Since I haven't read the first issue, I can't say for certain this is the case but presumably this issue exists to lay out the basic groundwork for how the Metallix group came to be, and how the creator of the mysterious compound that makes up the suit turned into a raging villain. As far as the formation of the team is concerned, this issue doesn't really offer up anything all that impressive, as basically we get a look at the four involved in their various jobs, and then they are approached by man looking to recruit their services. We also see an early sign of teamwork involving the four as they escape from a rather simple trap that had been set in place by the villain. As for the creation of this series' main villain, the character is a bit too over the top right from the start, so it's a bit difficult to really buy into this villain, as one is left to wonder who such a mentally unstable individual was able to make such an astounding discovery.

I have stopped reading Doctor Who novels when the first ten pages did not involve me, and this zero issue of the comic book commits one of the BBC's cardinal and signature sins. The protagonist does not immediately appear. There is no indication that the actual villain of the piece is not going to be the hero or the book's center. Fortunately, things do change.
