I picked up this book figuring that if it wasn’t full of violence in the first issue that I would drop it. I was wrong.

First thing I want to get out of the way in this review is Romita Jr.’s art. It as always is amazing and well polished. I oddly felt like I was reading a book that took place in his Amazing Spider-man run since everything felt so familiar. I am a huge fan of his artwork and he did not fail to deliver in this book.

Millar also delivered. It’s been a while since I’ve been able to like one of his books, mostly because of the tragedy that was Civil War. This book though was incredibly realistic and how I always imagined how it would be for someone who threw on spandex the real life.

I also liked how different he made the main character from your average hero. He’s actually a normal person, well as normal as you can get for a crazy person who decides to get a wet-suit and fight crime. I don’t want to let too much out about this book in terms of story because I thought it was really enjoyable. Let’s just say that Millar wanting a story about a realistic view on how it would be for someone who decided to be a super-hero was spot.

As for overall story in this book I felt that a lot happened. There was a lot of narration and my 2.99 was well spent for this one. In fact I think there was only a single page that did not have several panels on it. I would recommend anyone this book that wanted to have a good time.

Although for its name sake that wasn’t as much ass kicking as I hoped. I’m sure we’ll get to it in due time.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent
