    There was a lot to like about this issue which helped fill in some background information on the characters while starting new plots. I love the Luthor moment. The hint at Deilan's origin is very intriguing. I love the subtle introduction of a Bat-Man/Wonder Woman romance. I love Rongpei, the vile jock who can't believe he lost. Even I Ching and his wisdom is a nice addition to the book. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 11, 2017

    Kenan begins the long and painful journey to mastery of his super powers, and it includes humiliation. And pain. Humiliating pain. We also learn more about Bat-Man's background, as well as some quiet time with Wonder-Woman that couldn't be afforded in previous issues. Plus, I-Ching is in this issue! If you can't appreciate the re-emergence of this racist caricature, then appreciate the appropriation of said caricature by an all-Asian create team. Can you dig it? Read Full Review
