What role do superheroes play on a new world where society has to rebuild itself from the ground up? Two cities are about to go to war over limited resources and this new Earth-2 is beginning to look as familiar as the old one. Can Captain Steel and Power Girl stop the fighting before it starts?

    What is there not to like about this issue? We got our solution to our natural resources problem and we don't need to wait to find out who was the mastermind behind all of this (if you saw the spoiler). I am curious to find out how he's going to take advantage now that Alan has given up his ring and powers for that matter to our new Earth. I'm hoping that Queen Marella and Fury step in when stuff hits the fan again " can't wait to see that! Read Full Review

    This is the time to jump on this book. Its in a totally different direction from the original original Earth 2 concept when it was launched under James Robinson 4 years ago. Whatever editorial mandates have contributed to its unevenness, it seems like this is the point in which the concept becomes relevant. However, with Rebirth on the horizon, one questions the future of this version of Earth 2. Read Full Review

    If you were like me and were worrying that this story arc was leading to another war type situation that all the Earth 2 titles have been plagued with....... well, this issue might just calm your nerves a bit and give you something that we've seriously missed from this series.......... hope.  With decent art and colors and an interesting turn that takes this story into a different direction, I find myself interested for the first time in awhile about where this series will go before it gets Rebirthed.

    With only one issue left in solicitations, it's doubtful Earth 2: Society will live up to its potential, but the sharp art and low-calorie action may prove enough for some readers. Read Full Review

    Despite the cartoonish look of earth 2 society, the story is what makes this issue really good! The ending wow I'm glad humanite is back on earth two and actually looks like the classic humanite! DC PLEASE KEEP THIS BOOK GOING PAST 14 , there's so much potential in the right hands !

    I enjoyed this resolution of stopping the war and the further promise of Atlantis and the Amazons making contact again. I also really like how Batman and his team reasoned their actions and the resolution with Hourman. Would hope that there'll still be more after rebirth.

    Decent conclusion to the arc but I wasn't sure how the thing with Green Lantern worked exactly because I thought he had to sacrifice his humanity in World's End #26? Maybe I was overthinking it.
