Psychological warfare and the battle of the sexes takes a whole new meaning when you're fighting the most powerful man in existence.

With Irredeemable and Incorruptible now on their march to the finish line, things actually need to start wrapping up for the world ravaged by the Plutonian (and saved by Max Damage, possibly). Modeus, the mind-hopping villain of the Plutonian, has taken his love of the former hero to a whole new level, in possibly one of the creepiest maneuvers in comic book history. While Ms. Marvel might have been impregnated by her own spawn (or whatever that plot point we all try to forget was), Modeus has taken over the Plutonian's female ally… and became his ultimate dream girl?

Barreto gets a few good visuals in when he can devote time and space to faces, instead of just having them attached to bodies hurtling through buildings. The page where Modeus and Plutonian meet up has great tense anger and teasing victory inherent in both their faces, for example. When he focuses on the destructive aspect of their war, though, it doesn't get better on his one page destruction of a major chunk of a city in a splash.

It's a disconcerting issue with a true oddity of a story at its heart. Mark Waid's definitely written something that's creepy and rather out there for "superhero" comics, and Diego Barreto's brought it to life with some great panels and pages. This'll be a book that'll end too soon.
