....i don't even see where is the problem. A mind controlled Superman, who is evidently having the upper hand, gets wounded by a blade which he clearly didn't suspect it was magical. That's fine by me. On the top of that it is even probable we'll get the round 2, and since we know how cross-overs work it's almost certain that Supes will win the second one, just to mantain the balance.
That is the thing, I don't think this is cannon for DCU but its cannon for the He-man series. so they could treat this like an Elseworld story and keep supes dead. cause next issue is entitled: FUGITIVES!
Superman vs He Man was awesome. Didnt know He Man was that powerful, might make me read his comic in traded.
First volume is out already, the second volume that starts the ongoing series is out in march, and april is the event book.
Yes I would say it was a great fight. Dexter Soy did an amazing job building up the fight.
@lvenger: yeah....the new 52 Superman like I said is a headstrong idiot who rushes headfirst into battles where he knows nothing about his opponent....him believing that it's just a normal sword and thinking that it was going to break on him is pretty understandable....he even mumbles "H-how?" when it happens...if it hadn't been for that he clearly would have won the fight...He-man's durability was helping him out but he probably wouldn't have lasted that much longer had he not gotten lucky with Superman's vulnerability to magic
The thing is there is a limit to supermans power....somewhat. And he was using it in the battle. His Heat Vision can burn up alot of the solar energy Supes stores in his body and using it too long would weaken him over time. I agree that Superman would have one the fight in terms of blows. but you stole the words right from my mouth.
In terms of story this is only issue 2. Im sure this was a ploy by skeletor to either kill he-man or force him to become a fugitive to the law enforcements of the planet. But still a great issue. mind you id have gone a whole other route with Skeletors redesign though....Blarg!
