Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Three - Chapter #21

Released Digitally: February 16, 2015

"Goodbyes and Farewells"

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Penciller: Bruno Redondo & Juan Albarran
Inker: Juan Albarran
Cover: Mike S. Miller with J. Nanjan

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

    There were a lot of things that were structurally wrong with this issue, and most, if not all of it stems from poor editing and a lack of knowledge on these grand characters. Previously Batman was knocked out and Regime Superman was still hearty enough to fight. This installment, Regime looks about to faint, while Batman has regained his footing. Wonder Woman snaps Huntresses neck, but the super-pill had given the Insurgency enough power to contend with even Regime. Deadman is able to summon the magic lightening, let alone know the magic word? It's all disjointed and uncompromisingly indolent. It cannot be that hard to review what happened in the previous issue, as this reviewer did, of even do a basic wiki on these character. Captain Marvel, on his reboot to being called "Shazam" (which this issue demonstrates as a singularly foolish move) was given the ability to summon the lightening only when he chose to, not just because the word is said. However, even if that portion didn't take, Marvel's magic resistance makes him immune to possession. Earlier in Year Three, we saw that there is a duality to the nature of Captain Marvel when his mind was entered i.e. Deadman, even if it were possible, could possess only one aspect of Marvel, not both. The aforesaid notwithstanding, is there anyone who doesn't know the magic word? It has to be the worst kept secret, even moreso now that it couples as Marvel's new name. Poison Ivy contending with Swamp Thing isn't even worthy of consideration. However, Wonder Woman's manslaughter of Huntress (couldn't ask for better nouns to string) begs the question of the super-pill: What exactly does it do? How long does it last? It made Jim Gordon strong, but also accelerated his cancer. The Insurgency can fight with Superman, with no obvious damage, but Wonder Woman's tug snaps a neck? It's Deus ex Machina at its lowest, Injustice is low enough as it is, right now. A competent editor could point out this errors, and a good editor could help repair them, but obviously that's not needed for Injustice, as there no regard that its readership is concerned with such things.

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    Once again we have a story that proves to me why this is perhaps one of the best New 52 titles out there. Characterization has been more or less consistent, and pacing is at its usual lightning speed. I tend to be sad when I get to the last page of every issue because I continue to want more.

    I sincerely hope I'm wrong about one thing. I feel like Kara is using Mike Harris for the distinct purpose of the writers finding a reason to write out or get rid of the character. He has great potential as part of Supergirl's supporting cast, and putting him out to pasture so soon after he came into Kara Zor-El's life would be a shame.

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

    An exceptionally poor installment, this week's Injustice brings what the discerning reader had probably realized some time ago: there is no story here and yet, more issues are to come. The plodding and padding of the sequences is absurd at this point, as it's obvious that a certain number of issues must occur in a single year of Injustice, regardless of whether or not they are needed or merited. How long can a fight between Trigon and Mxyzptlk continue, what has become of the Spectre, how long do the super-pills last, how could the Insurgency escape from Swamp Thing, why isn's Batman dead? These questions swirl around the epicenter of this mess, with the realization that they won't be sufficiently answered. They cannot be. A cogent answer for any of them reduces the issue to less than birdcage liner, and there are still two more years to go. However, how long can Injustice continue without a basic centre or a solid core? The book is moving strictly on the inertia generated from a false start out of the gate, and an obliviousness to the fact that it has done so.
