Yes. I really liked seeing his powers and they put into perspective what I had seen of him in the Rebirth story that Steve Orlando wrote. It made more sense seeing all of the different Tezcatlipocas in the Orlando story after reading this.It’s funny how many villains are giant during these issues. It’s a huge criticism the DCEU gets about the villains, but it’s comics accurate
I get what they were going for, but it was tacked on and rushed seeing as the series was ending. I don't know if it was something that had been setup earlier in the series before the issues we've read, but they could have abandoned this story and it would have been fine. In the end, nothing came of it and Antiope's sacrifice is just brushed over anyway. Paula and Sofia don't add much beyond this development. I would have liked this story as a stand alone, it seemed like something I would be interested in had it been more developed. Hippolyta was losing it over what she had done to Diana, she really wasn't being a great leader. I just don't think it was necessary with such a limited time frame.
I actually really enjoyed them. I knew I recognized Haley's name from somewhere and then it hit me that she was in the CW's Supergirl working for the DEO. Her demise was rough. She just went through all of that crud with Tezcatlipoca and then it all ends with her slipping and falling into a fiery pit and then the ground just closes up. Harsh. I liked the reveal that the NatGeo ones weren't actual reporters.
I loved the final battle. It was intense and really felt like a big epic sendoff. Diana doing her trademark crossed arms is always a highlight for me. Often imitated, but never duplicated.
I felt so bad for the Amazons. All of that work rebuilding and it was pointless. They really worked hard after the attack from Eros just to have the Monitor/Hades/Ares come in and mess everything up.
That’s how bad their island was left. I mean it doesn’t matter because Crisis reboots everything, but still…
I loved the art in these issues. I’m a sucker for a good silhouette.
The monochromatic colors were awesome too even if they most likely were done to save time. I really like it. I was a fan of it in the Kevin Keller series, Life With Kevin, and I’m a fan of it here. It also stops the whole problem with colors bleeding from previous issues when it’s all one color!
Did this not remind anyone of Brendan Fraser’s The Mummy?
