    Perhaps the best part of this entire issue-- maybe this entire miniseries-- is the ending which caps the whole "Cry for Justice" story off with finality, definitely telling us, what happened to the key villain....so we know this plotline isn't something that isn't going to turned into another eight-issue summer event. It provides a great deal of satisfaction after we were led along for so many issues. Read Full Review

    This story deserved better than it got all the way around. Robinson had a fun, bombastic, over-the-top of over-the-top story planed out, but deadlines and continuity knocked the knees out from under it, giving the readers a shell of what could have been. Now, at the very least, we're ready to move forward. The balance has been struck as this title catches up to the stories it was supposed to precede. What happens to the characters from here remains to be seen in some cases, such as Shazam (that's what we're still calling Freddy, right?). Other cases -- such as Green Arrow -- will be followed up on in a very high profile manner very soon. I hope those tales don't get spoiled. Read Full Review

    But even this scene ... the dramatic last page of the series ... fell flat. From a story point of view, I can't get around the fact that Prometheus dies this way. Here is a villain so prepared that he has a defense against everything ... including having nanites to defeat the Atom in his blood. He had shown himself to be protected against telepathy and magic. But his helmet isn't arrow proof? Just a plain old steel-tipped arrow is what brings him down? Really? Read Full Review

    Here's hoping that the real James Robinson shows up on the monthly Justice League of America comic, because he sure dropped the ball on this one. Avoid at all costs. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 8, 2010

    I just cant get past the thought that this horrifying series of developments was created to somehow make Roy and Ollie more Punisher-esque, and weve been down that road before. Read Full Review

    I've not liked this story line from near the beginning. We've seen heroes out of character, acting stupidly, in the wrong cities of operation, and drawn wrong. Those who were defending the series kept saying things like "Oh, it's ok, they are just building Prometheus back up to be an incredibly dangerous foe, like he was supposed to be." Well" great. Now he's dead. So no real big build up there, was there? So we end with what here? The villain won, many characters died, and Green Arrow decided to become a murderer. Interesting that Prometheus can outfight the Flashes and Kryptonians, deflect energy blasts away, but can't stop a simple incoming arrow. I've tried to stay semi-objective on these reviews, but I just can't anymore. This was badly done all the way along. Read Full Review

    Cry for Justice #7 might be the worst comic I've ever read, and I've read a lot of crappy comics. Thanks to Cry for Justice, I will no longer think of James Robinson as the writer of Starman. Instead, I will now forever think of him as the man who wrote the script to the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen film, and of course this disastrous, detrimental mess of a mini-series.

    As for my final thoughts on this comic, I guess all I can say is that it disappointed me. I think this story could have easily played out without the maiming of Roy Harper or the death of his daughter, and still had a huge emotional impact. Read Full Review
