Domino #2

The second issue of Gail Simone's Domino picks up with our heroine in mid-air having be flung from her apartment to her death. Luckily, a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man swings by just in time to save Domino from leaving her mark all over a San Francisco sidewalk. A step-up from the first issue, Domino #2 explains a bit more of who our villains are and why they have shown up to wreck Domino's life.

The idea of a character who takes the brunt of all of Domino's good luck and needing to balance the scales certainly makes for a villain with a very personal motive. Topaz's ability to screw with mutant powers (either turn them off, short-circuit them, or throw them into overdrive) also presents an unique challenge for Domino.

Apparently I didn't have to worry so much about Domino's gal-pals, as from the end of this issue it doesn't look like they'll be sticking around that long. While Domino appears to have plenty of friends, including Amadeus Cho and Deadpool who both have nice cameos here, it looks like it's up to Domino to put things right. Worth a look.
