Entitled a Confluence of Wonders, issue 4 of Earth 2 certainly lived up to its' name as the heroes who will eventually make up the New-52 JSA come together to take on a common threat.
However, the story does seem to have its problems, most notably in the back and forth between characters which does feel a little forced. The Flash/Hawkgirl dynamic just feels like they talk far more than they need to, even in the action scenes. This, in fact, beats the look of Grundy as the low point of this issue, although Grundy looking like an S&M reject doesn't really fill me with confidence.
That said, despite these problems, this book continues to impress me and certainly has meaning needing more due to the ending asking more questions than answering. Who is hawk girl and how atom know her? Why was Al Pratt found in a hand print? Is there more to his change than meets the eye? And, of course, an ongoin question in the series, where is Mr Terrific? Hopefully issue 5 will answer some of those questions while asking others.
