    The Strongmen of America kids are extremely annoying, and their panel time would have been better spent on the underused Weird Rider. Read Full Review

    An issue that's a little too steeped in Silver Age plot contrivances for my liking, as we have the insufferably cute Strongmen of America rushing into battle, and while Alan Moore does give this group a couple amusing lines, for the most part they're a rather irksome addition to what could've been a solid sci-fi adventure. The rest of the issue isn't much better though, as while Svetlana is a regular source of amusing off-color remarks, the rest of the cast comes across as rather dull & listless. Aside from his meeting with the highly cooperative Modular Man, Tom does little more than make the introductions, and offer up pep talks. Even Cole who came across as a fairly engaging character last issue is given very little to do, and as such he quickly fades into the background, as does the normally hard to ignore Tesla. However, the issue does end with a fairly nice cliffhanger, so here's hoping next issue gives everyone more to do. Read Full Review
