It wasn't a terrible comic or anything. But I only bought this to follow the x of swords storyline. It was completely unnecessary for me to buy this. It could be summer up in ine sentence: Storm, against the wishes of Wakanda takes an ancient sword for the battle close at hand.

I thought it was an ok story. The issue didn't seem to build toward a bigger plot other than a random fight with hulk next issue. I also thought the story spent too much time focusing on the back and forth with d-cel.

Dick is back. Hooray, I guess? This issue was all over the place, the "reveals" felt like covering up for mistakes in previous issues, the threat gets almost forgotten about, Joker's diabolical evil plan is to... wander off? And Bea grabs the idiot ball with both hands and ditches Dick because her boyfriend recovered from brain damage? Yup, that's quality Jurgens writing for you.

Bea grabs the idiot ball with both hands hahahah was good

Beyond_Batman - Sep 18, 2020

What did you want Jurgens to do with Bea? Stop the whole joker war storyline so he could dedicate an issue to their relationship? Go watch a soap opera. In my opinion it was a perfect way to put it on the back burner until the joker war is over in only one page like it did. A relationahip issue doesnt do much to add to that storyline. This book is not perfect, but that is not one of the issues unless you want a soap opera.

I liked the story. I like how it gave a quick rundown of what happened. I hate that dc doesn't have a couple "previously in" paragraphs like marvel does. I'm a big Nightwing fan. And I'm not trying to race bait or anything lol but wasnt hawkgirl as white as nightwing throughout this whole justice league run? She looks like she turned into a black woman with no explanation.

This only gets a 9 because Nightwing is finally back!!! The actual issue was hust ok overall. It was very rushed and I don't like how Dick was whooping Red Hood like he was a novice. But I get this issue is about Nightwing and his return so I wont judge too harshly. But I am just so glad this whole ric grayson saga is over.
But I do think he should go by Rick from now on. That is a name no o more
