Comic Book Report: Final Crisis Aftermath: Run
Dark, ironic, and hilarious. Writer Matthew Sturges tells the story of the Human Flame, a second-rate criminal who was involved in the murder of the Martian Manhunter, and manages to make him completely human, if not wholly sympathetic. Plus, actual science--not made-up technobabble/magic--saves the day in the end.
And how can you not enjoy a supervillain named Condiment King who speaks in bad food puns ("I'm so glad you mustard up the courage...")? That's straight out of The Tick. And we love the Tick.
