What Happened: This issue opens up with Cupid and Everyman saving and then assaulting a couple in a Star City Park. Green Arrow, Black Canary and Speedy respond to the scene a little later and Ollie reveals that he has mini cameras planted in all of his arrows... Uh-huh... Ollie and company manage to track Cupid and Everyman down to an abandoned apartment building thanks to his mini cameras. After breaking into Cupid's room, the heroes discover a TV set with a message from Cupid and Everyman. Cupid basically tells Ollie she's traded up and that she doesn't need him anymore. With that the building explodes and Cupid and Everyman make-out on a nearby rooftop. While making out, Cupid and Everyman are confronted by a bunch of army types. The army guys announce that Cupid was actually one of them once... Seriously? Is this really happening?!? Cue the flashback scene where we discover that Cupid was indeed a member of this black ops type team, except that she had a heart of gold... Ugh... After that flashback sequence, Cupid accuses the army guys of making the story up, and this issue ends with Ollie, Dinah and Mia confronting Cupid, Everyman and the army guys.
What I Thought: So now it seems that Cupid used to be a part of a black ops army unit... You know what, why the hell not? While were at it, how about we just kill off every other character in the DCU and rename it the CupidCU? God help me, I'm SICK and tired of Cupid!!! She's been the focal point of this series for at least 3 storylines and possibly as many as 10 issues! I don't care about Cupid, I don't care about her past or her flashback sequences, and I've got to say, I'm getting very close to not caring about this series anymore...
Score: 3 out of 10.Yeah, that's right, we get a Cupid flashback sequence in this issue. Take that X-Man75!!!
