After the terrorist
attack by the Firestorm from Qurac, Ronnie and Jason are left with
an "Aftermeth of Rage." While Ronnie's reaction to the heinous act
was well written, it's Jason who once again is rendered as a total
jerk; it is not just the perceived indifference coming from him, but
the words coming out of his mouth that also put the character in a
really bad light.
The scale of the attack from last issue is huge, and even in the
world of comics, such a thing would have had worldwide
ramifications; so if the next issue does not address reactions
across the DCnU, then Van Sciver and Simone may have taken these
events a little too far. Yildiray Cinar continues shining with his
artwork, and Norm Rapmund's inks and Hi-Fi's colors just make it
even better. As a whole, the issue is better than previous
installments, but the next one has its work cut out for it.
