Now, as the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, it’s up to a group of retired and long forgotten Hypernaturals — and their novice recruits — to save the galaxy from complete destruction.

  1. The Spoilerite who called in and recommended giving Wonder Woman a try…well, thank you, sir!

    Exactly right. The first few issues put me off, but reading the run through, it’s pretty well done. Much more mythology tale than superhero feel but it works.
