The creative team that made the outstanding "Inhumans" creates a revisionist history of the Marvel Universe by introducing the grandfather of caped heroes, (predating even the Fantastic Four) who mysteriously reappears after years in limbo. While neither the art nor the plot is as good as the "Inhumans", the story is gripping nontheless and makes for enjoyable reading. Paul Jenkins weaves in 'fictional' flashbacks that Jae Lee (and others) reflect in the drawing to neat affect. Appearances by Spidey, Doc Strange, the FF, the Hulk, and X-men add to the psuedo-nostalgia.
While not on par with 'Watchmen', 'Dark Knight' or 'Inhumans', I recommned it as nearly as essential as Alex Ross' 'Marvels' to true-believing Marvel fans.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea marred by bad execution June 21 2002
Format:Paperback
I like Jenkins work in general, and the art here is fine. My concern lies primarily with the pacing of the tale: it's flat-out too slow, repeats itself for next-to-no reason WAY too often (even for a book that's split across a few titles it's too repetitous) and its flat-out anti-climatic. The intriguing idea of a long-lost hero's return - beloved (albeit unbelievably so for my taste...smacks too much of "Astro City", and not pleasantly so), powerful and righteous - into current day continuity was cool. It ends up, unfortunately, coming off like a boring Miracleman book.

4.0 out of 5 stars New secrets from old favorites Jan. 10 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is an ideal purchase for FOOM's everywhere (that would be Friends of Old Marvel, you know who you are). If you grew up reading "Fantastic Four", "Spiderman", "X-Men", or "The Incredible Hulk" this book is a must. Jenkins weaves this a new hero seamlessly into Marvel history. This is an enjoyable read that leads up to a surprise twist in the end. Jae Lee's artwork is fresh and sharp. This book is an ideal purchase for the 30-something Marvel fan. Buy it today! 'Nuff Said!

2.0 out of 5 stars Promised much-delivered little. Jan. 5 2002
Format:Paperback
At first, the thought of Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee doing a "long lost" Marvel classic character makes your mouth drool with anticipation. However the cold reality of it's execution soon brings with it the crushing realazation that we are reading something that I as a comic book fan have read a million times. Nothing new here! Nice Jae Lee artwork though.
