The Overlord

I haven't seen a thread for this, but did people think of this comic.

I thought it was okay, but it seemed too similar Secret Six. However I like anyway anything that focuses on B-list villains that normally don't get focus and its interesting to see some villains who don't like Osborn. However I wonder why Wonder Man would be with these guys.

Wonder Man's presence is likely something to do with the Grim Reaper being his brother.

And with his "Osborn is the leader that the public deserves and being a superhero all these years was a complete waste of time and energy" attitude, post-SI.

I enjoyed this first issue. It's definitely not the best LL story ever, but I liked it. I thought the first three pages were drawn very well; very spooky. I also liked the focus on Tiger Shark, and I couldn't help but feel sorry for the poor guy. He used to be a big-namer and now he's a pushover and Tieri played that up here. I found the two pages of the LL running rampant very nice, showing us that they did do some heavy damage for a while before being caught. That splash page of the Grim Reaper in full gear was pretty awesome. Don't care about Hyde or Absorbing Man, but I'm glad to see the Grey Gargoyle around, and especially Nekra, who I hope will get more airtime in the following two issues. I guess Tieri took Man-Ape out at the last moment; he was supposed to be on the cover, in the background, but they replaced his image with lights. That picture of Wonder Man on the last page was almost creepy, in a way, and I'm going on record now by saying that I seriously doubt he's the traitor since it's too obvious. There was an art error, though: When Eric Williams was stabbed, one picture had him stabbed in the left side of his chest, while another had him stabbed on the right. Whoops. In any case, I know the Lethal Legion untimately loses in the end, but this time I think it's the journey that's more important than the winning. We will see.
