Roy Harper finds himself forced to do things on his own. He’s been through a lot since he was Green Arrow’s sidekick, and usually, the only person he can count on is himself. Hence, he’s hiding the fact that he’s back from the dead from his old friends. He comes across Jade, who has also been stranded by herself-can he help her while letting her help him? Because neither of them can handle Darkseid all by their lonesome. Meanwhile, Barry Allen sends out a call: it’s time for all the heroes exploring the Infinite Frontier to come to the Omega Planet!

President Superman finds himself in the wrong world, and it isn’t looking good. Bones and Chase attempt to stop super-powered heroes and villains from crossing Multiversal lines. If they can shut down the President of Steel, they think that it will serve as a signal to all to not mess with Earth-0! This is only a distraction, however, as Injustice Incarnate begins to show them the worst the Multiverse has to offer, and only Flashpoint Batman is there to lend the heroes backup.

Barry Allen’s history with the Psycho-Pirate isn’t pleasant. The Flash encountered this mind-bending villain all the way back in the original Crisis on Infinite Earths, and it did not end well for the Scarlet Speedster. For the first time since his death and rebirth, Barry runs afoul of this foe-hopefully it will go better this time around! That is, if the even bigger villain behind the Pirate stays out of the fray, or if President Superman of Justice Incarnate sticks around to help win the day.

Review: Infinite Frontier #2

Infinite Frontier #2

While the recent Death Metal storyline was a bit mixed in its quality, its legacy is potentially massive for the DC Universe. The event has opened up a comic universe of infinite possibilities. Characters are back and an infinite amount of worlds and universes exists. Infinite Frontier is the series that looks to explore all of those possibilities and Infinite Frontier #2 expands that a lot as it continues its investigation of the mysteries set up in the debut issue.

Written by Joshua Williamson, Infinite Frontier #2 packs a lot into the issue. There’s the mystery of the disappearance of Jade and some characters who may not have returned from the dead. There’s the new Black Lantern. Then we have Thomas Wayne’s crash landing. Finally, there’s the D.E.O. that looks like it’s getting back in business. Any one of those storylines could be an entire issue. But, Williamson balances them well delivering just enough for each to move forward in a satisfying way.

And he still delivers a hell of a shock at the end.

Infinite Frontier #2 is solid in not just putting the pieces of the storylines together but also feels like a fun tour of the DC Universe for new readers. As President Superman and Thomas Wayne examine Wayne’s appearance we get to see ship crashes on different Earths. It’s a fun tour and there’s a few that may have some massive implications. And implications is part of what this issue is about. It’s not just what’s to come but also what it means for the return of all of these characters. Which versions are back? Who hasn’t returned? All of that is thrown out making the series even more intriguing.

With so many stories and worlds, the art is handled by the trio of Paul Pelletier, Jesús Merino, and Xermánico. Norm Rapmund, Merino, and Xermánico handle the ink with Romulo Fajardo, Jr. on color, and Tom Napolitano on lettering. The art works and works well. There’s little issues with the trio all handling different aspects and the art flows together. There’s also a nice build-up to the end of the issue. The surprise hits you as the issue builds. You get a sense of something coming but not exactly what. With some of what else is touched upon in the issue, there’s coming to be some waves over events.

Infinite Frontier #2 is a fun comic. It just feels like a throwback to that time that anything can happen while also building towards something. This is THE series to keep an eye on and looks to be key for the future of the DC Universe.

Plus, the resurrection of Roy Harper gives the former Teen Titan some unexpected and unpredictable new powers.
