"How could it be so?" "It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!" "It came without packages, boxes or bags!"
Although there's like 40 more heroes there, this is the biggest picture.  But really, it's enough.

Fah who for-aze! Fah who for-aze!
Dah who dor-aze! Dah who dor-aze!
Welcome Christmas, Welcome Christmas,
Come this way! Come this way!...
Yeah, they don't really do that there, but really, it wouldn't have been any worse. From Genesis #4, "Last God Standing" Written by John Byrne, pencilled by Ron Wagner, inked by Joe Rubinstein; all of whom have done better. There's what appears to be a woman about to be raped on page 3, and forty-plus superheroes standing around useless through most of the rest of the issue. And you thought Identity/Infinite Crisis had changed the DCU...

The real gift of Genesis? That it ends. Although, it's probably the best crossover ever to use the New Gods, the Ravers, and Young Heroes in Love. Maybe. It also features Ares, whom I seem to recall stinking up the War of the Gods crossover.

And why is Shazam staring adoringly at the Martian Manhunter? Do I want to know?

Anyway, Merry Christmas, and thanks for reading. Be safe.
(And as usual, apologies to Dr. Seuss.)
