Book Description

2 Nov 2005 Countdown to Infinite Crisis
Written by Greg Rucka, Geoff Johns and Judd Winick Art by Jesus Saiz, Rags Morales, Ed Benes, Phil Jimenez, Ivan Reis, and various Cover by Ladronn Spinning out of IDENTITY CRISIS, COUNTDOWN TO INFINITE CRISIS was a Special that laid the groundwork for events in the DCU for the year to come. Now COUNTDOWN is collected with the hot miniseries that directly spun out of it: THE OMAC PROJECT! This crackerjack thriller by Greg Rucka (ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, WONDER WOMAN) features the moody, gorgeous art of Jesus Saiz (MANHUNTER). Every hero and villain in the DCU is under the gaze of an unbelievably powerful spy satellite. It's a technological marvel that answers to only one person - and he's got plans for it that are completely unknown to the superspy organization he controls: Checkmate! In a world where men can fly and melt metal with their eyes, there's now an army created specifically as an answer to them: the OMACs Batman and old ally Booster Gold are about to learn the chilling truth behind the OMAC Project - but will they work with or against each other? This volume includes COUNTDOWN TO INFINITE CRISIS, THE OMAC PROJECT #1-6, and WONDER WOMAN #219.

Format:Paperback
This book will be a bit difficult to understand without reading Identity Crisis first. In that storyline, you learn that the Justice League in the past had not only wiped villains' memories, but actually altered their minds to make them less of a threat. When Batman found out they were forced to wipe his memory too. Supposedly the trauma of this betrayal has subconsciously been the reason for him being such a dark and paranoid character. Once Batman figured it out, he realised heroes could not be trusted, and built a sattelite to monitor them, called Brother I , later renamed Brother Eye. Unfortunately, someone has stolen Batman's sattelite, along with the files detailing every super hero's identity, strengths and weaknesses, and used them to create an army of cyborgs who are equipped to wipe out the metahuman threat to humanity.

This is an amazing storyline - well written, loads of action, intrigue and emotion, and some shocking scenes. It really needs to be read alongside Infinite Crisis to understand the full impact, as it was one of the many series which led up to that storyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMAC Cyborgs and Paranoia for the JLA 15 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
During the best-selling event Identity Crisis, the Justice League heard the scary news of Sue Dibny, the wife of long time JLA member the Elongated Man was murdered by a unknown killer. The Justice League and the Elongated Man wanting revenge for the death of his wife were looking for the killer and the Justice League's culprit was one of their most dangerous enemies, Doctor Light and the darkest secret of the Justice League was revealed. A Long time ago, Doctor Light sneaked into the JLA Satellite headquarters and brutally raped Sue Dibny and when the Justice League came back after a mission they discovered Doctor Light raping Sue Dibny. They eventually defeated Doctor Light and Sue Dibny was scared of what just happened to her. After that, the Justice League decided to have Zatanna mindwipe Doctor Light making him less dangerous. Suddenly, Batman arrived and discovered the mindwipe on Doctor Light and tried to stop it. The Justice League also decided to have Zatanna mindwipe Batman removing 10 minutes of the Incident.

After the Identity Crisis, Batman suddenly remembered about what happened to him during that time and realized that he can't trust anybody and he built and powerful satellite called Brother Eye to keep an eye on the Heroes & Villains of the DC Universe. However, Maxwell Lord, a former associate of the JLA and now the Black King of Checkmate has now got control of the Brother Eye Satellite to use it to battle Earth's most powerful superhumans. How will Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Booster Gold, Fire, Green Lanterns Hal Jordan, Guy Gardner & John Stewart and more can stop Maxwell Lord and the Brother Eye Satellite? And what consequences will happen to the Justice League.

I enjoyed this tie-in to the Infinite Crisis.

4.0 out of 5 stars Batmans paranoia comes back to haunt him 6 Feb 2013
By dregj
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a safeguard against meta humans batman has a secret satellite in orbit called brother i ,with a complete database of all earth's supers and there weaknesses it is designed to be fail-safe should they try to move against humanity.Unfortunately Maxwell lord of checkmate now has control of it ,and it has control of 6 million nanite infected humans who when activated will turn into meta hunting robotic killers.Superman goes to confront lord but lord has spent years using his mind control power to whiddle his way into Kal el's mind and he simply tells supes to kill batman (making him imagine hes an enemy).As is the problem with most of these books .Important parts of the story are missed out to save space/money, so we dont get to see the attack for some reason .and the story carries on from there.
I would still recommend the story incomplete as it is

4.0 out of 5 stars The EYE'S on You! 8 Jun 2012
By j.r
Format:Paperback
The Omac Project is one of a set of Prequel books to infinite crisis. It can however be read alone without those although you will want to get the main Infinite Crisis book. You'll also benefit from reading Identity Cris before this book and having a copy of Superman Sacrifice. About three quarters of the way through Omac Project, the Superman Sacrifice takes place and it's frustrating if you you haven't got this story at hand as otherwise the plot jumps.
The Omac Project is a great Comic book that I enjoyed the most out of the prequel Infinite crisis books. It's the most essential of the prequel books.

The story is superb, full of good characterization and thrilling suspense - right until that moment where a chunk of the story is missing - collected in Superman: Sacrifice (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Superman-Sacrifice-DC-Comics/dp/140120919X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1327720323&sr=8-1). If you are a collector, then this might be fine to you - but this really is a big letdown for anyone else. Beware.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but spoiled by interruption. 8 Jan 2011
Format:Paperback
I first read this series in single issue format and the initial part of the story relatng to Blue Beetle (Countdown) was still especially strong on second reading. The rest of the OMAC Project story is also fairly solid. I had no previous experience of checkmate or Max Lord and did not feel like I was missing an awful lot that was not covered within. However, the main flaw stems from the original OMAC project series having an interlude halfway through during which an ESSENTIAL plot element played out in a separate title. In fairness this book does it's best to bridge the gap by including a key issue from the parallel series and a summary of the the rest of the events that are not shown herein. Unfortunately, it doesn't change the fact that the story is derailed right in the middle of the action. If the story was especially good this might be overlooked - but as it is only above average the effect is heightened.
