This is exactly what I have expected from this story. A fun story, with all the Superman's foes teaming up. There isn't anything deep here, but you get exactly what the book's title says: an action-filled comic.

I'll be honest and say I picked this up because the relationship between Diana and Steve was so good in the WW movie and was riding on that high. I almost cried man tears when Trevor made the ultimate sacrifice and I'm convinced it definitely was for real, because if you think about it, the movie is a giant flashback and in the present Diana thanks Bruce for "bringing (Steve) back to her" by being more

It's ok, it's just that Steve Trevor is not that much of an interesting character on its own. The ending indicates that there will be a followup on this story, but I would not be disappointed if it wouldn't happen.

Immonen's art really worked here and I finally understand the praise for him. The issue itself was alright as well, nothing groundbreaking, just some nice action scenes between Spidey and Osborn. The outcome was quite a letdown, but it's not like this wasn't expected from Dan Slott.
