You know that secret ending in Heroes Rise where the MC and Black Magic take their Infini power to its absurdist limit and recreate the universe itself?
Its too bad we never got fleshed out moments like that made the MC truly ponder over just how OP and godlike they could potentially become and just what they could do with such power. Infinis are a truly unique class of superhumans, we're talking about someone with literally infinite power, limited by only how far they're willing to take it.
Its different from 'mainstream' supers, they really can have nothing to keep them in check except their own moral judgement (or other Infinis) - how does this power change you, change the hero landscape of the Heroes Rise setting, change your relationships with others - when you realize you can be more than just superhuman - that you can if you truly wanted to make all your pain and problems go away - that others don't control you at all - your restraint is merely a self-imposed illusion.
Now imagine a whole bunch of Infini powered metahumans popping up - gods among men, but not void of human desires either - a human with the power of a god is what potentially Infinis can be.
Therefore exploring this Infini crisis with the Original MC would have been a much more thought provoking story than pursuing some social agenda with the Hero Project (which had already been done before anyway).
If the original trilogy was about learning what it means to be a hero, making sacrifices both selfish and noble and conforming to your convictions, then a second trilogy where you play as a more mature MC (developed from their previous experiences with Prodigal, Hero Project and Mayor Victon) with a focus on realistic implications and repercussions of being an infini would have been quite nice.
An Infini trilogy... now that would have been awesome.
But who knows, maybe the next installment will be entertaining and emotional in its own right.
I agree, DC Rebirth doesn't shove political dogma down your throat, it focuses more on heroes as individuals/humans and their motivations behind what they do rather than serving as a mouthpiece for the author's agenda.
