You Thought Shit Got Real Before?  This Is The Real Shit!

So we're right in the think of things here in Forever Evil Land.  Ultra Man whooped Black Adam's ass, Batman's back, and Luthor is setting up his Legion of Doom.  All this plus all the tie-in issues, with the exception of Blight, because that doesn't matter at all with these stories, and we have a rompin' good time going on.  So let's continue the madness.

Explain It!:

We begin this issue with Catwoman being blindfolded, and led into the Bat Cave.  Batman hopes that those contingency cases he made to take down the Justice League if he needed to, will be useful in taking down the Crime Syndicate.  See it's forward thinking like making sure you can kill all your friends that really gets the job done.  But Batman is really interested in the Green Lantern contingency.  A Sinestro Corps. ring, he hopes that this will be just the thing to take down the cowardly Power Ring.  

Speaking of Power Ring, Deathstorm, and him are still in Central City arguing about who's fault it is, that the Rogues got away.  The name calling is stopped, when Grid orders Deathstorm back to the lab, so he can unlock Firestorm's ability to create Kryptonite.  But that leaves Power Ring to go after Captain Cold himself.  So he does what you'd expect him to do.  Power Ring freaks the hell out, and pleads with Grid to send him some backup.  It seems that the entire Syndicate is busy, Owlman is plotting against the Syndicate, Superwoman is telling Ultraman about Owlman's plans, and Johnny Quick, and Atomica are probably just out murdering folk, but Grid is going to send him some backup anyway.  So.

Speaking of Captain Cold, Luthor's Injustice League, I still prefer Legion of Doom, are going through the sewer, to try and sneak into Wayne Enterprises, but when Black Adam, and Bizarro break a hole into the building the team finds that they met by Batman and Catwoman.  But they are soon joined by Power Ring and his backup; The Secret Society.  The gang from JLA, Deathstroke, Giganta, Shadow Thief, Copperhead, you know the gang.  But Batman has his secret weapon, and what we get is pure badassery.

But that lasts for only a few seconds.  The ring is barely holding a charge, and Power Ring takes the ring off of Batman, and claims that no silly yellow ring could stop him.  As badass as it was to see Batman wield the yellow ring, after Power Ring makes his claims, it's even cooler when Sinestro shows up, wanting Power Ring to back up his claim.  Oh man Sinestro is back, prepare to fear!

Bits and Pieces:

We're right into the thick of this story now, and every time I think I can't get wow'ed anymore Johns comes round the corner and chucks a big WOW right into my face, and says "suck on that!"  I don't know if that's really accurate, but I believe it, and if you read this issue, I think you'll believe it too.  So go out, and get a boat load of awesome, and continue this massive event, because if you haven't been reading this yet you're missing out.
