    In case you're wondering, Green Arrow does make an appearance in the story. He's full of dated philosophy that leads to wonderfully antiquated dialogue. He looks like an escapee from the Village People. In short, his cameo leaves a big grin on your face. Read Full Review

    The issue certainly starts off strong as we see Josiah Power falls victim to an attack that is sure to leave one wondering if Power Company is going to lose its founder before the first year is done. The issue also does a fairly good job setting up it's various plots, as we have the rest of our cast involved in three separate plots, with Striker Z & Manhunter's encounter with Green Arrow being the section of the issue that I'm most interested in. Now I'll admit I'm not a huge Green Arrow fan (Hawkeye rules!), but I do enjoyed the character when a writer understands the type of situation that works for the character, and Manhunter is exactly the type of character who would rub Oliver the wrong way. The situation with Skyrocket's group also caught my attention, as there is an element of mystery thanks to Blackmass' presence, though I must confess I can't quite recall if the character was truly dead at the end of the "Joker: Last Laugh" miniseries.
