The Terrifics #16 Review

This is the second issue by the new creative team, and it’s becoming increasingly clear that the heyday of The Terrifics has passed.

It’s not a bad story. The art is good. I like some of the scenes, and Plastic Man is always good for a laugh.

Despite that, this now feels like a generic super team. They are dealing with the Biblical plagues of Egypt, and while those are being interpreted in unusual ways, it’s nothing that the Justice League would be out of place dealing with.

I hadn’t really realized just how important the layouts for this series had been. The constant use of paralleling gave focus to each of the members. The team really felt like four individuals forced to work together.

Now of course such a thing could not continue indefinitely. The first year of the series turned this ragtag collection of heroes into a truly functioning team. The real challenge is moving forward from there.

The book is still entertaining, and I am not about to give up on it so soon. This team has to be given time to form the Terrifics into something special again. I have no idea how they will do so. I’m not certain they can. But I will stick around to find out.
