Did they smoke out the Germans with some tasty buds? Or did they sick a representative of The Green on them? I think a representative of The Green was actually created during this time. Oh no, that takes place in December of 1942! And in the old DCU! I forget the date of the creation of the Green's Representative in the New DCU. Anyway, it isn't either of those and seeing as how I already posted a picture of the cover, it's not really much of a secret anyway. Frankenstein is set loose on the Germans! So how do they do it? Give him a big gun and shove him down to the front lines? Nope!
To Frankenstein, "Riding the Lightning" means coming to life instead of being put to death.
Is a dancing corpse really all that sexy?
J.A.K.E. heads straight for the sub Frank is on so they launch Frank out of a torpedo tube to fight it. As they fight under water, Dr. Crane, watching it remotely, engages a special feature he built into it: The Traitor Button! The Japanese Attack Killer Elite changes sides and becomes the Joint Allied Killer Elite! Now the allies have a robot monster too!
The Robot joins sides and gives them all the intel it has on the Japanese. They have a secret project called "Motalla" (All Atom backwards?) which is set to be launched on New York. And launched it is in Chapter Four called "Monster in my Pocket!" So is the secret weapon Pikachu?
Nope! It's this Pokemon which I've never caught before!
Is that the only beast killing move you have in your bag, Lemire? Oh, that and the stabbing the creature in the eye. Let's hope you think up some new moves for future Frank issues.
I really don't know what the point of this story was. G.I. Robot's origin? Not fascinating enough. To show a growing camaraderie between Frank and JAKE due to their emotionally unavailable personalities and rigid physiques? I don't know. It just seemed like a lame way to end Men of War. It was really just a big ad saying, "Hey! This comic is ending but you can read the other one we have about this character, Frankenstein, every month!"
Men of War Issue #8 Rating: -1 Ranking. It was really just a boring, waste of time.
