Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I was pretty damn shocked when the issue ended just when Superman appeared. That was a full issue?!

My one big pleasant surprise was that the bad guy will be Darkseid, though. My fav.

As for Flashpoint #5, wow, that was anticlimactic. They spend like 60 issues of worthless tie-ins building up this huge Aquaman / Wonder Woman confrontation.... and in the final issue it happens off-screen and doesn't even get finished!!! All those characters set up for the final battle... and they just make one panel cameos doing nothing. What was the point of it all? If the story in the end was only about Flash and Reverse-Flash, why did we get 60 issues of tie-ins about everything BUT that?

Like Final Crisis, this feels like something that should only have been a single arc in a single book and not in a million other books. And like Final Crisis, in the end I didn't like it
