Wonder Woman is welcomed by the Quintessence. They want her to join them to witness a new era of growth and possibilities in the DC Omniverse. Wonder Woman is hesitant and nervous about the darkness that she was told would come as a result of her choice. To put her at ease the Quintessence sends her with the Spectre around the DC world to see what her friends are doing. This issue is then an oversized preview comic. Wonder Woman travels to see Batman's world, then she sees her mother give the crown to Nubia, then she sees Yara embark on a trip to Brazil. She also sees Alan Scott come out to his children, the establishment of Teen Titans Academy, Green Arrow and Black Canary enjoy an intimate moment, Stargirl save the day, John and Simon take Teen Lantern to OA, and Barry and Wally talk about their futures. She's also told that Superboy will become an evil that will destroy the world. And then at the end she rejects the Quintessence's offer and returns to her world. Immediately afterwards the Quintessence is murdered by a super charged Darkseid.

3Story - 3: The format for this did nothing for me. It was just a preview issue for what is coming up for DC. Stargirl, Justice League and The Flash were the most interesting to me. I don't want to spoil it, but Barry makes a crazy choice and that puts Wally in the position to finally get some love again. If they did two comics, one following Barry, and one following Wally, that would be sweet. I'm kind of over Superboy being the doom of the future. And most of the previews didn't really excite me. But the rise of this super charged Darkseid intrigues me, and definitely bumped up the excitement for DC and enjoyment of this story. I am cautiously intrigued by the Justice League title, I think I will wait for a couple of months, just to see what Bendis does with it.

4Art - 4: The art is done by so many different artists that it is difficult to rate. For the most part it was all outstanding except for Stargirl and the final pages of Darkseid. I did not care for the art by Todd Nauck, and I have yet to see John Romita Jr. do art in DC that I like. I liked the clean, crisp art of the Justice League section.

5Cover Art - 5: I love this cover, I want this as a poster.

5Variant Cover Art - 5: This cover was fantastic as well. It really showcased Wonder Woman's look in this issue.
