It's a battle to the death at the Fortress of Solitude between Bizarro and a mind-controlled Doomsday. Only one will walk away from this battle.

    Batman-News - Elena Carrillo Oct 20, 2016

    If you were hoping to see the conclusion of this tale"as in anticipating closure here in Year Five, you probably haven't been paying attention to the fact that the whole point of this series was to lead up to the chaos we encounter at the start of the video game on which this was based. So no: there is no final resolution here, just a springboard for the next thing. It takes away nothing from the Shakespearean scope of this epic, however: Buccellato's work toward this summit has been an achievement, and the score of artists who have contributed along the way deserve all praise. Why wouldn't anybody want to tune in for the next part of this outstanding adventure? Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 3, 2016

    I knew this moment would come and while it left me a bit sad, the issue was dominated by Lex Luthor.  Buccellato shows him as a villain and a hero all wrapped up into one and while he could have ended it all here, he allowed Superman to live another day.  That's not the case with everyone in this issue and while it looks like Lex is in the clear, I'm sure this will come back to bite him in the ass one way or another.  I liked the tense storytelling, but I wish the art could have done it's part to make this issue as epic as it should have been.

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge May 5, 2016

    Injustice can be a bit uneven from issue to issue to be sure, but the concluding act to the Bizarro storyline is pretty strong and sets up things to come with what's going on with Lex and the uncertainty of others in the Regime. The heavy focus on action keeps the story elements lighter overall but there's some decent character material in the mix and some amusing ways to view things when it comes to Lex, a character that's rarely consistent to begin with. Combine that with some really good artwork from Miller and you get a solid issue that does the job and makes for a fun and enjoyable installment while we wait to get to something a little meatier.

    Graphic Policy - Brett May 4, 2016

    The chapter is entertaining in many ways but definitely not new reader friendly. Not too shocking since it's the last chapter for the latest arc. It's enough to make me want to go back though and see if the next chapter and arc might be a bit easier spot to start from. Read Full Review
