Review of the Week: Forever Evil #3

If you haven't already check out my reviews of issues one and two. So this is a bit of a misleading cover. I mean all these guys are featured in this comic but they aren't fighting each other. Anyways our issue starts with Batman and Catwoman at S.T.A.R. Labs with what's left of Cyborg. Then we get flashbacks to when the Syndicate showed up and took out the Justice League. Apparently Grid's body is the robotic parts of Cyborg that split off once Grid took them over and the rest of the heroes were trapped in Firestorm's matrix by Deathstorm. Then we cut to the Rogues being confronted by Deathstorm and Power Ring as we saw in the end of Forever Evil: Rogues Rebellion #1. Deathstorm manages to remove Captain Colds powers by using his molecular control to remove it from his DNA and the Rogues escape to the mirror dimension, but the portal is disrupted by Power Ring leaving all of them trapped in there except Cold who ends up near Luthor. Meanwhile Ultraman and Black Adam are fighting and Ultraman beats him and leaves him for dead in the ocean. Black Manta finds him, wounded but alive and catches up with Luthor. By the end we have Luthor, Bizarror, a beaten down Black Adam, Black Manta and a depowered Captain Cold as apparently man kinds best hope.

This was a pretty good issue to a damn good series, and it pains me to admit that about a New 52 book. The part with the Rogues seemed a little inconsistent with the tie in mini, at the end of that Deathstorm is announcing out loud that the Rogues have been sentenced to death by the Syndicate for their defiance, where as here Deathstorm is questioning them as to why they haven't destroyed Central City yet. Those little inconsistencies in big event always bug me a little and makes me wish editors would do their jobs better. But then this is DC under Didio, I guess I should be thankful it's just a little error. All and all though a solid event and a solid book.
