Review of the Week: Forever Evil #2

If you haven't already check out my review of issue one. This issue is a bit slower in pace from the last one. The Syndicate spends a lot of time talking over what their next moves are. This bores Johnny Quick and him and his girlfriend Atomica go out looking for trouble and they proceed to spank the Teen Titans. Meanwhile we see that Superwoman is pregnant with Owlman's child and Ultraman may or may not know. Also we see Lex Luthor wakes up his unfinished Superman clone Bizarro to help fight the Syndicate. At the end we cut to S.T.A.R. Labs where a beaten up Batman and Catwoman bring in a badly damaged Cyborg and Batman says the rest of the League "didn't make it".

This was a pretty good follow up to issue one. It slowed down the pace a little but in doing so allowed us to learn a lot more about the Syndicate and their inner dynamic, as well as what has happened to their homeworld. I especially like that they kept the weird cuckold-y love triangle between Superwoman, Owlman, and Ultraman. The only real downside to this issue is it reminded me what an absolute mess the New 52 has made of the Teen Titans. All and all though this is definitely worth checking out.
