Oh no they di'n't! ...Damn. Oh yes they did.
They killed Hercules Unbound! In his first issue back! Argh!
Sure, it might be misdirect but his energy is now in Kid Darkseid so that's unlikely. Or, he could just be brought back but with the finality of this death then where's the incentive to stick around for those fans of his? And, DC just gives up their copy of a Marvel cashcow? Well, there is the in media res first page foreshadowy tease.
Anyways, it was an interesting set up story with pretty good art. Good to see Grail back and surprising to see Darkseid is hitting puberty again as a growing boy! Say what?! How did that happen? (Hmm... how long ago did Marvel do this with their Zeus?) The aftermath scene with Diana and Steve was pretty generic after Wonder Woman defeated Giganta (disappointingly) with one punch at the end of a fight that started sometime BEFORE this issue. Curious to see that the Amazon is the beneficiary of Herc's estate. Guess we'll learn if they were aquainted in the new Rebirth canon.
