Marvel's youngest team of super heroes returns for more awesome action, family fun and Snark-stomping adventures - and this time they've brought some very special friends! Hot on the heels of for four fun-filled, all-ages solo adventures, everyone's favorite super-powered siblings team up with Marvel's merry mutants, the X-Men! It features Wolverine, Beast, Nightcrawler and Cyclops! Then, Power Pack returns for another titanic team-up - and this time, it's Earth's Mightiest Heroes leading the charge - featuring Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman and more! This title contains: "Power Pack", numbered 1-4; "X-Men and Power Pack", numbered 1-4; and, "Avengers and Power Pack Assemble!", numbered 1-4.
Die Zeichnungen sind 1-A und das Character Design sehr sympatisch.
Es geht um die 4 Powers Geschwister, die durch einen (un)glücklichen Zufall superkräfte bekommen haben.
Jedes Kapitel ist gut durchdacht und in sich abgeschlossen. Viel Witz und Charme.
Was ich vermisse, ist ein roter Faden, der die Kapitel mieinander verbinden würde. Ich mag einfach persönlich gerne längere Geschichte, in denen dann auch etwas mehr Spannung aufgebaut werden kann.
Aber so haben mir die Einzelnen Geschichte gut gelafallen. Habe mir gleich den nächsten Power Pack Comic bestellt. x3
(Auch sollte man beachten, dass die Geschichten eher nicht an ein erwachsenes Puplikum gerichtet sind.)

What kid wouldn't identify with the Power children? Alex, Julie, Jack and Katie Power were normal kids, cared for by their scientist dad and their artist mom. But one extra-terrestrial encounter later, and the siblings suddenly boast super powers. Alex Power (Zero-G), the oldest and level-headed and sort of blah, now controls gravity. Julie (Lightspeed), the studious one, flies at hypervelocities. Jack (Mass Master), impulsive and blustery and frankly kind of annoying, is able to manipulate his density and can assume a gaseous form or shrink to a very compact size. And Katie (Energizer), the youngest one, may be the most powerful, able to absorb energies and expel them in explosive bursts. As Power Pack, the kids use their abilities to fight the good fight and hobnob with big time superheroes even as they try to keep their parents in the dark.
If you're read the old-school 1980s Power Pack series by Louise Simonson and June Brigman, just keep in mind that the stories collected here don't share the same continuity and don't delve into as many topical themes. What we get are more simplistic takes, although by no means does Power Pack lose anything in the way of fun or playfulness. POWER PACK: THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT collects the first three Power Pack mini-series in the Marvel Adventures label: POWER PACK: PACK ATTACK #1-4, X-MEN & POWER PACK: THE POWER OF X #1-4, and AVENGERS & POWER PACK: ASSEMBLE! #1-4, all three mini-series having been originally published in 2005 and 2006 and were previously, separately collected in digest-sized trades (which is the size usually used when compiling these Marvel Adventures titles). This hardcover trade comes in regular comic-book dimensions (in fact, it may even be a bit larger). If you're a parent, if you're a babysitter, doting aunt or uncle, whatever... if you're looking for something to spark the young 'uns' interest and imagination, POWER PACK is just about as ideal as it gets.
Some plot SPOILERS now.
POWER PACK: PACK ATTACK consists of four stand-alone stories, although issues 1 & 4 do feature Skratt, the young Snark who wants to take on the Pack. The first issue has Katie's "What I Did Over the Summer" report threatening to out the Pack's secret identities. In issue #2 Alex ignores his babysitting duties to sneak out on a date with the girl of his dreams. But, as Alex finds out, it's never cool to leave unsupervised kids home alone with an interdimensional portal. Next, the Power family go on a camping trip. All's well until a bored outta his gourd Jack sneaks into a supervillain's vacation home. Good thing the Fantastic Four are around. In issue #4, a member, feeling underappreciated, quits the Pack, even as Skratt the Snark makes his move on Power Pack.
X-MEN & POWER PACK: THE POWER OF X finds the Pack teaming up with a different X-Man per issue, starting with Wolverine and Sabertooth gatecrashing a Halloween spook-tacular bash being attended by the Powers. Then the kids and their scientist dad go to a science convention and help out Dr. Henry P. McCoy (a.k.a. the Beast), who's just had his invention stolen (also, Julie's egghead tendencies surface). Issue #3 has the Pack and Nightcrawler superheroing in the sawdust as they rescue the circus's really captive audience. And we also learn of Katie's crippling fear of clowns. Lastly, the Pack tries to help out Cyclops and the X-Men in collaring the Marauders, but end up botching things. They get a chance to atone when Cyclops is captured by Mr. Sinister.
In AVENGERS & POWER PACK: ASSEMBLE! the Pack hangs out with Earth's Mightiest Heroes. Captain America is first up, one of the oldest superheroes around side by side with Marvel's youngest superheroes. The funniest part of this issue may well be when the story's featured villain, Taskmaster, begins bagging on the Pack ("I honestly don't know whether to fight you or hug you!"). Next issue, when the terrorist organization A.I.M. gets a hold of Iron Man technology, can the invincible Shellhead be too far behind? But what happens when Jack manages to get into a prototype Iron Man suit? Finally, we get a two-parter. The Power family visits the Big Apple, the mecca of cowls and capes. Soon Power Pack and the New Avengers are joining forces to go fighty fight with the temporal supervillain, Kang the Conqueror. The stakes escalate when Kang sends the children ten years into a very bleak future, where Kang rules all and the only ones left to challenge him are the Power kids' future versions.
These stories are terrific jumping-on points for young readers and for ye olde types who'd never before picked up a Power Pack issue. Writer Marc Sumerak keeps things lively and lighthearted and, okay, cute. He also packs in tons of fun sibling squabbling and ample superheroics and team-ups with more established heroes, with the kids very much holding their own. But you never really get the sense that the kids are ever in serious peril. The Gurihiru team provides the wonderfully simple yet expressive Manga-ish art. And if that's not enough to pique interest, lurking in these pages is a gigantic otherworldly squid which Katie names "Larry." C'mon, don't tell me your bump of curiousity didn't just go "Hruh?"
If you're a parent looking for a comic to share with your kids say ages 6-14 then I think you'll be delightfully surprised by this book. It doesn't pander or seem pathetic. My kids found the humor and pathos genuinely moving. It was solid, good comics. Perhaps nothing proves it better than finding the book open beside my sleeping children on two separate nights. Great stuff.
