What Happened – The newly formed team sneak into a warehouse of a toy shop where criminal Gizmo is dealing weapons. The team take out Gizmo and his goons, only to discover that Gizmo has rigged himself to explode. As Crush and Roundhouse are on crowd control, Robin orders Djinn to possess Gizmo and disarm the bomb. When she is unable to do so, one member of the team makes the ultimate sacrifice and we are left on a nail biting cliff hanger.
My Thoughts – Whilst I like the new line up, after reading the last issue I felt that maybe there are one too many members on the team and I’m looking at Roundhouse. To me, he’s just a knock-off Bouncing Boy from the Legion of Superheroes. To make things worse, this issue had him narrating. I enjoy all the other members and can see story arcs and character developments for them, but an ‘internet sensation’ genius with a rather specific power is boring. The story was good and the cliffhanger interesting…Maybe I won’t have to worry about Roundhouse for long…
