    Witness the historic start of the final chapter in the Crisis trilogy that could only spring from the mind of Grant Morrison — Final Crisis, featuring stunning art by J.G. Jones (52 Covers)! Worlds will live and heroes will die in this epic tale spanning the beginning and end of the DC Universe! The entire Multiverse is threatened as the mysterious Libra assembles an army of the DCU's most terrifying super villains. But what is the ultimate plan, and who will live to find out?

    The issue begins in a prehistoric time with Metron showing a teenager of that time fire. The teenager then enters a battle sight then sets the whole place on fire. Back to the present where Inspector Dan Turpin investigates the death of Orion. Fast forwarding to John Stewart's workplace with the weather out of control the issue then goes to Turpin and Renee Montoya conversing about the dark side club. When Hal Jordan arrives and converses with John Stewart about the death of Orion while far in space the Guardians of the Universe dispatch Alpha Lanterns to the scene.

    The issue then goes to a junkyard where doctor light and mirror master subdue Empress, Mas, Menos and Sparx to take a chair to Libra. Fast fowarding to Libras headquarters where he converses with many of the villains then fullfilling his promise to satisfy their hearts desire he kills Martian Manhunter by stabbing him through the chest simply because Human Flame wanted him too. Turpin then goes to interrogate Boss Dark Side about the club but is then brought to his knees. The JLA is then seen conversing in the hall of justice as the Alpha Lanterns secure the crime scene. While the Monitors exile one of their own then goes back to a destroyed world where the teenager is told to use fire against the gods. Where the issue ends.

    How's It Gonna Be? 0

    Death Destruction mayhem and a rebirth in the guise of a 1920's gangster. I love the noir undertones right now. The question is will it hold up? Back alley deals and deicide? Overall it has promising start especially considering last time we saw Orion he was commiting patricide.spoiler The Dark Side club and the crime boss persona is giving a great sinister tone to the introduction. I am not overtly sure about Libra and this giving every villain what they want line and the murder of Martian...
