Earth 2 #24 meanders a bit as the Kryptonian still doesn’t make any headway toward becoming a superhero. An angsty Batman chews him out, the geeky hacker kid tries to smooth things over, and Val takes off his shirt. Seriously, that’s the big finale for the issue.

The good part is Green Lantern and Hawkgirl rescuing Flash from Beguiler and a legion of parademons. For whatever reason, Green Lantern is ridiculously powerful and pretty much invincible. They storm Beguiler’s fortress and make an easy escape.

The issue has good artwork and coloring that all looks very modern and superhero like. That said, it doesn’t stand out. The style gets lost in all the other superhero comics out there. There’s nothing to really set it apart. The best scenes tend to be the ones with Batman looking stoic, though I did like the Hawkgirl panels. There are some good shots of her. However, in the end, it just doesn’t make much of an visual or emotional impact.

Overall, an enjoyable issue, but not a standout comic. It blends in. As such, it’s something you want to chew through to get to the next one. I give it a three and half out of five metal bikinis. It’s not bad, it just doesn’t deliver a whole lot to make it worth your time.
