It's tough enough being a mutant teenager, but imagine the challenges when you're  surrounded by role models driven wholly by power, money, and fame. Kelly, a.k.a. Stingray, finds herself the newest member of the League of Defenders, America's premiere super-team, and most dysfunctional "family."

    Stingray is definitely worth the read for any superhero fan! With the League of Defenders and all of their different and mesmerizing powers and with the mysterious motives of Stingray herself, it absolutely delivers both in story and in presentation. The artwork and organization of Stingrayoffers realistic styles and rich coloring. Readers will be buzzing with anticipation for more of Stingray due to Kelly's dark backstory and action!

    I'm interested to see how the story continues but hope they tone down the artwork justa bit as it's obvious thatthe intriguingplot can more than carry the book on its own merits. Read Full Review

    All in all, Indestructible: Stingray #1 doesn't shoot for heavy, thematic portrayals of characters, nor does it keep every aspect completely satisfying, but it provides a fun, banter-heavy team book that definitely gets the reader interested in the main series (which, if I'm correct, ended its second volume in December 2014). The art is overall pretty good, and the colors/letters top, which creates for a fun book that is definitely worth a pickup. Read Full Review

    Summary: Stingray #1 had flashes of brilliance from both the well-paced plot and art, but some hiccups held both sides back from creating a truly great #1 issue. However, theres still enough fun and intriguing plotlines here to make this comic a worthy addition to your pull list. Hopefully, if this series continues, the creators can reach the full potential they flashed throughout this book. Read Full Review

    Despite all its faults, Indestructible: Stingray #1 is a solid opening that lays a lot of the foundation for an interesting world, and the hopes of worthwhile characters to populate this world with. There's a lot of potential in this story, and if first time scribe Jeff Marsick can overcome his initial struggles to create a complex team of interesting personalities, he has a good enough structure in place from this issue to make Indestructible: Stingray a quality comic in the months to follow.

    Im reviewing this one-shot as a non-Indestructible reader and as such, the story appears to make sense to me. If this issue is true to the characters and elements of the world, such as the importance of publicity in the superhero world, Im looking forward to digging into even more Indestructible. However, it isnt perfect as I didnt really find myself getting very invested in Stingray since I was too busy enjoying everything else going on. There also is a cliffhanger ending, making this one-shot incomplete. I wish it was a mini-series rather than a one-shot so it could expand on the characters and story. But it was successful in that it makes me want to get into the universe of Indestructible. Read Full Review

    Indestructible fans will want to give this issue a look, but newcomers are better off gravitating towards the main series first. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - John F. Trent May 27, 2015

    Indestructible: Stingray #1 had flashes of great storytelling. Marsick's exploration of Stingray doesn't kick in until the very end. The beginning is very slow, introducing the League of Defenders and their base. Much of it seemed unnecessary to the story. Luca Reguzzoni's artwork, much like the story, had flashes of great work especially the opening scene as Stingray emerges from the water, but overall it was lackluster and struggled to capture facial expressions and emotions.
