    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Nov 7, 2002

    A cute story that manages to have some fun with a look at a lower-rung super-villain struggling to live a normal life, when the only thing he's proven a success at is being a punching bag for every super-hero he's ever encountered. I've always been partial to the lower-tier villains in comics, as while Doctor Doom & Magneto excite the fans, the comic relief that's provided by losers like Stilt-Man & Batroc the Leaper is also important to the big picture, as the big guns wouldn't be nearly as impressive, if every villain was able to hold their own against the super-heroes. This issue also has a nice buddy feel to it, as we see the Grizzly finds the table scraps that the world leaves him are being gobbled up by the Rhino, and as the issue progresses we see him start to realize that misery loves company. In fact if Christopher Priest hadn't done such a good job of making the Man Ape into a viable threat, I'd be suggesting him for membership in this league of animal based loser villains.
