    HEROES REBORN #2 doesn't disappoint. It's mysterious, imaginative, and incredibly easy to read. It's gripping and oftentimes made me feel a part of the narrative. The illustrations are dramatic and vibrant and help provide a solid balance to the story. Plus, there really is something for everyone in this series. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 12, 2021

    Heroes Reborn #2continues to explore the world of the new Marvel Universe, this time through the eyes of the Squadron Supreme. The next issue looks to take a similar approach with the super-sonic Blur, who is modeled after the Flash; I'm intrigued to see how Aaron, McGuinness, and co. handle this character. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 12, 2021

    Aaron is doing a great job establishing this world, its stakes and its challenges. I like the fact that it isn't being drawn out and the conflicts are coming organically through the story. After showcasing Hyperion in the first story, the second part does a great job of bringing the reader into the drama of what is going to happen next. McGuinness' art is fantastic and his use of perspective is amazing. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke May 12, 2021

    Heroes Reborn kicks off its second issue with a focused narrative on Hyperion. This issue is like a good alternate take on Superman, right down to some winks and nods to the reader you'll most certainly get. As a single issue, it's a touch light on plot progression and Hyperion isn't the most complex of characters, but as a chapter in a bigger story, it keeps your interest and helps convey how this kind of hero doesn't work in the Marvel universe.

    Comic Watch - Jimmy Hayes May 12, 2021

    A really good issue that moves the story along, but at the same time stops to take a look at the current status quo of what's going on in the world. Sets things up the moves them around. Enjoyable story and enjoyable art. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Christopher Rondeau May 12, 2021

    Heroes Reborn provides a unique perspective on the Marvel World by taking out the Avengers. This issue shows us a bit about Hyperion and his misguided point of view. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Ja-Quan Greene May 13, 2021

    Aaron, and artists Ed Mcguinness and Dale Keown, do make for an intriguing issue #2 overall. Diggin the artwork by Mcguiness and Keown. The fight sequences prominently feature characters tossin hands and the panels with city and landscapes contain enough detail. Aaron provides quite the backstory as to why major villains like Galactus haven't taken over the planet or epic threats like Wanda haven't destroyed the heroes of this world. Aaron also has a blast with the liberties he's able to take with turning some heroes or allies into villains. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 12, 2021

    Heroes Reborn #2 isn't a bad comic at all. It just doesn't feel like the “main event”. The stories feel like either slivers of an issue's worth of storytelling or they feel like something that'd normally be relegated to a tie-in. It's not bad at all but like the debut, it feels a bit like a throwback in some ways. Overall, not bad and will work when read all-together, but on its own, it's a bit of ho-hum. Read Full Review

    To be kind of blunt, Heroes Reborn #2 reads like a DC comic, but not in a good way. Read Full Review

    "Heroes Reborn" #2 struggles to connect with readers due to a derivative premise and poor execution. Read Full Review
