    An epic battle and a shocking finish. The only thing that brings this down in any way is that it steps into the murky waters of cross-over city, meaning that you technically need to read all the Superman titles before you read this (you dont), and OMAC as well. Apparently, you certainly need to read this before OMAC #4. A pity really, but aside from all of that, this issue itself is fantastic. Read Full Review

    That said, OMAC Project is now left with a bit of a quandary for its final few issues: it is without a star. Killer robots that can be anywhere at any time, controlled by a maleficent satellite that can see into the most hidden places on Earth, is pretty terrifying, but it doesn't give the reader the visceral sensation of just hating a bad guy. Max Lord was a terrific character. He was entertaining as the wisecracking businessman behind the Justice League, he was sinister as the cyborg Lord Havok (anybody remember this?), and he was a pure bastard as Checkmate's Black King. OMAC #4 deals with the aftermath of Lord's demise and the Brother Eye satellite's rise to power, and in a lot of ways this is still an exploration of Lord's influence: without him, Checkmate cannot exist. The pieces are swept off the board, game over. Brutal, powerful stuff. But what happens next? It's got to be more than killer robots. Read Full Review
