Holy hannah, it’s a done-in-one!

I’m about a month late mentioning this, but Mr. Terrific No. 6 was a one-issue shot. In it, Mr. T fights an immaterial Frenchman, reminisces with an ex-girlfriend, and saves the day … all in 22 (or was it just 20?) pages.

It’s pretty standard superheroics, but we get some good characterization and some clever action. I’m continuing to enjoy Michael Holt’s point of view.

Meanwhile, around the NuDC, Batman’s feud with the Court of Owls spun its wheels, with a “Luke I Am Your Father”-caliber reveal. Shoehorning a new villain into the hero’s past is one of my least favorite tropes. It’s a way to build cheap heat around a new villain. And in Wonder Woman, the Amazons have been pretty heavily damaged, and there’s no hint of a plot yet.

Mr. Terrific has one more issue to go, and I’m going to miss it when it’s gone.
