I'm sorry if somebody else already made thise observation, but does anybody else get the feeling Adam is a lot like Rip Hunter on Legends of Tomorrow in that he isn't a very good leader?

Spacey person at the end seems to think so!

Man looking at this series in retrospect it kind of suffers from trying to pull too many swerves too soon. We barely get introduced to Harry Tanner before he starts betraying the team. Same with Adam One before he's about to get offed. The first time we see the Shadow Council before we really know how they work and they're about to kill the leader.

In order for people to be affected by all this stuff they have to be invested in the characters first and that takes time.

I don't know. I'd say that's the perfect way to introduce them if the idea is they're the Horrible Bosses from Hell. :)

One thing I appreciate about Cornell's writing is that, where the tendency for most superhero writers is to do fairly basic plots designed to hang the real meat of their stories -- the dramatic beats and character moments -- off of, he goes for plots that are intricate and carefully worked out, meaty in their own right.

Here we have this story about the moon coming at the same time that there's all this business about an ancient, lost city, and meanwhile we have Apollo & Midnighter meeting and joining the team, as well as the whole thing with Tanner's secret double cross. And all of it is intertwined and plays off each other to make a big whole where all the pieces fit together; it's not just parallel subplots that don't meet.
