Forever Evil #4 leads up to some big fights that get even bigger. Left on his own, Power Ring begs for backup and gets a whole team to help him take on Captain Cold. But what Power Ring doesn’t know is that Captain Cold has teamed up with Lex Luthor, Bizarro, Black Manta and Black Adam. On top of that, Batman and Catwoman show up. And believe or not, things get even crazier from there.

But rewinding back to the beginning, Forever Evil #4 starts off with some much smaller steps. Batman shows off his bat cave to Catwoman. While there, he goes through his arsenal to see what tricks he can pull against the Syndicate. Meanwhile Lex Luthor and company stop by an appliance store to jump start Black Adam while Captain Cold builds himself a new Cold-Gun. With everyone armed up and ready, they all head off to Wayne Enterprises and a big battle royal.

Elsewhere, Ultraman is scouring the world for more kryptonite, which turns out to be his drug of choice. Unlike Superman, he needs kryptonite to recharge himself. Then there’s Power Ring who goes on to show just how big a coward he is as he pleads for backup on his next mission. All of this leads to the confrontation at the end which turns to power rings and one -upmanship and an interesting surprise.

With nice artwork and a nice story, I give Forever Evil #4 a four out of five metal bikinis. Geoff Johns squeezes in some nice dialog for the characters, some fun action and the art team brings it all together with pleasing visuals. If you like DC villains, this is a fun series to follow.
