My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Hmm. This is starting to fall into a soap, rinse and repeat pattern. We have this general plotline where one extra hero who knows nothing about the situation gets introduced, one more exasperating villain is added and lots of people die. Lots.

You knew the Game of Thrones comparison was coming.

So the series motto is:

All men must die…and since Superman, contrary to popular belief, is not a man, he continues his increasingly stupid rampage of angst across the globe.

Reading Green Lantern’s actions, I be like:

The dude literally seems to have lost his mind. When you see the Sinestro corps, you don’t think, you just hope a planet falls on them. Or make it happen.

Reading Hal, Dinah and Ollie’s friendship flashback at the start:

That. Was. Amazing.

Looking at Batman’s super painful situation and the equally painful inclusion of the Birds of Prey:

I feel bad for Bats. Dammit, why do you have to be noble till the end? Be careful, Dinah…

Realizing that a potentially great character dies within one page of his introduction:

WHAT JUST HAPPENED?

Sigh. I just want Kal-El to die. Somebody please make it happen.

On the next episode…The Guardians are coming.
