    Again, to be fair, the story itself isn't screamingly painful. At least it isn't in the comic. If this were to have been presented as IDW's rebooted origin story, its focus on warheads and covert agents would have made for an average to slightly below average launching point. The nucleus of the tale is entirely adequate. The problem with this issue, which one could fairly use as a gauge for the validity of the film as well, is all the "stuff" that surrounds said story: goofy costumes, corny jokes, bombastic speeches and contrived romances. All of these things add up to a prolonged and universal rolling of the eyes that certainly doesn't bode well for the quality of the film itself. Read Full Review
