    The overall result is a fun mini-series with a refreshing premise and a strong creative team that deserves to be given a chance by anyone whos ever rooted for the bad guys. Read Full Review

    The bottom line is this is a fun, carefree, and therefore rare comic book, and Van Lentes script is full of enough levity and winning characterization to insure a pleasant comic reading experience, we should all enjoy the ride while it lasts. Read Full Review

    So were off to a shaky start. A good concept marred by faulty execution. We havent been introduced to the entire cast, and the details of the plot havent been revealed. However, the basic premise is still intact. We do get interesting and sometimes human character studies of four villains. If Fred Van Lente can do the same for the rest of the cast (and bring in as many characters as the title suggests), the whole story might be worth the price. For now, Im taking a wait-and-see attitude. Read Full Review

    My only real complaint about this issue is that this is clearly just a set-up for the full limited series. I recently pretty much switched over to reading TPBs only, mainly due to comics like this one. Super-Villains Team-Up #1 is very entertaining, but its just a stage setter, almost a prologue for the action that will be coming. I wish Marvel would bite the bullet with comics like this and just publish them as original graphic novels. Its inevitable that this will be collected, so whats the point of cluttering up comic shop shelves with comics like this one? Read Full Review

    I had high hopes for this story; MODOK is one of Marvels craziest character concepts, one Ive been fond of since I was a child, and based on the premise of this series, I was looking forward to something that properly played up the absurdity of the character while delivering a fun crime caper. Perhaps thats to come in subsequent issues, but the first chapter of MODOKs 11 is definitely more bland than fun. Read Full Review
