While villain month sounds cool in theory, we've seen it done a hundred times over before. Villains usurping the heroes, yada yada. It's the same thing every time with the Crime Syndicate. They come to the DC Earth, they wanna take over, they get stopped. Every......... Single........... Time. The difference this time? It's VILLAINS fighting them Freddy VS Jason style. You know the whole "Evil will fight Evil" thing?
You see? They aren't doing anything DIFFERENT with the Crime Syndicate, they're just changing dance partners for them. Now call me crazy, but I thought the New 52 was meant to allow creators to do stories they couldn't previously do. Yeah Forever Evil confirms otherwise. They haven't done anything that couldn't be done without the reboot, in some cases you can't even tell there WAS a reboot, and somethings that HAVE been done shouldn't have been done at all(I'm looking at you The Culling).
In short I'll let a certified expert tell you my thoughts on Forever Evil. Take it away Mermaid Man
