    Jonathan Lau and Ivan Nunes make the Terror an attractive read, and they also grant spectacle to the proceedings. The Crusader revenants glide silently out of the night. The attacks against the Terror are violent yet graceful and weirdly in sync to further denote a robotic group mind. In the last volume of the series, the Terror acquired a cutlass with some history, and Lau and Nunes delight in making the Terror a modern day pirate, slashing steel against the sepulchral.

    Major Spoilers - Stacy Baugher Nov 10, 2009

    I skipped out on the series when it was still just a mini. I saw Black Terror in Project: Superpowers and was not overtly impressed with his characterization. It was just another powerful, angry guy in a dark suit with a skull, and other than one or two moments, I just was not grabbed by him. He almost seemed to be a one trick pony. With this "first" issue of the ongoing series has changed my opinion. A big complaint about the Project: Superpowers Universe is that there are too many background characters running around and doing nothing; that problem is solved with this issue. Phil Hester focuses on Black Terror and his new mission, and gives the character unsuspecting depth that escaped him when he was part of a larger ensemble. I am going with 4.5 out of 5 stars. Now that we have seen what can be done with the right writer, this series might just set a new standard for the PS Universe. Read Full Review
