    I really liked this final issue of the Convergence: Detective Comics series! I've always loved the concept of Earth-2, whether it be the original issues back in the 30s, 40s or 1950s or the current New 52 continuity series, the idea of an alternate universe where the same characters exist but differently has always been something that I've enjoyed. It's a way to see what would happen if Dick Grayson never became Nightwing and a way to see the original Flash and Green Lantern's once again. This is why I have loved these issues of Detective Comics, because after Earth-2 Batman died we never really saw the aftermath outside of Earth-2 characters appearing in Crisis on Infinite Earths! This way, we see both Batman's daughter, Huntress, and son, Robin and what they are doing after his death, and I've just got to say that I love the ending!

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Four - Chapter #4

Released Digitally: May 26, 2015

"The Price"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Mike S. Miller
Inker: Mike S. Miller
Cover: Art Thibert and Thomas Mason

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Of course it isn't over, there's still a year to go and sales are better than healthy. Buccellato has decided to ignore much, if not all, of the groundwork lain by Tom Taylor, and regress both the characters and the story between its inception and Regime's battle with Kalibak. That time period still offered a character who was struggling with the direction he had taken, before taking the final step towards his complete corruption. He then killed several characters, most notably, Green Arrow, who was the only one that posed no actual threat. No, GA was killed because Regime was angry, tuit suite. It was a despicable act, but one that cemented the torus of Regime Superman. He was now a killer, and would do what he felt necessary to get the job done. In the most recent fight between him and the Batman, exclaims this position for all hear... well, read, as a needless reminder of what he's become. Only, he hasn't become that person. No, he's been returned to a facade of him former self to extend the cash-grab that is Injustice: God Among Us. The story is supposed to be five years long, even if there are no stories to tell after Year Two. So, when he has Batman within his sights, dead to rights, he'll just let him go. He won't apprehend him, force him to give up his location, and take him out of the picture. Perhaps he might follow him surreptitiously to his bunker, but that would require a level of thought and planning denied Regime or Superman proper as a character. No, he's just going to let him go, because while everyone else: The Joker, Martian Manhunter, Captain Atom, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Mogo, Ganthet, etc., while these characters were expendable, there's just something about Batman, like there was about Mary. From start to finish, that is the ultimate disappointment of this series: the chance to do something big and weighty, but was never thought of any further than the bottomline.

June 2, 2015: Dean Cain Talks About "Supergirl" TV SeriesPrint

Dean Cain ComicsContinuum.com caught up with Dean Cain to ask him about his role in the upcoming "Supergirl" TV series.

    "If you didn't freeze frame the trailer, you wouldn't have seen me, because it was very, very quick!" he joked.

    "I think the show is going to do fantastically. I think Melissa Benoist is perfectly cast. She has a great humility about her, and she has that Super-thing where you're, like, rooting for her - that's an intangible thing, and she has it, and I think it's going to do very, very well."

Dean Cain also revealed that he's playing the voice of Jonathan Kent on the upcoming "DC Super Hero Girls" animated TV special.

Reviewed by: Michael Bailey

    While this issue was one, long fight scene I think that Gray managed to put enough character into the story to make that fight scene mean something. It was an interesting choice having the fight go down between Wonder Woman and Power Girl instead of Superman vs. Superman and I ended up liking that despite being a wee bit disappointed that I didn't get to see the two Supermen throw down. Again this goes to Gray's ability to make the dynamic between Wonder Woman and Power Girl compelling enough to make me overcome my expectations.
