    But like I said before, the most important question when dealing with a story like this one is whether or not it is entertaining in and of itself. Although this issue is clearly trying to serve a utilitarian purpose in raising a once mighty villain back to the top, it did manage to provide an enjoyable read as well. Even if Gates' Prometheus doesn't quite sing as much as Morrison's did, Gates' take is still a lot of fun to follow, and I enjoyed seeing him drag himself up from out of the gutter. Gates was thankfully shrewd enough to pepper in plenty of his backstory, which is as inspired and interesting as any villain's out there. Along with artist Federico Dallocchio, who comes across as a sort of Michael Gados-lite, the writer manages to deliver a worthwhile read that also accomplishes some important DCU house-cleaning. In these regards, I'll call this one-shot a success, even if it's not a mind-blowing one. Read Full Review

    (Federico Dallocchio's unique art is almost worth the price of the comic alone, so give it a look in CBR's preview!) Read Full Review

    Theres a lot of story in this 20-plus pages of comic book. Gates does a great job of making Prometheus a legitimate threat. Readers should be excited to see what kind of havoc he is planning for the heroes of the DC Universe. Read Full Review
