With great power... comes great corruption. Superheroes are real. They walk the earth as gods among men. But the fairy tales of them protecting mankind and being heroes were all lies. Humans have become their slaves, fit only to serve their super powered masters. But in man the nature of the true hero still survives...and one group rises up to challenge their self-appointed masters. Can they hope to succeed or will their opposition only push mankind closer to extinction.

    Overall this issue exceeds at being able to make the story feel like it just drops us into this massive conflict due to its fast paced plot, but it also leaves you with enough questions to come back for more. Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Kevin Given Jul 26, 2016

    This is an exciting fast paced introduction to a series that has potential. In addition to the destruction in New York by the Ultra-man knock off we see the other super-powered beings wreaking havoc in other areas before coming together by the end of the issue. We also get glimpses of characters whom I'm assuming will become the heroes of mankind in the series. One of those possible heroes is a Dr. Paul who's warning other people, namely Cecilia to "get to the base." because he rightly deduces that the destruction will continue in other areas of the globe. The good doctor by the end of this issue discovers a place that he didn't expect to still be standing. To be continued. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Richard Gutierrez Aug 3, 2016

    E.V.I.L. Heroes seems to be unfolding as expected where those drunk by power show that they are the superiors to those without any defense. However, this first issue has too much action to give us any clear understanding as to the true intentions of this team. While we may assume that their goal will be as audacious as their powers, the growing intensity may soon burn itself out if the battle becomes too lopsided. Hopefully the playing field will quickly become leveled in the next issue, otherwise, this book will become too ambitious for its own good. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Aug 3, 2016

    With this book, Zenescope are showing readers that they can do more than salacious covers and fairy tales both Grimm and not so Grimm. If this I means to get more recognition for their books, then I am a little disappointed that they have chosen to make the stand in such a facsimile manner. Read Full Review

    This title is a one-trick pony, and is best served by its brevity. I hope Zenescope doesnt try to drag out the series for more than five issues. Read Full Review

    Fingers crossed that this becomes something special, especially since the concept is intriguing. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Steven Phillips Aug 3, 2016

    “Yo, what if the good guys were the bad guys?” asked someone, apparently. Well, thankfully, that question has been answered… many times, by better books, and with more subtlety than what we see here. E.V.I.L. Heroes is a premise wandering through decently illustrated pages of destruction in search of a point. I had middling hopes for this book based on the high concept presented by the title. And while I'm certain someone will find some satisfaction in yet again watching villainous versions of valiant heroes, I'm just bored by it. Read Full Review
