But what has me flummoxed since last issue is the star of the book, Superman. He used the Flash’s cosmic treadmill to journey back in time to Krypton before it’s destruction. Of course, the treadmill was left in the present, which begs the question: How will Superman get back? With Krypton’s red sun, he’ll have no super-powers, a thought which fails to occur to him until the final page of this issue.
Nevertheless, the issue is a fun read, beginning with the cover. Word balloons on the covers are seldom seen these days. It’s more like a re-hash of a Silver Age cover, which I don’t mind in the least.
The story is fun and exciting, as Booster mounts a rescue mission to prevent Superman from changing time any more than it has been. And while Booster and the Flash are both experienced time-traveller, it’s clear they have differing views on the ramifications of stepping into the past.
6/10 (points off for Superman’s cluelessness, but hopefully that will be
explained in coming issues)
