SuperMegaSpeed Reviews

Herc #6.1 - A great introductory/jumping-on issue, just in time for cancellation. Oh well. At least we got a great scene of Hercules attacking some Olympian Titans with an anti-tank rocket launcher.

I still think that Marvel should put Pak & Van Lente on a rotation of mini-series. Four issues of Hercules. Four issues of Werewolf By Night. Four issues of Doc Samson playing psychiatrist to the stars. Four issues of Squirrel Girl defeating cosmic level bad guys. Four issues of Spider-Woman escaping from ropes. Etc., etc. They're excellent writers with a good grasp on Marvel's history and a great sense of characterization and it would be putting them to good use without having to constantly fight the specter of cancellation. Plus Marvel would get a built in set of #1s while maintaining the copyright requirements on lesser used characters, and you never know what may become a surprise hit.
