WTF was DC thinking with this one?
I'm seeing glowing reviews for this comic and simply don't get it.Writer Gre Pak’s Batman/Superman #1 is a confusing tale that doesn't seem to fit anywhere in DC’s current New 52 storyline. It seems DC is already reconning New 52 events as this comic give us the first meeting between Batman and Superman (which New 52 already took place in Justice League).
Don't get me wrong, the art is pretty and I like how Greg Pak gives us both Superman and Batman's opposing views on the same events. However, the logic of the issue makes no sense! The scene between Clark and Bruce is unnecessary, and poorly thought-out (what is Bruce Wayne doing in this scene, exactly?). The first battle between Batman and Superman works better... until all the sudden they are fighting in Smallville and suddenly know each other (Batman has Kryptonite, knows Superman's new costume, appears to be friends, etc.)??? The more I re-read this the less sense it seemed to make (which when you think about it is freakin' amazing as it makes no sense the first time)!
