That's not how you make events, DC. That's how you make gimmicks. Metal succeeded, because it had proper story outside the Dark Multiverse thing that alone wouldn't survive a month. No Justice failed, because it was the exact opposite. And everything indicates the entirety of Year of the Villain will be forgotten by the comic hitory, buried in between Metal and Death Metal, being merely a marketin more

This issue should have been "Giant-Size X-Men: Cypher" considering Cypher did a bulk of the work for the mission.

Gotta say we may have another classic on our hands.

King is giving us a story about fact vs fiction that wouldn't be where it is without Shaner and Gerads art elevating his material. From the panel layout to switching between art styles are done masterfully.
