Spoiler? Hardly. It’s right there on the cover. But it would have been nice if it hadn’t been, and Lor-Zod’s identity is obscured until the final page. So it’s a spoiler DC gave away themselves.
MEANWHILE… Lois has infiltrated the nation of Logamba, where her father is scheduled to be executed. Though she seems to have ample help from the local underground, watching her back is her super-powered son Jonathan, whom she believes is safe back in Metropolis. To his credit, the boy is keeping a low profile, waiting until he’s genuinely needed before revealing his presence. In these types of stories, the kid usually rushes in too early and becomes a liability.
There have been rumors of the Watchmen characters being folded into the main DC Universe. I’d rather they didn’t, but I know I’m in the minority. Regardless, I do hope that the fast approaching Action Comics #1,000 has the opportunity to stand alone, rather than become the setting for yet another over-hyped DC event. It would be like having your 50th birthday co-opted by your distant cousin’s graduation.
