Is it just me, or is anyone else tired of all the superheroes having to be from the US and of all the super-villain attacks being on the US? I love the idea of a story in a totally foreign location.
Loves: 2025 Lagoon City, villain/hero relationship, that there's more than one hero in this universe, the villain runs an extremist group. They actually call it an extremist group which is new for me and comics. Maybe I just missed it in others, but I feel like the word was specifically chosen here.
Most of the elements of the story are familiar in the way that there's isn't much that's new in the superhero landscape anymore. I think we've explored as many motivations, relationships, tragic backstories, and uses for minions as are possible but they get tweaked a bit here and there to provide the story with it's own uniqueness. This story does the same thing.
I look forward to finding out what happens next and finding out what the deal is with some of these women. If you read it, you'll understand what I mean by that. They intrigue me, as does Wale. I also want to see what else the suit can do.
This series is brought to us by Youneek Studios, which started with this comic but are expanding their universe. When I went back to check on their site, I even saw that pre-orders are available for the first volume of their new series Malika: Warrior Queen. I can't wait to read that one! Take a look through their website and you'll see their amazing art. Their second volume of E.X.O. is also available there and on Amazon.
This is a good story that I think people should check out. It's fun and presents new and interesting characters for us. If you're a diversity reader, this should definitely go on your list of comics/graphic novels to read soon.
