YNegma live up to his reputation.
This will be a breakdown of Episode 1 and addressing that huge cliffhanger that implies this character’s future and his role in all this.
I did a non spoiler review for it a few weeks ago. Feel free to check it out if you haven’t read the comic. You can find it in the comics section or just click the link below.
With that out of the way let’s dive in.
Initially I went expecting a grounded story about YNegma fighting some crime boss or gang. Sometime to do with crime.
THEN THIS HAPPENED!
Is it a variant?
I might be getting ahead of myself but I think this is shaping up to be a multiverse story like Spiderverse but its Into The YNegmaverse.
Or something so bad must’ve happened to the future that it caused a future variant to travel back in the past to stop or warn the variant we’ve been following this whole time to prevent that dark future from happening.
That might involve not Luke Cage. Like he might’ve became mayor of the hood and that ended up causing the darkest timeline or original timeline Future YNegma’s from.
Like he got his powers when he got much older. Then he wound up transferring the YNegma force into his younger self. Similar to Shazam.
Mainly The Flash.
His costume does look similar to Moon Knight.
And the Magneto Supe causing a bunch of collateral damage including Future YNegma is the big brother before he rose to even more power.
Like Magnetism and Super Strength might not be the only ace in his sleeve.
He even broke his own brother’s arm so he gotta be a villain.
Maybe we’ll see other variants throughout the series. Telling YNegma what went wrong in their own timeline and ways he can prevent it. And each time he gets way more powerful towards the end when its their last stand against not Luke Cage.
That might turn out to be a different villain or some secret final boss working behind the scenes and not Luke Cage just happens to work for him til he betrays him. Or die trying.
The real villain turned out to be his own barber.
Did wonders for Thanos.
Became the best villain of the MCU.
