Outstanding issue, the first of the series where I can say I genuinely enjoyed it and could see why Omega Men is so critically acclaimed. The fight between the princess and Tigorr and Scrapps is easily one of the best fight scenes King has ever wrote, something he’s never excelled at. Phenomenal art as well and I loved the last second plot twost

Morrison gives his own spin of the classic Superman: Red Son, but Superman is a Nazi instead of a Communist. The art is good, but Mastermen isn’t much different than Red Son, and in a straight comparison, Red Son is far, far superior to this issue. Biggest letdown of Multiversity so far

These types of one-and-done stories were the norm for comic’ early decades, but they’ve become a rarity nowadays.
