Superman #12 (Least likely to bungee jump Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:52 am

More solid, traditional stuff as Superman defeats the weird lizard alien that kicked his ass last time out. It all pretty much played out like you’d expect. It turns out the Alien is not really evil, and that it’s bad actions are mostly down to humans, we’re the real monsters etc, and there’s the usual playing up of parallels between Superman and the Alien Threat. All standard stuff, but it was entertaining. The ending of the issue was a little strange though, Superman decides to enjoy himself a little more as Clark Kent and goes on a date with Lucy Lane. I’m all for the possibility of Clark dating Lucy, because it would be something new, but what with this week’s news about Superman and Wonder Woman getting together, it seems a little bit pointless, like Jurgens didn’t know what Johns was doing in Justice League. Next month’s Zero Issue is the start of this title’s 3rd creative team in only a year, will Lobdell and Rocafort do better than Perez, Merino, Jurgens and Giffen did? Let’s hope so, this book needs more to it than just Superman doing Superman-type things.

The Supes/WW thing has managed to make Clark Kent more irrelevant.

Johns' doing something behind the back of another creator? Shocking!
