The review of Disney+’s latest Marvel series, ‘Echo’, acknowledges that while it may not be the most exciting show, it is still fresh and a strong addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). The limited five-part series introduces viewers to Maya Lopez, also known as Echo, who was first introduced in the ‘Hawkeye‘ series.
In ‘Echo’, Maya returns to her home in Oklahoma with a plot for revenge against Kingpin. The show is described as groundbreaking and attempts to break new ground within the MCU. However, the review points out that it falls into a pattern seen in recent Marvel movies by becoming locked into an underwhelming groove from which it cannot break free.
Despite this critique, the review suggests that ‘Echo’ is still a good series overall and accomplishes what it sets out to do. It highlights Alaqua Cox‘s portrayal of Maya/Echo as particularly persuasive in her transition from antagonist to protagonist. The core motive driving Maya’s actions in her hero/villain origin story is the loss of her family members, which adds depth and complexity to her character.
