    Soooo.....

    It was good, but not as great as i had hoped it would become. It seemed very disjointed at times, moving between plots that i'm sure will become connected more and more as the story unfolds, but the pacing of it still seemed a bit too rushed.

    So we get some reveals at least...
    The New Gods have died and been reborn (when the hell did this happen? I read the Death of The New Gods, but they never showed them reborn :dunno:), possibly with the exception of Orion who still fell on Earth after his defeat by his father... Or did he? His scene doesn't make very much sense. Anyone up to explaining?

    Martian Manhuter is dead... That got a big :ugh:. I can see that they needed a hero to get killed to show off the power and resources that the Dark Side has, but come on... J'onzz? Fucking DC, i began to like the guy.

    Darkside is working on Earth, using the anti-life equation on children, or atleast some form of anti-life equaton.

    Red skies :noes:

    And where's Barry? :hs:

    Still gotta wait until tomorrow. Not too surprised it was Martian Manhunter, although I was really thinking it was going to be John Stewart or Kyle Rayner getting the axe early on...until the last issue of JLA, then you knew he was in deep shit.

    no fucking idea here. :dunno:

    they haven't used him since that miniseries that was pretty :bowdown:
    :hsd:
    I just hated how they didn't explain catching him at all. but I guess they'll get to that.

    :noes:

    Same here, but i'm curious and i hope they better answer stuff about the New New Gods or i'm dropping this piece of turd.

    Also, i thought they'd use him more since they managed to get him in on both the Salvation mini series and the Outsiders, but apparently not :hsugh:
    But i guess we'll get much more out of it soon.

    What i also just saw is how many bloody tie-ins and extra books i have to read JUST to understand shit. I realise this is a big event, but all these Final Crisis: "Enter silly verb here" stuff is a bit too stuffy, even for me, and i don't even buy my comics! :eek3:

    Here's for hoping the coming months can fix this, otherwise my intended migration to all things DC can shove themselves where the sun don't shine.

    Not really, the last panel was of him exiting some planet through a boom tube. But that was it =/

    It was a cage that sucked him away in to Libra's grasp. Anyway, I thought the first issue was pretty awesome and off to a good start. Darksied's "devil-children" were pretty fuggin' creepy. I can't wait for the next issue.

    SPOILERS FOLLOW





























    backwards time bullets? :bowdown:
    black racer chasing the flashes? :noes: :run:
    Batman captured? :eek4:

    plus it looks like there's no way the heroes are going to be able to fight Libra AND darkside. especially when it's pointed out that with martian manhunter, they don't have the telepathic link (i.e. why bats was captured more easily, etc)

    the japan stuff and mohawk burger dude were :greddy: though:

    Number 2 was a lot better. Reading 1 and 2 together you get a sense of the grand scheme of things, and the dark times for the heroes ahead. I loved how Batman saw the ring imprint on the Alpha Lanterns hand and made that comment about John's punch....but then Batman got owned. So Turpin got possessed when he went to the Darkside Club in issue 1? All in all I can see this shaping up into a pretty good story, but for some reason, I'm not too crazy about the art.

    and Batman is going to be turned so evil that he lets the world get taken over by Darkseid and then deposes him and rules himself. :bowdown:

    :rofl: Yeah seriously. The only people who are going to be safe are the ones with spam filters. Maybe something decent will happen in issue 4, but the verdict is still out on this miniseries imo.

    Sounds like the rest of their "events". Major reason why I quite with most of their stuff after 52. Here's a big ol' middle finger for DiDio. Quesada may be a faggot, but at least he doesn't approve shit like that.

    Wow, i'm so fucking stunned by this idiotic event. TA whole lot of shit is going on with this supposedly world-redefining event, yet it's practically not felt outside of it's own titles and tie-ins, and even the tie-ins are absoloute shit. What the fuck is going on is beyond me. Anyone mind filling me in? Jesus...
