God (or somebody) knows, there are enough things to be angry about in actual worlds without obsessing over what happens in this. I won't spoil the story by saying more than I just did, except for this:
Those of you who recall such things may remember how Alan Moore's Marvelman/Miracleman took a child's dream of flying and turned it into an adult horror story. I believe that this was done well.
The same group may recall what Ron Marz did to the continuity of another popular DC comic book protagonist. I believe that that kind of sucked.
I'll leave it to you to place what Dan DiDio has just done in this context. Feel free to comment (& post spoilers in comments) if you've already read "Countdown to Infinite Crisis," and have an opinion of it.
