I loved this! Taking place at the same time as the second story in Frankenstein Vol. 1, these are the same events from OMAC's point of view and the continuing story involving Checkmate. I like Kevin Kho and his OMAC alter ego. This whole book basically covers his origin story and the time he's being controlled by Brother Eye. Both Checkmate and Cadmus are interesting organizations, which I'd like to see more of. There are some interesting battles and villains OMAC goes up against, including a guest appearance by both Frankenstein and later Superman. OMAC is an anti-hero to begin with but Kevin begins to regain a small amount of his own thoughts while under control and the ending brings him into his own right as a superhero and this is, unfortunately, where this series was cancelled. But not to worry, as he pops up here and there in the 52 universe again from this point on.
