    Devil's Reign: Superior Four #1 is a great start that'll have Doc Ock fans thirsty for more. As a reader who loved Superior Spider-Man, it's an easy recommendation as the creative team clearly understands the character. Revel in this series as it knows an ego can be a beautifully fun thing.

    If you read the solicits this comic could sound weird bordering on gimmicky. More often than not a character gets used in story because they weren't being used elsewhere. That is far from the case here. If the comparison between Otto and a member of the Four's extended cast didn't exist before today, it does now. It will be interesting to read how Otto fares against one of him who will always view him as “Inferior”. Good thing he has a team of him now. Because in order to get back being “Superior” he will first have to be “Fantastic”. Read Full Review

    THE DISPATCHTell me if you heard this one before? Guy goes across the multiverse sniffing out variants of himself. Well, if you've recently seen LOKI on Disney Plus, Jonathan Hickmans AVENGERS and FANTASTIC FOUR runs, as well as the movie by Jet Li called THE ONE, then the premise should sound familiar. So, is that basically whats happening in DEVILS REIGN: SUPERIOR FOUR? Not quite. There is more to it under the surface with even more wrinkles to wet your whistle in order to make this series super interesting. However, it does provide the backdrop for the title with a few creative twists. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer Jan 10, 2022

    Devil's Reign: Superior Four #1 is a comic that has many more smarts and much more fun than it has any right to. Don't let its tie-in status fool you - this is a highly enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Zach B. Jan 19, 2022

    An ambitious entry into the relatively small-scale Devil's Reign event. More diversity with the Otto variants would be helpful, but for now the unique character designs overshadow the static characterizations. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 1, 1970

    Devils Reign: Superior Four #1 is a bizarre comic. On the one hand, it is a very fun, character-driven story. However, there appears to be no connection to Devils Reign at all. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau Jan 13, 2022

    Superior Four #1 does not feel like a Devil's Reign comic book and instead does its own thing. Read Full Review

  • 5.0 - Chase Magnett Jan 12, 2022

    It's unclear exactly what the stakes or consequences of this adventure are, or even Otto's goals. That results in a debut detached from Devil's Reign and uncertain of its own focus. Read Full Review
