Review of the Week: Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion.

So after the big villain meeting hosted by the Crime Syndicate in Forever Evil #1, Captain Cold and the rest of the Rogues decide to split that scene and head back to Central City. Once they get there they find it's in ruins, apparently Grodd has trashed the place. They make their way to the hospital to check on Lisa, Captain Cold's Sister and Mirror Master's girlfriend. Once there the group is attacked by a group of d-list villains I've never heard of who are there to destroy the hospital and the rest of Central City on the Syndicate's orders. After the Rogues spank those losers Deathstorm and Power Ring of the Crime Syndicate show up and say the Rogues have defied the Syndicate and the penalty is death.
This should make for an interesting fight next issue and I'm glad the writer resisted the urge to use Johnny Quick, the evil Flash for this confrontation. I've always liked stories that put the Rogues in the role of unlikely and reluctant anti heroes. They might be criminals, but much like a mafia they will defend their city from outsiders who would destroy it. Especially with the life of a loved one in the balance. I enjoyed this tie in and look forward to the next issue.
