On my Earth, it's different.

It seems mandatory to write about Infinite Crisis. As someone who never read the Crisis on Infinite Earths, I'm trying to fit the puzzle pieces together.

I did get a little choked up when Superman 2 tries to convince Batman that Earth 2 was a wonderful place- "it was full of hope and light". And that Aquaman and Mera open this issue with a fight to hold back the seas. And yea, yea, Power Girl is a major player again. Superboy tries to rope her into saving Lois by bringing back Earth 2.

My favorite page is a page of 5 horizontal panels of Wonder Woman watching the island disappear. Jimenez has great perspective angles there.

I liked those panels not for the angles, but for the shiny goddesses. Man, Athena in full armor. We haven't seen that at all Post-Crisis I think. Even for a few panels, that was awesome.
Since the Perez reboot, Athena has only recently begun feeling like Athena. Walking around in a toga with an owl on her shoulder is no way for a goddess of war. She needs to be decked out, fully armored, with Medusa's head on her breastplate. The business suit was the closest modern equivalent, but the armor is what was truly needed.
