    The issue suffers from the massive opener that proceeded it. The length is much shorter, and with the amount of events taking place, it feels truncated. The amount of time and space given each of the dueling narratives, clearly demonstrates where the impetus and focus of the story is, but if that's the case, the story need not be sectioned into thirds to accomplish what could be done in standard plot/sub-plot form. If the idea is to entice the reader, then there's no small amount of success there. However, titillation aside, it's short shrift to be given readers so early in the story... and one that will be expansive. In truth, the supporting one-shots that will accompany Darkseid War are very much needed, as it's obvious from this issue that there is too much story to be told, than can be accomplished with the standard page rate of a monthly comic. Even then, with said support in place, it will interesting to see how the sequencing is affected with those outlets, especially for readers who chose not to pursue that option.

    It's not truly an issue #2, not thematically, not structurally. It is a shame in fact, that if all the waffle from last issue and this were put together, the resulting combination of those would actually have made it a 4 or 5. Something to think about. The seeds are there, Roman and his secrets, Reiser being a loser, Clark Kent as a neighbor, a job at S.T.A.R. The mess results when it's cobbled together, as it has been here, in a poor fashion. It makes reading this book... difficult. The lack of substance story-wise makes reviewing it doubly so. If literally nothing happens, and the most interesting character is a nerd with a ray gun, how do you explain to a new reader that it's a book they should read?

    There was a battle to the death, with the option of surrender, and now the inanity continues with Hermes ordering Regime Superman to leave Earth, with the allowance of "a turn of the Earth" to do so. Is everyone in this story just brainless?! The League is on their heels. The time to crush them is now. What is the logical next step? Give them time to recover. Batman is in your sights. He's the only person in your way. What's the right move? Why, let him go, of course. This isn't even bad fan fiction. It's insulting. If you've enjoyed this series for the length of time that it's been published, this has to be the nadir on the run. The plot has become a glacier, and like a gigantic mound of ice, it's worthless. How can you charge someone honest money for this ever flowing fondue of recycled malarkey? Readers deserve better than to read week in and week out, that you, writer of this series, have no idea how to make this exhausted story entertaining any longer.
