Let me know if you know any other storylines explained that you found helpful for Infinite Crisis or DC understanding in general. Spies with powerful toys and their agenda, a secret supervillain society forming, magic being under attack, a space war, and superheroes not getting along and breaking up the justice league. These all get answers, but not before a myriad of events lead up to it, only adding even more mystery and suspense to the overall most important question: What the Hell is wrong with the Justice League?

I have a few other gripes about the story as well but apart from my next one, I'll keep it in the vein of the main Infinite Crisis story.

This book was such an awful contrivance, neither placing this stories with the mini-series that they completed, nor with the Infinite Crisis that they interweaved with. And in the middle of it all, a critical moment has divided Earth's three greatest heroes: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman. The intro of countdown to Infinite Crisis is edge of your seat storytelling starring Blue Beetle with a shocking conclusion that sets the tone for the entire year before Infinite Crisis begins. I can imagine some of the more hardcore DC fans might have a problem with how some characters are handled here, mostly regarding the deaths of certain characters during it. Maxwell had complete control of Superman; a control so deep, so absolute, that Martian Manhunter himself said he was unsure whether he could undo the damage and was scared to try, possibly destroying Superman's mind altogether.

This book is also another one that's a very clear prequel to Infinite Crisis as it ends on a cliffhanger (which unfortunately undercuts this story's independence a bit, but so it goes) [3+/5]. and ultimately, that makes Infinite Crisis feel a lot less impactful now, and more of a curious example of DC trying to recapture the lightning in a bottle that was Crisis on Infinite Earths. This was the first of many event books that have pushed me away from event books entirely (Blackest Night and Final Crisis) being the other. Being old and experienced with the level of wisdom he should have, should have brought him to that conclusion without E1 Superman having to say it. The villains were darker and as a result so were the heroes, but they were not far off from each other.It feels like this finale gives us the full scope of Day of Vengeance, as the end of the Ninth Age of Magic and the beginning of the Tenth comes across as truly epic, full of sacrifices (though the Shadowpact are certainly reduced to supporting roles in this finale) [4+/5].

Some suggestions that I already have on my list is the Loeb run of Batman/Superman and the Day of Judgement mini-series. Part of that is Johns' usage of the survivors of the multiverse (which is rather brilliant) and his careful repetition of elements like the Anti-Monitor and the multiple worlds. The way in which DC incorporates editorial change and commentary into the narrative of their universe may seem convoluted and annoying to many, but I think it really works in this case. He appears in so many stories as the ultimate savior or threat (there was a similar plot in JSA) but I still do not really get the character. Overall, as with any comic event "Infinite Crisis" is a mess, but it's a mess that comes together and stays true to some very important and very real themes.All told, there's about an issue of plotline here, and it can mostly be found in Greg Rucka's Wonder Woman. Geoff recently became a New York Times Bestselling author with the graphic novel Superman: Brainiac with art by Gary Frank.

One thing that struck me as I was reading this in 2021: There are all these unrelated threads to start us off. The world building is there, but there is a sure hand in letting the readers know enough about the world so that anyone can enjoy. Rann-Thanagar War was a trudge, and almost had me drop it to a 4, but since the vast majority was great, I’m letting it slide. And in the middle of it all, a critical moment has divided Earth’s three greatest heroes: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.This always rides the line of not showing enough, but Johns lands just right and tells a meaningful and memorable story. The main series awesome—some really impressive crowd scenes, a powerful way to make a sequel on a classic, and some genuine emotion. Story: While a wonderful stand-alone tale that harkens back to Crisis on Infinite Earths and the stories between it, it does not treat it's readers with contempt and snobbery like Grant Morrison books. Still, the stories tend to be overbloated sideshows in the Infinite Crisis story whose best feature is highlighting the miniseries that flowed into the Crisis.
