One huge problem I have always had with the DC Universe is that their heroes are created too powerful. The likes of Superman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, etc. are shown here to do some unbelievably feats yet they are also succumb to things that wouldn't seem to make sense given their power displays earlier. It's the unevenness that bothers me and its quite evident here. This story, focusing on Martina Manhunter isn't bad but at times it was hazy as what exactly was going on. That could be Joe Kelly's fault or the artist, Doug Mahnke, might not have been clear enough. Mahnke does provide some spectacular visuals. There are certain scenes here that I will always remember. They are that good. However, there is are a lot of pages that seem to lack that same effort. Overall, this is a an interesting book that is a little convoluted but worth your time.
