When we last left the Ultraheroes, they were involved in a conflict with Emil Eagle and the Sinister 7 over Ultrapods, 6 devices that will create the Ultramachine, a weapon of immense power. Also, the Sinister 7 captured Mickey and were holding him along with the previously captured Scrooge McDuck and the Beagle Boys. The Sinister 7 offer their prisoners in exchange for the 3 Ultrapods that the heroes have, and they have no choice but to fly their and surrender their Ultrapods. This is a very interesting tale that has the good guys facing incredible odds. One of the Ultraheroes even betrays the team!! Also, we learn that there is a 7th Ultrapod hidden in the last place anyone would think to look for it. Despite it being an “all ages” book, the first story was very engaging. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and the cliffhanger ending definitely has me interested in reading the next issue.

In the second story, we are treated to another reprint of an older story, part 2 of the Red Bat’s origin. I had never known about Donald duck’s cousin Fethry before this 2 part story. Fethry is a classic bumbling hero and his exploits are entertaining. Also, there is a case of mistaken identity between Donald Duck and the Beagle Boys due to all of them wearing similar ape costumes. This was a very funny, madcap tale. As a Ducktales fan, any appearance of Uncle Scrooge and the Beagle Boys is welcome.

This has been another solid issue of Disney’s Heroes Squad: Ultraheroes. More good, wholesome hero hijinks with the Disney characters. At the risk of sounding clicheish, this book is literally fun for the whole family. The Happiest Place on Earth is producing some of the Happiest Books on Earth. Give them a try.

Rating: 3 out of 5

  1. I bought this for my son on FCBD and he seems to really like it. I thought it was pretty good too. Tiny Titans is still my go-to book for Gavin though.
