Brightest Day #15: After some thought, I've decided to give this comic a score of: 0 out of 10.
Hmm, wait... I guess I should at least READ the comic before I rip it, shouldn't I? *sigh* Well, let's see if this comic rises above the 0 I predict it will earn...
This comic takes place entirely in the Martian Manhunter's mind, pretty much making it a pointless exercise. D'Kay, the EVIL green Martian manipulates MM's mind, making him believe Mars had been reborn(Mars: Rebirth, coming to comic book store near you soon!), he had become a member of the JLA and GLC and that he was happy. Then for some reason everybody in the JLA dies. However, Saint Barry Allen is decapitated, thereby bumping this comic's score up to at least a 2! Ahh how I could stare at that image of a headless Saint Barry forever... Beautiful... Anyway, MM figures out that something was wrong, or maybe D'Kay fills him in, I'm not really sure, nor do I care, which leads to MM attacking D'Kay. From there we head to the blue Starman and Congorilla playing chess at the JLA headquarters... CONGORILLA?! Well now we have to subtract a 1 from the final score because that retched fleabag appeared! Where was I... Oh yeah... This issue ends with Firestorm appearing before the two “Justice Leaguers” and I use that term as loosely as possible, to tell them that he was about to destroy the universe.
Well, I guess this could have been worse... I mean this comic could have given me a paper-cut that led to an infection and my subsequent death, so yeah, things definitely COULD have been worse. As it was this was another(in a long line)of Brightest Day comics I just don't care about. An entire issue spent in the Martian Manhunter's mind?? Congorilla playing chess?! Nah, I pass.
As for a score, we started out at 0, but I added 2 because of Saint Barry being beheaded... BUT I then proceeded to take away a 1 because I had to see Congorilla... So after some complicated mathematics, the score of this comic MUST be... Score: 1 out of 10.Now THAT is a welcome sight!!
