Heroes for Hire #3
Is this the weakest of the first three issues... yes. Would I take an entire series where this is the best it gets... hell to the yes! A & L have come back down to Earth after a phenominal run with Marvel's Galaxy Heroes and they've landed with feet running.
Both stories were well told with Paladin's being the stronger of the two. I'm very excited to see where Paladin's character goes here. These two have a knack for taking C and D characters and making them feel just as important in the Marvel Universe as Captain America and Thor. I can easily see Paladin becoming a leader much like Star Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Coming from the 70's when Heroes focused mainly on Luke, Randy, Misty and Colleen, it was great to see Iron Fist grace this book again. Not a fan of him as an Avenger and would love to see him come home where he belongs.
In three issues this has already become my first read when it comes out.The art is really the only issue I have with it. Very weak in spots and dead on in others. Still, the first arc has me hooked so I'm on for the long haul with this book in general.
My Score: 8
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Good-bye.."
