Setting aside the continuity mess between DoTNG, Countdown, and Final Crisis, I didn't think it was terrible. It was an entertaining enough story, and aside from the use of the Anti-Life Entity (which is just an awful idea), I didn't think it was bad.

Starlin's one of those guys who isn't a bad writer, but whose glory days seem to be behind him. His most recent stuff has seemed so...dated.

And even if he was 'forced' he still could have told a good story.


How can you write a good story where it's own conclusion is not even in your book or for that matter the outcome was in another book?

DC pre and post Nu52 is bad. Going back to the old universe will still suck as long as Lobdell is writing half the books and Harris plummets the DC value.


Maybe if we're lucky they can retcon DC's decision to bring Lobdell, Harras, Mackie, etc as well if they ever go back to the old continuity.

I doubt that this a wholesale return to the old DCU (or any old DCU, for that matter.). I doubt anything like that's going to happen before the Trinity War stuff.
