A twist on the familiar “group of super-powered teens/young adults get together in a down-trodden area to fight crime” story. I liked this a lot better than the most recent X-men comics. None of the powers are particularly new, in terms of comics, but the way they are portrayed, and how they are reflective of the character they belong to, is interesting to watch unfold. In this story, our group, “The Movement”, are fighting back against a Mongol who has essentially bought the city and planned to level it to build his fortune.
Volume 1 includes issues 1-6.
