-The characters are Fat-strong meaning fat hands, small wrists fat feet and just plain detestable to look at. I also can't tell the difference between Superman angry or if he just has his eyes closed. Childish art. It serves to promote the thought that comics are for children.
-Filled with "inspirational" speeches from presidents past, possibly to inspire the reader, on almost every page(Completely unnecessary, it takes you out of the moment.).
-A comic to buy knowing you will only regret.
I honestly recommend that you just read the summary online instead, it will be far more entertaining.
I can safely say I prefer The Dark Knight Strikes Again over this crap any day.
So what might seem confusing to some, is really a great story of awesome proportions.
I thought "wow-this has to be an epic story with epic action, I got to get this !" The whole concept of villains and heroes teaming up to fight a greater threat-is always an awesome concept. The Justice League, Lex Luthor, Darkseid, & bunch of others teaming up to fight Imperix-it sounds awesome….but thats where it stops.
The idea is great but the story is poorly executed!!! The writing is terrible. During the whole story (and I mean from beginning to end) their was a long war speech during the ENTIRE book. At first it confused me, as i kept reading it -i said, ok maybe their trying to be dramatic with it since Imperix is destroying the earth, but after a few pages-it just keeps going and going al the way to the end. It eventually got super annoying. The speech had no correlation to what was happening in each individual page. it was totally unnecessary!
We saw all the build up in the beginning to where everyone being ready for when Imperix comes. Characrters seeking allies to face Imperix. This goes on in the first couple of pages…then all of a sudden Superman is ALREADY in a fight with Imperx. No explanation as to how it started? where he was? I think i read a review someone else posted and this book must be missing some issues on the TPB. Because a lot of things just jumped around and i felt like i must have missed something.
TERRIBLE WRITING !!
Read Forever Evil (New 52) ! (Great Writing and Story!!!)
A lot of the reviewers are right when they say that the story makes no sense. The readers are basically bombarded with cast of characters, slug-fest after slug-fest after slug-fest, massive casualties and a vain attempt at being emotional. The story basically revolves around Imperix probes landing on Earth and for some cliched reasons wants to destroy Earth. Of course Superman, the JLA and every major DC heroes are going to try and stop them. There is one battle after another...people die (Aquaman, Steel, Wonder Woman's Mom, The Kents etc.) There is also a Supergirl story thrown in there for no reason...and the story is pretty bad. The idea however had a lot of potential but the pacing and the particular focus of different writers drag it downhill. A better story is created out of the aftermath of Our Worlds at War, which is JLA: The Obisidian Age (see my review).
Superman also teams up with Darkseid to stop Imperix but the nature of their relationship escapes me...one moment they are advicing each other and the next moment, Darkseid is beating on Superman to get him to wear a suit?!
The art is pretty bad also. I never was a big fan of manga and Ed. McG mostly draws manga. There are other artists whose work is sub-par. The best of the lost being Doug Mahnke.
My advice is to skip over this arc. It is pointless, confusing and you'll soon wish for a refund (anybody want to buy mine?). Trust me when I say you won't miss a thing. This money is better spent on JLA: Trial by Fire or JLA: Obisidian Age.
