    Like the Challengers and the Sea Devils, the Metallix Team are distinctly characterized and fit specific functions. The team carry out detailed missions, and their less than mercenary attitude makes them more welcome in the arena of extraordinary adventurers. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Jul 18, 2003

    A fairly enjoyable issue that is hampered by the simple fact that I've been reading comic for over two decades, and as such I was able to see the various plot twists well in advance of their actual arrival in the story. Now the story is a well constructed affair, as we move from A to B with a nice sense of clarity, and there's a couple fairly exciting moments to be found, as we see a member of the cast is stranded with the suit at the bottom of a volcano, while the other find themselves facing an advancing group of trigger-happy goons. The idea that one of our cast members is unwilling to kill is also nicely handled, though the exchange where the more offensive minded member of the group gets on his case in the final pages of the issue was a bit overblown. The book does make pretty solid use of its villain though, as the character is a fairly cool customer, who is not to be trusted, and the inexperience of our heroes would explain why they were so easily manipulated.
