Do not miss this disturbing look into the future of super powers in the DC Universe!

I’m going to be straight with my opinion. No pussy-footing around. I didn’t like this. I thought it was angst driven and boring. I didn’t like either of the main characters because they were both asses in their own way. Jason was a smart ass. He could have been likable except that he thought he was better than everyone else. Ronnie was just a boring jock. They tried to make him a little more likeable when they pointed out that he didn’t bully the geeky kids because he knew that they would someday be running the world.

I did, however, like the art. I thought it all looked great and I really liked their character designs. But the pretty pictures couldn’t make up for the struggling story.

I will not be continuing this one.
