    Another volume of MG&DD that delights in insulting the readers intelligence. Heres the problem I have with Moon Girl: she claims to be the smartest person in the Marvel Universe but she never does anything that would indicate this is true. Her main arsenal consists of boxing gloves and roller skates on springs and a helicopter beanie... all of which are more the sort of thing youd expect to see in the Beano or Dandy, not from somebody whos supposedly smarter than Reed Richards and Tony Another volume of MG&DD that delights in insulting the readers’ intelligence. Here’s the problem I have with Moon Girl: she claims to be the smartest person in the Marvel Universe but she never does anything that would indicate this is true. Her main ‘arsenal’ consists of boxing gloves and roller skates on springs and a helicopter beanie... all of which are more the sort of thing you’d expect to see in the Beano or Dandy, not from somebody who’s supposedly smarter than Reed Richards and Tony Stark. When she does come up with something technologically advanced, it never works properly/backfires spectacularly. The writers only ever make her look smarter than other genius-level characters by having them act like complete imbeciles. There are two prime examples in this volume: Peter Parker and Reed Richards are both written like they could barely tie their shoelaces and completely out of character to boot. Moon Girl’s most unlikable trait is her supreme arrogance and total lack of any kind of humility. Her personality is more like that of a super villain than a hero. I keep expecting her to cackle maniacally and heartlessly bump off a henchman for a minor infraction. In 47 issues she has demonstrated absolutely no character growth whatsoever. The character is often lauded as a great, empowering example to look up to for young, black, female readers but I worry that she’s not actually a good role model at all due to her near-sociopathic arrogance and complete lack of empathy. In this last volume, she basically runs a protection racket on a local sweet shop owner and it’s played for laughs! I don’t know, maybe I’m just over sensitive... Two stars, purely for the artwork, which was quite nice.

    Lunella has easily won her way into my list of favorite Marvel characters, and I'm sad to have to say goodbye to her title so soon. It's also been rough seeing how harsh some adults have been towards this series. I think many of them are missing the significance of having a self-assured young black girl leading her own narrative and refusing to apologize for her intelligence and intuition in order to make the grownups around her feel more secure. Children often have their opinions and feelings Lunella has easily won her way into my list of favorite Marvel characters, and I'm sad to have to say goodbye to her title so soon.

Children often have their opinions and feelings devalued by parents and mentors who claim they're doing it for their own good, and I don't doubt reading a story in which a child is assertive and capable, in spite of many hindrances, is healthy for young people who feel a lack of respect and control in their own lives. I hope Lunella and Devil Dinosaur will continue to be included in upcoming comics with their same confidence and readiness to disprove anyone who doubts their proficiency, and that the new cartoon appeals to those who have always believed in them.

    Not a great ending, unfortunately. This volume collects 6 issues, which are mostly individual stories aside from the final two-parter. The Spider-Man issue that opens the volume made me say 'Spidey's out of character', which is something I hardly ever say, but this issue makes him an insufferable idiot who won't stop for one second and see what Lunella's actually trying to do. The art's from Ray-Anthony Height is okay, but feels over-inked. The War Of The Realms tie-in is pretty funny overall, but Not a great ending, unfortunately.

The art's from Ray-Anthony Height is okay, but feels over-inked. The War Of The Realms tie-in is pretty funny overall, but more in a storybook sense than a comic book one. The art's pretty fun though, Gustavo Duarte's got a good line and sells the expression in a Skottie Young-like manner. After that comes a time-travel escapade which feels like it should have a good moral and then falls apart right at the end, which is a running theme here. It could have been a lot more than it was, which is the same with the field trip issue in the next issue which could have been cute but instead became irritating because Lunella's friends are about as irritating as she is at her worst moments. The final two parter also doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. The idea of bringing in the F4 to try and explain once and for all if Lunella's the smartest one in the Marvel Universe is clever, but it's mostly just bickering between the F4 and Lunella before an open-ended conclusion. Alitha Martinez takes over the art for the final four issues, and is probably the closest to series artist Natacha Bustos in style. I like Moon Girl as a character; I just find that she's probably the worst part of this series. The writers never seem to be able to give her any humility, and she never learns her lesson. She may be the smartest person in the Marvel Universe, but that doesn't mean she can't be a little nicer. I'm not sure that she's a great role model either, which is disappointing. In fact, Moon Girl probably works the best outside this series, because whenever she's shown up elsewhere, other writers have handled her far, far better.

    I want Moongirl/Lunella Lafayette to get the Spideyverse treatment, yknow make her more likable. Shes super-smart with a dinosaur-pal (who she can uncontrollably switch consciousness with), which could spin-off into a bunch of fun, different stories. Right now, shes a little too know-it-all-ish and rude. Dont get me wrong I love those Im so above these plebeians characters, but Moongirl needs a soft side too. As she is now, shes too bratty. Moon girl needs a character overhaul. I thought the I want Moongirl/Lunella Lafayette to get the Spideyverse treatment, y’know make her more likable.

Disappointed.

    While I like the characters of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur, I wasn't entirely sold on the execution of this volume. While the story set in Asgard was hilarious, the rest felt disjointed and seemed to lack any real structure. It feels to me that the writers seem to struggle with how to balance Lunella as a character, as characters frequently try to teach her humility and it always fails. The story with Mr Fantastic, in particular, had a rather mixed message as it felt as though Lunella ultimately While I like the characters of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur, I wasn't entirely sold on the execution of this volume.

The story with Mr Fantastic, in particular, had a rather mixed message as it felt as though Lunella ultimately proved that he crappy behaviour was justified. Still, at least the art is still bright and colourful and Devil Dinosaur is adorable. I'm not sure if I'm going to keep going with this series now, but I did at least really enjoy the early issues and would certainly recommend checking out the first couple of volumes.

    Moon Girl continues to pack a punch! I enjoy the trend of superheroes eating snacks on top of tall buildings (Ms. Marvel does this too). And Devil Dinosaur having a love connection - brilliant!
