  1. Final Crisis

The hype of Final Crisis was huge because of the Countdown to Final Crisis series but the final crisis was confusing for some people. you need to read Superman Beyond in order to understand the plot of Final crisis otherwise you’ll just wonder from where did Superman pop up out of nowhere. It is also considered DC’s most complex event by some people. Maybe that was the reason it didn’t go well.
