Amazons took over the UK, the Atlanteans sunk a continent, that's the framework within which all four of the stories in this collection reside. The first story is a Batman story where Bruce died and Thomas lived. Nearly everyone's a different person, even the Joker (an awesome twist), although Renee Montoya seems almost the same.

In the second story the Flying Graysons, Richard and his Mom and Dad are still alive and travelling with Deadman (who's also not dead), and Dr. Fate's with them too. Unfortunately they're in Europe, right in the middle of where the Atlanteans and Amazons are going at it. This story had a really interesting ending too.

In the third story Deathstroke is a pirate looking for his daughter. He won't even let what seems like a depressed and seriously homicidal Aquaman stop him. I don't know Deathstroke as well as the other characters, but it was a touching story.

Then there was the fourth story. It totally and utterly confused me. I'm not sure if it was 'cause the only character I knew in it was Zatanna (and she was a different Zatanna as well), or if it was supposed to be a confusing story, but for whatever reason, I was confused. I also didn't like the art in this story, though I thought the art in the previous three was good.

It's a long collection, but the stories were so interesting that it felt like reading it took no time at all. A solid three stars. ( )

Batman: Knight Of Vengeance is a brilliant, unique Batman story showing what would happen if Bruce Wayne was shot down and his dad took up the Batman mantel. Deathstroke And The Curse Of The Ravager is an interesting story showing what a super villain would get up during a world war. Deadman And The Flying Graysons has some nice retro circus covers, but the story is forgettable and has very litte emotional death -- key characters die and no one stops to mourn them. Secret Seven has some beautiful art, but the story is completely confusing. ( )
