Superpowers #0: Project Superpowers is Back! Written by Rob (Suicide Squad) Williams, illustrated by Sergio (Swords of Sorrow, Superman) Davila, and featuring an all-star roster of cover artists, this introductory priced issue is the perfect starting point for the most ambitious superhero story of 2018.
An all-new threat faces the Earth, while the team faces turmoil from within and must overcome all obstacles to prove their worth and value in a world that desperately needs its heroes. The Death Defying Devil, Samson, Black Terror, Masquerade, Green Lama, Scarab and more are all here as the adventure begins again.
Featuring an introductory story leading right into the all-new #1 next month, Project Superpowers #0 is action-packed and introductory priced. Includes bonus materials and 16 pages of original story.
Disclaimer – I am currently involved with Antarctic Press and their Public Domain/Superverse line that involved reviving a lot of the same characters the Project Superheroes.
This is a 0 issue so it is very much all intro and not much of anything else. The book is very much trying to setup a grand epic that will be occurring with the new batch of books for Project Superheroes. This is the 3rd volume of Project Superpowers in the last 10 years.
This book does rely on what has come before but does explain it quickly enough, so you are caught up and then can follow the impending doom the book is trying to set up. The trope of trying to change the future is a bit tired here so it doesn’t really do anything to enhance the build up they are going for.
The art is good and works fine for the story. It’s a bit more of a modern style for these classic characters but again it works fine.
Honestly unless you’re a fan of the previous comic or the characters, I don’t see this issue making you a big fan. That said for a dime (a play off of the old pricing for the characters’ comics back in the 1940s) it doesn’t hurt to give it a try if you like a superhero story.
I give it a 3 out of 5.
