    It's easy and simple, there's not much story in it yet and the character development at this moment is zero. But it has something catchy. I liked the first two chapters overall. Not because it's awesome or very good but because it gives a nostalgic feeling of some mecha series. Definitely going to read more of it.

    Just like in Ultimo, Stan Lee was made into a character in the story. The best friend on the crutches has some awesome hair, reminds me of Afro Samurai. At first I thought the main character was a girl because of the drawing but I turned out to be wrong. Heroman doesn't have the best name but I will have to live with it. I think the next stage of his evolution will being him able to speak. He almost seems to strong, hardly a scratch on him during the first 2 chapters. He does seem to have a since of compassion for humans when he saved the girl in the first chapter, like it wasn't a command by his master, just acting on his own. I hope this series gets better.

    Hmmm... although this came with an anime offer, I doubt it will be successful since it seems to fit with the American audience instead of the Japanese. Maybe CN might even try to capitalize on it?? it's more like Ben 10, though. BTW, is it just me or has Stan Lee taken up permanent residence in Japan? if so, I sure hope he'll be able to voice opinions from outside Japan about some mangas. (I don't want something like DA to happen again, so I hope if he is permanently staying, he'll be able to tell which mangas has global potential)

    As a Stan Lee fan, let me say one thing: He always does that. In every comic he works in. Every single one of them.
