I just read this series/event. I had to buy it on eBay since it wasn’t available on here. I have to say I was very disappointed. I felt like it was a choir to read and very boring. I do think it had some good concepts. The Manhunters wanting revenge against the GL corps and the guardians could be a great story. The guardians also had a plan to help evolve humans into their next stage. The problem with this is the characters created by this evolution and we are told are so important end up being pointless. 30 years later and I don’t recall any of these Special characters ever Even being mentioned in any comics. So basically it was a 8 issue miniseries that was about introducing some minor characters that may have played a minor role in a few issues within the next year and be totally forgotten. I felt they also ruined a lot of characters for this story. Lana Lang and the entire town of superman turned out to be manhunters or spy’s for them. Why would you destroy all of that history for a story that wouldn’t have any major impact? Also wally west father, Ronald Reagan’s mother and a lot of minor characters ended up being manhunters.
In the end I feel like this may be the worst DC event I ever read. Hopefully a lot of it was retconned. I don’t think they kept the idea that Superman’s home town were all manhunters.
What do you think about this story? Did you like it or did you feel the way I did about it?
