BM
The last issue before the wedding, and it’s just what we really needed. A heart to heart between Catwoman and the Joker. Two villains, with Batman from the start. Both, trying to save Batman in two completely different ways. Their gossip about the past, and the villains they called friends. Catwoman is a hero, now. With friends who truly care about her well-being. Joker is a villain to end all villains, with nothing and no one. Just how he wants it. there was something almost tragic about the two of them talking, and it was fantastic.
JL
Already so many questions! The formation of the Ultraviolet Corps is one of the coolest things I’ve seen in years, and the mystery of who that baby is, is going to be ridiculous. Lex Luthor clearly is several steps ahead of everyone, but the reason is still a mystery, as well. This has already been a great read, but the questions just keep stacking up on top of one another. Hopefully, we get at least one answer, soon.
RH
As hard as he tries, Red Hood will always be a great confidant to Batman. Batman trusts him, even with the life of his fiancee. While this seemed the most throwaway of the Wedding Prelude books, it was also the most charming. Interestingly, the Joker story was still pushed forward, bit by bit. That’s culminating into quite the build for a crazy event.
MOS
Rogol Zaar is clearly a formidable foe, but he’s new to Earth and the effects that a yellow sun has on Kryptonian physiology. He could barely control its effects on himself. The fight was brutal and great, but the real revelation is the identity of the person appearing in the Kent family kitchen being Jor-El. Is this Doomsday Clock Jor-El? Another Jor-El? Does Doomsday Clock not affect Man of Steel? There are a lot of questions. Because Clark seemed more than calm in the face of all of this.
BNB
This is coming to a pretty grand conclusion, with a shocking twist that now makes perfect sense. King Elatha, thought murdered, was still alive and opening the causeways. Freeing his folk, and helping them to remember, but in his quest he has unleashed an ancient evil, and now the world will pay the price. This looks to be a pretty grand battle, and I hope that the final issue pays off as much as the rest of the story has.

THOR
This was a great way to get back to basics with The God of Thunder. Now that Jane Foster is no longer Thor, the Odinson must prove himself worthy once again, and he must do this all the while trying to rebuild a destroyed Asgardia. The moment where Juggernaut revealed himself as a the avatar of a God to fight the God of Thunder was fantastic. Cain Marko seems to have really supplanted himself in the face of pop culture lately, and it’s pretty great.
21
The Council of Reeds has returned with a more personal task to complete: No More Dooms. Victor is given yet another task to redeem himself in the face of his rival, and once more he fails the test. I want to hope that this quest with Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm would help show him the his virtue even more, but it looks like it may end up with the opposite effect. The big thing here? His memory revealed that Reed and Sue are still alive, with their children, traversing the cosmos.
BG
This one had less repercussions than the other Prelude to the Wedding books, but it was still a fun read. Batgirl has proven herself time and time again in the face of adversity, being easily the best of the Bat-Family. But, the big takeaway is the reveal that Harley Quinn is looking for the Joker during his pre-wedding rampage. Probably in an effort to stop him from ruining her friend, Catwoman’s big day. But, who knows?
GL
There were some great revelations and unity happening in this book. Just like Wonder Woman wearing Element X in Dark Knights: Metal created the New Gods, Hal Jordan wearing it created the Darkstars. Both wishes made on a darkened universe that were twisted and warped. It’s a fantastic way of pulling things together and unifying the universe, Post-Metal. Also, the personal story of Guy and his Father, being saved by Arkillo in a show of friendship was great. Those two have real chemistry, and it elevates the book even more when they’re together.
MM
As this series has gone on, it’s gotten less confusing, and more charming. Showing more of the mundane work that goes into Wars between planets full of Gods. Like peace summits, and small moments. It was amazing to see Kalibak pull out a pair of glasses because he needs to see the terms. It was a bit predictable in the end, with Jacob Free, the son of Big Barda and Mister Miracle, being the biggest bargaining chip, though not one that they put on the table.
HM
Hawkman has always been one of the richer characters as far as lore is concerned. His past allows him to work in more mythical things, like the introduction of Gorilla City into the history of the Earth, trade-routes and such. Not to mention the reveal of a Kryptonian Hawkman, as well as a Hawkman from the planet Rann, and the confirmation that the Thanagarian Hawkman was one and the same. All through reincarnation. With the history of DC Comics at its feet, this should be a fun read.
PM
Yes! Oh man, it’s so nice to have Eel O’Brian back in his own solo story. Plastic Man is one of the best heroes in all of comic books, and I missed his plucky humor so much. He’s so nonsensical. It was smart to re-tell his origin story for newer fans as he’s a bit older of a character who hasn’t been explored much in the last 20 years. But, now he’s back! And I could not be happier about it. On top of that, Gail Simone was a perfect choice to write the character.
FL
And the race is on! I can’t help but side with Wally West on this one. Barry Allen has lost things, but he always still remembers those pains, and exactly how they were taken from him. Wally’s children, his entire past, was taken from him and he never even knew it. That was Barry’s fault. It’s tragic that this is happening, but things are building to quite the head in the world of The Flash.
MOS
This was some seriously heartbreaking writing. Kandor has been a mainstay in Superman lore for years, and its destruction – the murder of millions of Kryptonians trapped in a bottle for centuries is simply tragic. And it showed. The loss that Superman and Supergirl felt was real, and their anger and panic showed on the page. That was the masterful writing we’ve been looking out for with Bendis and he finally broke it out here.
ww
First off, Jason seemed to fit in pretty well with the rest of the Justice League. I could very well see him filling in for Diana on a Justice League International team, or something along those lines. Next, King Best is one of the most throwback villains I have seen in quite some time. He’s massive, styled like the 60’s villains of old, and honestly already quite the delight of a villain. This is a great new rogue for Wonder Woman if he manages to stick around.
