    The visitor isn't Michael Meyers or worse Joel Schumacher. Instead, Mr. David introduces Anita's father's superior at A.P.E.S. The bearer of bad news, he also gives Anita the clue she needs to find her dad and starts the plot. Mr. David builds the characterization for six pages before introducing the plot. Rather than hammer home the story in a blinding blow, he gently takes the reader's hand and shows her the characters. He leaves the reader to get to know the characters and decide whether or not she will like the character, and then and only then, does he embroil the cast in adventure that changes the mood of this usually light series.

    With the Captain Marvel contest, and the rumored return of the pre-Crisis Supergirl grabbing the attention for Peter David's other titles, this book seems to have been lost in the shuffle, and with both "Impulse" & "Superboy" getting the ax, one does have to be concerned about this book's future. However, this issue has me eyeing the ever looming 50th issue, as this opening issue certainly gets the "Fighting Maad" arc off to an explosive start. Based on this first chapter it's quite easy to believe that this is going to be a fairly grim & gritty affair, and here's hoping that when the dust settles this book has undergone a fairly major status quo shaking, as while I've enjoyed the previous issues, lately the book has felt a like it was a bit desperate for ideas. A membership change-up, some tension within the ranks, and maybe even a shocking death, or two are exactly what this book needs, and based on this issue, it certainly looks like all three are entirely possible.
