    Considering how many Marvel gods have died lately, it's interesting to see the themes Pak and Van Lente are laying out in this mini-series. Prince of Power sees one character trying to rescue a god, another trying to learn how to kill them, and a third uncovering the formula for becoming a god. I'm certainly curious to see how far the writers take their exploration of godhood. With any luck that exploration will persist beyond the four issues on tap here. I do miss Incredible Hercules, if only because it provided a nice, stable home for this ongoing saga. The creative team have made no secret that more is to come after Prince of Power. Hopefully the inner contents of the various series will continue to stay cohesive even as covers and titles change. Read Full Review

    This is a fun comic and caters to new readers. It is an easy read and serves as a good introduction into Marvel's upcoming Heroic Age story arc. While it was an entertaining read, I left not really caring about the characters and not really interested in what's in store for Amadeus Cho. Read Full Review
