Simply hilarious: Brother Eye absorbs Apokolips
So this is the "Fifth World" that DiDio was talking about? I'm sorry, but this is more of an insult to everything Jack Kirby went to such pains to create in the early 1970s. It's also little more than a boomeranging back on the elements seen in Infinite Crisis, such as the Omac Project (which was basically a ripoff of another of Kirby's creations, first written in 1974, and here turned into a robot concoction). This is what the New Gods have to perish for?
And while we're on the subject of elements seen in the past few years that the editors are not letting go away, we could even add the following problems to the list that are seen in Teen Titans, such as:
Robin/Tim Drake missing his best pal, Superboy, who's not even referred to by that name anymore, but not missing his father, if at all.
Wonder Girl/Cassie Sandsmark being only defined by her own affair with Superboy, and little else.
How exactly can any serious character study or stability be maintained if they're either going to let an error remain unfixed, or refuse to move past another detail and let it hang?
