So I just read Final Crisis on Comixology for the first time and I must say, I had NO IDEA what was happening during any of that. I had to read the plot summary on here to get an understanding of it all. It was probably one of the worst things I've ever read in all of DC history. I don't know if the cross-over issues played big parts in it but by just reading the 7 issues of FC, you have no idea what was going on. My brain hurts now. How did Mandrakk have anything to do with it and where did he come from? Like there are so many questions now.....it was just horrible. End rant.
Well, that was the most confusing thing I've ever read.
Final Crisis is classic Morrison. In an effort to feel smarter than his readers, he only includes half the story in the actual book so he can criticize anyone who doesn't 'get it'. It's poorly written, plain and simple. It's chalk full of holes in the plot, and characterizations are awful. Superman saves the multiverse with his magical karoke machine. Batman uncovers Darkseid's plot, and his response is to not tell the JLA and instead save a special God-Killing Bullet so that he may later use a Firearm in an act of Premeditated Murder. But you know, it's okay, because he says "I'm making an acception". Personally, I've got no issues with a Hero that kills, but Batman has spent 70 years telling us that he doesn't do that. For him to pluck that bullet out of the crime scene, figure out that it's Darkseid from the future, and then go "Hey, I'll hang onto this God-Killing Bullet so I can use it later to murder Darkseid", that goes against all his characterization. Poorly written. Morrison can usually handle an ongoing, but he really blows when it comes to the crossover events.
