Mark Millar has a flare for characters, but he really needs to start paying attention to the details because they are adding up. How can a ship turn its weapons around and shoot its occupants without destroying its own hull? And I didn't realize that Earth was part of this universe, but that trivia about stretching earth's history over a single day isn't quite right. Earth has existed roughly 4.5 billion years as opposed to 4 billion years, and that two minutes Millar referenced is roughly when mammals appeared, give or take. Homo Sapiens would exist less than four seconds to midnight and Homo Sapiens Sapiens would appear even closer to midnight than that. Maybe it's a typo and is supposed to say two seconds to midnight as opposed to two minutes? That would make a lot more sense. As you can see, it took me out of the story, lol. Another thing that bothered me was when Aine ordered the Royal Guards to genocide themselves, that's f-ed up and was totally uncalled for, they were completely loyal, what a little monster Aine is. All that being said, this was still a fun, action packed issue and the twist was revealed beautifully. If you're interesting in another comic that alludes to abuse, I'd recommend Buzzkill, it skirt the topic a little more artfully.
