    I wish there were more to the Tangent universe because this volume leaves a few open ends and sets a pretty big setpiece between the lines. I think the stories suffer from being shorter than in the preceding volumes. Otherwise, more engaging divergent DC stories. THE SUPERMAN - probably the most interesting story in the book, by Mark Millar. Superman as a being evolved beyond humanity - I'd like to see more of him! WONDER WOMAN - Peter David spoofs the warrior woman by introducing her as a heroin I wish there were more to the Tangent universe because this volume leaves a few open ends and sets a pretty big setpiece between the lines.

THE SUPERMAN - probably the most interesting story in the book, by Mark Millar. Superman as a being evolved beyond humanity - I'd like to see more of him! WONDER WOMAN - Peter David spoofs the warrior woman by introducing her as a heroine who's lost in philosophy. Funny! NIGHT FORCE - more covert ops from Ostrander and Duursema. Worth the read if only for the vampire Stalin. JOKER'S WILD - revisiting one of Tangent's best with a tale that answers the question of her identity. Less fun than her first appearance, bogged down by negligible villains, but worth a look. TRIALS OF THE FLASH - Tangent's sunniest is back, and she's helping her Secret Six teammates reclaim their lives. The running gag with her clumsy father is still a hoot. TALES OF THE GREEN LANTERN - which origin story is the real one? GL ain't telling, and this riff on the mysterious secret identity posits three compelling options. POWERGIRL - almost more a sequel to METAL MEN, the Chinese Powergirl never really gets to show her stuff. Definitely shortchanged by the one-and-done format of the Tangent books. JLA - the government attempts to kill the supers but only succeeds in drawing them together. Positing the JLA as this strike force is a neat idea, and I would have loved to see more about how the heroes react to this, but the book ends with a promise of "infinite possibilities," which I suppose we have to imagine.

    This is a strange sub-section of the superhero genre, namely that which concerns itself with the re-interpretation of established characters, and it is a task it takes to moderately well. In this volume it primarily introduces a revised Superman, Wonder Woman, Doom Patrol and Power Girl into a shared continuity with the rest of the Tangent Universe established so far. I'd only really recommend it you are very familiar with the base DC superhero universe, which might allow you to fill in the blanks This is a strange sub-section of the superhero genre, namely that which concerns itself with the re-interpretation of established characters, and it is a task it takes to moderately well. In this volume it primarily introduces a revised Superman, Wonder Woman, Doom Patrol and Power Girl into a shared continuity with the rest of the Tangent Universe established so far. I'd only really recommend it you are very familiar with the base DC superhero universe, which might allow you to fill in the blanks and references quicker. However the Tangent universe, as sketched in this and the preceding two volumes, is reasonable although they haven't quite thought out the implications of Superman's gift to his wife ...

    This edition collects the final issues of this great reimagining of characters in the DC pantheon. While you will not instantly recognize characters you will still feel connected to what the stories are and the mystery that surrounds this well-crafted universe. If you enjoy stories from DC like Elseworlds you will enjoy these stories.

    More fun, though the truncated page count for the stories did hurt some of them...you could tell that at least one of them was originally supposed to be double-sized.
