Earth 2: World’s End #11 (DC Comics)

Writers: Daniel H. Wilson
Artists: Scott McDaniel and Paulo Siqueira

Story:

After Mister Miracle’s failed attempt with the Boom Spheres, Darkseid is now free. Fury steps in to help Miracle fight the tyrant off, but then out of the blue, Big Barda betrays them which forces Fury to stay behind to cover him. Miracle tries to make a run for it and Darkseid uses his Omega Beams on him….

Spoiler Corner:

…to no effect since they are somehow cancelled out by the Boom Spheres. The two of them continue to battle, Miracle thinking he has a shot now… and then Darkseid wins (so what was even the point?). Darkseid puts Miracle in chains and offers Fury one chance to return to him and become one of his Furies or she’s dead. She accepts his offer. He throws a similar deal to Miracle, but he refuses and now will face death along with the rest of Earth 2.

Does Fury have something up her sleeve in regards to “joining” Darkseid? When she is away from sight, Terry Sloan appears and offers her up some information on where Mister Miracle is being kept and where the two of them need to be.

Fury heads out to rescue Mister Miracle almost immediately, though he has doubts about her sincerity in rescuing him. The two of them travel to the place Sloan suggested they go and find themselves watching the Court of Apokolips from above.

In the Court, Sloan is seen talking directly to Darkseid. It turns out that Sloan is from New Genesis and has an offer from High Father himself: “Feel free to feast on and destroy this Earth as long as you leave New Genesis alone.” The new revelation angers Miracle and Fury and they decide to invest their alliance with the humans solely.

Thoughts:

First, I’m mixed on the fact that this issue focused solely on one storyline.

I think it’s good that it didn’t stretch out a single plotline for several months and gave the issue extra focus. On the other hand, the story here felt completely rushed and seemed to skip over a lot of story elements. Then there is the whole Big Barda betrayal, which came out of nowhere; Mr. Terrific and Sandman’s token appearance before they completely disappeared, the cheesy pose at the end of the book, and so much more. Though I will say the comic looked a whole lot better when one person was actually drawing the book (Paulo, while Scott did the breakdowns).

Most Memorable Moment:

I’m rather concerned where his eyes disappeared to in the second panel.
