    I want to like this book, as in terms of its cast, it's managed to litter its lineup with at least a half-dozen characters who I'm delighted to see back in the limelight. I also enjoy the idea that this book appears to be taking a more traditional approach to super-heroics, at least when one compares it to it's sister title. However, the simple truth of the matter is that while I'm prepared to embrace this title, Chuck Austen seems to feel the need to bog the entire book down with soap opera style plots, as we're inundated with overblown melodrama, and romances that seem to exist solely because two characters happen to be standing in the same room. This book is a bit like an exercise is pointless plot devices, as we have an abundance of ideas that seem to serve very little purpose other than the fact that they fill pages, and the main plot involving the werewolf threat is a complete nonstarter of an idea whose central premise is borderline goofy.
