The only good thing I can say about this comic is, it ended. 3 issues of plot gibberish, jumping from one thing to another, from one character to the next. There's no depth to be found here, just things that Superman must see before he becomes Superman, all condensed o much, you can't possibly think they'd be relevant to Clark. These are one offs, as important to one's life as meeting a random per more

Awesome reveals, great art, great story, great dialogue. Hickman really gets these characters and what their motivations really are especially with how he writes apocalypse, Xavier, and magneto. Hickman tweeted last night about how hes gonna be on X-Men for a couple years, and if that doesn't make you excited, I don't know what will.

@Toonstrack Ultimate Spider-Man had more build-up... instead, it feels like a slightly less gross version of Spider-Man: Reign, and I think I'm older and more worn-out (ie: cynical) to deal with such a storyline

People seem to be spewing nepotism which I mean is a valid complaint but if anything the response indicates why this kinda stuff happens. Henry Abrams is being criticized quite intensely for his first outing, no doubt because of his lineage. I mean who wouldnt help their kid out though, its not like we know his writing sucks but he keeps getting books.

What a perfect issue. The research that Kickman did for this issue is insame. How he took the time to explain everything is just a pleasure to read. The art is beautiful, the writting is top. How perfect and eerie this issue was. It made me happy reading this, full of hope, but it also gave the feeling that something very rotten is happening. Loved it.

This time around, we get an issue that gives us a lot of needed information. The whole resurrection process was so carefully detailed and interesting. Pretty much the highlight of the issue for me. After that, we get some more information about mutant diplomacy, and by the end, it looks like all mutants are finally united. All of it connects so nicely to what we' more

^^This! And even though it's an interlude, it's still crucial to the overall story. It answers the thesis to King's entire run: can Bruce be happy and still be Batman?

Talon1load - Sep 13, 2019

Bruce HAS been happy before. And this idiotic interlude is only important because King is forcing it to be. It still makes zero sense. Why did those guys even know what could beat Bane? Nothing makes sense.
