This issue re-purposes the Roxxon corporation as a company trying to rehab its image by manipulating teens via a new app. I like the teens and tech angle. That’s the kind of thing you can’t necessarily do with a regular superhero book.
I also appreciate the way Lore writes the tension between Ironheart and the rest of the teens. It feels authentic. Like the kind of thing that could happen in a real group of high-school-aged friends.
Then again, it’s been a good 20 years since high school. So I could be way off.
