3 out of 5 Stars
This was your typical ‘hit by a meteor and get super powers’ comic… been there, done that. The characters were ones we’d met before.
The rich guy recruiting them and running the show who recruits the others into a group,
the girl who has her life turned upside down with her new powers causing her to lose love,
and the jilted lover with the bad past…
it was fairly run of the mill. The art was really well done, I like that gritty older style of it being detailed, but at the same time simple (more focus on a background with the face of the person less detailed, or vice versa) it really brought your focus where it belonged.
The actual dealings with the meteor and what happened to cause them was the highlight of the read and I would be interested to check out more for that, but the story itself has definitely been done before.
Incidentals is Best Served With
I know, I know… Mixed superheroes… and not even superheroes with the same origin story!! But, Superman being shot to Earth and the Meteor being shot to Earth just made me think of this! And I invented this one myself from Superman’s colours in his uniform!! Red, Blue, Yellow and White
