Comments: Aliens are invading. A group of five super-heroes come to get his aid.
We are given a fast explanation of Peter Cannon’s history and how he has the knowledge that he does. Peter takes control of the situation. He comes across as a stuck up guy which he is. Only in his case thinking he knows everything is the same as knowing it.
Peter Cannon may be a genius but he does not know how to deal with people in a friendly manner. The support team he had are a nice variety of super-heroes. We needed to learn more about them, some we do not even learn their names.
The art looks amazing with the heroes all well drawn. We get a few action scenes as well. Super-heroes versus aliens. Peter knows just what to tell the others to do.
The main villain of course is not as smart as Peter or is he? Hard to tell yet.
Peter is a born leader with his knowledge yet his attitude is something that could interfere they others following him. He is though a man to be respected.
