sgcomicguy's Action Comics #3 - World Against Superman review

A Whole Planet of Super Hot Guys

Last issue (review#2) Superman escaped from the military base to return to his apartment in Metropolis.this issue starts off with Clark reliving the last moments of Krypton in a dream...

Good:

There's a white dog/ ghost watching over you? What does that mean? A look at superman's origins has been expected for some time now. It also does a great job of showing Clark second guessing if what he is doing is really any good. Fortunately his land lady gives him a little reassurance (otherwise this would be a very short series).

I loled when Clark made that crack about pens being easier for him to list XP as if He has trouble lifting anything!

Bad:

A very Clark Kent heavy issue, but I suppose it is needed. Are both his parents (adoptive) dead now? I can't tell

Other:

I like how superman is keeping his his morals and not selling out for money. I also think Lois maybe the one tipping off Clark(just a guess)

Verdict:

This issue is mostly set-up and filler, but I liked it and it was drawn/written well (as always). I am also please that Superman is getting his first villain aside from Luther.

    (This review contains minor spoilers.)People hate aliens. This time around, the citizens of Metropolis aren't very comfortable with their new savior's other-worldly origins.We get a taste of Krypton at the beginning of the issue. The exact cause of the planet's destruction appears to have been changed; it's only hinted at and while I'm in favor of changes to the status quo, this is the first alteration Morrison's made that I find questionable.This is Clark's issue. The last two installments were...
