    Honestly, the notion of introducing a new Power Man interested me about as much the prospect of somebody introducing a new Razorback, so the fact that Van Lente and Asrar actually make this debut as good as it was is doubly-accomplished. I've really been surprised with the quality of all these Shadowland tie-ins, so far, and this is actually the best of the bunch. Read Full Review

    This mini-series is a sleeper, I didn't expect much of it, but it really confounded those expectations and ended up being far more interesting and enjoyable than I would have initially expected. I can't wait to see what comes next, and see what the connection between Cage and the new Power Man ends up being. Highly Recommended! Read Full Review

    It's almost a shame that this book is tied so directly to Shadowland, because it simply reinforces the notion that it's another spin-off, rather than a stand-alone story introducing a new hero. One must assume that Marvel know best how to promote their books, but had I not chosen to review it, there's no chance I'd have picked up this book and given it a chance at all, purely because I wouldn't normally buy spin-offs. I could, of course, be in a minority, but the constant talk of crossover fatigue makes me question whether that's truly the case. Like "Daughters of the Shadow", this is a strong book, and one that makes me care enough to come back -- and that's a rare thing for one, let alone two crossover spin-offs to do. Read Full Review
