He doesn’t, he did not even get the Kate Kane who runs the organization right. I doubt he cares though, since consistency in continuity/portrayals is not a concern of his.

This issue makes par. Not unreadable, not great, middle-of-the road fare. For what is supposed to be the ending to the set-up of this summer’s “World Changing” event it is supremely underwhelming.

It’s a forgettable issue, as there are no standout moments, but by the same token there are no egregious faults in characterization, logic, or story.

The purpose of a villain in a superhero story is to challenge the hero, make them embrace their best self, grow and learn. None of that can happen when a random sleection of baddies is being taken down one by one by a hero so overpowered he puts Arya Stark to shame.

Haha I would be totally fine with Bane killing Thomas, since I hate that guy. I rather hope we don’t get some dramatic reunion between son& father. Overall it makes no sense to me, that Thomas is even there. There is zero explanation.

myconius - May 14, 2019

exactly! we've been wondering how Thomas is there or why he'd be helping Bane against his own son. King probably just threw that in there as a mystery box, and now has no idea what to do with it. the whole scenario is just dumb beyond dumb.

Except if this was expressly a place where HEROES could recover and face their issues. Putting villains there would be counterproductive to the very purpose this place was built to fulfill. I understand they would want to help these people rehabilitate, but this is not the way to do this because rather than assist their rehabilitation they can hinder others. The whole angle of confidentiality might make it the least bit viable but not enough to have it make sense or warrant it.

I'm going to play the devil's advocate and quote Jor-El "the black hole - that grabbed US". He clearly states that both of them got caught. It's never stated that they ended up in the same place and time. It's clear to me that Jon had the misfortune of ending up on Earth 3 before Anti-monitor had his way with it and Jor-El ended up somewhere and somewhen else. It took time before he fixed his ship and figured out where his grandson is.

RBL - Apr 14, 2019

His assertion that his grandson ran away remains completely unfounded. Stating the black hole grabbed them also does not explicitly mean that both were taken into it, just by the fact that the ship they were was caught in its pull it’s already valid.
