Future Fight Firsts: Luna Snow #1 Review

South Korean pop sensation Seol Hee is also the freeze-powered superheroine Luna Snow!

Marvel’s second Future Fight comic hits the stands this week and it features Luna Snow in the main story. Not familiar with Luna Snow? Then you probably don’t play the Future Fight videogame which premiered Luna Snow back in 2015. Created originally by Netmarble Games, Alyssa Wong takes over with this origin story issue after delivering on the White Fox Future Fight tie-in series last week. Can Wong and artist Gang Hyuk Lim deliver a story that’ll intrigue, set up the character, and make you want more? Yes… and sort of no.

This issue opens with Jimmy Woo and Mr. Lao going over Agents of Atlas files. Mr Lao, who is a giant dragon and advisor to Woo isn’t so happy with Woo’s singing of a K-Pop song to himself. We soon learn Mr. Lao is nervous Luna Snow can’t commit to the Agents of Atlas since she has a stadium tour on the horizon. The story then cuts to Seol Hee aka Luna Snow preparing her dance moves for a concert years ago. If you ever wanted to experience the backstage of a K-Pop tour you’re in for a treat as the narrative introduces all of Luna Snow’s band members, their dynamics, and in a short two pages Luna Snow’s first time auditioning.

As far as conflict is concerned Wong and Lim do a good job setting up the villains who have quite the costumes and motive. They attack the stadium and Luna Snow and her fellow singers get trapped. It’s your classic case of an accident creating a hero but given the unique location and back story of Luna Snow, it’s a clever and unique one. Speaking of the accident, Lim positively dazzles with a full-page spread of Luna Snow’s triumphantly using her powers.  It’s a show stopper page.

A strong Agents of Atlas origin story

I will say this story takes a while to get going. From the first page tying Wong and the Agents of Atlas to all the backstage stuff, there isn’t much going on until Luna Snow gets her powers. Once she does it goes back quick. That’s a failing of the issue overall since time is spent elsewhere from Luna Snow on characters that don’t matter much.

Closing out the book is a backup story of the Future Avengers by Wong with art breakdowns by Ale Garza and finishes by Cory Hamscher. Much like the Future Avengers story in the last issue, this is lighter stuff likely written for younger readers. Chloe’s hair is a silly element that might put a smile on your face.

Following this is a one-page breakdown of Luna Snow’s creation from the Marvel Games Senior Producer Danny Koo. If you dig the game I’m sure you’ll enjoy this addition.

I couldn’t help but think this would be an excellent character to introduce in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This story has a lot of potential for an origin story that’d get fans excited. Luna Snow is basically Elsa from Frozen, but even better!

The Luna Snow origin story has some good villains and heroic moments
Excellent Luna Snow hero moments
The main story doesn't do enough letting us in on who Luna Snow is as a person
Not a huge fan of the Future Avengers
