Number of Books: 1

Synopsis from dcuniverseinfinite.com: HEAVY METAL HEROES! They’re the bleeding edge of robotics technology, infused by inventor Dr. Will Magnus with abilities-and emotions-of the elements that bind our world together. They’re the Metal Men, the perfect combination of superhero and supercomputer…but like all computers, they can be hacked. Now a mysterious cyberterrorist known only as the Nameless has set his sights on these extraordinary androids-and that makes them a security risk the U.S. military can’t afford. Caught in the crossfire of the war on techno-terror, Magnus and the Metal Men will battle both sides, calling on amazing allies like the Justice League’s Cyborg to keep up the fight. But the greatest threat may be the next generation of technology. What will happen when they come face to face with…Metal Men 2.0?

Now that that’s over with, here are some discussion questions:

  1. Despite wanting to decommission the team General Scaeliti appear to express remorse for doing so. Why do you think that is?
  2. Throughout the storyline, various robotic DC superhero show up. Which hero (Robotman, Red Tornado, and Cyborg) has the most compelling interaction with the Metal Men?
  3. Why does the Nameless want the Metal Men? Do you find their motivation compelling or not? Explain.
  4. In what ways are the new Metal Men similar from the original? How are they different?
  5. After their battle with chemo. In what ways were the Metal Men changed in the finale?
