    Art was awesome, but the story was a bit of a muddle, and was poorly written. I thought this was supposed to be one of the best of the best?

    :dunno: It just didn't engage me. I admit I'm speaking from a very limited knowledge of comic books, but the characters seemed pretty flat and one-sided.

    The art was pretty fantastic. So was the story. I think at the time it was written, everyone wanted a different kind of Elseworld story, specially one set in the future.

    It also kinda broke new ground in DC where they really changed their icons and made them slightly darker in a much darker world. Also they furthered that whole side-kick idea, and showed that the future would one day belong to others besides the current generation. After all, that was one of the reasons that the whole Earth-2 was popular back in the days, it was set in a world where a new generation was given control.

    I liked it, but I showed it to my friend whom was getting in to comics and she didn't like the story at all. She also has almost no knowledge of the characters history aside from movies. Maybe it's just something where you need to know the history a bit better?
