A-Force #1

   One of the most interesting titles - in potential - that was created during the Secret Wars was A-Force, a (mostly) all-female version of the Avengers.

   While that series never quite lived up to its potential, it now gets a second chance at life post-Secret Wars - but it starts with a blank slate, as none of the heroes featured here remember anything about Battleworld.

   Well, there's one exception - the mysterious star-filled girl named Singularity is (re)born into the Marvel Universe - and she remembers her former friends.

   But she's brought a powerful menace with her, and that means it's time to put the band together, including Captain Marvel, the She-Hulk and Medusa.

    The issue is written by G. Willow Wilson and drawn by Jorge Molina, and it's a decent first issue, with some nice humor threaded through the action sequences.

   It's still early, but once again, there's lots of potential - it remains to be seen if this team can live up to its promise.

Grade: B+
