Perfect in just about every way. Good extra content for the event, superb Tony S. Daniel art, a killer cover, and a fun and twisted take on Bruce. I would read a miniseries about Bruce becoming Doomsday.

Mostly just a roll call issue to see what the League is up to. Even the Liam Sharp art is a little off. There were some good scenes, but I wasn't a fan of his take on Flash or Green Lantern.

An okay ending, but seriously, what is up with Marvel's events ending with an overly narrated issue? Why can't we just watch the events play out without cheesy overly dramatic monologue text from Lightning? It's like a person talking to you in third person. Very off putting.

Competently made, and the art is decent, but this is not my jam. The story is one I've seen a million times - old grizzled killer is brought back into the business after his family is killed. This is only $1.50, so it's not a terrible read for the price.
