The seventh installment of the Generations Saga and of the title itself finds the Infinitors still separated from each other and it begins with Power Girl trying to save Metropolis from Superman who is intent on razing it to the ground. Roy and Dann Thomas have the elder Kryptonian acting very out of character thanks to the influence of the Ultra-Humanite and it is a battle of the ages to see who is the more powerful of the two – Superman or Power Girl. The battle is violent and when it all shakes out, one might think Power Girl would stand tall and yet it is the far more experienced Superman that sends her running. Elsewhere, Lyta is back at home looking for clues as to where her mother might be when Northwind and the Silver Scarab bust in with an idea. They believe that their wayward parents will be robbing a museum where a newly unearthed statue is located and at the moment, it makes as much sense as anything, especially after Lyta discovers a further clue to that in her father’s room. All of it proves to be true as at the museum, Hawkman and Wonder Woman have busted in to gain what they want, Wonder Woman believes that the statue contains the secret to eternal life and Hawkman simply wanting the relic to satisfy his archaeological leanings. The two of them have a little tiff before Hawkman gets rid of her, only to have Fury, Northwind and Scarab show up and ruin that plan. More chaos ensues until finally, the book ends on a cliff-hanger that finds one person quite possibly beyond any help and leaving readers wanting more. Jerry Ordway does a great job on the artistic front with Mike Machlan returning to embellish those already good pencils. There is a lot of action within these pages, perhaps more so than many of the previous issues which made it flow at a far better pace and a few of them. The Ultra-Humanite does put in an appearance during the opening of the book, revealing what he has done to the various members of the JSA and Infinity Inc. with the promise of more, yet what that might be having to wait for a future issue. Altogether, this was one of the better outings of the series thus far which made for a very enjoyable read.

  1. Been long while since I read Infinity Inc, so don’t remember all that much about it, but been enjoying your reviews of the series. Think I will have to revisit this series myself at some point and check it out again.
