BONUS REVIEW by John "Doc" Schaefer

Grant Morrison's at it again. And this time DC is giving him all 52 universes (Although I think we have lost a few all ready)! What we are given is the Obama Superman from way back in Action Comics #9 leading the charge. Hopefully, Morrison will be able to recapture his muse from his Animal Man multiverse days. Avengers' parody, the return of Captain Carrot, a female Aquaman! This book has potential. Only downfall is an ultimate evil that looks like one of my daughter's Monster High toys and has need of henchmen. Psychology be darned, if you are the ultimate evil you have no need for henchmen. I mean really, ok they're really evil henchmen but really.

I give it 8 out of 10 Grahams
