    Comics Bulletin - Ray Tate Apr 4, 2008

    The incident involving Death-Defying Devil could have been written for any generic hero, but the creative team make it intrinsic to the character. Angry at his imprisonment, he looks at Paris turned into a lawless third world country and acts to change things. When he raises his boomerang, it's a moment of classically depicted heroism.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Apr 8, 2008

    Project Super Powers #2 was another strong read. Krueger and Ross continue to impress me with their hard work on this title. While The Twelve continues to be a dull, dry and uninspired read, Project Super Powers has provided an enjoyable ride. I would certainly recommend giving this title a try. It offers up such a balanced story that it should appeal to a broad cross section of readers. Read Full Review

    IGN - Eric Sunde Apr 2, 2008

    I've enjoyed the story so far, but I have had a harder time becoming invested in the characters than I have in similarly themed books like Agents of Atlas and The Twelve. It also seems as if there's a significant amount of backstory that I'm missing and by the looks of things, will likely not get told by the time this miniseries ends. I look forward to seeing how big this cast of characters gets before all is said and done, but I hope the storyline can expand and develop to make me have feelings about some of these characters, good or bad.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Apr 7, 2008

    I'm hoping this series rights itself back on course. It doesn't hurt much when you start a series from issue #1 and it's a crappy book. But when you start a series off as spectacularly as this one did and hit a rock with the storyline, well, it's a complete downer. Carlos Paul and Alex Ross deliver the goods on art, once again – no complaints there. But this story needs a fixing. Read Full Review

    An exciting and well-executed third instalment. This comic book is really strong, and each issue appears to be delivering on the core concept. The writing and art are both of a very high standard and complement each other well. Having set out their stall in #0, the creative team continue in the same form and style.
