Secret Six, What a Crock

The current incarnation of Secret Six was one of the more intriguing things DC was doing, emphasis on was. The entire dinosaur fantasy world trip and the trip to hell already killed it in a downfall of ugly art that made everyone look like muppets and stories that were all sound, fury and set pieces, and nothing else.

But nothing compares to the idiotic wrapup. Bane’s revival was interesting enough, but the idea that everyone would decide that their destiny lay with killing Batman didn’t fit anything that had come before. But at least it meant a final showdown. And that’s exactly what it meant in the worst way possible.

The whole thing ends with the Secret Six getting ratted out in a warehouse, taking a family hostage and then having every DC superhero, including the Krypton bunch show up to take them on. Stupid enough already. The Secret Six aren’t that impressive, and Batman alone has taken on tougher teams. But Secret Six deserves go out in the same stupid over the top style that killed it after the island escape.

No the real crock is Huntress mourning their defeat and damning the heroes for beating them. Really? Are we supposed to feel bad that Superman, Batman and Green Lantern beat three killers and a few less homicidal gray area types who were holding a family hostage, because they represented the spirit of independence, or something like that?
