This month, DC released two new titles that are linked together: The Movement written by Gail Simone and drawn by Freddie Williams II, and The Green Team: Teen Trillionaires written by Art Baltazar and Franco and drawn by Ig Guara. Being a Gail Simone fan, it was a pretty easy decision to check out The Movement. Green Team was a little trickier. The fact that it was being paired with a book I was probably going to get helped. Also factoring in was that I have heard very good things about Baltazar and Franco, especially on Tiny Titans. So, I picked it up.
And I wasn’t disappointed with either book. They were both fine #1 issues. They both introduced their full (probably) cast of characters, establishing a starting point for each of their characterizations. The Movement is a team of young superheroes that have essentially declared war on a corrupt police department. They’ve told the police department that The Movement is now protecting that part of the city, known as The Tweens, being that the police haven’t done a very good job anyways.
The Green Team is about a group of, well…teen trillionaires. The apparent leader is a guy named Commodore, who is hosting a technology expo, looking for gadgets and inventions to invest in. In the end, it’s revealed that Commodore has had a disc that transforms into a special suit, which he uses when he’s attacked.
Don’t really have much else to say about them. Just wanted to let you know that they were both good reads, and you should check them out. Especially if you’re a fan of young superhero teams.
