Supreme Power: Hyperion, J. Part of the problem is that Straczynski's writing isn't as strong here as it was in the original Supreme Power series. For whatever reason, this storyline lacks the richly-detailed layers and contextual backdrops that were hallmarks of the best issues of that series.

Babylon 5 creator and Amazing Spider-Man scribe J. Michael Straczynski's re-imagining of the Squadren Supreme was nothing short of brilliantly realized comic reading. This Supreme Power spin-off, written by Straczynski and focusing on Hyperion, doesn't feature the awe inspiring and innovative storytelling that had become a staple on the regular Supreme Power series, but it is nevertheless an important chapter in the Supreme Power saga. This TPB picks up with the government making one last attempt to bring Mark Milton AKA Hyperion back under their control by organizing a small group of super powered individuals (each of the five are based off of classic Squadren Supreme characters) who make their trek to the great white north to take Hyperion down. However, during the battle, Hyperion and the others find themselves transported to an alternate reality; a reality in which humanity is at the bottom of the ladder, and Hyperion and other familiar faces like Zarda and Doc Spectrum are bringing great misery to humankind. As the story progresses and the secrets are revealed down to the final twist, it becomes apparent that this is only a taste of things to come. Dan Jurgens, AKA the man that killed Superman way back when, provides the pencils here, and they just don't have that cinematic appeal that regular Supreme Power artist Gary Frank has. Despite that however, this is still essential reading in the Supreme Power saga, and if you want to read something truly exceptional, check out the other Supreme Power spin-off, Nighthawk, written by Daniel Way and illustrated by Preacher artist Steve Dillon.

If you loved the art in the Supreme Powers books, don't get this one. I was dissapointed that the artwork had changed and I wasn't a huge fan of the story.

To quote Otto Octavius, "Those other reviewers are fools."

I read this when it was first released, and then again last night (almost 10 years later). This has aged very well. A basic synopsis that reveals nothing and sets up the story: at the end of vol. 3 of Supreme Power, Hyperion has stopped working for the US Government and demanded to be left alone. They didn't, so he created a massive crater that register over 10 on the Richter scale. At the start of this volume, the US Government (military) sends four other powered creatures (from Squadron Supreme lore) to bring him back or kill him. They meet, fight and are sent to an alternate reality. That alternate reality looks a lot like the 1986 Squadron Supreme series by Mark Grunewald.

The dialogue is excellent. I read a lot of comics, and have recently been reading Jason Aaron's female Thor and Dan Slott's Superior Spiderman. Both have their moments, but the dialogue, plot and pacing all pale to his brilliant work by Straczynski.

Warning: Contains Spoilers

Supreme Power: Hyperion, J. Michael Straczynski's sequel of sorts to Supreme Power manages to accomplish a rare feat among graphic novels. It is simultaneously disappointing and yet also essential reading.

Part of the problem is that Straczynski's writing isn't as strong here as it was in the original Supreme Power series. For whatever reason, this storyline lacks the richly-detailed layers and contextual backdrops that were hallmarks of the best issues of that series. It also feels rushed like a movie sequel hurried into production with an incomplete script and inferior special effects budget in order to capitalize on the box office success of the original movie.

Furthermore, the superb artwork of Gary Frank, a key ingredient to Supreme Power, is also missed here. Though fill in artist Dan Jurgens is no slouch his pencil work here has a slapdash feel that doesn't do this story justice.

In that story, Mark Milton, aka Hyperion, after bailing on his government employers has gone into hiding at the Artic circle. The government dispatches a newly-recruited batch of superpowered operatives, the Shape, Arcanna, Nuke, and Dr. Emil Burbank to bring him back - dead or alive.

During the ensuing battle an energy blast transports the five to what seems to be a parallel earth whose despotic rulers look strangely familiar. They are the Squadron Supreme and they are led by that world's version of Hyperion.

While this is an interesting premise and rife with possibilities there's just no getting around the fact that this story just doesn't measure up to the high standards set by Supreme Power. Indeed some of the plot points aren't well thought out.

For example, at the close of Supreme Power, Hyperion feeling alone and betrayed sent the government a message by causing a 10.5 on the Richter Scale event at the North Pole. Considering this, does it really make sense that in this story the new recruits find him still hanging around at the North Pole? Wouldn't he have thought to make himself scarce?

However, if you missed this when it first appeared as a five issue mini-series earlier this year I must say that I do recommend it. This is because it serves as a key transitional story which bridges the gap between Straczynski's earlier Supreme Power and the new ongoing Squadron Supreme series which debuted five months ago.

It also points the way toward what could be future events in that series. So bottom line, though it doesn't reach the Olympian Heights of the earlier Supreme Power graphic novels, "Contact," "Powers and Principalities," and "High Command" if you want to follow the ongoing saga of Hyperion and his cohorts this is one to pick up.
