Monsters Unleashed #2 Review by (February 13, 2017)
Tie-ins from this week and next:-

All-New X-Men #1.MU

The new Wolverine leads her team, including most of the time-lost young original X-Men, to New Orleans where they meet Gambit and fight 1 of the falling monsters. This team and monster haven't been featured in the main title so far.

Uncanny Inhumans #1.MU

In the current issue Medusa mentions that the Inhumans are going to fight 2 monsters in Rome. This is that fight. Crystal leads the team but the story centres around Captain Swain the telepathic pilot who links minds with 1 of them.


Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Monsters Unleashed #2 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) leads the heroes of Alpha Flight against the monsters in space, trying to destroy them before they make Earthfall. In Portland, Oregon, Captain America (Sam Wilson) tries to coordinate Earth's defenses with Black Panther, the X-Men, Inhumans, Guardians of the Galaxy, and SHIELD yet the monsters continue to fall from the skies....

In New York, Moon Girl puts together a device that can roughly translate the monsters' speech into English and discovers that these attacks are preparation for a ruler/overlord to take over the Earth....

Professional monster hunter Elsa Bloodstone traces clues to the monsters' origin and settles on the name of schoolboy Kei Kawade....

Thor (Jane Foster) arrives in San Diego to aid the Guardians against a larger influx of alien creatures. And more keep coming....

Elsa Bloodstone teleports into the bedroom of eleven-year-old Kei Kawade who enjoys drawing pictures of monster and who is somehow a part of the apocalyptic events....

All available superheroes speed to San Diego where the enormous number of creatures surrounds them and even Captain America is at a loss for words....
