I willnsay this is a great storyline but it's still over rated im ny opinion. It's slightly confusing the way they jump from the past to the present to the future. The alternate timelines made some of the impactful things a little less interesting knowing that they will simply get as many do overs as they need. That is lame. I also don't like these backup bodies they have stored for every mutant. more

I think you didn't understand that there is no time travel because each timeline is from an Alternate reality and the one on our time is supposed to be the last one so they will not simply get as many over as they need

Good story. Stupid ending that doesn't make sense if you think about it.

2) its an arrow. And he heals. And is the world's most deadly assasin. And she is a teenage green arrow!!

I must say I am not a huge fan of the direction Marvel seems to be going with Deadpool. Thebfirst Deadpool I ever read was the first issue of the Joe Kelly run. I have his whole run and when I think what deadpool should be as a character is how he wrote him. Liefeld's Deadpool was actually pretty borung and cliche until joe and his crew made him into an actual character.
But back to my point more

This book feels like it's been treading water ever since 'Ric's' injury but I liked this issue well enough. I'm much happier to read Jurgens than Lobdell and I liked the art too.

There was one major no-no, though... I think superhero comics (the ones involving secret ID's at least) should *really* avoid acknowledging facial recognition software and to the degree they just pretend it doe more

Batman Jones - Jul 18, 2019

Agreed. I guess I'm just used to indulging in a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief with comics and somehow this particular thing of facial recognition software just took me out of that. Really hard to suspend disbelief about that.

Batman Jones - Jul 18, 2019

Even Green Arrow's beard, which is ridiculous when keeping up a secret ID, I was willing to overlook (for 50 years now) up until this one issue.

It was a decent issue. I thought the artwork was really good. I dont mind the whole ric grayson thing but he seems exactly like Dick Grayson but with no memory. They need to stop focusing on " the nightwings". They individually all suck as characters so none of them will be getting an expanded role when this storyline is over. And how has not one of these detectives not thought he is Nightwing alr more

Is there a point to this series?! Every issue is completely random and pointless. I have no idea where or if there is even a direction to this plot. 8 issues in and there is absolutely no point to the story. They are mildly entertaining.
