I found the first issue to be light but quite good. For me, though there is plenty of mystery introduced early on, the real drama didn’t start until the very end of the issue with the quite interesting set-up.
The basic internal conflict from my perspective is that it is very easy for a person to do “good” deeds if they have superpowers. I also thought it was a nice touch that many of the deeds did not require superpowers, though. Really, though, there was no test of Huck’s character in this issue in the sense that he did not really risk anything with the choices he made. His heroics were on the level of a satisfying hobby.
The one big choice he did make that I won’t spoil was also nicely delivered. Basically, I found that the one time Huck thought big, he really didn’t think about it. He did something that, as far as this issue is concerned, was unusual for him, outside his usual scope - and, I think it’s important to note that as far as this issue, it seemed the only deed that required him to use violence - and at the end of the issue, it appears he’s facing unintended consequences for that.
In that regard, I did find that one deed (not to use spoilers) to be a little confusing in that it seemed actually outside his power level to accomplish it in one day. Hopefully this isn’t too spoilery, but I got the impression that Huck is more on the level of Golden Age Superman than Superior, while it seemed like just to cross the geographic distance to accomplish what he did or find what he was looking for would require Silver Age Superman capabilities. So I am still trying to get a read on what exactly is Huck’s power set.
Nevertheless, I enjoyed the read and I’m very curious about where the next issue will go not only as far as the impact the last scene will have but who in this world might respond to the news that’s about to get out in regard to where Huck may have come from.
