I really loved Forever Evil. The central premise is essentially "what if saving the World was left up to DC's supervillains," but the execution of the story is far more interesting and entertaining than that summary suggests, though also slightly misleading. This is an unusually grey DC story, with the villains shown to range from the irredeemably malicious to people who, in slightly different circumstances, could have been heroes.

The book is basically a celebration of the various villains who have played a pivotal role in DC's popularity over the years (though there are some big names noticeably missing from the cast). There are big action moments and big character moments, though the book is saturated with neither.

As always with crossovers, the biggest weakness of the story is that the ending is, in fact, as much the beginning of another story as it is the end of this one. I also felt some moments were a little too out of character for some of the cast.

It's a thoroughly enjoyable read though, with great artwork. I would happily recommend it to anyone.

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 26 Sept. 2014
Format: Hardcover
The seven-issue `New 52' mini-series "Forever Evil" from DC Comics is collected as Forever Evil HC (The New 52). This is the story of Lex Luthor's progress from being an evil villain to becoming a good guy. Not a hero, for that is just a mater of perception; or a nice guy, for that is not his personality; but to actually doing `good' acts, because he can see that they are somehow better things to do than the opposite. And he did win, after all, so he can even be magnanimous to Superman. Oh, and there is a big struggle to free the Earth from a gang of super-powered criminals from another dimension as well; that takes up most of the book. Batman helps with that.

No, really.

I can waffle on some more if you want, but that is about it. However, all joking aside (and I really wasn't), this is an excellently scripted and illustrated big giant Earth-threatening event, and while there are many big scenes of carnage and fighting, there is a small and tightly focussed storyline running through this series that follows Lex and Batman (and Catwoman)'s struggle to infiltrate the fallen Justice League satellite to overthrow the Crime Syndicate who have taken up residence there. This is a self-contained story, and while the companion Justice League volume - Justice League Volume 5 HC (The New 52) - runs in parallel, you don't have to read anything else to follow and enjoy this. Cyborg appears suddenly towards the end of the story, and the companion volume explains how he got there; and the battle between Ultraman and Black Adam actually starts there as well, but you really don't notice the join.

Why is Forever Evil a joy to read?. The answer is simple because the justice league are trapped inside the firestorm matrix and, it's up to lex luthor to put together a team of villains to rebel against the crime syndicate from earth 3. Team luthor consists of characters captain cold, black manta, sinestro, bizarro, deathstroke and black adam. Batman & catwoman also join in the battle.

The crime syndicate have captured nightwing and, revealed his true identity to the world as Richard Grayson. The world's remaining heroes are no match for the crime syndicate. Cyborg is rebuilt by his father and, prepares for a showdown with grid. Owlman is plotting against ultraman and, superwoman is pregnant but, who's the father?. If you haven't read this book yet then I won't spoil the surprise by telling you. Superwoman has become my favourite CSA character because she the evil version of my favourite dc character wonder woman. I get the impression superwoman is everything that Diana would be if she ever crossed the line and became a villain. The look of disbelief on the faces of deathstorm and, ultraman when superwoman reveals her true intentions.

The writing by Geoff johns yet again is pretty good. In forever evil the artwork is provided by current wonder woman artist David fynch.

I came to this event series well after it's heyday, after the dust had long since settled.
The kindle version was on cheap offer and a mini-series works well on kindle - like a motion picture summer blockbuster.
This is a powerful, game-changing series that engages immediately, looks beautiful and flows well.
There are no real story telling boundaries broken here - some bad-guys rise to the occasion against the ruthless Crime Syndicate in the absence of the Justice League.
Lex Luthor gets the bulk of the spotlight but there are some important character beats for some others - the greatest being Nightwing of course.
Whilst I do not feel this was essential reading it does enhance many DC series and satisfies well enough.

So the premise of this book is that the Justice League are all but defeated, the Crime Syndicate have invaded Earth Prime and every villain in the world is on the loose and trying to carve out a piece of the world for themselves. Of course not everyone is happy with this new arrangement, Lex Luthor being the main one, and he uses his Superman clone B-0 (Bizarro!) to help him deal with them, and along the way he ends up teaming with Captain Cold, Black Adam and Black Manta to get the job done.

Each character has a motivation for wanting to stop the Crime Syndicate, which makes it even more interesting. Black Adam doesn't want them to enslave people, Black Manta wants to kill them because they took away his change at avenging his father's murder at the hands of Aquaman, and Captain Cold wants to stop them because he was told to destroy his city and refused, and wants to stop the Syndicate from enacting the plan.

The best part of this book is surprisingly not seeing these unique characters team up, but their motivations and how they're narrated. We get a look inside Lex's head as he tells a story about his sister and how he does what he does in order to get results, regardless of the cost both monetarily or morally.

Seeing the Crime Syndicate in their full glory is mesmerising, watching total opposites of heroes we know and love is quite surprising and seeing Ultraman needing Kryptonite for fuel, Owlman wanting to reconnect with Dick Grayson and seeing a pregnant Superwoman manipulate the men in the group is truly something special. Each one has a hidden agenda that they keep from the group as a whole and it's ultimately this distrust and failure that leads to the climax of the story.
