Strikeforce Morituri: Volumes 1-3 (2012)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
02.26.18

Strikeforce Morituri: Volumes 1-3 (2012) I remember this being a really odd series, unlike anything else Marvel Comics was producing at the time, in the late 1980's. It's an odd idea for a comic series, particularly one that is over thirty-years old. Aliens have attacked the Earth. They're extremely tribal and act more like animal scavengers, which makes sense because all of their technology is stolen from civilizations they've conquered. They are humanoid and have strange heads like they have scrotums dangling from their chins. Least to say, they are repulsive, worse than Star Trek's Ferengis.

To help fight them a scientist, Dr. Tuolema, has invented a process that gives humans superpowers. The drawback is that it also kills them within one year because a human body can't contain all that power. Still, young men and women volunteer to become a "Morituri", to save their planet. We get attached to some characters, only to have them unexpectedly perish. We also learn that the Earth government they serve is not that great-and that the people in charge may be extending this war on purpose, for economic gain. Some members uncover this conspiracy and even come across some failed Morituri experiments. In the second volume, the government transforms three murderous criminals into Morituri, primarily to keep the official group in line. The third volume finishes up the epic story-It's twenty-years later and Earth has divided back up into many different countries. And there's a street drug that kids are taking that give them powers.

All in all, this series is a downer, along the lines of STARSHIP TROOPERS, but it's a good read. Recommended.
