I think this is the last Mark Millar project I’m going to try. He keeps putting out books with great artists that sound interesting and get accolades, but they don’t work for me. For one thing, they’re so mean-spirited. Everyone is out for themselves and violently cruel about it, or is a victim of those who are. There’s no one I care to root for. There’s no chance of a feel-good moment. It’s all the most hellish and rotten aspects of humanity given special advantages and allowed to run rampant. In this case, we have a group of elderly super-heroes who have been granted their powers many years in the past on a trip to an uncharted island. Today, they’re still trying to do good, but their children, also with powers, are complete screw-ups of various kinds that seem to do nothing but cause trouble, abuse their gifts, and/or each other, and treat ordinary people like dirt or worse. Actual super-villains seem almost nice by comparison. Can’t recommend this, pretty as the art is.
