Review: Super Powers #2

[Editor’s note: This review may contain spoilers.]

Writers: Art Baltazar & Franco
Artist: Art Baltazar

Summary
The heroes must defend Central City from the Composite Superman.

Positives
I really like this art style both on the cover and in the book itself. Art Baltazar has a unique style that I enjoy a lot. It doesn’t look like any other book on the stands right now and that’s cool. The style also helps sell the silliness of this book.

I like how many characters pop up in this especially the weirder ones such as Composite Superman. When I reviewed the first issue, I mentioned that it felt like kids playing with all of their toys in the best way. This feels like that as well. It’s creative and over the top with the right amount of humor to make it work.

The ending twist is absolutely hysterical. I won’t give it away, but it’s really funny. It isn’t a joke for the sake of a joke. It’s funny but I am engaged and I want to know what happens next.

Verdict
This is a really fun issue. Sometimes, these heroes are taken a little too seriously so I always enjoy when writers try a sillier angle. It’s creative, the art is neat, and it has some fun with the DC mythos.
