    This book was hyped up as an alien invasion thriller when it was announced, but it's turned into something completely differentan offbeat Elseworlds that wastes no time making permanent status quo changes to its universe. Read Full Review

    Though not the epic knock-down drag-out fight some may have been expecting, the ending of this comic opens up some very interesting possibilities for a sequel series. Read Full Review

    Batman Fortress finale certainly defies expectations creating a unpredictable conclusion that might warrant revisiting this particular corner of the multiverse. Read Full Review

    While the landing was shaky, Fortress' last issue did find its footing in more ways than one. Read Full Review

    Fortress still isn't the worst Batman comic ever published but it might be the least essential. I'd rather read the Dark Knight Strikes Again or Batman: Odyssey over this any day. At least those are entertaining in their insanity. This is just a dull half-story that didn't need to be told. Save your money. Read Full Review

    Gary Whitta pulls it out in the end, for an interesting ending, and showing The Batman Bruce Wayne defending Superman to the very end, as the alien intergalactic force comes from Kal-El as a Kryptonian, and they consider all Kryptonians as war criminals. The moment of The Batman defending the "most powerful man on Earth" against alien arrest "over my dead body" was a great moment in comics history. DC Comics has far far too few such uplifting moments of loyalty.

    Superman Kal-El comes off as uneven, however, which may trouble some readers. Clearly he should have warned Earth's heroes, rather than hide in the Fortress of Solititude. That decision cost the lives of too many, including Cyborg, who finally receives a merciful burial b more

    This ending was a bit off. But I really enjoyed the mini as a whole, so I'm not too concerned about it.

    DC paid someone for this? This entire series has been a waste of time and money. Don't bother reading this comic. Instead dig out some older elseworld books from your collection or, better yet, support the hobby and buy a nice new graphic novel of older elseworld content to enjoy.
