Read full description of the books Justice Society of America : Thy Kingdom Come:Question: What’s one benefit of reading another plodding story about a “multiverse”?
Answer: Two Power Girls! Fighting. Any more than two and I’d blow a gasket.
This is a continuation (read: watering down) of the excellent Kingdom Come story. It seems that the “god-like” Gog has come to Earth (Earth One) to “make things better” and he’s suckered in a couple of heroes by helping them:
Power Girl: Sent her back home to an alternate universe (Earth 2) in order to mix it up with her (no goatee) alternate universe doppleganger and Batman's child, the Huntress.
Damage: No more scars. He’s still an ass though.
Sandman: No more bad dreams, insominia. Now he can’t solve crimes. His dreams provide clues.
Dr. Mid-NIte: He can see again. His night sight, which is gone, helped him cure patients and thwart bad guys.
Hourman: He’s no longer a lunatic, but he’s still from the future.
Hawkman: He’s now an interesting character. (I kid. Divine intervention couldn’t make this happen.)
Old man Superman from Earth 22 (Kingdom Come) has seen all this before and he tries to warn the JSA.
This is a storyline you’ve read before. The “God” who’s just too good to be true and in Geoff John’s hands it reads as “been there, done that”. The only thing that saves it is Alex Ross’s contributions. His panels are strategically placed throughout and he draws and pens a particularly poignant issue involving Old Man Superman’s struggles to find a place in our reality.
Be careful what you wish for.
