There is a lot of action in issue 21. In fact, it’s basically one really long fight scene, split between a mind controlled Green Lantern fighting against most of the remaining heroes, while the Ultra-Humanite gets confronted by Huntress, Steel, Firepattern, and Batman. They need to break the Ultra-Humanite’s concentration, so that Alan Scott can regain his mind and stop fighting his friends. Do you think they manage to do this? Well, yes, you’re right. They do.
So while there is a big sacrificial death in this story, it is almost meaningless, as the direction of the story is just so obvious by this point.
I loved this book when it started, don’t get me wrong. But by this point, I am feeling like I am watching Batman vs Superman – Dawn of Justice, or X-Men: Apocalypse. Something that could have been extremely good, but goes on far too long, and gets dragged down by its own weight.
Again, I don’t really blame the creative team on the book for this. I have the feeling that they were working to the demands of the higher editorial staff, who wanted this book to last until the new Justice Society get introduced. And maybe that got stretched out a little longer than original expected.
