    ON THE OTHER HAND, portraying extreme radical feminists/misandrists can be executed just as badly since it suffers from the exact same problems which are not helped by constantly repeating phrases like "there are good men" because well, duh.

    Antonio's artwork was solid although his expressions can be exaggerated. God, what a mixed bag.
    Misandrist villains aren't really new though. Hell thats been Circe's thing for a while and we saw a similar thing occur in Marvel's Angela. This really isn't at all daring

    Ivy's also often been portrayed as someone who doesn't have a very high opinion of men.

    Yeah, but it hasn't occurred with THIS LEVEL of bluntness where everything is based on the single idea of hatred of gender.

    It pretty much reminded me of when Tim Seeley included those menimist terrorists in his Steve Trevor special a few months ago which... was not great.

    Circe had an event dedicated to her were she turned every man in the world into animals because of Luthor's rejection of her. There's the aforementioned Amazons Attack and the new 52 version of the Amazons.

    And these are just modern day examples.

    Yeah, but Circe has other MOTIVATIONS beyond hatred of men like gaining ultimate power and control. These terrorists' whole motivation is killing men.

    I'm with you on this. This title has three of my favorite characters--Black Canary, Huntress and Barbara Gordon--but they and the mediocre plots are putting me to sleep. Month after month I tell myself I should just be done with this book but it's a difficult "drop" for me.
