    I thought this was a great standalone issue.
    I haven't been reading DC long enough to have ANY experience with the Metal Men, and have little with Will Magnus, so the story and characters were very original for me.
    As Davey notes, it was enjoyable to see uplifting and positive characters and plot, especially juxtaposed with so many darker characters and storylines coming out now.

A fair and positive praise for sure. But it did not feel inviting as a JL book at all. Big negative there.

    However, since we're in the middle of a major event, I question the timing of publication, unless Forever Evil #7 is going to be 60 pages long and the Metal Men (among other dangling threads) will be critical to its resolution.
    I'm not betting on the story even being resolved at this point.
    So, why [re]introduce them here?

Also true!

    What was additionally cool is that one of our part-timers at work is at Carnegie Mellon now and applying for grad school in mechanical engineering. I am trying to convince him to become the next Will Magus and be a real live superhero (or superhero creator), as he is also talented in robotics.

Neat.
