Issue three opens with a funny single page splash showing Frostbite and Thunderhead hanging the sword of the giant mummy that they dispatched in issue two as Bonfire admires their respective backsides. The series again concentrates more on conversation than battles as the Young Heroes discuss subjects like the mysterious mummy they just fought, which superheroes have the best costumes, what’s the deal with blue Superman’s powers and other random topics. Meanwhile, in the gym, Frostbite is still upset at the way Bonfire seemed attracted to him and then turned her affections to Thunderhead. He takes out his frustrations by constructing a giant ice sculpture. Hard Drive tells the others his concerns that Frostbite might be feeling alienated and lonely and takes them to see the ice sculpture. But as Bonfire discovers, this isn’t just any ice sculpture. It contains a hidden message that only she can read by accessing one of her abilities, the power to see strange temperature patterns. An ability that she shares with Frostbite.
Before Bonfire can investigate this revelation more closely, the team discovers that the mysterious Mummy has turned up again to attack the same army base. When they arrive they are happily surprised to see Superman battling the giant mummy. They lend a hand but it’s Frostbite who ends up incapacitating the Mummy by freezing it solid. This keeps the Mummy from escaping into another dimension which is how it escaped the unwitting Young Heroes during their last confrontation. In the aftermath of the battle, the star struck Young Heroes gather around Superman. Hard Drive asks Superman to join their team. Superman kindly declines due to other responsibilities. Hard Drive presses the issue. But when Superman declines again, Hard Drive not only loses his temper but bursts into tears and runs away. The other Young Heroes are shocked by the behavior of their usually composed team mate. All of them except Monster Girl who has a devious smile on her face.
As in issue one, issue two and three have enjoyable writing by Dan raspier and wonderfully whimsical art by Dev Madan on pencils and Keith Champagne on inks. Madan has such a great spirit of fun. These characters are just a joy to look at and Madan and Raspler are able to make each of them leap off the page. Issues 2 and 3 continues with the theme of showing what young, impressionable heroes do on their off hours which is to gab about their favorite subject--superheroes. Unlike the majority of comics of the day, Young Heroes In Love was definitely not grim and gritty. These are fun, light hearted comics with characters who are fun to look at and listen to.
In the back of issues 2 and 3 we get pictures of some of the team members along with an odd little personalized poem for each. For example, under Frostbite we get “Not your basic lean and mean, not your basic vanilla ice cream, not your basic polar extreme, not your basic metagene” Apparently this was simply filler while waiting for the letters section to kick in. But the editors promise to give the readers a letters section for issue 4.
