This was a dark issue, darker than this book usually is, some people might complain about that but I loved it! This issue was suspenseful and cool, Martian Manhunter has gone crazy and has elevated powers and now he is going after Batman and Superman. While it may seem like the superhero gone rogue thing has been done too many times before, but it really works in this issue. Verheiden pulled it off. Van Sciver’s art is wonderul as usual too. By far my favorite quote this issue must have been, “Your fine, is someone else’s two weeks bed-rest” – Superman to Batman.

In this issue we find out that it wasn’t really Martian Manhunter last issue but a different shape-shifter. This creature is apparently part of a bigger plot and is able to control Green Lanterns, which is why it is able to control Kilowog and Hal Jordan this issue. I don’t know if I liked this issue quite as much as the last but it was still good. Certainly a lot better than anything Loeb wrote when he was on this book. The art is fantastic and I am wondering who exactly is behind all this craziness. I look forward to next issue.
