I love benday dots and I love pre-digital coloring. If the comic uses those two things in its art, I'm on board.

Flash continues to be great, and this event is a blessing and a curse for this book: we derail the plot once more for an event, but hopefully this will reward the series in the long run with some character development and increased reader-ship.

I enjoyed this a lot. However, it's tough to know what kind of bearing it is going to have on the larger DCU. Clearly some, because Thomas Wayne acknowledges what happened to him in Justice League Incarnate.

Like other critics, the 3 is for the art. The story is so bad that it lowers what should be a higher art score.

The “story” has a whole issue to progress, but the whole of the issipue could be reduced to one page. It spins its wheels and is lost thanks to a confusing multi-timeline format. And King has totally forgotten about Phantasm.

To be fair, so had I, but remembered more

Henry Bendix's plans for ultimate control threaten every superhero on Earth. And, in trying to stand against the dictator of Gamorra, Superman makes himself a target of business and world leaders. He is seen by too many as a force that must be stopped. How much can even a Man of Steel stand against before he bends?
