The worst issue. For so many reasons. First, why Williamson needs to explain everything to us? The plot treat us like we were dumbs, its frustrating. And yea, is the fifht issue of seven, and there are like 13 pages of nothing and so many script. Also, this is not legacy, the 90% of the characters in the ''Titans'' page doesnt even have any series or comic. Why's blue beetle a legacy character, fo more

Josh Williamson might have just written some of the worst dialogue I have ever read in a cape comic before. Literally nothing has happened throughout all 5 of these issues. What a disappointment.

So far this series felt more like a regular Justice League story, not a Crisis, after the last issue it seemed that this would change. Not the case unfortunately. The scale of the battles feels small and rushed. This is supposed to be about legacy but all we get is some cheap fanservice. It lacks a real argument about legacy heroes, instead it just goes "hey, look, the young heroes look cool". Al more

There are some moments I really liked, and the art is good. However, a lot of the remaining heroes are former Justice League and are adults. The idea that only kids or legacy characters are left behind doesn’t work. Nightwing, while the first sidekick, is one of the most experienced heroes in the DCU, has led multiple teams, and has been an adult solo hero for years/decades. Having multiple char more

Wow, the cover of this is so bad. The faces are almost laughable. I'm so tired of the additional story I don't want. I'm so glad the Warworld story arc is over. Here we a filler issue where Superman brings a couple of the Warworld kids home with him. He reunites with his wife and gives a speech. Meanwhile, we set up Luthor being his notorious self.
