Was It All So That Tom King Could Make This One Joke?

Writer Tom King’s Heroes in Crisis came to an end today and I didn’t much care for it. I’ll have my full review up with my regular reviews on Saturday, but there was one joke buried deep in Heroes in Crisis #9 that made me wonder if this whole thing existed so that Tom King could tell the one joke…

So basically, Heroes in Crisis has involved a ton of DC superheroes undergoing therapy, which has involved the heroes talking to the “camera” about their problems. These confessionals have been a major part of the story all along, offering real insight into some of DC’s most and least popular heroes and villains.

This final issue sees a whole host more superheroes do the confessional. The message being that the events of Heroes in Crisis have prompted more heroes to be willing to go to therapy, so we see a ton more confessionals. Each hero gets a single confessional panel this issue, with dozens of new superheroes getting a moment.

Including Red Tornado.

You clever girl…

Honestly, this joke almost makes the whole thing worth it. Let me know if you need the joke explained to you in the comments. I don’t want to spoil it by explaining it here in the actual blog post.
