I appreciate Tom just lazily saying outright Harley is as good as Batman in only 2 issues of this, rather than limply trying to convince us as he did with Catwoman over 50 monotonous issues of Batman.

Sook's art is breathtaking, but even that can't save this dumpster fire. There are far too many plot holes. Lois' written completely out of character and her reasons for not telling Clark she's back are flimsy at best and ignores two years of continuity. Clark goes along with this barely questions anything. He doesn't really seem to care that his son is with a genocidal maniac. Neither of them co more

Yeah, being suspicious doesn’t really have anything to do with being fearful. Hadn’t really paid much attention to that but you’re right. Should definitely have been superstitious.

You do realize that most people who suffer from depression have a hormonal issue right? So yes if a mans estrogen is way to high he will definitely act more feminine and be prone to feeling emotional and depressed because his hormones are all out of balance. I’m genuinely concerned for Tom King. Why is he always writing about depression and PTSD? I understand he probably saw some terrible things while serving in the CIA but does that mean you’re whole writing career has to be based off that?

Talon1load - Sep 29, 2018

Yeah, hormones can cause depression. That’s not an indictment of every guy with depression but who knows, it could be why King is such a bad writer. Stop trying to be offended about what people say on the internet. Just take it all with a grain of salt.
