Summary: Best-selling writer Grant Morrison (BATMAN, ALL-STAR SUPERMAN, JLA) and critically acclaimed artist J.G. Jones (52, Wanted) redefine what it means to be a modern day Super Hero in this cosmic epic.
What happens when evil wins? That”s the question Superman, Batman, the Justice League and every being in the DCU have to face when Darkseid and his otherworldly legion of narcissistic followers actually win the war between light and dark. Featuring the deaths and resurrections of major DC characters, FINAL CRISIS is more than your average multi-part event – it”s a deconstruction of Super Hero comics and a challenging, thought-provoking take on the modern, four-color icons.
Toon’s Take: Just awful. No semblance of a story, no logic and no cohesion. Grant Morrison has gone off the deep end with this one, his writing is just plain retarded at times. I feel like he just uses big words from the Microsoft Word Thesaurus without know what they actually mean.
Gods? New Gods? Demi Gods? Ultra gods? Lex Luthor? Multiverse? Universe on top of the multiverse? Internet virus? “Uthernet”? Mathmetical formula of death? Cure of which is an electrical circuit representing life? What the f***? There is literally no story here, it has nothing to do with ‘Infinite Crisis’ and ‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’ other than sharing the name ‘Crisis’. At least writer Geoff Johns in the astoundingly excellent second book ‘Infinite Crisis’ carried on the characters from the first Crisis book. This ‘Final Crisis’, the third Crisis book is just a total mess, and just cements what a stupid human being Grant Morrison is. I honestly cant summarize the story for you because I have absolutely no idea what the hell I just read. What a waste of money, I feel like I’ve been taken advantage of, just because I was attracted to that very nice looking cover art.
Oh and if you’re expecting a grand end to Batman from the ‘Batman R.I.P.’ story line, then don’t bother reading this, there is nothing worthy of Bruce Wayne here.
“FINAL CRISIS is more than your average multi-part event – it”s a deconstruction of Super Hero comics and a challenging, thought-provoking take” – Total bulls***.
