I liked the way Superman cut through the battle field like a knife through butter to retrieve Batman's body. I don't think I've seen Superman rage so much in a long time.
I'm not even sure he's really dead though, he looks like a corpse, but it wasn't really the Omega Beam that he hit Batman with. It was the Omega Sanction, Darkseid called it "The Death that is life". So he may not be dead, just completely fucked up and incapable of living in the normal sense.
Which is much worse than death.
Either way, FC has been a conflagration of Biblical proportions. The world of the DCU has been torn asunder, and things just keep getting worse. I don't see how they can stop the coming evil.
The anti life equation enslaved the world by being release on the internet, Darkseid and the New gods were reborn in the bodies of humans, Wonder Woman, Batwoman, Giganta, and Catwoman became Darkseid's new furies, Granny goodness infected the mind of an alpha lantern, tried to infect the Guardian's power battery.
Lois Lane was almost killed, which sent superman on a quest to save her while all the bullshit went down. Libra enslaved the entirety of the society of villains as the "one true prophet of anti life". Lex Luthor has betrayed them and is trying to help.
The Superhuman society has been fractured, with many of them falling to anti life.
I know, but how the fuck does reading that on the internet make you Darkseid's slave? What did he do? And how do the controlled act?
And how the hell would Granny Goodness turn those badass females of DC into Furies?! Doesn't it take like years of brutal torture, mind control, etc etc and all that? How does it fucking happen? I can't wrap my mind around it.
Still didn't answer my question about Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Batgirl, etc becoming his crazy bitches of darkness though. I find that really hard to swallow. How the fuck did they get caught?
....Or did they get an earful of the anti-life equation too?
Batgirl wasn't infected. And the only one who wasn't infected by anti life was Wonder woman. She was infected by some kind of virus by an possessed Mary Marvel, that caused her to be seriously deformed, and warped her mind.
This whole clusterfuck was unanticipated, no one saw it coming. They had no idea that the Gods would be reborn.
Batman wouldn't have been captured by Granny Goodness if it wasn't for her stealing the mind of a Lantern.
I also forgot to mention the clone army they were trying to make of Batman, but when they tried to sync the clones minds with Batman's, he turned his memories against them and made the clones kill themselves.
