And this is why, DC, while I understand the appeal of legacy heroes and villains, please try to use them sparingly. Otherwise, there's massive brain-bleed and weird dreams where all the Brainiacs get together and break into a chorus of "I'm My Own Grandpa." Or maybe all the Flashes/Allens/Wests/Etcs. do. But I digress.
Seeing the sentient tree-appendage things get beat on is also deeply disturbing, but I suppose that was the point. Right?
