I don’t think this issue is that bad& looking back at the whole story it gave us a realistic take on what happens, when humans are confronted with things, that goes beyond their understanding& capacity.

wally didn't have memories of 2 separate lives! Tom King messes up the idea by throwing in past continuities but that was never ever explained. These characters are all part of the New 52 continuity that carried over to the Rebirth. Don't confuse hack writing for a deeper story

DC Stuff - May 31, 2019

This wally is the new 52 wally - he didn't remember having a family. He saw another version of himself and a family in Flash War hypertime but it was not "his family". I think the story should have been about multiple memories but was that was not brought up at any time in the story. Again, don't use tom king's utter lack of what the continuity is make you think there is a deeper meaning. He never once said in the book or in interviews that they were dealing with multiple memories

While sometimes things are not as satisfying as we'd want, what really hurts is how much this series has missed the point regarding PTSD. The art is phenomenal. Why would Hal Jordan question what will is? I think he knows. The panels running through DCU heroes teases what could have been a better series.

All your complaints were addressed in the previous issue where Bruce explains that the whole case was based on Batman finding the slug off ice in the brains that the police missed and that the police later varified was there after batman found it, but no one considered this slug was added after the first autopsy and is reasonable doubt but only if you believe batman is fallible. So yes you missed something.

The clark/jon part seemed way off to me. Clark is more in tune with jon than this and Jon is way off! Jon has become a kid who is constantly talking back and not listening, which may be normal for a 10 year old, but not yhis 10 year old. If he acted like this before, supes would have forbid him from "playing" with damian.

myconius - Jul 13, 2018

great point DC Stuff! this change in Jon's behavior did not feel at all organic. it was a sharp left turn that sacrificed characterization. i mean even if Jon was just freaking out over his "possible future" we'd still see some glimmer of the how he acted before. people just do NOT completely change into a WHOLE other being. it's just that Bendis didn't bother or care enough about Jon to do his homework on him is all. at least his version of Lois seemed ok.
