Review: The Resistance #3
In our new world of social media, life has become different. People who are normally introverts in person may find their voice behind a keyboard. People who cannot express their views in a normal setting find their platforms online. It is through this new medium, that the taste of celebrity can be intoxicating.
Some people use it for good, bringing attention to much-needed causes. Then there are those who use it for their own ignorance. Which makes you wonder how would superpowered beings operate in a climate like we have now? In the third issue of The Resistance, a hero must make a moral choice
We’re taken to the Swan Kirby Chase Powers Placement Agency, which is a one-stop shop for these newly superpowered people. We meet James, one of the new super-powered beings. We also meet Hector Alvarez, the man who outfits all these “superheroes” and leads him to find his superhero name. We also get some background on James how his family abandoned him soon after finding out his new abilities. By the issue’s end, he senses there may be something he doesn’t want to be part of and becomes his own hero.
Overall, a powerful third issue, which gives readers a hero to root for. The story by J. Michael Straczynski is gripping. The art by the creative team of Mike Deodato Jr., Lee Loughridge, and Sal Cipriano is splendid. Altogether, a story that gives readers a new perspective.
