I'd take Jim Lee's design over this new suit, not an improvement at all IMO.

This episode was fine, this show is good. There are sometimes i'll let it go but man oh man you have two totally original characters and can't help but make them exact analogues of superman and batman or rather iron man and batman, it's cringe worthy..smh!!

I really enjoyed this issue, thrilling stuff...Poor Alfred :(

Loved the nod to the parade scene from the movie Batman. Though the way bruce solves joker's clue on that page reminded me of phoebe from friends deciphering clues to go see her father :P

Can't honestly say that I'll be finding out. I'll leave it to you lads to figure it out.

Why would I be figuring it out? I hate Lobdell's work, not gonna buy a single cent for this comic.

This, i actually pity Doomsday.

The many Ends(not necessarily deaths) of superman. That's quite a spread!

Plus i bet new 52 Supes must be thinking, "Damn, previous versions of myself had really cool costumes."

@lvenger: Normally i'd be okay with a new writer if the story had come to a complete natural conclusion. Been hearing good things about the new writer but johns literally dropped a bomb in terms of status quo changes and reveals, not even staying a while to create some continuity for these changes and is leaving the next writer to pick up the pieces, which i think sucks cause it doesn't allow for the new writer to come on full force with his own creativity and original ideas as he's putting together everything that happened before. I guess the best thing to do is just wait and see.

Super(pun intended) article. Can't wait for this. Screw the haters this is easily one of my favourite superman iterations on the market.

Haha once the haters read this volume they'll agree with you ;)

@punyparker: yes. He was actually the last writer to write Pre-New 52 Superman. He wrote the notorious Grounded story arc

He only wrote the first six or so issues.(The part which everyone liked) Then Chris Roberson took over from him.

This was SUCH A GOOD read. There was this one that almost made me cry, it had such a Death of Spider-Man feel to it..the art and the dialogue was so intense and passionate and so human. And what they did with Lex^2...WOW!!! Talk about a twist. Zod's story was really interesting too and it was a nice fresh take on the character too.

Just all around...amazing. I really hope we see a volume 4 in the future, perhaps after they do a Justice League: Earth-One. I'd hate for this to be the end of the series.


I really enjoyed this book, like really enjoyed it. I can't really explain this book other than fresh, it is the most fresh Superman story in a while. Just read through it and still processing, JMS ended the arc he started in volume 1 with a huge bang. Imo really well written and i liked the art as well, keeping in tone with the first two volumes and maybe it's just me but in some panels Ardian Syaf's pencills look like Jim Lee's which is never a bad thing.

A fresh Superman story which by my experience reading it, will definitely appeal to current generations.

There's one line, a question when he's talking to Lois towards the end where in an instant he becomes more contemporary and inspiring. In terms of all that's happening in the world today.

If anyone is reading this and you haven't picked up a superman comic before, try this. And don't worry about the number of the volume, as stated in the review, it is very accessible :)

(Such a natural progression in the Lex^2 story, Oh my God!! Will have to read this again before i go to bed)

P.S- 5/5 from me ;)

@cloudzackvincent: I think the short range was due to Ulysses absorbing most of it.

That's comforting, though it means Ulysses absorbed a $#!% ton of power.
