Wow. Very, very '80s, in look and dialogue. Like many of the New Universe properties, I felt like this was ahead of it's time. It's non-costumed metahumans, which would have been right for the late '90s and early '00s, but with '80s superhero sensibilities behind it, it mostly comes off as cheesy.

There are some good ideas here, notably a beyond-the-grave psychic push that keeps the bickering teens together, but the cheesy nicknames, bad dialogue and melodramatic plots make it mostly a miss. From
A long time ago, in a universe not all that different from our own there was a bright white flash in the sky and a whole bunch of people were never quite the same again.
That’s basically how the whole thing started in Marvel’s (failed?) experiment at a second attempt at world building. The White Event. The New Universe. Unfortunately, it didn’t exactly capture the imaginations of comic book readers.
This series is more than a bit disappointing. While there is potential in the concept, 5 teenager

It's weird. This is almost exactly the same comicbook as DP7, except all the characters are teenagers! Why did they both exist? Why doesn't the New Universe seem to recognize the breakout of superpowers the same way, e.g., they hate and fear mutants?

What is up with these youth shelters?

This is an interesting concept to have a superhero team of teenagers who don’t have costumes or traditional villains. It would have been executed better if there weren’t different authors writing each issue.
