Shadow War: Omega

Shadow War: Omega comes to a close here with Geo-Force revealed to be the killer behind the death of Ra's al Ghul and the attempts on the lives of both Talia al Ghul and Deathstroke as vengeance for what Leviathan did to his home country of Markovia. I'd say the story ends rather than concludes as the epilogue to Geo-Force's defeat feeds right into Dark Crisis (which is actually already started before this story wraps).

Other than the "shock" of the villain revealed, and Deathstoke's death being immediately redacted thanks to a dip in the Lazarus Pit, there's not much here. Although, we do get Damian being less of a prick than usual and a nice moment between father and son (right before, you know, all of the Justice League gets killed in an event that isn't referenced here except being name-dropped in the epilogue).
