Full disclosure, I am a sucker for villain books. Give me the Joker vs. Sherlock Holmes. A Kobra ongoing? Sure, count me in. What I'm trying to say is that I probably liked this book more than you, but it has merit. The art reminded me of Spider-Gwen, the story reminded me of the Secret Society of Super Villains. I'm also kind of a nerd for the Hood. This one looks like it might not be around for very long so enjoy it while you can, as the villains nefarious plans will no doubt be thwarted by those pesky heroes.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
