    Was this a happy ending? No. Was it a fitting one? Absolutely. Heroes In Crisis #9 is a painful, uncompromising tale about life. In this world we don't always get a happy ending… that's what the MCU is for. Every now and then I just need a solid kick in the feels, just to wake me up and make me appreciate all that I have.

    Beyond The Panel - Jideobi Odunze May 29, 2019

    Like I said, Heroes in Crisis is far from a perfect book, but the message sings true. We invest in these heroes, villains, people, because they are every bit as flawed as we are. No mask, tights, or cape can hide this truth. Heroes in Crisis is not just another gimmick, because a gimmick is sold to you for shock value. When you get past everything tragic, the message in this story is all that matters. Call that being “political”, but this is what it means for your heroes to live in the real world, as we do.

    Ultimately and overall I am happy with how this series played out as a whole. We didn't get the super happy ending we all wanted and that's okay because what we were given was a chance to see one of our favorite characters change and grow in a new way. If you, like Wally, have hope, maybe this new chapter in the story of Wally West will make him even stronger and give us even more reasons to believe that our heroes can overcome struggles and that so can we.

    I can't help but think, what if the series didn't meander for nine issues or if the series' selling point wasn't a murder mystery? To like a story for its pieces is not the same as liking it as a whole, and I keep thinking about the fact there were sparks that fully demanded my attention and their long, long stretches of time where I was largely indifferent. Ultimately, Heroes in Crisis simply exists, and I find myself thinking about interludes more than anything else. Read Full Review

    So, while it feels like Heroes in Crisis is going to be a divisive comic for as long as people are still talking about it, I can say with a fair amount of certainty that I've enjoyed the ride. The whole "superheroes struggle with mental health too" theme is well executed, the artwork is terrific throughout, and even though the "murder mystery" we were promised at the beginning ended up being a bit of a damp squib, I honestly can't be too mad about the way things turned out.

    This issue is fine. I like the intentions and the thematic ideas are great. I love what this story has to say about trauma and how King applies that to super heroes. But the issue doesn't have much beyond these ideas. This story doesn't have much to offer in terms of plot or even character development. I'm not sure why Batgirl is even in this or why the Trinity was such a big part of the early issues only to disappear from the narrative. The story comes from a good place and that is worth something even if I didn't find it that engaging to read. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart May 29, 2019

    I recognize that even nine issues is a limited amount of space to explore complicated issues in a comic book, but Heroes in Crisis #9 ends on such a profoundly unsatisfying and hollow note that it makes the rest of the series feel pointless in retrospect as well. This series could have passed on the twists and turns of Wally evading capture by Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, and focused instead on what led him to lose control — or what can be done to provide our heroes the emotional support they need to make sure it never happens again. Instead, Heroes in Crisis doesn’t so much miss the mark, so much as it fails to land on anything substantial at all. Read Full Review

    Tom King's Heroes in Crisis is a failure as far as I'm concerned. The book damages a great, legacy character, and this final issue fails to deliver a satisfying conclusion. I think we all know what Tom was going for here, but it didn't happen. Whether you blame Tom himself for this, Dan Didio, the "murder mystery," mistreatment of characters, editorial mandates" Whatever.

    Is this really the message that Tom King and DC want to put out there to their readers, any of whom could be having a mental health moment. When dealing with real life problems, I find this outcome wholly unsatisfactory and wholly irresponsible. Through comics, in fact all entertainment, you have an opportunity to reach people and change minds. Heroes in Crisis, in the very end, only manages to re-establish the stigma of mental health.

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk May 29, 2019

    Overall: Heroes in Crisis #9 was a complete fail. King ends this big event with a massive face-plant. DC should be embarrassed that they ever green-lit Heroes in Crisis in the first place. It is obvious that King had a little passion project that had enough content for a four issue mini-series and that is it. Either DC's editorial or King decided that this big event needed to be nine issues long. It clearly did not. On top of that, King then put out a story of low quality. Heroes in Crisis easily grabs the crown as DC's worst big event of all time. Read Full Review

    Finally this piece of crap is over and we can move on with our lives. Forget about it, and its awfulness. Apparently not much changed with this event - Ivy's back and her fan-fic relationship with Harley still exists (sigh...), Wally is alive, well and not insane... Hell, I have a feeling that other than few deaths, nothing happened in Heroes in Crisis. I guess that's a good thing, considering how bad it was.

    If I tried to find a fitting analogy, Heroes in Crisis would be a hooker. Pretty on the outside, because if there's one outstanding thing about this trainwreck, it'd be beautiful art. Yet rotten inside, infected with syphilis and so shallow minded, it makes you wonder how can she walk and talk at the same time.

    "Wait for the final issue" "You just don't get the story" "You are too stupid to understand it"
    "Everyone loves HiC and those who don't are clickbaiters"
    Well. Here we are. HiC is a collection of tropes coupled with some really nice (yet problematic) art. You can see that the artists, especially Mann - despite finding his portrayal of women problematic - loved working with this and put time and effort.
    But there is no plot. There is nothing. Just an incredibly offensive portrayal of mental health and mental health treatment. It's 2019. It's time to leave behind hurtful tropes of the past regarding mental health. HiC is not smart. It pretends to be in order to hide enormous plot holes, bad characterization and lazy writing. It more

    Seen people say that Heroes in Crisis is hated because they don't get the subtext -- you know, Wally dealing with loss and so on -- but if it really was about that, then we should have had a book that dealt with that. If that was really the case, why is that particular thing a small percentage of the story? Why is it a bad murder mystery that is not even resolved, but for a taped confession?

    In the end, we just get the heroes stopping Wally from killing himself, gets some hugs, and gets placed in JL jail... hooray *sarcasm*

    It's so weird that King can do an excellent book on anxiety and mental illness in Mister Miracle, and completely screw the pooch on the same topic just months later. The highest of highs, the lowes more

    To the people who said “wait for the final issue, you can’t judge an incomplete title”. We did and to no one’s surprise it did nothing to change how it’s perceived. This title is garbage, plain and simple. The worst “crisis” since Identity and wholly underserving of that moniker.

    The real crisis was King’s writing. There is nothing this issue did to resolve the various egregious faults of the issues preceding it and instead added more with what were infuriating and nonsensical therapy panels that purely showcase what little grasp he has of some of DC’s characters.

    The best part about this issue is that ends this abysmal, asinine event. It’s not worth reading, do not even entertain the notion of buy more

    Absolutely the worst event I’ve read. King knows jack shit about any of the characters and has zero business writing them. Wally killed and mutilated his friends because he was sad. Tried to kill himself after delaying the investigation for 5 days for reasons. Not any that make sense, just reasons. King has no grasp on how time trace works in any other comic book and tries to explain it in the most convoluted way and even puts in the comic how it doesn’t make sense. If you don’t understand it, don’t write about it. This goes even more for the entire mental health aspect which it is abundantly clear King knows nothing about. Boosters whole purpose in this comic was to get a body in the end and he seemed cool with it. No one is writte more

    i’m Struggling to understand why I dislike HoC. I believe superheroes comics should, in the end, be about hope and healing. Nevertheless, classics like watchman and sandman have a nihilist approach and I love them just the same. What I am trying to say is that even if I disapprove HoC dark tone and focus on trauma, I can respect Tom King’s artistic choices. The plot holes, easy solutions and bad characterizations, on the other hand, serve no artistic purpose and hinder the narrative. To summarize, I dont think HoC is bad because it seeks to pervert the expectations of the superheroes genre, I think it is bad because of poor plot and strange characterizations.

    It's hard to rate this book as a standalone as it is the culmination of the entire story.

    As a single issue, it had professional artwork and, occasionally, snappy banter.

    But did the larger story achieve the aims of the larger miniseries? Was there a (hopefully satisfying) resolution?

    In a word, NO.

    I've tried writing a reasonable analysis of this series three different times, but the conclusion I will instead go with is: The series is DONE. It is over. Let's move on.

    Hopefully, DC Comics will conveniently forget that the title ever existed and just move on.

    Honestly, I just can't see what Tom King saw in this one. This book has been such a downer, from start to finish, but for all the wrong reasons. This isn't some sort of provocative, grounded event like Identity Crisis, nor does this serve as an effective study/meditation on mental health. All we got was a flash in the pan at the start, with an opening plot line that we were already made aware of months in advance, a slog of filler issues and a drawn out narrative that took up the winter months (between this and Knightmares, King rung in the new year with two scoops of garbage), and a frustrating ending that turns Wally West into a walking cautionary tale for mental health. Really? They took one of the most important characters of the Rebirt more

    It’s all ogre now.

    As the series concludes, I can’t help but think of the initial intent with the series. It was a book that was supposed to highlight the importance of maintaining positive mental health and seeking help when appropriate. For that, we have to acknowledge that King meant well and I applaud him for it.

    The unfortunate thing is, every character was painted with the same brush. There is no differentiating between characters because they all talk and sound so similar. If mental health issues can be labelled as anything, it certainly wouldn’t be universal. Such a personal thing doesn’t affect all people the same. Not to mention, an addict does not have the same challenges to face as a PTSD sufferer more

    I don’t think this issue is that bad& looking back at the whole story it gave us a realistic take on what happens, when humans are confronted with things, that goes beyond their understanding& capacity. What I never liked about Rebirth was the idea, that the heroes just would be fine with having the memories of 2 separated lives. I can’t think of anyone staying sane& being able to deal with that. It was just bad writing back then. HIC finally adressed this issue& it’s good to see, that at least Wally seemed to have learned something about how selfish& irresponsible time travel is. Barry is responsible for what Wally did as well. This irresponsibility or rather stupidity has cost many lives. Something similar happened in Cosmic Odyssey more

    Honestly, in the end, "Heroes In Crisis" fails in almost everything it tried to do. From the story to exploring mental health, it was unsatisfying and boring.

    The only thing that this series did good (besides the amazing art) was making Wally, a very likable character, an unlikable piece of garbage, I really feel bad for his fans, he got treated like shit the whole event.

    Heroes in Crisis is finally over an what are we left with? What was the point of it all?

    I've reviewed all 9 issues of the series and my enthusiasm for the event and conclusion had all but waned. Likewise, my reverence for Tom King and his writing has been replaced with open skepticism. 

    Tom King was in the news a lot this week. First, he was dropped as lead writer of Batman. It was then announced that he would be getting a new series featuring Batman & Catwoman. This gesture is presumably a courtesy to the creator and a way for him to finish his long-running story although he will not be writing the flagship Batman title anymore.

    "It was a mistake"

    Is it really over? Has the nightmare finally ended? It has indeed.

    Heroes in Crisis finally reached its conclusion and it continued, to the very last page, to be the waste of a good artist and many beloved characters. If you ever want to give someone the definition of pointless and unnecessary, show him this title.

    This issue has literally nothing going for it. Even the art feels lazy at times. And the patients' interviews, something that for the most part was the strongest aspect of every issue, range here from stupid to moronic. Every Robin has an identity crisis, Catwoman can't speak like a normal person, Vixen is weird and Hal Jordan doesn't know what will power is. Really?! The only o more

    I'm very glad I didn't pay for this series myself.

    If it wasnt for the cool art this whole series was horrendous. If I wasnt such a sticklerfor completing series I start I would have dropped this after issue 2. I just dont get it. The whole sanctuary concept to me was treated as low level story line through out. It became just panels of heroes saying random lines that eventually I started skipping those pages. The whole murder angle could have been done in any other form of story but this series was pitched at an inside look into the inner workimgs of heroes ptsd and I just didnt get any of that from this book. Its like they abandoned the story just to tell this dumb murder tale that wasnt even good. I could go on but im just glad its over.

    So this was a thing that didn't happen. Or it did? The narrative by Tom King was convoluted and complicated yet completely simply to follow. The deconstruction of Wally West would be interesting to watch, if it didn't completely come out of left field to sell some comics. And the main reason I bought into this series, Booster Gold, was a complete let down. Do you even understand who these characters are, Mr. King? Booster has made a lot of progress, both emotionally and as a hero, over the time since his stint in the weekly 52 series and Booster Gold Volume 2, yet here in this series he is relegated to a moron again. While I loved the Bwa-ha-ha days, even there Booster showed more character development than Tom King would even care t more

    Story wise the conclusion to the above mentioned title was less than captivating. As an avid reader of The Flash you can imagine my disappointment to see a beloved character turned into this.

    I completely understand the point of the story but felt it losing its way near issue 4 to be honest. I have no issue with a troubled hero or even that they were responsible in the end as even our heroes make mistakes however to see him fall so far for no real reason other than to tie up a story filled with plot holes was devastating.

    I have no issue with good guys turning bad bad guys turning good or even grey but this run lacked sense and proper meaning and completely missed the point King was trying to make. This run will defini more
