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.
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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.Read more ›
