Well, this was pretty good, my favourite "Champions" in a few issues. I liked the cab ride with Viv and the driver, and the Red Locust was entertaining enough, though I thought of "Kick Ass" for some reason. I kind of groaned when I saw that she will probably join the team as a permanent member, but, okay, whatever.

For this issue Viv runs away because she was grounded and meets new character Red Locust (Fernanda). The character seems to be another smart, optimistic and bubbly young girl much like Wasp, Ms Marvel or Lunetta, but where she differs is in the interesting backstory behind her hero. Much like the Phantom it is a mantle that is passed down from generation to generation to the oldest son with a spec more

A new fighter has enter the ring. And she's lucha-tastic!!!! I'm going to love the new Champion, she's smart, honorable and adorable!!! I'm also super happy to see Viv in action more. She is a very interesting character and I'm glad Waid took an opportunity to highlight her more. Ramos's art really can't do no wrong. A nice easy breezy fun issue.

Not everybody is PC. Some people are still stuck in this archaic mindset that your color makes you superior over others. And it's more than you think. I really hope that Wilson pulls this story off right. It could mean a lot in getting people to see that everyone deserves fair treatment.

I have to say that this has one of the most generic covers ever, at least when paired with the story inside. Ms Marvel goes up against a former team-mate when she was working for Captain Marvel during the second super hero Civil War who has come back now working for Hydra. This is one of the better ways to tie-in to the Secret Empire without actually being tied in so I have to give the writer majo more

Torn on this one. Great to see so many characters - definitely plenty of bang for your buck. But Duke's mom part of a grand scheme? There were a few things that seemed like forced Easter eggs. Spinning the wheel of (albeit great) artists within one book is personally always a little meh. Excited for Metal/meh start.

Classic tom king writing and this is probably my favourite batman issue of his run. This does a great job of picking up after the button story and tie into what happened in the button.

The narrative plays out as a retrospective conversation between Claire and Bruce as they discuss why they choose to be heroic. In light of all that has transpired in Kings run taking a breath to process what the path forward should be is a nice reprieve. This issue is mostly exposition so it's not as action packed as what has preceded, nonetheless the actions taken by the caped crusader will be in more

Wow. Regardless of whether I liked the big plot development, I loved that Bruce allowed Claire to really dig into why and what he is as Batman. This is the best use of multiple artists I have seen in a while - they play off of one another perfectly. Without any real action, it was still heart-pounding stuff. Great way to make a single issue not a throw-away. Can't wait to see what happens during a more
