As the hunt for the traitor who stalks Earth-2 comes to a close, the Fastest Man Alive may not be quick enough to escape his fate on this new world!

    Issue #5 has been just as unique and interesting as all of the previous issues, with the noteworthy exception that we finally have a villainous mastermind to focus on. The drama of the Flash shouldering the weight of the world was compelling and relatable, even it the flashback didn't seem to be as pertinent to the situation he was in at the time as it should've been. I love the introduction of Anarky even though it is a hyper powerful Jimmy Olsen instead of a dedicated twelve year old from Gotham. The fresh and unique angle of Earth 2: Society continues to rate at the top of my DC reading list. Read Full Review

    A strong entry into the Earth 2: Society line-up, this issue brings with it a look into the overwhelmed lives of the Wonders. While some can rise to the challenge, others must fall from the pack, but there are few things better than a redemption story. Read Full Review

    If we had time to see Jimmy fall from grace while getting to know him as a character in the process, then the final page might have had more impact on me as a reader. As of now it's just another sub plot that Wilson has laid even more foundation for. Hopefully there's some sort of pay off to all this. Read Full Review

    If you want to see the Flash simply get out of a rut because........ it's what the story needs at the time, then this issue is for you, but if you're looking for something more, than you should look somewhere else.  This series doesn't feel like it really wants to do anything and that apathy seems to be rubbing off on our heroes as well because throughout this issue, they all seem bored.  I love the Earth-2 heroes and it's the Earth 2 title that originally got me to start reading DC again, but this is so far removed from what that series was that it's almost unrecognizable........ and I don't like it.

    Overall, I don't like this issue. There are some interesting ideas with Jay as a character that I do genuinely like; I feel bad for the guy in this. But the tone and the unfocused narrative make this incredibly tiresome to read. I don't recommend it. Read Full Review

    We get another intake on the scattered lives of our superheroes as this month's point of view and flashback sequences focus on the Flash as he, Batman, and Superman attempt to stop the crashing of the TSS Overwatch-One command ship while traveling on board a breathtaking Batman aircraft by the brilliant Jorge Jimenez. The action revolves more around the Flash as we get an explanation on what he was up to during the initial days of the planet's landing and rebuilding phase for humanity on this new home. Like many have said before, this book will read better in a trade collection for those impatient for a quick explanation of this new Earth 2 status quo. It's a shame some people are dealing with this in an extreme scrutiny but that shouldn't more

    Weak main story and character choices / inconsistencies but art and most of the flashback were good.
