While on a rescue mission to the moon, Martian Manhunters finds the astronauts dead and learns that the Epiphany is coming. He warns the rest of the League so they can prepare. A series of attacks have occurred all over the world, at exactly the same time. There is talk of an organized terrorist attempt, but there are too many different cells with different ideologies. No one is safe. Since J’onn was the one who discovered the plot, people are turning to him for answers, but he has none. His solution? Kill him.

… That’s all I got. I gave up not even halfway through, because at that point I still had no idea what was going on. The story was so convoluted, with focus on too many characters, that made it extremely difficult to follow. There was no coherent thread that I could see. There was some dialogue at the beginning about J’onn really being a good guy vs. being a monster, but if that was where they were going, that theme was thoroughly lost. Skip. Dang, it’s proving to be much harder than I thought to find a good MM book =(
