Man, this issue kind of pissed me off. I don’t even really want to write about it.

Basically, Stargirl fights Despero, gets a glimpse at his origins, and basically works out that the events of the last 5 or whatever issues haven’t really happened. She and Martian Manhunter never actually left their mental prison, and it was all in their heads as Despero attempts to manipulate them, and to have Star-Girl give into her weaknesses and fears like all of the other Justice Leaguers have. This brings J’Onn back, as he was never actually dead, and he tells Stargirl that her fighting back, even though she’s back where she started, wasn’t meaningless, as he was able to get back in touch with Steve Trevor, who’s going to come rescue them, but they need to get Wonder Woman first. This might all be another manipulation by Despero though, who knows, and frankly, who cares?

I know no superhero story actually matters in the grand cosmic scheme of things, but the fact that the last few issues have all only been in service of giving us some Stargirl origin flashbacks just makes them a waste of money. I wanted to read ‘Forever Evil’ tie-ins with substance, like the Justice League ones have been, not stuff that was ‘all a dream’. Now, as Manhunter says, some of this stuff did happen in a way that will stick, but at this point… whatever.

I did like the appearance of Ronnie Raymond and Jason Rusch fighting each other, and the explanation of how the detonation of the prison is actually tied to their argument, and the art from Barrows was once again solid, but yeesh, this story has been, unless you’re a massive Stargirl fan, a waste of time.

I was getting confused as things progress elsewhere in this event; namely, Stargirl and J'Onn were searching for Firestorm and they had to cross the country to the west coast to do so, yet he's actually been in the basement on the east coast.

So, congrats to Kindt for having this make sense.

Other than that, I too feel this was a bit of a waste. And I don't get Despero's end game. If Firestorm blows up (which seems to be the plan) J'Onn would be dead and whatever Despero is seeding into J'Onnz mind is meaningless (unless Despero was seeding a way for them to get out, which doesn't make sense why he would want to save them).
