Final Crisis
MOTHERFUCKERS KILLED J'ONN GODDAMNIT AND THEY DID IT SEMI-OFFPANEL SON OF A BITCH FUCK

Green Arrow's reaction was kind of neat though. "FUCK THAT! WHOEVER DID THIS TO J'ONN WILL SUFFER! YOU HEAR ME? SUFFER!"

"Cancer. From smoking." was a neat line. And the bit where Mirror Master and Doctor Light showed up was neat before Light got all rapey. Blindingly obvious indeed.

And the art was great, although a few panels (Dr. Light shielding his eyes because the fire was too bright? What the fuck his power is to shoot light at people he should have adjusted to that by now. And the ultra-sinister look of the rogue Monitor) were kind of wacky.

    I posted a bunch of scans with my review on the blog, but here's some of the better ones for Final Crisis:
    martianmanhunterdeadxx2.jpg

    It's also confirmed at the end of the issue that he's dead by Green Arrow and the JLA during an interview on TV. Ollie is busy cursing them out, for reference.

    warinheavenmn5.jpg

    The children aren't alright. Are these guys like Piper, with aspects of Anti-Life Equation in them or did Dark Side give them the power?

    multiversemachineuz7.jpg

    The Multiverse Machine. Seems Universe-51 was completely wiped from existence and no longer exists. Guess the Great Disaster didn't just turn them into furries.

    It was a great first issue and really sets the table for future issues in a way I found Secret Invasion lacked. Where SI was just a bunch of generic action scenes from every other day in the Marvel Universe, things like the Baxter Building exploding, crashing in the Savage Land, random no name organization getting blown up, SHIELD helicarrier crashing, etc, FC introduced so many unique and interesting ideas and plots, I find myself just dying for the next issue to see how everything fits together and where it's going next.

    Well from what I understand, the difference between SI and FC is what defines them as a 'disaster' for the heroes. SI's ordeal revolves around one major event; the Skrull invasion. FC on the other hand (so far) is all these events happening at roughly the same time, creating an air of general despair and chaos. "Villains were uniting again but Superman couldn't help because the future was falling apart and Batman couldn't help because he went and got himself killed and Wonder Woman couldn't help because these male anti-Amazons attacking her and.."

    I guess what I'm trying to say is more or less SI = man(Skrull)-made catastrophe and FC = natural catastrophe.

    So, regarding the New Gods:
    None of the other superheroes remember them, it seems. Even though Scott Free was on the team for years back in the day, not to mention Orion. Did Countdown cause the memory loss? Or maybe it's some delayed reaction from SBP punching reality? Just spitballin' here.

    That was my major gripe with the issue, too. My guess is that Morrison just said, "Fuck Countdown, that shit sucks, this is my story." and ignored it all. It explains DC scrambling to rewrite Mary's ending to make her evil again at the end to line up with Final Crisis.

    They remember them, but they're sort of... unfamiliar with them. Instead of "Hey, it's our friend Orion who we've helped and fought with many times in the past, who was in that big fight with Darkseid a little while ago" it's "Hey wait, this is that Orion guy, right?"

    A more simple way of explaining it is this:

    Final Crisis is a "Crisis Level Event" which is DC's attempt at reorganizing their entire DCU. This is the 3rd Crisis Level Event. Crisis on Infinite Earths was the first, back in the 80s. Then back in '06 they made another attempt with Infinite Crisis + 52. Infinite Crisis was the event, and 52 was supposed to be the period of putting it all back together again. However, they weren't satisfied with the way in which the DCU was restructured, thus we now have a 3rd Crisis, or Final Crisis as they are calling it.

    Basically, Final Crisis is a DCU encompassing event which will alter the continuity, timeline, and origins of the entire universe.


    Secret Invasion, on the other hand, is just a summer event. Its just a big storyline that will have multiple book crossovers in an attempt to stir up sales during the summer months. Marvel has a summer event pretty much every year. Summer events might have a couple big story arcs or major things happen, but they aren't designed to completely restructure the entire universe.

    Are, too. :P I love them as much as the next person for the Whedon written stuff and Brand is a great "Nick Fury of SWORD", but they've had like one canon appearance outside Astonishing X-Men, which comes out once a year and, even there, they've shown up like 5 times to do nothing but get in the X-Men's way. In short, good in theory, but having their first major alien threat end with them getting their asses handed to them, infiltrated by a Skrull and having their space station blown up makes them no name SHIELD knock offs for my broadsweeping generalization you quoted.

    The neat line, that was used in 52 Are youhinting they're undoing one of the deaths that should have never happened......or are they killing people for the hell of it again and blaming it on smoking once again?

    What sort of baffled me in FC was
    When the GLC find out that Orion died they're basically going FUCK FUCK HOW DID THIS HAPPEN LOCK EARTH DOWN AND FIND OUT WHAT THE SHIT HAPPENED, which is sort of a reasonabe response when someone kills a god, I guess...

    ...but there was none of that when the rest of them were being killed in Countdown and Death of the New Gods, which is a bit weird.

    And uh Seven Soldiers Darksied? What? Where did he come from all of a sudden?
