Lost and alone in a world they only knew as fiction, the cast of The Olympians movies are beginning to realize things aren’t easy when fantasy is made reality. The dangers are all too real and it might mean their deaths when Brainchild and Brute come to defeat the world’s greatest heroes.

    Holy cow! The obvious parallels of Real Heroes compared to Galaxy Quest end in the high concept. I love the fact that by wearing the Olympians' outfits, the heroes actually gain their powers. The theatricality of Brainchild and his supposed rival Smitty is interesting considering the Brainchild's words. I wonder who the big bad is that had the Olympians killed. Finally, the social discord surrounding the Patriot has some really interesting repercussions. This issue blew all of my expectations out of the water and I just can't wait to see what happens next month. Read Full Review

    I did think that the way the Fauxlympians got their powers was a bit contrived, but whatever"the rest of the issue makes up for it. Read Full Review

    There are more developments in the story from the characters back on earth after they split up such as Olympian surviving and then retreating to his Home to find a nice surprise. Two of the others acclimatising to their new powers and lastly we have The Patriot hitting up a bar getting into a fight. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - Edward Jun 10, 2014

    All in all it's not a bad issue, but it is very obviously getting from point A to B. Many readers won't mind this, so long as the ride is fun, in which case this is worth a read. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jun 14, 2014

    Real Heroes #3 has a compelling premise, and there are hints of something new and different in this issue, but there are simply too many characters in play for any to fully grab our attention, and the extensive decompression makes it hard work to stay invested in the issue. Read Full Review
