    On the whole, many subplots are explored, and a few characters get deeper exploration than theyve had in months. As a single issue in the series, it does more right than wrong, despite my rather picky gripes. As a continuation of a series that is flawed at its core, its not really addressing any of my concerns and seems to be setting up plotlines to fall victim to the glaring plot holes inherent in the concept. Time will tell, and a guest appearance by the presumably new Suicide Squad may breathe some life into the book since the Great Ten appearance was pretty interesting last issue but a book that relies on cameos is sure to crumble at its core.
