Critic reviews for City of Heroes
It's an unsurprising, but logical step in the maturation of not only Oliver Queen, but of the show itself.
"City of Heroes" gave us plenty of strong action sequences with the hood copycats...and enough tantalizing tidbits of the season to come, moving at a brisk enough pace to avoid overstaying its welcome.
It was a great season opener and I'm glad we don't have to waste more than one episode on Oliver trying not to be a hero.
"City of Heroes" successfully sets a top-notch standard for the new season and expertly builds off the momentum and good will the show earned from last year's dynamite conclusion.
"City of Heroes" wasted little time throwing Ollie and his friends back into the thick of things, and it introduced two intriguing new female characters to boot.
