I get “the needs of the many” philosophy, but I’m a bit selfish. My many come first, so I guess I’m projecting when I say that I’m disappointed in Superman not being on-site when the Planet goes into crisis mode.
The more of this storyline I read, the more I am convinced Jor-El is not who he claims to be. His world exploded, but he got better. Yeah, right. But who he truthfully is is anybody’s guess Mon-El? J’onn J’onzz? Superboy Prime? I expect it all to be revealed in an epic storyline that crosses over multiple titles, written by Geoff Johns and drawn by every DC artist who can spare a few pages.
However, the story is moving slower than I’d like, which is typical. I grew up in the age of Wolfman/Perez’s New Teen Titans, Now THERE was some dense storytelling, which I would like to see more of these days. But until those two legends can be harnessed into another ongoing series, I’ll have to content myself with back issues.
