Fashion is a capricious and fickle beast, especially when it comes to superhero couture. For every perfect Kid Flash or Booster Gold, we have a Prankster, a 3-D Man or a Polka-Dot Pirate.

or, OH thank HEAVENS it is finally over! With a sigh of relief I opened the pages of the last issue of Countdown, and with a similar sigh I closed them a few minutes later. They had not finished badly, as previous issues had suggested they might. Though they finished leaving me baffled, it was not â€œbad.â€ Countdown, issue number 1 (or 52, whatever), both finished off the Countdown saga, and paved a few stepping stones for Final Crisis.
Though this is a week late, and the review for the next episode will soon be following, I decided that I would uphold my end of the bargain and review Countdown to Final Crisis #3.

What was supposed to be the backbone of the DC Universe has failed miserably. But nevertheless we are only a few issues away from DCâ€™s Final Crisis. What will we see? Will Batman die?

But has it all come too late for Countdown to be counted as any sort of a success?
