The Rundown: As Deathstroke continues to attack heroes, Black Adam becomes disillusioned with the new generation of the League.

Deathstroke continues to attack anyone who decides to become a hero. At the same time, heroes continue to go missing and the Titans lick their wounds and watch over their injured as Donna tells the group that something is wrong with Gar and its deeper than just his injury. Deathstroke gets a visit from one of his kids who has a message for him and witnesses first hand what is happening to Deathstroke under the influence of Pariah.

Black Adam attempts to train the new Justice League, but quickly becomes annoyed with how they will not take things to the same dark level Deathstroke is playing on. Yara decides to join the team just as Adam decides to leave and Jon gets some seasoned volunteers who want to help. Hal and the Green Lanterns find a way to Pariah and Hal learns quickly what he plans to do with the Justice League. At the same time, Adam turns to some old allies who are ready to turn to the darkness.

The Story: As unimpressed as I am with another Crisis story, this issue impressed me with its tension and plot. Williamson does a great job of balancing all of the story elements into something that feels engaging and compelling. I like that there are things in the story that both surprised me and made me intrigued with the direction Williamson is taking this story.

The Art: Sampere delivers some great art throughout the issue. Sampere is given the opportunity to play with a lot of the toys in the toy box visually and I love the way the characters look.
