Were very cool. The Chinese heroes (all masterminded by Grant Morrison and designed by JG Jones) looked especially great. Morrison and company seem to be bringing their A game, and while I'm a little wary of buying this book, this really made me want to see where these characters, and the others shown, would end up.

Did any of them not look like representations of China's flag or something associated with China?

Yeah, it was kinda neat. Not sure what to think yet of SuperNova...aka Superboy? At least that was the rumor I heard months ago that because of the legal troubles with the Siegel family DC was killing Superboy in IC (which they did) and bringing a new version of him back afterward called Supernova. Now I see this character and I'm not sure what to think.

There are scans of character designs of Supernova, a super hero team that Lex Luthor has made (that apparently has some known characters), and China's super heroes. Master Physician, Immortal Man, Cellestial Archer, and Mother of all something. I forget what exactly. Anyways, the designs were great.

Their look. Are their costumes based on the Chinese flag or something associated with China?

Nope. Not that I recall. Why?

Because that's what happens 99% of the time with Marvel and DC :)


I'm pleasantly suprised.

So was I. I'm told there may be something resembling a communist symbol on one of the costumes, but for the most part they look great.

I wish someone had a scan of it so you guys could see.

They looked cool. Luthor's JL looked kind of lame, but the Chinese heroes were awesome, and Supernova looked good.

So no one is going to mention that one of the Chinese characters looked almost exactly like Crimson Dynamo from the present Ultimates 2 storyline? He even had the ghosted face within the big bubble head.

I forgot about that one, but yeah. It completely did.

As far as I'm concerned there is only one true Chinese superhero!

I was thinking more Rocket Red on steroids. I'll have to dig up the Ultimates, I tend to wait for the entire story to be out before I read the issues.

I am particularly wierded out by the pregnant superheroine, Mother of Champions. You just know that no villain who gets his ass kicked by her will ever have any credibility in the villain world again.
