Channeling the same spirit behind the popular X-Men universe with subtle nods to Disney's The Incredibles, this first installment into the MetaWars series nevertheless sucked me in from the opening salvo and spit me out much later, emotionally battered but ultimately incredibly satisfied with the ride I'd just taken.

Trance was a great leading character for the story, with her stubbornness and vulnerabilities blending to create an imperfect heroine who made plenty of mistakes but ultimately rallied to come through when it was really needed. Her relationship with Cipher, while not really taking a front seat in the story, was a great balance to all of the adrenaline inducing action, and the rest of the characters did a beautiful job of balancing out the team as a whole.

The mystery of the villain was well done, despite the fact I figured it out fairly early, and even without that, each individual confrontation was incredibly exciting, with no indication of whether or not all of the characters would make it out alive.

While I did find the confrontations to be overwhelming at times, I am still greatly looking forward to the sequel, Changeling, expected out summer of 2o12.

4/5 Stars.
