    A fairly exciting issue in that it killed off one of our lead characters, and while it's a little early in the game for this shocking death to have much emotional impact, it does act to show us that this book is willing to kill off members of it's cast, and this in turn will add a measure of danger to all their future missions. The big, bad villain of this story is Max Krome, who makes for a pretty solid combination of two super-villain types, as he makes for a pretty effective opponent in combat with his evil version of the Metallix suit, but his scientific genius also has him engaging in some actions that are normally only practiced by mastermind style villains. The issue moves along at a nice brisk pace as well, as every single page manages to accomplish something, whether it be the testing scene that gives us a good look at the suit's flight capabilities, or the highly charged fight scene, which offers up some fairly intense moments where it's clear our heroes are in tough.
