It should be fucking dark.
But it would actually be impressive if there was much of a contrast between the before and the after. The DCnU was already dark and grim, so this isn't all that much different.
Speaking of revelations, the CSA unmask Nightwing live on TV, so the whole world knows he’s Dick Grayson. I find this an intriguing revelation in a lot of ways
Are you new here??
Let me put it this way: Do the denizens of the Marvel Universe still know who Spider-Man really is?? "No", you say?? HUH.
Given that example, don't expect the dazzling revelation of Nightwing's identity to remain revealed, either.
The issue ends with Ultraman moving the Moon to block out the sun, which is once again, a great demonstration of the size of what our heroes are up against.
Glad you're so easily impressed, Punchy. But I, for one, have a working brain
, and thus, I'm not impressed.
Unless he's going to stay up there and keep the Moon shading the Earth, the planet and the Moon are going to move out of position, and once again Earth will feel the Sun's rays. Everyone -- and by "everyone", I mostly mean Geoff himself -- DOES realize that the Earth revolves around the Sun and the Moon revolves around the Earth instead of remaining in place
But hey, it doesn't matter if something doesn't make "sense" even in a comic-book manner, as long as it "looks kewl!", right?? Just when I thought that Geoff's ideas couldn't get any more inane...
But who are our heroes? It looks like Lex Luthor is going to lead a bunch of villains in rebellion against the CSA until the real good guys come back, which should be interesting. I know Geoff Johns’ villain-boner is a bit ridiculous, but hopefully he’s getting it all out of his system here, and we can all move on.
Riiiiiight. Like he got it out of his system with the Sinestro Corps War??
Or with Black Adam??
Or with Emoboy Prime??
And in the meantime, we can enjoy a big dumb event with lots of crazy shit happening. I’m down for that.
Yes, you seem to be down for many dumb things. Interesting...
Forever Evil has gotten off to a good start, let’s hope Johns can keep it up, and this is more of a Sinestro Corps War than a Blackest Night, he’s got to do a good job, this is as I said, the first big DC event since Flashpoint, they need to make it count.
Yes. If it doesn't "count", then the crossover that this crossover inevitably leads into will REALLY have to "count"...
