First things first, wasn't Jericho, using Slade's body, the one who shot Impulse? Or am I remembering it wrong? Anyway. This issue was... something.

Today's issue felt more action oriented but the story still progressed nicely. Showing the strengths of placing your story in an alternate universe, characters can and will die. The humor continues to work really well too, one joke in particular took me out of the story for a moment since it was an "ok boomer" joke but that ain't a big issue.

When the 2016 Deathstroke series ended it was said by it's editor that it might have been the last Deathstroke solo series ever. So the announcement of Deathstroke Inc excited me a lot since it was so unexpected to me. The premise, that being Slade and Black Canary hunting super villains for a mysterious organization was nothing short of perfect. I'm still waiting for that comic.

This is not a crisis. Call it literally anything else. Nothing has happened, or at least everything that has happened up until this point should have been dealt with by the halfway point of issue 2.

The healthy approach to a comic book would be to have your expectations for it completely neutral, and your mind open. Obviously we're incapable of that, since we're only humans - driven by our prejudices, preferences and emotions.

In the final couple of issues of Teen Titans Academy, Gar and Victor got merged into one being (sharing their minds in a merged odd-looking body), and Raven created an illusion that they had separate bodies that looked like their regular selves. That should mean if you actually see Gar, you must be seeing an illusion, and therefore the bullet must have missed. At least that's where I think this could be going! Maybe getting to that plot point is the only reason TTA's run was extended a bit.

This crossover was one big letdown, full of inconsistencies, boring and unnecessary long.

First, let's talk about what they did to Brion here and how it makes zero sense. Terra never died in today's continuity, he has no reason to hate Deathstroke, and what Talia did to him is way worst.

Like, I get what this comic is trying to say, about how certain upbringings can make a person violent and even if the person thinks they are in the right, their actions are still way too extreme. this is the type of stuff i like to read so, yeah, enjoying where this series is going.

No way they are really linking this to Mark Waid's World's Finest, but doesn't that book take place in the past? How the fuck does Nehza factor into this bullshit?

Weak dialogue, mundane story beats, and a couple continuity discrepancies (Girder is currently merc'd in the Flash Book).

The twist I saw coming since Batman #122. Motivations make sense for hating Talia and Slade with Judas Contract & Event Leviathan, though I would tell you to only read JC because the other one is indecipherable garbage.

Nobody gives a shit about Angelbreaker, and I'm sure everyone is tired of death-bait when we've already seen him in the Dark Crisis promo material and covers.
