2016 Comic Challenge 080 Squadron Supreme #02

TITLE-Squadron Supreme #02

So now the half the world is after our team of heroes. Nighthawk goes to do an investigation of a oil refinery. And finds there one of horse aliens from the old Power Pack series.

And we get a glimpse of the Squad's new base. Which just happens to be in the trench Atlantis was in.

Most of the issue is just build up. But that makes sense. We gotta have some stuff spelled out so we know what is possibly gonna happen soon.

Gotta say while I did enjoy this issue,it wasn't nearly as good as the first one. But it would be hard to top issue 1.

Squadron Supreme #02 gets a borrow.

2016 Comic Challenge 079 Squadron Supreme #01

TITLE-Squadron Supreme #01

I almost didn't bother getting this comic. Pretty much every story I have read with the Squadron Supreme since Grunwald died has been shit.

So it was a nice surprise to see a well written story with them. Now I didn't read all of Secret Wars,mostly cause I found it very boring. But I heard enough to understand some of the changes Marvel has done to their main universe.

So we got a team of various people from various realities. With the Marvel MAX version of Nighthawk,Blur from DP7 and they even got Princess Power from the Grunwald run.

Seems Namor destroyed the world this teams Dr Spectrum lived in. So now the entire team is out to get him. And they do a damn good job. First they distract Namor so Hyperion can raise Atlantis above the ocean floor. Then Hyperion ends up decapitating Namor.

I am assuming this will be the more pro-active team in this new Marvel Universe. And I love that they got Blur here. Plus bringing back the original Princess Power.

Squadron Supreme #01 gets a Buy.
