The most-talked-about miniseries of the year reaches its stunning finale! The mystery behind the murders at Sanctuary is solved, but the mind behind it is one the heroes never expected. With their deepest secrets exposed, the Trinity has to consider how to carry on. Should the tragedy cause them to redouble their efforts to help their hurting comra...

This is not very good issue.

Why? Because it tries to fit and event to a single issue. Sure, it is a what-if issue, but at times feels like filler or that everything happens so fast.

Lobo was great, but I hate what they did with Scot. Art is passable?

You know the archetype of an empty blockbuster action movie? It's shallow, so shallow in fact, you have to completely turn your brain off while watching it, to enjoy anything. People like Michael Bay and to a degree Zack Snyder built their careers on this.

I am a big Bane fan. For me, Bane has always been the best Batman villain, along with Joker. So of course I was excited for King's Knightfall.

And what a disappointment it has been. Not because of art. I love Janin's style and he really sold this fight for me. Which is why this comic isn't a 0/10 or 1/10.

But the writing. Why.

I called it Knightfall 2.0, since that is what I thought it would be, whe nissue 50 came out. Nowadays, I don't think this as Knightfall 2.0,due to disappointment it has been.

I really don't know what to think of this.

On the other hand, I liked it a lot. A great final issue that is bit sad and a nice send-off.

I didn't like Knightfall much. Too rushed, and so is this. Lois' reactions also feel way over-the-top. I would've like how corrupts her slowly, how she sees her actions slowly not mattering, if she does things like Clark.

This is the THIRD issue of this type in this run. It was lazy every single time. The way you properly set up a twist like that is that you foreshadow it. You leave connections and clues. You don't just think it up, not bake it into the background of the story, and then at the end go "Aha! I'm so smart!" I don't understand how anyone could read this and think it's good.

"No plan until you realize you have to give DC something so you make up some crap that makes it seem like it was all part of the plan" seems like the routine King went with this.

DC Stuff - Oct 16, 2019

remember, this is how Heroes in Crisis ended as well...the "Puddlers" were a clue at first and ended up being something Wally once heard Barry say and instead of clues and a solid look at the Sanctuary and it's AI we got time travel nonsense and Lagoon Boy no longer dying in a totally different way than we saw. Not to mention there was a Green Lantern dead which never was addressed. The only thing that Tom King plans are ways to fool people using social media!
