Excellent summary of the many high points.
Loved this issue. It reminded me why I read comics. Its not all about big fights (though those are fun) it's the character moments.
Works as a stand alone story, but also entices readers to what happened before: "How did we get here?!?!?"
and what happens next:
"I"m having a wedding thing?" "Yes, because I'm coming."
I think Batman hit the pitch because...
It was his book, so he wins "the battle."
Clark could not throw full speed, as ball would come apart like it did in the Natural!
