My only previous experience with the new version of OMAC is his guest-appearance in Frankenstein, where he landed out of nowhere and fought Frank. He does the same to the JLI in this issue, is that all he does? I suppose I’ll have to learn something about him now since it looks like he’s going to become a member of the team. I found it interesting that Batman seems to have something to do with the creation of OMAC and possibly Brother Eye. I had assumed that dick-move from Bats would have been erased, but obviously not. But still, any OMAC appearance in the JLI has to ring some alarm bells, where the heck is Maxwell Lord? I liked that this issue featured narration from Godiva, it’s cool that the book is finally getting around to focussing on some of the newer characters rather than just being the Booster Gold show (as much as I love Booster). However, the villains in this book continue to be pretty lame, and the last page made me roll my eyes a little, there are 3 Firestorms now? What the hell?

I take it you're not reading Firestorm ? There are numerous Firestorms: one for almost every "major" country with nuclear capability, and several rogue Firestorms (created with stolen Firestorm protocols) that are turning out to be suicide bombers 8)

It sounds depressing. Flame top is supposed to be a fun book. At least in my opinion.

I'm not reading Firestorm no, I don't like Gail Simone (and I know she's not on it now).

I'm sure he'll show up again at some point. He made several appearances in the OMAC series.
