Really enjoyed it. I've got to say that anyone who's upset with the current changes in the DCU isn't as big a fan as they claim to be. If you were ever a fan of comics or new diddly-squat about them you'd know everything will go back to normal within a couple years.

Enjoy the ride for what it is, I sure as hell know I am.

This was my initial guess. Still have to say that the book feels like a PR move.

Jason Aaron is a great writer but this isn't one of his better runs imo. In the GoT series he made it a point to show that Thor would die for Midgard, even when its a ball of dirt, yet in the monologue Jane mentions that the world needs a Thor that would die for it...

In All-Star Superman he was at peak human form. He's Lex Luther, he wants to be the best at everything so it makes sense that he be in shape. He used to be fat but lately he's been in good shape as his character evolved.

Loved all three bits and am more excited for the future of the DCU then ever before.

I'm glad it ended with there being room to make future stories. Also was the big bad saying that there are multiple multiverse's?

Blew my mind when I read that!

Think he was referring to the multiverse before the reboot when he said multiverse-2 but that definitely opened up a LOT of possibilities.

This was incredible and a very very grand finale to the epic story. I also noticed that Captain America and other Marvel characters made cameos in some panels!

With the big bad reveal, I wonder if Morrison is going to dip into this sort of event again in the future, because I know I'd like to see the Justice Incarnate in action.

Lots of complainers on here, which is weird since CBR is usually the place for that. Really enjoyed this issue, both Snyder and Capullo were on point with every bit of their work.

Also really looking forward to the new Batman. Like Snyder said in an interview, storylines like that make you appreciate the original person behind the mask.

This is all comics are today: Cheap Deaths and Boring fights?

It wasn't really a cheap fight. It was a testament to the entire relationship between Bruce and the Joker, where Batman won for once. No "hilarious" finish, no last joke for the Joker.

Because in this day and age people like to complain about everything. It only makes sense that this movie has the tone it does based on the events in Man of Steel.

@sprior93 It seems to delve into the mindset of the characters and the exploration of society's behaviour towards a being like Superman, which is more than you'll get out of most other superhero movies, and this is just based off of the trailer.

Hopefully he gets good writers and storylines to work with/on. And please Marvel give artist's more time. If there's anything that's ruined artists work over at Marvel its their shitty deadlines just so extra issues can be pushed out.
