man who claims to be Jor-El must convince the Man of Steel of his legitimacy,
as well as his claims that mankind is beyond redemption. But Superman has never
been inclined to believe that. He has too great a faith in the people he’s
sworn to protect. Their differences lead to inevitable conflict of “father” vs.
lot of convincing to be done here, and it appears Clark is finally convinced
that Jor-El is who he claims to be. But the readers may feel otherwise; I
certainly do. Even for a Kryptonian, his powers seem off the charts.
But to no
great surprise, the trail of madness doesn’t end with Jor-El. It seems there is
yet someone else pulling the strings. Is it the mysterious Oz, or someone else
altogether? Future issues will tell.
previous issues, this story is written/drawn by the exact same creative team.
It’s almost as if they worked on them concurrently, with no break in between.
It’s helped maintain a consistency of narrative, but of course it’s seldom
sustainable, so as the story continues, I wonder who will be at the drawing
board. If it is someone different, now seems as a good a place as any to change
up the art roster. (ESPECIALLY on the cover. This issue by Nick Bradshaw and Brad Anderson is awful).
