Like Johns and Winick, Rucka was also involved in writing CTIC. While he also keeps the tone of Johns version of the character he adds something that's been severally lacking: humor. Although there were some chuckle worthy moments it didn't hide the lack of depth the character had since the new direction. Max still believed he alone knew how the shape the world into a better place and destroyed anyone that got in his way. Another disturbing add on was the misogynistic comments Max would make towards Wonder Woman. Whether telling her that she looked good on her knees during the Sacrifice storyline or repeatedly calling her "baby" during his Blackest Night appearance this Max seemed compelled to make innuendo whenever they met.
(And yes, I hate that outfit WW is wearing.)
