At the risk of unfairly focusing on one detail, Cassie one-punching Despero (who I seem to recall posed a threat to the entire Justice League a few times) does neither of them a favor. Bendis obviously wanted a big-name JLA villain for her to take down, so he spun the wheel and it landed on “Despero”. Because, you could literally put any baddie capable of being punched in there (I think of t more

Cates seems to be another excellent indie writer who's a bad fit for shared universe work. He may have a good idea for a story here, but like Death of the Inhumans it's awkwardly jammed into existing continuity. In an indie series, you can write a story in which it's reasonable to kill a bunch of the most powerful beings in the universe to prevent a cosmic tyrant from reincarnating in their bodi more

I didn't like:
