  1. Spoilerish review for those who haven t read the series.He didn t mean that Honest What with losing his marbles and killing a gazillion people Cut the guy some slack.Unless, of course, you ve been incinerated, fallen 1000 feet to your death or been ripped limb from limb or had your head torn off and thrown into orbit around Saturn Then, it s game over No alphabet themed plans Aside from trying to get into Bette Noir s pants, does every hero have some sort of secret agenda More plan B s from the [...]


  2. This volume is getting what usually taking place that usually take i the middle of soap opera Predictable but with pretty good execution.


  3. Irredeemable volume 4 includes the Irredeemable Special which wasn t really all that special and then continues on with the core story The Special had some mildly interesting prequel stuff that focuses on Hornet, Kaiden, and Max Damage of Waid s other related series Incorruptible And nope, I haven t read that one yet Some spoilery stuff to follow, but I ll try and keep it to a minimum.The next part of the book picks up with what s left of the team following their run in with Uncle Sam at the con [...]


  4. This is getting ridiculous I ve read four books in this series now and for the life of me can t find a single thing wrong with it Most series tend to sag somewhere around Book 4 but this book is brilliant like the previous 3 I cannot fault it, Mark Waid is just doing all the right things in this series This book turns the focus on the team mates of Paradigm, the book opening with brief stories about 3 of them and their backgrounds drawn by different artists Then the main story resumes with a fla [...]


  5. The cover shows The Plutonian standing tall, holding earth over his head He s staring at the reader SECRETS ARE REVEALED The battle continues between Cary Survivor Tony Sam is actually Modeus Plus we learn how Max Damage found Jailbait.


  6. Although the premise of this series is an original enough pushing the concept that not only does power corrupt, but that absolute power corrupts absolutely my interest started to wane for the very first time with this latest volume At first I thought it was because of the split narrative structure But since it worked so brilliantly in the first several volumes, I then realized that it wasn t that What it clear is that Waid has a long term endgame in mind But it is taking too long, with seemingly [...]


  7. Volume 4 keeps up the great pacee Paradigm is falling apart, one of them dies, one of them is exposed for a failure, and the team has a chance to defeat Plutonian, but inexplicably, one of the team prevents that from happeningwill we find out why Honestly these are all going at such a great pace, I can hardly keep them apart, as I usually read back to back volumes.The Plutonian is obviously angry, but I like that they show how he s been holding all the rage in his whole life and was always bubbl [...]



  8. This volume picks up the pacing and a lot of shit happens in a small amount of time So we get a lot background, a lot history, and I love it I enjoy watching characters grow, it s my favorite part of reading, so this offered a lot More into why this Superman like hero became a killer, why certain people didn t tell the world their secrets, and most of all someone finds out who someone else is I really dug this volume, the action was great, and the twist were fun Who s the real baddie here WHO


  9. The art was good, as always, and a couple important for later plot points were made, but overall it felt kind of slight Too much rehashing of stuff that happened in earlier volumes.


  10. Too much is going on within this series to write critically about it without giving away all the secrets that are exposed in the fourth volume of Mark Waid s IRREDEEMABLE, so here s what readers absolutely need to know 1 The plot thickens in ways than one here For those readers who may imagined that IRREDEEMABLE wouldn t get a lot of mileage out of a story devoted to Superman Gone Wild and the hodge podge of heroes devoted to saving the planet, they re still mostly right Just as Waid generated [...]


  11. There s a lot of recap and history in this volume who were all of these superheroes before they met and hooked up with the Plutonian And how much have their lives changed since he blew his top and went rogue In the last installment, we learned that Bette Noir had the means to defeat the Plutonian all along the final remnants of a candle that renders him powerless When Bette comes clean about that, she also has to admit that she slept with the Plutonian a fact which her husband is loathe to accep [...]


  12. The potential good news is the Plutonian s sidekick appears to be OK The bad news is the sidekick isn t really, since the Plutonian s greatest enemy, Luthor to his Superman, is possessing the body Volume 4 goes from there, showing the Paradigm s escape from military custody, and backstory for the three characters the reader is told could stop the rampaging former hero One is a reformed villain, soon to get his own series One is the former teammate who can conjure ancient ghosts and legends And t [...]


  13. In this installment we get some payoff from the plot threads laid down in volume three Bette Noir s marriage is on the rocks, but so is her sanity and chances for redemption Bette wants people to forgive her for not revealing that she had a likely weapon for killing the Plutonian when this all started and she failed to reveal it because to do so would reveal her affair with the Plutonian We get some Plutonian unnecessary nastiness towards the foster family that raised him, as he again shows what [...]


  14. Mark Waid writerPeter Krause artist5 5 starsThe Paradigm escape from prison and make a deal with the extra dimensional demon Orian in order to take out the Plutonion A weapon that can damage the Plutonion is created, and the heroes stage a desperate attack on their former ally More exciting stuff from Waid and Krause.


  15. I m sort of touch and go with this series This volume made up for the last one so that momentum will probably carry me on to vol 5 Still, just seems like this series goes on and on Not sure I can hang in there for the whole thing Maybe Incorruptable will help the interest level You re still my boy, Waid.


  16. I used to get Mark Waid and Mark Millar mixed up They both do write for independents and they both have a flair for the diabolical Then I started to think that Waid is a watered down Millar Yeah I know, I m a jerk, But now I am certain of it.As the story continues it seems like it is getting stretched really thin, and the artwork is just embarrassing.




  17. A terrific climax to several volumes worth of stories, every bit as bloody as expected, plus some nice backstory on a variety of characters.


  18. Super good guy becomes super bad guy, on a major scale Nice artwork The change effects all his former teammates in a major way.


  19. Whatever Gil is, he is persistent, and a bit mad His determination may be what finally wins the day I think psychology is what will determine the final battle Plutonian will not be defeated by brute strength or raw power It will take a mental attack of great magnitude, one that resonates on an emotional level This is what I figured after reading this volume Why Plutonian is so emotionally guided rage, revenge, fear, loathing, lust, jealousy, etc He is so distraught he has no idea that his closes [...]



  20. I m at the point where I have hardly any sympathy for Plutonian I m sure that s the point His nuclear level, over the top temper tantrum has cost the lives of millions of innocents, and his homicidal impulses are unchecked I mean, get over it I think many of us have lived through being unpopular and didn t turn into mass murderers The remaining members of his former team Paradigm are working to stop him Bette has to face her demons about her massive betrayals of her husband, the other team membe [...]


  21. Reason for Reading Next in the seriesThis volume contains Special Issue 1 and the next three issues of Irredeemable The book starts with the Special which takes us back into the past giving us further background story to reveal three important persons in the coming future We learn the whole story of Hornet the man who was burned with his family by Plutonian at the very beginning of the series, in Vol 1 There is also a reveal here that will affect the future We are introduced to a new character a [...]


  22. Interesting arc that loses a bit of momentum World The art is good, it s real and sets the tone wonderfully for this grim dark tale I wish there was sense of motion but that s just me The world building is strong and tied to character building Waid is good with it, he does not info dump but gives you enough for the characters to have a fully fleshed out world to play in Story The continuation of the Bette story and the conclusion of the Orion one It was tense when it happened and was paced well [...]


  23. I ve seen other people complain that and I ll cover this without spoilers of specifics the story suffers from keeping the story going Ie, the Gilligan s Island syndrome no matter what, the cast will stay stuck on the island.Basically, there was an opportunity to stop The Plutonian here, but it failed through the interference of another Again, no spoilers You know what So what The series is pacing things well enough, it doesn t need to end in less than 20 issues, for goodness sake If the story en [...]


  24. Finally the histories of the characters are being taken on And the feeling that this group is little than JLA with a twist Well, I have to say I m glad to see it finally moving past the pastiche.The biggest complaint I ve had about Irredeemable was the fact that it would have worked better as a DC Elseworlds With the development of some of the back stories, the comic is finally becoming its own story I m fascinated by Kaidan, the one character with a truly original super power and history I was [...]


  25. Things are finally starting to come to a head in this Volume Villains who were set up in previous volumes start to reveal how dangerous they truly are instead of being pawns who never stood a chance against Plutonian and The Paradigm finally confronts the Plutonian in an effort to kill him.Waid has done an excellent job of throwing in a little anarchy and making us second guess everything When the series started out, it was The Paradigm, who stood little to no chance, united against the Plutonia [...]


  26. The only problem I had with this one was the little mini arcs issues didn t add much, and they threw me off a bit as I went from the third trade to the fourth Also, as I ve decided to not read Incorruptible until I finish this, the Max Damage stuff didn t resonate with me, despite knowing the bare minimum about him.Other than that, Waid is still right on with pretty much all of his instincts and actions The pacing is incredible Plot and character develop at a quick speed, but I never feel lost T [...]
