As Darkseid and the hordes of Apokolips lay waste to the world, even Superman is overwhelmed—but not for long, as three heroes from the miniaturized city of Kandor emerge at full size, armed with all the vast powers of Kal-El, ready to become the new Supermen!
This battle of titans also features the machinations of Lex Luthor, plus fan favorites Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane aiding in the fight for Truth, Justice and the American Way.
Score: 6 out of 10
Superman has his hands full with additional Sons of Krypton arriving in Metropolis along with a BoomTube full of parademons led by none other than Kalibak, son of Darkseid, Ruler of Apokolips. Plus he’s taking care of a displaced orphan and his dog. A lot going on in this issue.
I love the classic Superman feel of this book. We got Superman, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Lex Luther, a menace from another world (the New Gods are always fun so I hope we get the full spectrum in future issues, not just the evil ones). The Neal Adams’ art has a classic feel to it that makes you feel like a kid in a comic store (really, aren’t we all?).
I have the same problem with most #1 issues as this one, too much set-up, not enough action! There are comics that are action packed almost from the get go. While this one has action, it is interrupted by explanation and observation. Still, I’m excited to see where this book goes.
If you love classic Superman stories, this comic is for you. I got a feeling it’ll be a fun ride that you or your kid would love! (But seriously, why is it rated T for teen? It seems as though any age could enjoy it)
