than the one it turns into every July here in our time.

ICYMI: A New Director For SHIELD Paves The Way For ‘Secret Empire’

With Civil War II done and dusted, Marvel has its eyes on the next big event to change everything forever. The publisher has shared teasers for an upcoming storyline titled "Secret Empire," but no further information has been revealed.

Given the current storyline in Captain America: Steve Rogers, in which Rogers has been rewritten as a secret fascist, and the events of the original "Secret Empire" story, in which the US government was infiltrated by extremists at the highest levels, it seems likely that the new "Secret Empire" story will see Rogers' HYDRA insinuate its way further into the Marvel Universe --- and the groundwork has been laid with the appointment of a new director of SHIELD in this week's Marvel comics.

Cave Carson Has A Cybernetic Eye #1, DC/Young Animal

Superwoman-Feat

There's been a lot of talk in recent weeks about queer characters in superhero comics and how to appropriately convey the information that the character is queer while not having them scream it at the top of their lungs. While most attention has naturally gone to Wonder Woman, even though she has yet to be confirmed queer on the page, this week's Superwoman #3 by Phil Jimenez, Emanuela Lupacchino, Ray McCarthy and Hi-Fi tackled the revelation of a supporting character's sexuality in an effortless way.

ICYMI: ‘All-Star Batman’ #3 Had The Most Surprising Return Of The Year (This Week)

All-Star Batman #3, DC Comics

2016 has been a pretty amazing year for people who love obscure and forgotten DC Comics characters (read: me), but this week, the Rebirth era got its most shocking return yet. As Batman and Two-Face continued their road trip upstate in the pages of All-Star Batman, beset on all sides by assassins, arch-villains, and other assorted ne'er-do-wells, they run straight into one of the most unexpected characters in a long time --- and no, I'm not talking about KGBeast. That dude came back last month. This one's even weirder.
