The Amazonian casket has the potential to remake Earth-2 and end the years of struggle and survival, but is using it too great a risk? The Ultrahumanite doesn't care. In a last stand, the heroes must stop him from using it to shape a new reality where he is in control-or annihilate Earth-2 entirely. Don't miss this turning point in Earth-2 history!

    The pay-off is excellent, reminiscent of the conclusion to one of DCs big crossover series from the 90s. And it sets up the final issue, an epilogue to the whole sad saga of Earth 2. Read Full Review

    “A Whole New World” is a great read! Dan Abnett shows us a world where our heroes are not only flawed, but they actually failed. They failed saving their world and in those ashes they're trying to build something better. The Wonders face the same challenges from the villains of old, and although there's still a Superman, Batman, and a Wonder Woman to protect this new world — will it be enough? Combined with the writing talents of Abnett and the artistry of Hernandez you see how grim this Earth 2 is in a great detail. Abnett shows us a world where our heroes actually failed us, but they're still fighting the good fight anyway. I can't wait to see the ramifications of Fury opening Pandora's Box as Abnett gives us a very satisfying cliffhanger to think on until the next issue! Read Full Review

    The issue is basically a series of heroes and villains showing up just in the nick of time, which does lead to a bit of repetitiveness. That said, the ending is a nice twist and leaves the future of the Wonders and their world up in the air. Read Full Review

    This issue feels like it's trying to fool people into thinking that everything going on here is a big deal, but really it's all smoke and mirrors, while Earth 2 desperately tries to get itself somewhere safe and decent with its story so a Rebirth can come and pull this series away from its "has been" status.   Read Full Review
