I reread everything Earth 2-- Earth 2, Earth 2: World’s End, and Earth 2: Society. And it was during Earth 2: Society #14 where I stopped being able to proceed. I had waited throughout E2S to see if anything interesting happened, but it never did. I agree with what some others say-- Nicole Scott’s art is beautiful. Tom Taylor had some real fun in his run. But the rest is just uninspiring and dull. Earth 2 itself had the best material. E2WE was so many issues of meh written by an army of people who couldn’t figure out how to raise stakes; they had literally four horsemen of Apocalypse and only faceless masses were lost. I mean-- at least create characters we can care about to kill off! Maybe the worst is the emergence of Rebirth and how even with the days numbered on this low stakes series could not be bothered to rev it up.
The last storyline in E2S I read was about a war between these displaced people. It was mostly inaction and political talk. In fact, the climax, meant to stop a war was kind of a Deux ex machina and we never saw what kind of war would even be taking place on this new planet. I’m going to punish myself by just scanning the pages through 22, but I honestly don’t know why, don’t know how I stuck around as long as I did or how this boring storyline continued to slip under the radar and continue to be published. And ultimately these characters vanished forever with a whimper even after big Convergence possibilities… Yawn.
So my recommendation: Don’t read anything Earth 2. Read Injustice instead for some real stakes and fun.
