DC just finished up The Button crossover this week in The Flash #22. This conclusion cleared up a lot of theories we had about the state of the DC Universe, with more revealed about Dr. Manhattan and SPOILERS… the return of Jay Garrick this was a big week. Although this story felt like a very middle portion of the a bigger story it was definitely changed the people and relationships of those involved. Batman is contemplating his life as Batman, which is something that is rarely seen, and Barry and Bruce are both trying to figure out how to move forward with this great mystery of the who changed the DC Universe. This will all come to an end in the new event Doomsday Clock by Geoff Johns and I for one am looking forward to it. Also check out: Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Nightwing, Teen Titans, Batwoman and Trinity.
Marvel continued with Secret Empire this week, which had quite a few surprises. This issue was spent recovering from the destruction of Las Vegas and the execution of Rick Jones. This issue introduced the two major plot lines of Secret Empire as well as many hints on how it will all wrap up. The issue concluded with SPOILERS… another Steve Rogers appearing, so who knows what that is about. I think Secret Empire is one of the better things that Marvel has done recently and hopefully it has an epic story. Also check out: Daredevil, Mighty Thor, Royals, Luke Cage, Star Wars, Punisher, and X-Men Gold.
