The cast of The Olympians superhero movie franchise has been asked to save the world. It can't end well.

    AiPT! - Nick Nafpliotis May 7, 2014

    Overall, both the good and bad news is that we have no idea where this story is going. That makes the narrative feel unsteady, but it's also a sign that what we're reading won't follow the path that everyone (myself included) was expecting. Read Full Review

    Comic Booked - David Hinspeter May 7, 2014

    I will say this for Real Heroes, for a comic built entirely on clichs and a relatively common concept; it is becoming more and more entertaining. The familiar and new feel of the world, costumes, powers, and characters is really working for this story, which is surprising considering that same feel suffocated the first issue. Also, the nonchalance of Brainchild is an excellent and organic angle for the character. Real Heroes pulled itself out of gutter and made sure I'd be pulling it again, in a few weeks.

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward May 6, 2014

    All in all, this is a steady and decent second issue. With the right focus, this could be a very intelligent series or, at the very least, prove to be a fun little romp with plenty of meta-references to the current state of superheroes. Either way, there's definitely an audience. Read Full Review

    Capeless Crusader - Asaph Bitner May 6, 2014

    Real Heroesis a comic book with a big premise, and treated correctly it just might produce a great series. But as of “Real Heroes #2″, the characters are annoying, the dialogue feels strange and forced, and the story doesn't seem to be leading us anywhere that makes sense. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 8, 2014

    Real Heroes is taking an awfully long time to get to the point for a comic that's essentially the superhero version of Galaxy Quest. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Michael Moccio May 8, 2014

    For a story that had so much potential, it's more than a little disappointing that writer Bryan Hitch opts to have characters take to the background as the heavily inundated plot takes precedence. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kevin Beckham May 8, 2014

    The look of the book is fine. Its Bryan Hitch so it's very hard for anything he draws to be ugly. The man is a talent without a doubt. He might just need more time honing his craft when it come to the narrative. Oh and I'm calling the Smitty swerve right now. Read Full Review
