Why is the Flash still alive? He betrayed Regime Superman, allowed the Batman to escape, why isn’t he dead? Shazam was killed for less. Martian Manhunter was killed for less. Flash is a full-blown traitor, and he’s alive because…? Forget the contrivance with Iris West, the fact that Flash is alive, even after taking a punch from Regime is exasperating. Why are these sort of sequences written, when Buccellato knows full well that they cannot be executed? If we know that certain characters cannot be harmed or killed, because they are player-characters for the video games, Buccellato should refrain from engaging them in such a sloppy manner, and an unsatisfying one at that. One last note, Regime Superman was at one point a very entertaining villain. Now he’s a two-dimensional loser, akin to most cookie-cutter bad guys. If given enough time, we’ll see him stroking his mustache as he reveals his master plan, then cackle loudly in evil delight. Oil Can Harry provided more substance and threat than this B-level Ultraman wannabe.
