Man-ifest your future! Thanks to Cizko's new catchphrase, he's gained fans, and more importantly, soldiers in his war against Wonder Woman.

Plus, a growing dan...

Wow, Rosenberg doesn't get Damian's, Dick's or Bruce's character at all. It's a shame this is so generic, I was looking forward to an in-depth exploration of what Dick's betrayal would cause. What a way to squander their dynamic. Makes me miss the Reborn era even more.

The resolution of the Altuum plot spilling over from TotA pulls down an otherwise enjoyable issue.

Steve and Siegfried are an absolute delight, Dr. Psycho is creepy af, and Diana has her hands full of problems already.

Thanks to Antiope the Young Diana backup feels more relevant to the present-day story than its past iterations.

Remember Greta Van Fleet? Talented kids, for sure, but it's not the band itself I'd like to compare this comic to, but rather remind us all of one quote regarding their debut album, which was labeled "boomer fetishism". Whether it was an accurate criticism, or just a journalist hackery, I'll leave for personal interpretation, but either way it got stuck in my mind, and came back when I was reading more

It does what it promises - taking the JL off the table - and that's it. There's no emotional impact so far.

Also, as a Wonder Woman here is my obligatory "Why the heck didn't Diana use the lasso?" comment. Srsly, dear creative team, don't just make her pose with a sword when the situation clearly requires the Leaguers to convince the villain and make the villain see the truth.

Marcio Takara has really gotten a feel for Wonder Woman. The fights are fantastically illustrated and the quiet moments work well. Especially with the featured villains, Takara's drawings shine and he really puts a lot of work into the mirrors.

I'm really getting tired of Taylor's "style" of introducing characters only for them to be killed several panels later, it got boring a long time ago. Also notice how almost always those characters are men. If they were women, we'd talk about "fridging" but since they're men, who cares, right? Only in this book he did it 4 times already, he did it with Jor-el, he did with the Metal Men, he did it more
