Review: Enter the Heroic Age #1
The GoodI give credit to Gage and McKone for making Reptil interesting in the Avengers Academy preview, as he's a really lame character. His dinosaur limb powers sound silly, but actually come off pretty well in execution. Believe it or not, you'll think Reptil's cool even when his head turns into a triceratops'.
The Thunderbolts preview is another stand-out, mainly because of Kevin Walker's art. He's got a stylized, but sharp quality to his lines that reminds me of Steve McNiven in a good way. Also, even though it's really basic idea, this short caught the harder-edge superhero vibe I've always enjoyed about Thunderbolts.
The Black Widow short focuses more on the spy side of the character and it's a fun compliment to what's going on her own title. The Hawkeye/Mockingbird short was an action movie on paper, with a real emphasis on daring, circus-style acrobatics and snappy one-liners. And the Atlas short was fun in revealing a new connection the Kree have to these hidden characters' history.
