A former downtrodden housewife with anger issues, a mercenary with psychotic tendencies, a cocky British punk, an egomaniac, and a guy who runs a takeout.
This bunch of misfits may not sound like the ideal ingredients for a team, but The White House’s Joe Cyborg wants them!
As an “Origin” issue (or .1 or #0) this hits all the right notes. Not telling you everything, but giving you enough of the set up to prepare you for #1.
It hits the ground running giving ample background on each of the key characters of the team and their background – while not giving too much away. There is a diverse amount of characters and the fact that you only get to see them individually adds to the excitement of seeing them work as a team. Obviously there will be the problem of control with some of the team members, so there’s one issue!
We also got some hints about the team history – not too much was given away, but there was some former Nazi involvement in the previous team, which seems to be hanging over the team that has now been created!
The art is fund and each character has there own distinct look. There’s a nice style to it and the colouring works well with the story and style of art.
This is a good free #0 to read and something worth checking out!
