So Superwoman wears open-toed shoes? That’s kinda weird. Distinct? Maybe. But still weird.

So we’ve got the Crime Syndicate going up against Starro, who was of course the Justice League’s first opponent way back in 1960’s The Brave and the Bold #28. Here’s my question: In a book full of bad guys, who am I supposed to be rooting for? Superwoman? Owlman? It just seems like everybody in this book is an evil monster.

Ultraman, an evil version of Superman, uses the term “fake news” early in this issue. That feels right.

This issue does a nice job of introducing us to the Crime Syndicate characters. Ultraman in particular.

I was hoping they’d find a way to hook us with an intriguing story or idea. No such luck.
