And Then I Read: JUSTICE LEAGUE 45

Darkseid is dead. This issue is about what happens next. One thing is, apparently members of the Justice League are becoming gods themselves, Newer Gods, perhaps, taking on aspects of the fallen or disappeared. The Flash, for instance, is the God of Death. Superman is the God of Strength. Batman is the God of Knowledge. Some of these make sense, not sure about Flash. I enjoyed the ideas being flung about this time, and the art by Francis Manapul is always a delight. My real problem with the story is that I don’t believe Darkseid is really dead. Or, not for long. That takes me out of the drama, and turns this into an academic “what if” rather than a tale I can get absorbed in. Your reactions may differ, of course.

Mildly recommended.
