I really liked this one too. it was so... grounded and real, and then you have this flying brick out of nowhere causing massive destruction, and you know you're in the DCU, and kinda seeing these supers through the regular guys eyes. Pretty interesting, I thought.
edit - Another fun aspect of this the whole 'who is it??' question relating to the supers. It's definitely a pair of flying bricks, one streak is red, has no cape, and is definitely male. The other is purple, maybe blue, is of indeterminate gender and we can't tell about a cape, either. The red one starts things off by smashing through buildings and smacking into the ground hard enough to cause an explosion and fire.
So. Red costume could fit Superman or Captain Marvel. the problem is both have capes, and typically don't engage in methods as violent as smashing into the ground hard enough to mimic a bomb going off. Also, the purple streak reacted to the destruction, it says to me the purple streak is the 'good' guy.
The MO of smashing into things is pretty much Apollo's signature move
, and he has done the 'smash into the ground hard enough to cause an explosion
' thing before while on The Authority. But his costume is yellow and white. He traditionally leaves a bright white streak of light in his wake when moving fast. On the other hand, he has no cape, and technically doesn't have a costume yet. He may be wearing a red shirt. He It also fits his last appearance in Stormwatch, along with Midnighter, the two of them were implied to be running off together at the end of Stormwatch to engage in some spectacular ass-kicking... (d'awww... <3 I love them so much) with Martian Manhunter hot on their heels.
Purple streak could be Bizarro, which could fit with Superman, Black Adam which would fit with Captain Marvel, or Martian Manhunter, which would fit with Apollo. Could also be Superman, the red and blue merging into a purple.
MO wise and plot wise, Apollo and Martian Manhunter (or maybe Superman. Holy shit, how awesome would that be?) fits best, imo. but the colour of the red streak is problematic.
