I wish there were a zero rating I could use for this atrocity of a hackneyed story. Not only are we tired of hero vs hero stories, the story of a controlled Captain America has been done before, not to mentioned the classic King Superman story among other stories revolving around the same concept of a hero gone totalitarian.

Secret Empire #1

How can the heroes of the Marvel Universe cope with this shattering betrayal by the most trusted figure among them? And what will this mean for the world? The map of the Marvel Universe...

I only review things I feel strongly about. I care about the Marvel universe just as much as I care about the DC one and I want them both to give me stories that move me. Too bad that in the last couple of years Marvel has only been "moving me" negatively. When they return to form, as before Secret Wars, then you'll see me positively reviewing the things I care about. For me, this is not a DC vs Marvel thing at all.

except at least Marvel are taking some risks, Cap isn't totally totalitarian....what makes this more impactful is Cap is willing to work together as council with villains he's vowed to stop before. The matters that the story itself deals with cap at the center are not only political but also on a social level. At times you have to ask if what Cap is doing is actually better for humanity and how wrong is he?

Bridging the New 52 Supes with the pre-flashpoint Supes using the red/blue Superman stories of past is not just clever but also inspired. Well done Jurgens, Tomasi and co. It's a nod to history and at the same time validates the existence of the New 52 Supes for those who followed his stories or were saddened by his death. The art is no less than amazing and any artist who can make silly old Mxy more

1.0

Poor Ben Riley. His fans have waited years upon years to see their hero come back. Dan Slott basically defecated all over his legacy, abruptly turning him into a cartoonish villain. This transition to villainy was poorly written. Had it been given the space to gestate, it may have been believable. As such, it comes across as plot over character, which has unfortunately become recurrent in Slott's more

This issue reads like Grant Morrison, Jonathan Hickman and Bryan Hitch had a threesome and gave us this baby. Time travel stories can be confusing for the non-pro comic readers so have a big cup of coffee by your side as you try to put the pieces together, mindless reading just will not do. Enjoyable for those who like to put pieces of a fractured story together. Recommended for the active reader. more

That's 2 for the art and the art alone. There is no real story here as we go from one tedious scene to another of hero groups fighting monsters (and yeah seems Bunn has forgotten that the X-Men are concomitantly fighting the Inhumans, guess they must have taken a break!) That pretty much sums up the story oh and yeah a twist (if you can call it that) pretty much revealed in the first page and tha more

Ever since Secret Wars, Peter Parker has been slowly becoming a background player barely being the star hero who saves the day even in his own book; The Clone Conspiracy 2 epitomizes this with other characters popping up and stealing the show. Peter is really not the star of the book nor does the character drive the Spider-book(s) anymore. If Spider-Man is what you are craving to read, move along, more

Hitch's main flaw in this series so far is that his villains lack any kind of character. They are barely fleshed and are mere entities that serve a particular plot purpose. Although I'm enjoying the overall feel, the league characters themselves and the budding romance, there are elements that should be fixed in this book.

This issue is written like a bad 90s comic. Multiple wordy pages filled with needless recap exposition. Plot construction is also rather lazy. SPOILER warning: Doctor Octopus knows of the New U technology, the hows and whens do not matter as this is an out of the blue deus ex machina device to get the plot from point A to point B. The clone saga is a despised element of Spidey's history that did more

I love a good ghost story and this one is intriguing and pretty close to perfection. Sara Vaughn's take on Boston Brand is spot on and Lan Medina kills it on art. Coloring by Jose Villarubia is what ties all nicely together. What an enjoyable read. The torture now is having to wait two months for the next installment.

While this chapter slows down to focus on the characters, it left me with a "hunh-what's-going-on?!!!" feeling. It was the same feeling I had with the conclusion of the first arc of the Rebirth-ed Justice League. Something tells me Hitch is building towards something that will only pay in the long run. While that might turn off some people, I'm sticking around. On the other hand, did Barry Allen j more

Dan Jurgens knows his Superman. This is a book full of 90s nostalgia and mirrors some of the elements of arguably some of Superman's most exciting and intriguing years. New fans will find plenty to enjoy as well. Jurgens cleverly answers the question of who this new Clark is, yet deepens the mystery even further. It is quite obvious that by answering the question of where this Clark and Doom came more

The novelty of seeing Spider-Man and Deadpool together is quickly wearing off revealing how slow the plot is in this series. We are nine issues deep and the writer has barely scratched the surface of what is going on. Are we supposed to completely forget that Deadpool killed Parker and ridiculously brought him back to life? (only in comicbooks folks). The whole issue is one page after another of p more
