Review: A-Force #1- Pretty mediocre

A-Force #1 Review is here!

Grade: 4/10

A-Force has been marketed as the girl power story.  It features a large group of Marvel's females cast.  For being a brand new team that showcases many of the females the series was pretty heavily hyped.  Despite the hype I found the story here to be pretty lazy and mediocre.  The ladies of A-Force go on a patrol around Arcadia and they find a giant flying shark and they fight it.  Now a flying shark is kind of cool but is obviously no match for the female super army put together here.  The shark seems to outgunned that part of me was rooting for the it (What can I say I love an underdog).

The group then runs a foul of Doom when one of their members breaks God Doom's rules and is sentenced to be sent to the wall.  While denizens do not like this they don't really fight the Thors that come to dispense justice.  They justice get their feeling hurt and start crying.

At the end of the story I was given no reason to pick up the next one.  There is no cliff hanger, no question and really not even a problem. 

Its not the worst thing I ever read, but it did not live up to hype.  One positive not about the series is that it does feature Nico Minoru the Japanese magic user from the Runaways.  The Runaways were great characters and deserve to be featured more. 

Secret Wars Tie Ins:
The Story takes place in the Battleworld realm known as Arcadia marked on the map below as #35.  It is an island that closely borders the barrier called the SHIELD that blocks the dangerous realms of the Deadlands (Home of Marvel Zombies) and Perfection (The world of Ultrons).

Arcadia is a good, peaceful realm that is ruled by She Hulk and her noble A-Force.

A lot of fire power for a shark
