About this deal

He appears in so many stories as the ultimate savior or threat (there was a similar plot in JSA) but I still do not really get the character.

But if you can't find it, or dont like omnibus because of their size, I'd really recommend reading Countdown to Final Crisis, The Omac Project, Sacrifice, and Crisis of Conscience, to get the most of it. If you are a fan of those kind of theories, you might give the book more then the three stars I gave it. Part of that is Johns' usage of the survivors of the multiverse (which is rather brilliant) and his careful repetition of elements like the Anti-Monitor and the multiple worlds.This is truly a fitting omnibus, weaving together the many storylines which all integrated into Infinite Crisis into a coherent whole. It collects not only Infinite Crisis but the all the content leading up to it for the few preceding years.

Since it’s comic books, of course these seemingly unrelated things are all part of the plot of our bad guys for yet another nefarious purpose. This is the Superman story that serves as the loose connection between Identity Crisis and Day of Vengeance, as Eclipso swears vengeance on Shazam and possesses Jean Loring. The only other stories that are also very important to understanding the main story are: Identity Crisis, which is essential to read before the beginning of this book: and the grandaddy of all big events, Crisis On Infinite Earths Deluxe Edition. The individual arcs were nice enough but the way it all ties together for infinite crisis was great.I apologize for slamming some of Rucka’s work in my previous reviews, he shined through out these stories. The huge hordes of the Society are a lot of fun, but the real joy in this book is obviously the stars, The Secret Six.

I read the event before with Absolute Infinite Crisis ( review here) and loved it, but rereading the entire event with all of the supplemental lead-up, is a completionist's wet-dream.While I did enjoy most of the book, I did find the Villains United story and even parts of the Rann-Thanagar War boring and a bit unnecessary. The way NO ONE in the story seemed to grasp that is why I hate the logic behind not killing some villains; it just isn't realistic in some situations. The idea that these heroes are an ideal to aspire to, and therefore, shouldn't be fallible, is a bit of a fallacy for me. Some suggestions that I already have on my list is the Loeb run of Batman/Superman and the Day of Judgement mini-series. But the way it all’s ties together reminded me of recent conspiracy theories that people are believing.
