CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


To begin, Doomsday Clock (Issue #1 -Cover B by Gary Frank) is the first appearance of Rorschach II, the second Rorschach. Though suffering from mental illness, Ozymandias tasks him with finding Doctor Manhattan to cure his brain cancer.

Really, the comic is prophetic for the War in Ukraine: After Doctor Manhattan’s disappearance, nuclear threats have escalated and Russia invades Poland. Finally, the comic joins the story elements of DC Rebirth such as themes of darkness and cynicism with the Watchmen’s political intrigue.

The comic is good for your DC Rebirth collection. You will definitely love Gary Frank’s illustrations, Geoff Johns’s poignant writing, and the colorful scenes.

This product has 64 global ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.6 out of 5.

POSITIVE REVIEW

The customer review said: “Interesting stuff, won’t get into spoilers but I will say the art is fantastic and the writing is great. It was a fun read and I can’t wait to check out how this story unfolds. Oh as there’s this character called the Mime, already a fan favorite lol.”

NEGATIVE REVIEW

There are 2 negative global ratings. One negative review commented on the controversial sequel: “As one of those who actually understood Watchmen when I read it. FYI There is no team called Watchmen anywhere in Alan Moore’s book. The characters from that and from the DC Universe have no need to meet.

They have nothing in common. What Alan did was return to the pulp magazine origins of the super hero myth…The Shadow, Doc Savage, The Avenger (The original Paul Ernst/Lester Dent creation whose name was Richard Benson) and take them along a slightly different path. He has said so more than once.”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Talented team of Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.
  • Kindle & Comixology formats available.
  • DC Rebirth story.
  • Nine-panel grid.
  • Prophetic comic reflected in current events.

NEGATIVE:

  • Controversial sequel.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this DC Rebirth comic as Geoff Johns’ prophetic masterpiece on the DC Universe and current events.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

#WEOPPOSEBLACKADAM AND ASYLUM FOR CRIMINALS

In Doomsday Clock, Prime Earth is divided by the Supermen Theory. In fact, 97 percent of metahumans on Earth are of American nationality. According to the theory, their existence is due to a superhuman arms race between governments. As a result, many nations have created their own superhuman teams. Notably, Russia has created the “People’s Heroes.” Indeed, their objective is to defend against “America’s manufactured metahumans.”1 Furthermore, the Justice Leaguer Firestorm has been angered at his purported links to the theory.

In Doomsday Clock (2018) #5, Black Adam makes a public announcement. As Batman intercepts Adrian Veidt in the Owlship, the police pursue in the air. In fact, Veidt is wanted for the purported assassination attempt on Lex Luthor. As the Owlship hurtles down after being hit, Batman watches the Black Adam report. Sinisterly, the former JSAer invites all persecuted metahumans to Kandhaq for asylum. Though a welcome gesture, we suspect it was to build Kandhaq’s own metahuman criminal army. Hence, #WeOpposeBlackAdam and asylum for criminals.

AGAINST BLACK ADAM: HE HARBORED KNOWN SUPERVILLAINS AND VIOLATED THE AGREEMENT AMONG NATIONS

In Doomsday Clock (2019) #8, Firestorm accidentally commits terror. Illegally, Firestorm enters Russia’s airspace to clear his name. When the “People’s Heroes” confront him, Ronnie accidentally turns civilians into glass. Then, he escapes. In Metropolis, Clark and Lois watch the news report. Immediately, Clark changes into Superman and heads for Kandhaq.

There, he greets Black Adam and is in search of Firestorm. Quickly, he notices the Creeper and Giganta. Clearly, Black Adam is harboring known supervillains. Sternly, Superman scolds the head of state for his breach. Specifically, it is the agreeent for metahumans to not cross any nations’ borders without sanction. In addition, Black Adam metes out justice without due process. For his part, Superman is the only hero authorized to cross nations’ borders.

FOR BLACK ADAM: HE OFFERED ASYLUM TO SLAVES ON KANDHAQ

Though, Black Adam is not really a humanitarian nor activist. As a head of state, he defends the Supermen Theory. In fact, he claims some metahumans in Kandhaq were part of it. Certainly, he plans to raise his own metahuman army.
