An enraged Black Adam attacks the mad scientists of Oolong island. But the scientists aren't giving up without a fight. We have a a straightforward issue this time with only a few minor sidetrips to follow up the other subplots. This central focus helps build up the suspense for the eventual clash of genocidal, supernatural brawn versus evil, psychotic brains. With supervillains on both sides, the reader actually doesn't know who will come out on top and may have a problem deciding which side to root for. Black Adam may have become DC's biggest badazz, thanks to the recent issues of this title. But it is actually inspiring to see these mad scientists-- Sivana, T.O. Morrow, I. Quimby and company, actually rouse themselves to take a stand against the big bully. The art clearly strains to make sense of a story with such a huge cast and wide scope. But it manages to pull off the job credibly. Despite its flaws, this book gets five out of five stars from me.
