    There's plenty to enjoy about "Squadron Supreme 2" #1 without thinking about all of these layers of meaning. It's a story about government conspiracies and strange superhumans. And it's got more than its fair share of Nick Fury, which is never a bad thing. If you felt like Straczynski's version of the Squadron stumbled and then finally collapsed in the lead-up to "Ultimate Power," as I did, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by what Chaykin's doing here. He's revitalized it, but not in the way I expected. Read Full Review

    Regardless, I don't think I care enough about this new scenario and these new characters to care about the mysterious cliffhanger at the end. It's not poorly done, by any means, and your mileage may vary with the new characters. As for me, I'd have preferred to read something this creative team could put together for the MAX line, instead.

    I really don't know what to say about this issue other than I was a bit baffled by this new direction. JMS did a phenomenal job of riffing on the DC archetypes while also making them unique additions to the Marvel family, even if they occupied a completely separate universe. By first infecting (and yes, I realize that's a harsh word) the SS universe with Ultimate Marvel characters and then abandoning the clear DC archetypes, it looks like this book may have lost its identity and purpose. And I'd have a far easier time giving Chaykin the benefit of the doubt if his twists on Marvel archetypes were at all interesting. And they're not. Read Full Review
