I know they are an complete rip of the JLA but did anyone read these comics? Does anyone actually like Squadron Supreme (besides me)?

Honestly.... She's ugly. And reminds me too much of Wonder Woman who isn't anywhere near my list of favorites.

Molly's superhero name is Bruiser or Princess Powerful..not Power Princess.
Arcanna is a rip-off of Zatanna..obviously.

I can't decide which version I like better, I also wish Greg Land would stop tracing especially when he  traces a drawing already made out of tracings.

I dont like Chaykin's new Squadron Supreme book, they introduced wierd versions of Marvel heroes in that universe, and i figure that might have seemed like a good idea, make the JLA into bad guys (atleast superman/ hyperion and lantern/ spectrum are coming off as bad guys) and have them fight the marvel U guys, but After the supreme universe was pratically destroyed in ultimate power, why not have the JLA mirrors leave that universe and end up in another Marvel U, not the Zombieverse, or the ultimate universe, or even the 616,  just someplace else.... (that will explain the new people having marvel character similarities better than just shoehorning this into JMS' Supreme o verse ) so far the book as been about the origins of these marvel characters, which has been a big waste of time ..  Maybe they can waste another issue on the origin of supreme universe's Nick Fury, name him Bob Furious and have him kill ultimate nick fury. Maybe then the book will get interesting. Having said all that i do like the Deodato covers.

I do have to agree that the new series isnt that good but keeping them on their own earth and creating a universe from there is a good idea. Having them go into other universes is too much like the original concept back when they would fight the Avengers. The Ultimate crossover was good though.

Damn, Vance, I thought you actually liked the team (from your OP) and I wanted to ask which series I should read. I hadn't actually realised that they are the same team that appeared in Ultimate Power. I just thought it was an alternate version of them, not the real thing.

After actually reading Supreme Squadron and some of Ultimate Power including the minis for specific characters..I'm convinced that this isn't the best rip-off of The JLA.I liked Power Princess before,but her MAX version is too raw,too generic.Otherwise I don't really like anyone else on the team accept Nighthawk,but when I read his mini and found that he was blatantly trying to rip off Batman.I stopped liking him,well at least that version.The real Nighthawk is awesome.I mean come on.His main villain in the comic was a damn clown.

When I say Nighthawk's main villain in his mini was a clown...I mean he was a regular ass clown too.He wasn't like the Joker.He was just some scumbag in a clown costume.

I loved the series when JMS was writting it, haven't tried other versions.
 
Yes they are a rip-off but they are also JMS' way of paying tribute and bringing originality to DC's greatest heroes.

Each one of them are truly messed up, but they're really cool at the same times.  
 I love how Nighthawk is badass and how he kill his ennemis for good. I wished the series goes on because it's one of the few that didn't make me feel s...d up when I end reading a volume.

Haven't read the Earth-31916 version of the team, but I like the Earth-712 version. I know they were originally a JLA rip-off, but I think they've evolved into their own team over time.

#40 Posted by RedK (2521 posts) - - Show Bio

read the book, they were all right a bit to serious at times liked the hyperion he was pretty cool especially when he told his "dad" he could fly and he was only staying because of them and also that time he mentioned to the guy like batman that he didn't use x-ray vision cause he might burn his face cause he couldn't control it yet, but other then that was never really invested in them the way i would with the JLA, Superman or Batman

I have never read any of the comics, but I gave a good shot at writing their team page and updating some of the characters (Power Princess, Skylark/Lady Lark) and so on.

I like them from what I've read, and I'm thinking of looking into more of their appearances.

I'm enjoying Hyperion in Avengers too. He's fitting in and standing out pretty well.
