On the one hand, this book is doing the whole parody of modern Britain schtick quite well.

On the other hand, this book spent a fair few of it's pages failing to convince me that the woman who obviously has some kind of resurrection-based superpower is actually dead.

A series about a UK superhero team has the potential to be an interesting departure from typical US-centric comics... or it has the potential to be a bunch of cheesy bollocks. And on the strength of this first issue, it might go either way. Will give it a go and see how it is.

But I will say, damn pretty though.

Meh. I liked "shades of gray" Doom we saw in Infamous Iron Man and at some points in this series, and I find the "saturday morning cartoon villain" Doom we see in most Fantastic Four comics boring (admittedly with plenty of entertaining grandiosity). This ending just cemented him as the later. A shame.
