The greatest villain of the UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY is the mysterious DESTINY MAN, the dark god of the plains, the conqueror who believes he is destined to rule the New America. Now, in this special issue, dive into the insanity of his past and learn why his ultimate destiny…is to rule it ALL!
But Why Tho?Undiscovered Man: Destiny Man #1 is simply brilliant. The character of Destiny Man has been this constant menace attacking the team and never truly leaving them alone. His dedication to hunting down the Graves is explained much better because he is family to them.
The Super Powered FancastThe Story: Snyder and Soule reveal the horror at the heart of a villain in this one shot and that horror is compelling. They’ve crafted a villain who is a victim of circumstance and seeing his journey is engaging and interesting. The story gives a great insight into the events after the country sealed itself off and you get to see how the decline of the zones happened through the eyes of the Destiny Man. I cannot wait to get back to the bigger story now that I know more about one of its biggest antagonists. The Art: Camuncoli and Marcello Grassi deliver powerful visuals throughout the issue. The art keeps you involved with not only the tension of the story, but the emotion of the character.
ComicBook.comIn a book that's been entirely about introducing a whole new world, few issues have done that world-building than this Destiny Man special. Throughout this story, you find out more about the mysterious villain of Undiscovered Country, including a heartbreaking origin that sets the antagonist on his bath. The plot of this one-shot is slow to move forward given its introductory nature, and there's little plot to get interested in. What this issue does have a fair amount of, of course, is character — for better, or for worse. It's simultaneously a nice breakaway from the main story while also adding to it and moving this grand scheme along.

AIPTThe Destiny Man: Special presents an origin story that gives more personality to the mysterious villain. Although it doesn't move the plot forward in big leaps, it's a welcoming break in the series, taking time to build on the character of the Destiny Man -- a character that's sure to play another pivotal role in the series once it resumes in July 2022 with a new story arc. Fans who continue to follow the series will appreciate its character development, while those who have yet to experience the series may find a compelling reason to follow the journey of the dark god of the plains.
DC Comics NewsI'm still a fan of what this can become. This issue goes back to an origin story that is much needed in terms of defining and redefining the character of Destiny Man. However, blending this in with the remainder of the series and getting back to curing the Sky Virus is how you got me into reading this book. Can we move that along as I appreciate the history lessons, but I bet the people outside of the Undiscovered Country need their heroes to move this along a bit!
