Earth 2 #15 Review

We start this issue of Earth 2 off with a battle.  Who doesn't love a battle?  Earth's Wonders, vs. Apokolips's Terrors.  We've got the Flash, Dr. Fate, Green Lantern, The Atom, The Sand Men, and Red Arrow, going up against the new uglies Brutaal, Beguiler, and Bedlam.  The fight didn't go well, and in the end the only one standing, or I guess crawling is the Flash.
    Finally we see Hawkgirl back flying over Casablanca searching for a man named Darcy Twain.  Hawkgirl arrives at his castle only to be ambushed, by two new characters added to the story.  Hazard, and Melody.  Hazard tells Hawkgirl that the man she is looking for is only an alias of his, and that his real name is Roger Sharpe.

    Back in the savage Gotham, Wonder Woman's daughter Fury is battling Big Barda, and Mr. Miracle.  While searching for the new Batman, Big Barta and Mr. Miracle were attacked by Fury, who was sent by Steppenwolf to retrieve Mr. Miracle.  Mr. Miracle tells Barda to run because no matter what Fury does, he will be able to escape her.  Enter another new character to this story.  Red Tornado.  The story ends with Fury, and Mr. Miracle staring up at the new female Red Tornado telling them to yield.

    This issue is kinda funny where we get a lot of new characters, and even ones who haven't been around a lot.  But not much goes on in it.  Being James Robinson's last story I kinda hoped we see more, but I'm not going to complain when I get Mr. Terrific, Red Tornado, Hawkgirl, Big Barda, and Mr. Miracle in one book.  This book has been as good as it has because of James Robinson, and Nicola Scott.  I really hope that after the new writer takes over, the same freshness that this title has maintained continues.
