Batman and Superman are basically being attacked by some alien being who apparently wants to wipe out humanity(of course!); they initially think it's the Martian Manhunter. However, they become perplexed as the alien seems to take on different/older forms of various heroes and villians they have faced in the past.

This is a pretty good Superman/Batman story. The art is good (although the last chapter is done by different artist than the rest and that threw me off a bit, ironically though I like the inks in that chapter the best). Yes, the ending is a little cheesy, along the lines of "If we just believe and'll be OK, pal!". There are some good action scenes but no major climatic battle, really. BUT it's still a nice little story. Alfred is narrating in this one and I liked that. The focus in this story is a bit more on Batman, which was fine with me. The little homage to old-school characters was interesting and fun to see.
How are the real enemies, are they real are made up by someone else to control the masses. Or the few.
I've made my way through all of the Superman/Batman volumes, and this is one of the best - definitely way better than Vol 4. I am partial to this style of penciling and color, and I think the detail in each panel tells the story perfectly. I especially like the ending. Some may think it's cheesy, but I think it wraps up all of the loose ends and stays within believability of the characters. My advice....keep up with this great series (and skip Vol 4 - you won't miss anything).
I don't quite like Ethan Van Sciver's art. I don't know why. Seems like the characters change muscle definition in each page.

Anyway, this story is the first non-Jeph Loeb so is remarkably different. Not sure if is a good thing though. I don't consider this to be a bad story, but I do think that the hardocre veteran fans that know more of the silver age will enjoy this one more than a regular fan. There's a lot "Old Day's" characters in the book that only a few select people will know.

For instance.. I had no idea The Martian Man Hunter used to have a side-kick. Hum!!?.

Also seems to be there's a small connection between this book and "Emperor Joker" (if I'm not wrong), although maybe is not such a huge deal.

The first 4 chapters are incredibly confusing, although after that the story start to get shape. Honestly, although the end is kind of cool, it doesn't compensate a lot of "where am I" moments.

By the way, I have no idea where in the time line to put this book. The Martian Man Hunter is using the uniform he made himself in 52, however there haven't been any mention of Infinite Crisis or none of the other events.

Anyway, I give it a 3 because the art is somewhat ok but not cool and the story is so-so.
it was an awesome story told through the eyes of alfred. all the aliens take a turn for the worse what else needs to be said

Pretty good overall. The story and artwork are a bit of a dropoff from the previous volumes; but, I found it to be an enjoyable read.
I've really enjoyed this series and, like many of the other reviewers, particularly Loeb's work on it, but I didn't find this book to be the travesty that the others make it out to be. It's really not that bad. I even enjoyed it. I'm kind of shocked by the extremely negative reviews here. It's not my favorite, Mark Verheiden run over your dog or something?
I, like many other reviewers here, have purchased and read all of the previous four Superman/Batman graphic novels. All of them, in their very own way, have been great (yes, even Vengence and Absolute Power had their moments of awesome-ness). However, this fifth entry is not only poorly written and choppy, but the overall story set forth by much of the other four books is completely thrown out the window. Verheiden can do some excellent writing. He's done it for previous works on Superman and his runs on Smallville are almost always "season higlight" quality. Here, on the other hand, he doesn't seem to know what to do with the majority of these characters. I didn't know who was who and why they were doing what they were doing even after finishing the book. I like a challenge when reading, but a good challenge; not something poorly written and choppy from cover-to-cover.

In the end, you can easily skip this novel as it serves no greater purpose in the entirity of the Superman/Batman series. If you are like me and you are a completionist, however, then you will already have this book ordered and/or sitting in front of you right now. Good reading!
