The dialogue is terrible and the art is inconsistent from page to page. I might have enjoyed this if I was a teeanager, but I found the dialogue annoying and the story was very weak. I will not be picking up the next issue. Also, how does she not recognize captain America he doesn't age. He looks exactly the same as he did 70 years ago.

what a steaming pile of garbage this was. completely confusing. every 2-3 pages changes to a different story. sometimes with characters in both. for instance, for a few pages we see Wonder Woman in some place with Zeus and his parents... then on the very next page we see she's with Flash and the Lanterns doing something completely different. Ditch the Hitch!
