The first issue of New Warriors was quite a pleasant surprise. This issue continues that trend – as one of the New Avengers sees something familiar in the New Warriors, Tony Stark puts forth an offer to the teen heroes. Sofia, meanwhile, ponders the offer made her by the mysterious new Night Thrasher.

There are a lot of theories flying around about just who these New Warriors are and what their true purpose is, and this issue gives a lot of evidence towards some of those theories without giving any definite answers. Regardless, it makes for an intriguing, compelling story against the backdrop of the whole Initiative program. Kevin Grevioux has taken some liberties with Sofia’s established characterization from New X-Men, but it fits well enough in the context of this story. Paco Medina’s art, meanwhile, is just what one would want in a book like this one.

There are a lot of things being thrown around in this title – pieces of other comics that have gone by the wayside, ideas pulled from disparate sources (even a dose of Les Miserables, with the subplot about the cops trying to hunt down the kids). And while this book doesn’t tell us for sure what we’re dealing with, it definitely is feeling like the spiritual home for fans who were disenfranchised with New X-Men after House of M made that title unrecognizable. This book is a surprise treat.
