Leviathan is taking out all the super-secret organizations in the DCU: DEO, Kobra, Argus. It doesn’t matter which side of the fence they’re on, they’ve all become targets of something bigger than most. A common suspicion is that Amanda Waller knows more than she’s telling. That’s okay. For now, she’s inside the Fortress of Solitude with nowhere to go.
It’s a fascinating take on the Man of Steel, one seldom explored as Clark is less of super-hero and more of super-spy. Perhaps it’s inspired by Henry Cavill’s roles in the Man From UNCLE or Mission Impossible: Fallout. That’s okay, I don’t mind. I can think of worse ideas.
I am enjoying Epting’s work. I may have said it before, that it reminds me of Jack Abel, and as most of you know, I am a big fan of retro. But Epting doesn’t merely imitate; he brings his own tools to the task and makes it his own. It can be a challenge, but Epting makes it look easy.
