Flashpoint #3 AND Fear Itself #4
We have Flashpoint #3 and Fear Itself #4, which has a nice continuity to it, and speaking of continuity we have one comic playing with it in an alternate universe in neat ways, and another that references a famous element of Tony Stark's character in one of the few things that weren't bad in the comic. I think you can already tell which series I like more.
Flashpoint has been good fun, but often suffered a bit from a case of exposition-itis. I suppose when you have a whole alternate-universe and only 5 issues in the main series to explore it you have to do a lot of explaining. Therefore, it was nice that while Flashpoint #3 still had plenty of plot-explaining chatter it also spent time breaking out from that for some good ol' action as the crew rescues a man that the government has kept locked-up since he crash-landed as a baby in a space-ship years ago. Yup, we finally meet this word's "Superman" and he is one pitiful fellow. Kept locked away for years from the sun, he is skinny, pale, and pretty depressed.
4 out of 5 stars.
