Much better to try and post without having to fit in two weeks worth of material. And it helps that Week 4 really stood out for 52.
The week's events: -Montoya's conducting surveillance on behalf of The Question. What he's looking for remains to be seen. -A space crew is searching for the missing heroes from the Crisis space battle. Apparently, all of Donna Troy's crew is missing. -Fire reveals that J'onn is gathering a rescue team for the missing heroes in space. Booster Gold has better things to do. He's got an endorsement deal to close out. Fire expresses obvious disappointment and Booster lashes out that he's now looking out for number one. -John Henry Irons is rehearsing his retirement speech that he wants to tell his niece. Unfortunately, he's hallucinating and seeing himself as Steel. And as he hallucinates, he's poisoned! -Wonder Girl's been taken in by a cult of Kryptonian worshippers, who look to resurrect Superboy. They promise to show Elongated Man how serious they are and dip him in the River Memon. When he emerges, though, everyone's gone. What ANY of this has to do with Sue Dibny has yet to be revealed. -Montoya and Question enter the warehouse, chasing a shadow. They come to a dead end, leading to this winning dialogue:
Montoya: He didn't just vanish. There's got to be a secret door or something like that. Question: A secret door? What is this, D&D? Montoya: Let's see if there's still power to these lights... (Montoya and Question fall through a secret hatch with Montoya landing on top of Question) Question: Elf needs food badly.
So maybe it's a Gauntlet line ("A" for effort, though), but that doesn't make it any less awesome. After getting up, they find a green monster in a labcoat. Just as he goes for the kill on Question, Montoya wastes him with a mysterious weapon she found. -The space crew strike a Zeta beam to Australia in an effort to bring back the missing heroes. When the smoke clears, five of the heroes emerge looking TERRIBLE. Oh, and Hawkgirl is 50-feet tall now. WHA???
THOUGHTS This series is hitting its stride. FINALLY, the Booster Gold story is starting to pick up a little steam, as we now have Booster's motivation. I'm waiting to see where they go with Steel and Elongated Man. And anything involving Montoya and Question has my undivided attention. No Black Adam this week, but that just means he'll be back next week. =)

Not quite all of 'em. Some showed up back on Earth at the end of IC. I remember Hawkman being one of 'em.
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened. - The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
After reading through the pages and pages of Dr. Mann's explanation, once we got to the punchline, I had the exact same reaction as Yorick himself: "That's a F-ing RIP-OFF!!" Actually, it was so simple as to be brilliant.
