Supreme Power Vol 2 Powers and Principalities (2004) J. Michael Straczynski

Powers and PrincipalitiesIn Powers and Principalities we continue the story of Mark Milton, as well as Nighthawk, Stanley Stewart, and Joe Ledger, and are introduced to Princess Zarda and the amphibian woman. (Or, as Michael and I were referring to them: the terrestrial naked lady and the aquatic naked lady.)

(And just why is it that the primary female characters are naked? None of the male characters are naked, except for the bit where Mark Milton gets all his clothes blown off. And of course the naked lady brings him a covering, while herself remaining naked. That annoys me.)

Mark continues to question who he is and what he is doing, Joe Ledger continues to obey his military masters, and Nighthawk and Stanley? Well, they start looking into crime.

In this book, nothing is resolved and further questions are raised, leaving me with the question of whether I want to continue this series.

Which leads me to the question of whether I really care about these characters, and I think the answer is, not really.

I feel sorry for Mark Milton but not that sorry, and with the exception of Stanley Stewart, no one else is really very likable. I’m curious as to how things resolve, but I don’t particularly care about the characters–if they were all killed in the next book it wouldn’t really bother me too much.

So.

We’ll probably pick up the next book when it comes out, because Michael really wants to know what happens, but if he doesn’t mention it, I’m not going to go out of my way to look for it.
