Mass Effect: Evolution #2

A new series featuring the origin of our galaxy's most mysterious powerbroker --The Illusive Man!

This issue took the characters to two settings not yet seen in comics: Arcturus Station, and the planet Illium. We also meet Saren, Desolas' brother, and a very important figure in the game.

With this issue, the theme of science and magic being interchangeable as described in Arthur C. Clarke's third law, moves to the fore. The Clarke reference, suggested to me by the naming of the artifact in the series, seemed like something Jack Harper would naturally know about.

We also got to see that Jack had many new powers, including the ability to use languages he hadn't known before. It all came from contact with the artifact.

 

  • The resignation of General Williams, referred to in the game, is actually shown here — or, rather, we see the decision being made.
