Champions #10

   As mentioned in this week's Avengers review, it's a trick to work around a big Event series (such as Secret Empire) - and writer Mark Waid shows how it's done.

   Since the Champions are heavily involved in the event, working outside it is a trick - so Waid uses this issue to check in on the team's members, two of whom are off doing other things (Cyclops is with the X-Men, and Nova is trapped in space on the other side of a planet-wide force field) - so that leaves the team the task of tracking down Ms. Marvel.

   That involves tracking down a secret concentration camp and facing some difficult choices. The story features a few surprises and some tough challenges that force the heroes to make some smart decisions.

   I love it when the heroes are smart.

   The art by Humberto Ramos and Victor Olazaba is terrific as always, with striking layouts and great character depictions.

   It's a clever series and it focuses on the positive energy of the younger generation of heroes. I like it!

Grade: A-
