WARLOCK #1-9 (1999-2000)

This was another Marvel M-Tech title, and it brought Louise Simonson back to Marvel’s mutant comics. It’s fitting, since she killed Warlock back in New Mutants #95. Cypher is dead, too, but the two characters reemerged as Douglock and there really hasn’t been much explanation about how that happened. If you’re a fan of the character, this is definitely worth your time. If you’re not, it’s still a solid read.

He’s being pursued by the Psi-Cops, who believe (rightly) that Warlock’s existence–essentially as a living virus–is a threat to humanity. Although the book touches on the Marvel universe (notably with appearances by Spider-Man, Iron Man and Kitty Pryde), it’s largely self-contained.

It doesn’t change much, though, so it’s inessential reading. And not without humor. Louise Simonson came to this book after working on Superman over at DC, and Warlock at one point changes shape in a meta fashion…
