The Rundown: A single mother and her troubled son become a dynamic crime fighting duo.
As the competition to become a real superhero continues around the world, a single mother named Yasmine reaches out to Choon-He Chung in an attempt to make her son proud and find a way to reach him before he does something desperate. Her wish is granted when she shows her son that not only is she the superhero ambassador to France, but that he will be her partner.
After showing him their new underground headquarters and all of its gadgets, the two go out into the night to fight crime and save others. A night that will not only bring a mother and son closer together, but will also get the attention of someone watching from the shadows.

The Art: I love the visual style of this issue. There is a fantastic sense of realness to the depictions of the characters and the environments are magnificent. The issue looks amazing from the characters to the action. I loved every page and panel.
