I enjoyed the first chapter more, although with Saturn Girl and Johnny Thunder both introduced now, I'm wondering how they're going to wrap up everything in two issues. Fabok and Porter have different styles so if you wait until all four chapters are out and then read them all in one sitting, it can be bit jarring. This chapter wasn't bad but it leaves us on a cliffhanger meeting between Batmen of more

I enjoyed this issue and it's starting to clarify things up but it's also proving that trying to mesh two continuities together is always going to be messy and a bit awkward. We see New 52 Superman come home to news that Lois is knocked up which messes up the New 52 continuity entirely and Jon's original birth was during Convergence and only Thomas Wayne of Flashpoint timeline was present.

There are hints of Nolan's TDKR in this issue for obvious reasons. King doesn't officially put his stamp on it until the end where Bruce talks with his mother. Other than that, most of the other story elements are borrowed from past Batman vs. Bane stories. 20 issues in and I'm still on the fence with King's Batman. On the one hand, it's very character driven unlike Snyder that had a slowly unfold more

Lobo isn't really a team player and he's a bounty hunter, so I don't understand why he would stay and follow Batman's orders. During the JLvsSS crossover, I could kind of get why he went along with Waller but this is just weird.

This event was a disappointment for me. What happened in the story is exactly what I thought would happen, but with very little explanations. Apart from the Clark Kent revelation in the second issue, nothing really surprised nor excited me. Still, the new status quo is interesting and I know that the best is yet to come for Superman.

Myx was a welcome surprise but yea the event sort of felt flat at the ending. I expected more. I personally was fine with the ending of New 52 Superman during the Last Days of Superman event right before Rebirth. DC doesn't have to constantly try to explain themselves with New 52 Superman, it's over, it's done, move on. I find it weird they're actually mixing the two up with the whole blue and red schtick. Clark should be so conflicted with memories of relationships with Diana and Lois.
