This arc left a lot to be desired but the heart to heart between Dick and Damion made it all worth it. I really hope to see more of that during the upcoming Lazarus Contract crossover!

Fantastic issue. Spencer showing what life looks like was highlighted by the school children learning the new Hydra approved history. Heroes are separated and desperate, villains are planning power moves, and a death of a character seeped in Marvel history but not so much that he needs to be brought back over fear of rioting on the streets. One of the best #1 issues for an event!

DC's long history is one step closer to being relevant again and that is nothing but good! This issue was low with the action but high with the mystery and intrigue. Johnny Thunder, Cosmic Treadmill, and Flashpoint Batman all make an appearance and this crossover event is turning into a good one! I can't wait for the third chapter to hit stands!

This book had some great moments but I feel like it's a Kitty & Wolverine book with everyone else just filling up space to a degree. I'm really looking forward to seeing some more action by Nightcrawler, storm, Prestige, and the others! The art is fantastic but a bad taste is left in my mouth with all the controversy surrounding it.
