This book was extremely disappointing and had nothing that made me want to come back for another issue. Poor writing, poor art, desperately using blatant ripoffs of characters from other companies....just nothing worth taking another look at.

The apparent culmination of the Game of Thrones-style struggle for DC continuity supremacy is here, and I worry that the least potent of the mix won out.

Tom King fell by the wayside, his Heroes in Crisis devolving into a critical disaster. His Batman couldn't recover from the post-Catwoman non-wedding storylines. Now, his Strange Adventures and his forthcoming Bat/Cat miniseries have more

Well, the story is a convoluted mess of ideas that are poorly executed and most characters present do not seem to be acting and talking like themselves. The dialogue is poor, with some having clear errors. Lastly, JRJr’s art does the title no favors and make the issue as a whole mediocre.

How about ...more of the same. Nice art by Sharp and more garbage writing by Morrison, who just can't seem to get a handle on Hal Jordan.

Ulf - Mar 13, 2020

There we go! And he absolutely has a handle on Hal Jordan - he's riffing off the Hal as seen from the late 60s - early 80s, when he was a drifter (Toy Salesman/Truck Driver/Etc. etc.) Johns reduced him to a wiseguy who used the ring as a weapon - way too reductive. Read some GL from #50-75 by John Broome and company, and then some Moore backup GLC stories from the early 80s GL run, and you'll see Morrison has nailed Hal Jordan.

Batman wouldn’t investigate him because he’s a friend and saved his life before so there is a connection. Why are you so into Batman doing mindless things so that he appears as someone that is not human but a robot just doing everything with no emotion and guilt shown. Batman was never perfect in comics.

Talon1load - Mar 11, 2020

I don’t think Batman is a robot but saying he wouldn’t investigate a friend is stupid and shows he, and apparently you, don’t know the character. When has he ever declined to investigate someone? Especially a superhero suspected of murder. If he wasn’t going to do it why even put him in the story? It is just more bullshit from a limited writer.

Usually when the backstory of a character is expanded on, it adds to them and showcases more of who they are. All this is issue does is elaborate on the “secret origins” of the 3 so-called “leaders” of the Legion.

Thing is, this simple premise is botched completely. Somehow each of the leaders feel like less of a character and just a pointless addition to the roster than before. more
