After praising a previous issue in this story arc for its faithful portrayals of the other two of DC's big three, the portrayals fall off a little bit here, being shaped by the plot as they are. Diana's behaviour is the most inaccurately displayed:
I am not sure why she is hanging out with villains to begin with, but the character I know (and I think I know Diana pretty well) doesn't really talk like this. Batman is a little off in his portrayal as well, in that he tries to punch Clark for no real reason. The portrayals of the characters are somewhat redeemed at the end of the issue though. Again though here what makes this issue (and really seems to be either making or breaking all the issues in this arc) is the interchanges between Superman and the Father. It is not that they are not deep here, just that they are obfuscated by all the other stuff that is going on. Of course this has the goal to set up the coming action, but in comparison to other issues in this arc it makes this one seem kind of bland.
