One Good Thing And One Bad Thing About Brightest Day #6

BAD THING: More adventures of Ronnie Raymond: Drunken Jackass Frat Boy Who Needs To Die Again NOW.

GOOD THING: Thankfully, as unpleasant as their story is, at least the Firestorm subplot seems to be going somewhere with this issues revelation. Actually, all of the story-lines seem to be developing interesting wrinkles this time, with Mera explaining the true nature of her home dimension, a third entity having infiltrated the Firestorm Matrix and J'onn J'onzz now killing plant-life with his presence. Oh, and it looks like the White Lantern isn't meant to be used for raising the dead... though nobody seems to know what it IS meant to be used for.

The Final Verdict: All the stalled story lines seem to be picking up speed now. As before, the Aquaman/Mera and Martian Manhunter subplots are the most interesting and best developed. At least the Firestorm stuff was a little less annoying this time around.


  1. I really hope the cliff-hanger doesn't end stupidly. She's in the new Young Justice show. Plus, haven't we had enough Titans shock deaths?

  2. Can we have a J'onn and Squirrel Girl crossover?

  3. I'd temporarily end my Marvel boycott for that one. :)

  4. Apparently not. But hey - killing someone off or taking them out of picture just as they get a TV gig isn't anything unusual.
