I’ve been reading the Moon Girl one-shots to my daughter this summer and we went through this last one over the weekend during a post-hurricane power outage. This issue felt more accessible, but that might be because I find it easier to explain Wolverine and Havoc than Avengers characters. The story is brimming with New Men, the High Evolutionary, dinosaurs and a lot of other silly elements, but it all hangs together better than I would have expected. The story is snappy and has some charming character moments.
TO THE MOON AND BEYOND! The High Evolutionary is a dino-napper! With Captain Marvel’s help, Lunella tracks him all the way to the Moon itself to get him back, and stop the High Evolutionary from setting an army of dino-clones loose on Earth. But even when they’re reunited, something’s wrong – her connection with DD has been broken. Now Moon Girl must team up with Wolverine and chase the High Evolutionary to Counter-Earth in search of answers…or risk losing her best friend for good.X-Men & Moon Girl (2022) #1
