Every now and then I’ll go back to Armageddon 2001. People always give it crap because of the ending that had to be changed because of a leak, but they forget how interesting some of the stories in the annuals were.
My personal favorites of that crossover were the Flash Annual, where Wally has to come out of retirement to save his son; the Detective Comics Annual where Bruce has to once again become Batman to take down Talia, with one hell of an ending; and finally, the Justice League Annual where we see where our favorite JLI members are ten years from now. I picked this one up in a fifty cent bin back in 1997, and I can pinpoint the exact moment this book had me. It was the response to the line “Life is like an Oreo cookie” Read the comic and hopefully you’ll have a good laugh at it like I did.
Honestly, even with the leak, I feel DC should’ve kept the original ending and ran with it.
