Final Crisis #4 Review

fc4

Its been awhile but this issue picks up one month in the future from the events in issue #3. The Earth has been enslaved by the Anti-Life Equation and Darkseid’s forces are attempting to bring him back via a human incarnation. The heroes are scattered at 6 Watchtowers across the world and are are cut off due to the Anti-Life Equation being broadcast on all forms of media and communication. We see a screen showing that some heroes have been catpured, some are offworld, and some such as Batman and Superman are MIA. The Flashes (Barry and Wally) escape from a band of Justifiers seemingly led by Wonder Woman. Black Lightning leads another group of Justifiers on an assault of the Hall of Justice and they capture Green Arrow. The final scene shows the rebirth of Darkseid and his final judgment that the holocaust on humanity should never end. The story much easier to follow than the earlier installments and moves along at a quick pace. The artwork by Jones and Pacheco is phenomenal. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the series plays out.

Overall due to the huge amount of improvement. This rates a 4 out of 5 Batmen.
