A strong start, this series has started on the right foot, and what I like is how far it is from stupid, poorly made inclusive ideas and politics, it is only darkness and action. The art is good enough and the covers are beautiful.

How can anyone genuinely like this horror show where a hero is turned straight into a villain? Brainwashing is the only possible answer, I posit that if this was written by Bendis, the rating would be under 5. But since it's King, let's all throw 10s and 9s because he'll get an Eisner for this lol. If I could rate this under 1, I definitely would.

There's "liberties" and there's butchering of a character. This is the latter.

mynameisraj - Jul 28, 2021

I’d disagree. Having been through the horrors of war, tortured by the enemy, having them capture his daughter and being given the choice “Give us Earth or your daughter is dead” it doesn’t seem like a butchering. But agree to disagree here I guess.

Cantwell is Tom King-lite over at Marvel where he uses the concept of inner demons, personal discovery, and the man behind the mask, but never makes it work more than on the surface and often uses Deus Machina to make it work, if we are luck!

I may have read too much into that but it's not the first time I've read a race-baiting comic from Easton, he did it in Superman Red and Blue too. Thing is, I actually think he's not a bad writer so when he doesn't use his talent and does this sort of thing it's even more annoying. I'm just disappointed because I was hoping this comic wouldn't take this easy route.

Mr. White - May 26, 2021

Ok, fair enough. And I DO see your point because the "You're Normal" comment initially did have me thinking "huh?" and truth be told I DID read it in the context of his race before brushing it aside and thinking otherwise. Perhaps that may be considered "race-baiting" but I'm no expert on the subject. On Eaton's other writing that has same tropes, I can't comment on. But yeah, just seems like the issue wasn't your cuppa tea for the reasons you gave. Which is fine.
