    Captain Future is the other "hero" that returns in Project Superpowers. He makes Hal Jordan look like a feminist. Seriously. Captain Future has a repellent mind and Salazar and Ramones present him with a matching grotesqueness. Imagine an eternally greasy body builder who flexes all the time, and you have Captain Future. The more intriguing Truth and Dare deal with the self-proclaimed super-hero, and they leave the book on a tantalizing cliffhanger. Read Full Review

    Fans of the first series and three minis will, no doubt, enjoy this issue, which picks up right where those stories left off. Everyone else may have a bit of work ahead of them, but the core ideas here are solid and may lead somewhere interesting. Read Full Review

    Edgar Salazar's art boasts a pseudo-realistic super-hero style that suits the darker, conspiracy-theory tone of the story fairly well. There really aren't any visuals in this issue that pop, that really grab the reader. The colors are quite dark as well, and understandably so. Still, given that these characters represent a different time and culture in America (both in the context of the story and metatextually), it's a shame that's not reflected a bit more visually with some brighter colors. Doug Klauba's art for the two-page 'Devil origin in the back of the issue is more striking, but it's also very much in keeping with Alex Ross's style. Unfortunately, it also fails to provide any extra information about the supposedly new incarnation of the Golden Age hero. Read Full Review
