With the Ultra-Humanite defeated, Earth 2 has a new lease on life. The superheroes, or Wonders as they are called, are no longer feared. Huntress is the new Batman, while Dick Grayson has become Oracle. Good fights evil, and humanity goes about its normal life. Every wonder from Fury to Superman has every intension of making the most of their world’s rebirth by making sure nothing ever threatens it ever again.

5Story – 5: This was a pretty satisfying end to one of my favorite DC comics of recent years. While part of me sad to see it go, its arc has been finished without being too long and too full of unnecessary filler material. I admit I’m curious to see more of Earth 2’s heroes and villains. Yet at the same time, I’d prefer to let their adventures go on in my imagination rather than have someone else take on a new series. That, in my humble opinion, would make the entire series have less of an impact.

4Art – 4: The art was as smooth as the story. I could find nothing wrong with it at all.
5Cover Art – 5: This cover was the perfect one to finish the series finale of Earth 2: Society. It says, “It’s an ending, but it’s also a new beginning.” This is what the whole book said to me as well.

I reviewed Earth 2 for a while, and was really taken with Val-Zod. However, the weekly storyline torpedoed most of the development that Tom Taylor did, and made the story a countdown to cancellation. It’s a pity as Earth 2 was truly the N52. New characters, new start, new direction.

Good-bye Val-Zod… don’t be gone too long 🙂
