That was the absolute best way to reintroduce newer readers to General Sam Lane and his tensions with Superman, while also creating a new arc involving Hank Henshaw and the inevitability of the corruption of Superman’s Kryptonian technology. I’m not sure where that story is going, but it’s sure to blow up in Superman’s face in some crazy way.
There are so many moving pieces to the story taking place in Detective Comics right now, but like a game of chess, each piece is vital to the endgame, and it’s looking to be a great story. Batwoman and the Colony, the fall of the Knights Program and Batman’s unraveling trust, Tim’s interactions with Ulysses Armstrong. These are all leading to something bigger, and better, and it will be fun to see where it leads.
The thought of Zod and his family playing possum against the Green Lantern Corps, and then just absolutely laying waste to an entire squad of Lanterns is insane. That was one of the most brutal beatdowns I have ever seen a Green Lantern endure, and seeing Zod and Hal Jordan fight each other at full strength is going to be quite the sight.
That was easily the most somber and straightforward issue of Mister Miracle, and it was a joy to read. I’m honestly hoping that this is all, in some way, canon, and Jacob being a New God becomes a thing that affects other books in some way. The back-story for Barda and Scott was nice, and the way they named their son was fitting, given their history together. Definitely a beautiful read.
This is easily one of the best stories Flash has had since Rebirth started. Grodd is a believable villain with a great plan, full of twists and turns. Each time we think the Flash Family might have gained the upper hand, it was still always part of his plan. I’m looking forward to the conclusion of this arc, because it’s sure to be a good one.
The new, more powerful, Jason is definitely an intriguing player in all of this. Given the hint of the Greek Pantheon from the past, it’s probably going to be the Old Gods that gave Jason his newfound abilities and golden armor, but it’s still too hard to tell at this point. The biggest takeaway from here? Darkseid is getting desperate, and invading A.R.G.U.S. headquarters seems like a hell of a risky thing to do.
Now that is how you introduce a kick-ass multiverse-trekking story. Such an interesting plot, with one of the most insane multiversal twists I have ever seen. Doom becoming Galactus and swallowing the entire universe?! That is anime level crazy, and I absolutely love it. It’s stories like this that make me miss the Fantastic Four.
