I'm disappointed not to see Jaime Reyes, but this all but confirms my thought that he's getting a new solo series.

Dan Jurgens created the first original character after Crisis On Infinite Earths, Booster Gold.  Maybe he's doing it again, creating the first original character of the DCnu.

While I think a Off My Mind about Spider-Man hurting his loved ones is a great topic, I think this goes the wrong way about it.  Peter's spider-sense isn't him being psychic or having knowledge of the future, it's a sense.  Same way sight, hearing, and smell are a sense.  Until just recently, Peter couldn't turn off his spider sense any more than you could shut off your ears.  Arguing that Peter changes the course of fate by using his spider sense is like arguing that you change the course of fate if you don't cross the street because you see a car speeding down the road.

@Silkcuts:   By no means am I arguing that Cornell is a bad writer.  Like I said, Action Comics is just about my favorite comic on shelves right now and Soldier Zero is by no means bad, it just doesn't stand out.  I'm well aware that this was a filler arc, I wasn't looking for or expecting long term plot lines or payoffs.  I get that people disagree with my review, but I was reviewing the story based on its own merits and failings.

Come to think about it, how many clones are there really? 
 
X-23 
Superboy 
Scarlet Spider 
I think Kid Flash has a clone running around 
 
For a device that seems incredibly over used, there aren't that many clones out there really.

There's really no point of giving out scores if you never give anything less than a 4/5.

I couldn't disagree with this review more.
