    This story felt rushed right from the beginning. I feel that if they stretched this story out to another issue, it wouldve worked. I was intrigued with the mystery in the beginning, but lost all interest when I learned the identity of the murderer only a couple of pages later. It was a great premise that had so much potential to create a newfound villain for the team. A little girl with powers to manifest things from the internet to kill those on Earth intrigued me. Sure, it may have been nothing new, but it wouldve been distinctive to everything else thats out there now. They couldve kept the character to explore how she was able to get such power, but this is simply wishful thinking on my part. Instead, they jam packed this story into one issue and the revelation in the end simply seemed like a cop out. Is this a book I recommend you pick up? Only if youre feeling nostalgic.

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Aug 22, 2012

    Malin's art is the strongest part of this book. Without Liefeld co-penciling this issue, Malin could really implement a style that felt more comfortable to him. Rather than being a straight up Liefeld copy, Malin proves he has some artistic chops in this issue, which has featured his strongest work in this series. I hope for the sake of the book that Malin is left to his own devices more often, if for no other reason than to keep this title interesting. Read Full Review

    By no means is this a bad comic, it just doesn’t achieve the potential of the interesting characters that make up the superhero group. Read Full Review
