OMAC #2 illustrates what can be achieved when the bar is lowered

Near the beginning of OMAC #2, a minor character named Sarge Steel spars against three training robots that he’s probably fought countless times before. He defeats them easily, but he isn’t proud. Instead, he poses a question, which seems an appropriate sentiment for this review. “C’mon, this the best we can do?”

Hero Squared #5

The romantic and sympathetic criss-cross pairing up of characters is a great method through which we can peer a little deeper into the relationships.
