The fallout from the death of the army of Darius Daxes and the release of Mean Supreme continues as the remainder of the Supremacy finds itself marooned on Earth without any powers, except for Suprema.
I’m glad to see several of the more colorful Silver Age versions of the character (including the lion-headed Supreme and the Mighty Mouse version of Supreme) are sticking around even as the comic embraces the original 90′s tone. Not surprisingly, one version of Darius Dax survives, but I’ve got to give writer/artist Erik Larsen credit for the choice of which version of the character is alive and after revenge.
The first issue following up Alan Moore‘s long-delayed final Supreme story had to do quite a bit of work to set the comic on a new path but I’m pleasantly surprised that even though the more vicious version of the character takes center stage here (as evidenced by him nearly beating Superpatriot to death) several of the more whimsical elements might still be allowed to flourish as well. Worth a look.
