The Rundown: President Superman makes a dark discovery and more betrayal awaits the Totality.
With the threats to the multiverse rising, President Superman and Thomas Wayne team up to get answers from the one person Kal believes could have answers, Lex Luthor. After making a dark discovery, the heroes discover Luthor’s connection to the ship Thomas was trapped in. At the same time Cameron questions Bones and what his plans are after escaping from the exploding Captain Atom from another universe. When she discovers what he’s doing with the kidnapped heroes from Earth, she forces his ship to take them all on a journey.
The heroes trapped in the Bleed go after Roy Harper and Jade discovers that he is who he says he is. After agreeing to see where the ship was taking them all, they find themselves on Earth Omega. Back at the House of Heroes, a message from Barry Allen will cause one of their own to betray them for the sake of a new team with their own agenda.
The Story: There is a lot going on in this issue and while the reveals are interesting, the overall story is loaded with so much plot that character development and engagement with the story gets lost. You find yourself just moving from plot point to plot point. There are some great moments in the story and I like the rising tension, but as soon as I got into one part of the plot, it shifts to something else.
The Art: All of the artist do amazing work with the visuals in this issue. There are some great action moments and the Calvin/Thomas moments are some of my favorites visually.
