Garbage, complete and total garbage. If you're a fan of the Flash series or Wally West they basically wipe their backsides with your preferences. DC should hang their heads in shame over this.

You have got to be kidding me... after reading page after page of Death Metal forcing the word 'hope' into my skull, this is the byproduct? Hey, remember when Tom King made Wally a killer and no one was happy? How about we don't do that again.

Jokes aside, this was pathetic.

For some dumb reason, I thought since Dan Didio left that Wally would start getting better treatment. Nope because guess what? Wally's evil again, wow haven't seen that before. It's such a fall from grace for a character who literally carried the name and mantle for over 2 decades with some of the best runs in comic book history to just get shafted by the company due to one writer's love for Ba more

One of the main reasons DCEU is so loathed and ridiculed is not that it just goes against the source material and tries to change it completely, mold it into something that its directors would personally like, but because it never improves. Its directors don't learn their lessons and are allowed to repeat the same mistakes over and over again with no consequences other than box office failures and more

Personally I liked it, maybe because it is the first issue I read, however I give you the reason for DC's attitude about the characters, he always wants quick money and forgets quality.

Trash that can't decide whether he wants to recap the Flash's characters or dump once more on a Wally West. Mindscape travel? What? I don't get this issue or the decisions that went into publishing it. Art mostly okay from Eaglesham.

It exists. The art looked mostly nice, the stories somewhat intriguing. I don't get why this wasn't a natural plot development in the monthly Batman or Detective Comics series. As a set of miniseries in an elseworld limited high priced book? It's pointless. I would love to read a real Tim Fox as Batman story, set where it really has an impact on DC continuity.

It feels so messy. I really don't like the idea how DC makes more and more one-shots that are required to read so that you understand the main book. Why not make them part of the main series?

Your answer to Scott Snyder lies in the fact that he's going mostly independent after this. Clearly he is not writing this series based on any ownership in the ongoing narrative after this series ends. He isn't going to be the Justice League ongoing writer like after Metal. He isn't going to be a character book writer like for Batman. This was supposed to be basically the whacky conclusion to his splintered version of the DC Universe.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

DC editorial convinced him to make this "count" so they could try another patch on their broken continuity. I still don't think any of this will really matter going forward. That's always just the buzz word these companies tell you to get your buy-in to huge costly events. "Read this. It changes everything." I only bought issue 1 out of morbid curiosity, and I wasn't enticed to read further.
