VLog: TNTM’s Troy reviews DC Comics Milestone Returns: Rocket and Icon #1

I really like that DC Comics is bringing back the Milestone Comics Dakotaverse. There are a lot of interesting characters that didn’t get the due they deserve. Rocket and Icon are two of those characters.

It is also one of the only times you will see the sidekick listed first on a title! This first issue gives us the origin of how Icon (Arnus) came to Earth and how Raquel Ervin (Rocket) convinced him to start fighting crime.

Publisher Description

(W) Reginald Hudlin (A) Doug Braithwaite (CA) Taurin Clarke

Long ago, the stranded alien known as Arnus gave up hope of returning to his home planet. Tragically, he’d also realized that his adopted home of Earth was beyond saving. Content to waste away his long life in a human guise, Arnus was past caring…until the day a young woman named Raquel Ervin crashed into his life. Soon she’d convinced him to put his incredible power to work again as the heroic Icon…and to transform her into his sidekick, Rocket! But an innocent question on Rocket’s part—Why can’t we do something about the drugs on my corner?—quickly set a chain of events in motion leading to the pair becoming the most hunted beings on Earth…and they’re not just being pursued by Earthlings, either!

Writer, director, and producer Reginald Hudlin (Black Panther: Who Is the Black Panther?) and superstar artist Doug Braithwaite unleash a tale of power and responsibility that will stretch from the boardrooms of corporate America to the jungles of South America and the depths of deep space! If you’ve ever thought there were certain things that a superhero story just couldn’t do, it might be time to start thinking different…
