    This was the best House of M story in my opinion. The recipe is a bit strange though: take a bunch of Z-list villains and a strong emotional core, and voila, you have a surprisingly good story full of redeeming characters.I must say, Masters of Evil really stood out to me. You almost feel bad for the characters by the end, especially in the way they die at the hands of the regime. It's the way they're treated - mostly as believable humans - that really hits home.Absolutely pleasantly surprised.

    So this started off kind of cheesy, kind of men-in-tights superhero stuff and then got kind of heavy. Since it was an "alternate" reality it allowed the writers to be really brutal and kill off a bunch of characters who had been around for decades. I imagine that this kind of break from normal restrictions must be a lot of fun for the writers.

    I admit it; I had very low expectations for this book. I got it mainly because I am a completest and already had all the other House of M tie-ins. So, it came as quite a shock that this story was actually damn good! I didn't expect much because to me, these are all C or B-level villains at best. Other than Sandman who appeared in the third Spider-man film, I doubt anyone who isn't seriously into comics has heard of any of these characters. Fortunately, the writers used that to their advantage with a clever storyline that showed just how bad it is for sapiens that even minor villains end up fighting for humanity.The impetus for the story comes when The Hood decides to organize all these villains into a more effective team, à la the Mafia, to protect each other and make better, more profitable heists. And if they also stick it to the House of M, so much the better. None of them are mutants, though most do have some kind of power. This strategy evolves into something greater when Hood decides to use a Sapien Rights League as a cover for the hits, and Sapiens start revering them as heroes fighting against the establishment. But, Magneto is nothing if not ruthless and when he decides to crush this rebellion, these villains intend to go out in an exciting blaze of glory.This book was a delightful surprise. These characters work perfectly for the plot, as history has shown that many freedom fighters arise from obscurity. The core group are developed enough even in this short book to help the reader connect, and the action is non-stop. Overall, this is an excellent supplement to the HoM event. Highly recommended.

    Surprisingly good. Even moved my cold heart to shed a little tear which comic books rarely do in my experience. Must have been in a certain mood! (Lol) Anyway... this book is best read with other books and in a certain order to get the most out of it. In particular, it is best to start with the main House of M (HoM) novel first, or else readers may find themselves without sufficient context and a good grasp of the world within which HoM Masters of Evil takes place. I would also recommend reading Gage's two other House of M books first as well (i.e., after reading the main HoM book) and in the following order: HoM Civil War and HoM Avengers. By the time you get to this book, after the other three equally good books, it will have much more impact. The dialogue and the character motivations in this book were excellent. Despite being villains, I ended up really rooting for these characters. The redemptive nature of the story and the struggles against oppression were well done, and ended up being genuinely moving. For an alternative reality story, of which you will find many in the Marvel Universe, this is one of the best I've read.

    This is a solid read with fantastic storytelling and great art to match. I liked how, The Hood was the main character in this book and we saw a whole different side to the beloved X-Men characters as well. Wolverine was real messed up in this book, but I liked how they tackled issues like discrimination and oppression in a way that echoes our real life society. I only wish there wasn't a whole of secondary characters who were kind of unknown villains in the marvel universe and instead a few fleshed out ones like, Madam Masque ??? And the Jeffries brothers were really creepy.

    Out of all the spin off stories, this was the only one which I truly loved. Ironically, I was tired of the House of M stuff and just read this one to finish them off. Instead, I found a great tragic story about a group of villains who start off with bad intentions and end up finding a purpose and trying to make positive change in the world, making up for their past mistakes. This was the best House of M book in my opinion by far.

    I love The Hood, so no brainer for me to pick this up. I love The Hood so much that I hyped down reading this but when I started reading it, I was glued, he is "The Don" for Marvel, what I love more is how much the rest of his crew are actually powerful they are just made to be pushover's in the other comics but not this one they all kick ass.

    I like Chris Gage's writing a lot, particularly in his Avengers Academy run in recent years. But this is awfully dependent on a ream of superhero and villain and Marvel make-believe alternate history. Sweet ending, though.

    Surprisingly good, but I am a sucker for Byronic heroes.
