Did you read Relic's Villains Month book? It fleshes him out quite a bit. He's nowhere near the complexity of say, Sinestro, but he's at least more interesting, and his motivations far more clear than Volthoom. I really felt Volthoom was a weak-sauce villain for the finale of such an epic run.
I've read some of his origins and I understand his motivations, but he still seems to me like a copy of Invictus in some respects. Volthoom was a more interesting antagonist to me because he has so much power and he's utterly sadistic and twisted with it, and that power makes him a more dire threat because he can harness the energy of the emotional spectrum. That's not to say Volthoom couldn't be integrated better as theenglish suggests. I'd have to read more before I can judge.

Well, I do think Volthoom became far more entertaining when I realized how Q-like he is, and started reading all his dialogue with John De Lancie's voice.

I was extremely disappointed with the First Lantern storyline. Particularly since the majority of the series was waste of time "what if your life went this way" stories.

Aquaman #24

Finally read this and I'm going to miss Johns when he's gone.

I just hope Parker doesn't destroy everything that Johns has set up. He has a nasty habit of that.

Read Aquaman #24 and agreed. The culmination of Johns work with the origin of Atlantis and the "true King" storyline has been awesome. I'm gonna give Parker a chance, but he'll be on a short leash.

Finally read Justice League #24 and absolutely loved Ultraman's New 52 origin. I always thought he should have been from basically a Mirror Universe type Krypton, also loved the Mirror Universe like twist on the conditioning programming from "Superman: The Movie".

Forever Evil #3 was interesting. The heroes got sucked into Firestorm, haha. Interesting that Bats and Cats slipped away in the confusion and were never in the jail. Even with so little time to prepare Finch's art occasionally had some messed up faces in it.

Superman Unchained #4 was solid. Jim Lee's art looked great, maybe because of that extra month to work on it...

So to risk dealing with the horrible mess that is DCU continuity now... I'm thinking at this point that No Man's Land never happened, and Zero Year is replacing that in the history. Because the entire Court of Owls storyline is predicated on all these ancient buildings still being around, and in the Quake only Waynetech buildings were quake-proofed. Thus, Zero Year replaces it as that horrible time in Gotham's past that chaos ruled the streets.

The best way to treat previous continuity is to assume the events DID NOT happen until we are told that they did in the comic book universe. Even then, they did not happen in exactly the way they appeared pre-52.

For me I like to think the nu52 is the alternate reality and we'll find our way back to "reality".
No Man's Land was an awesome story.
