If you don’t know what’s going on in Felicia Hardy’s world during this King In Black Marvel Event, I suggest you check out my previous Black Cat Recap.
Now that we’re all caught up, you know that Felicia touched the magic wand that Doctor Strange was going to use to defeat the symbiote army, however since Doctor Strange was incapacitated Felicia decided to do it herself.
This issue finds Felicia trapped in a dark room with Black Fox, her father’s mentor, or rather, a dude who has taken on the shape of Black Fox? She believes that after she touched the wand she died, but Fox assures her this isn’t true.
He goes on to tell her that he is old magic and basically he’s there to see if she’s worthy of the power she’s now holding.
Back in the real world she’s basically on autopilot, or as I like to call it, “being blacked out from overconsumption.”
Or at least that’s the only time I’ve had that experience. I’ve never touched an Asgardian wand. But I do know what I’m going to call going out to get drunk from now on.
So Felicia is all “I need to get back” and Fox is all “Come walk through this weird chess room with me.”
Felicia heads back and forth from the Asgardian body to the Magic Box or whatever the thing is that she is in, and she kills some symbiote dragons. I can explain this by coming to from a black out, or if you watch Always Sunny in Philadelphia, then it’s called “browning out”
Fox decides to test her and find out her vulnerabilities and it goes like this:
Fox: When did you feel most vulnerable?
Black Cat: When my mom told me my dad died, but he was just in jail. So she a lyin’ ass hoe.
BC: Yeah rude af. But I guess that was hard on her?
Fox: But mostly hard on you, right? Like when Doc Ock fucked up your shit?
BC: Yeah that sucked.
Doctor Strange then wakes us from his coma and he’s like she touched it? GOD DAMMIT! Meanwhile Asgardian Black Cat is still mercin’ all these hoes.
Felicia and Fox continue their “deep” conversation.
Fox : You needed power, Spider-Man showed you that. But no one would give you power except King Pin
Black Cat: Yeah. I know, idiot. I was there.
Fox: Look at all these people who beat you up.
BC: This is annoying, shut up.
Fox: Are you ready to say yes to ultimate power?
BC: Depends on what I get.
Fox: Your family back together
Fox: Power to kill all your enemies.
BC: Cool, cool.
Fox: All your former lovers will love you again.
BC: Those fucking nerds? Hell no! Fuck you I don’t want it!
One of her nerds catches her from the sky and then Doctor Strange is all “wtf.”
And Black Cat is all “I almost took it all, but I really didn’t wanna touch Spider-Man’s peen again.”
Of course it does end there, a bunch of symbiotes dragons are flying towards them.
Felicia asks Doctor Strange to magic her buddies out of there because all she wants is her nerds to be safe. They get teleported away to safety and Felicia and the Doctor get ready to fight some symbiotes.
AND THAT’S THAT!
Their story continues in King in Black #4!
