But when Superman learns that much of the chaos is instigated by followers of Oz – as Jor-El is known to them – he begins to acknowledge the man he calls Jor-El may be a fraud. And if he is Jor-El, he’s still a fraud.
But what happens when the Son of Steel, Jonathan, comes between the two of them? The idealistic eyes of a child may neuter Superman’s ability to prevent his “father” from rescuing the family from turmoil he himself has stoked.
As I said a few issues ago, it’s likely this story will run up to the landmark Action Comics #1,000. It moves a bit slower than I would like, but that’s an unfair assessment, as I have no idea what the next 10 issues will entail. My hope is that the creative team can remain in place for the duration of the story. I find it frustrating when artists step away mid-way through a storyline. I don’t fault them for it, I blame the editor. He should manage the workload, and provide the art staff with the resources they require.
