I am reprinting this from the forums of the Dallas ComiCon website. They are not nearly as well frequented as SSG, especially between shows, so I thought I'd give these thoughts some new life. Though I've read the third and even fourth issues since this was originally written, I decided to reproduce it in tis orignal form, minus the shameless plug for our store:
Has anyone else here read Supreme Power? J. Michael Strazynski (probably misspelled) is giving Marvel's Squadron Supreme the kind of treatment that Miracle Man (Marvel Man) got under Alan Moore! And since the Squadron was simply a Marvel rip-off of the Justice League, he's really getting to play with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Lantern, and Aquaman (so far) in ways that DC would never allow.
This title does bear Mature Audiences labeling, and with good reason. So far this title has pulled no punches and takes a more realistice approach to exploring the lives of "super-heroes", without the kind of cynical slant that Alan Moore gives to this approach. The first issues appear to be more about exposition, introducing each of the principle characters and building toward whatever is in the works for them once we get to know them. The third issue just came out this week, though I've not had a chance to read it yet. Keep an eye on this one, it looks to be a classic in the making.
