    Brandon is still underestimating his sister's capabilities, so she shows him exactly what she's about and unleashes power he's never seen. Quitely must've done a backflip jumping for joy when he saw what Millar had planned for these final pages, because ya boy goes ALL THE WAY IN on these panels! About a mile away from Chloe and Brandon's brawl to end it all, Hutch and Walter stand toe to toe. Hutch is obviously at the disadvantage only possessing his power rod, but Hutch aint never been no softy. Walter hits him with the Shadow Clone jutsu finishing move and it's kill or be killed for Hutch. Read Full Review

    Outright Geekery - Todd Fisher Jul 5, 2017

    Even with a 10 month delay this book offers a satisfying conclusion and sets up the next chapter to be called Jupiter's Requiem in 2019. Sigh, two years is that long right? I know I am hooked and am willing to wait those two years. There are few pairings that work so well together, Hitch and Millar, Lee and Kirby, Bendis and Bagley are just a few that comes to mind. What it really comes down to is Both Millar's writing and Quietly's art shine in this book. Read Full Review

    Jupiter's Legacy 2 #5 may have taken it's time in reaching comic book stands, but it definitely has proven well worth the wait. Giving us an exhilarating finale, the creative team produce a brutal battle between the megalomaniac heroes and former supervillains, leaving an interesting new direction moving forward.

    A solid ending that continues to showcase how Millar can tell fresh stories with super powered heroes. Read Full Review

    It's been so long since the last issue that I forgot a lot of details that probably would have helped this issue stand out more, but Frank Quitely's art makes it good enough. Of course it is a great looking issue, and it has an optimistic ending. At some point I'll probably reread all five issues in a sitting, which will probably make this instalment stand out a little more.

    Waited almost a year for an issue that features below average Quitely art and several pages that appear like he wasn't the artist.

    Mark Millar gets a one for his lackluster ending with zero twists! Incredibly disappointing. His endings are always disappointing. But Frank Quitely gets a ten for his fabulous art.
