Superman #0 (I was there Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Tue Oct 02, 2012 7:32 am

What at first seemed like a fairly standard story about Jor-El discovering Krypton is about to destroyed is rescued at the end by the revelation that Superman (who narrates the issue) is somehow on Krypton and watching these events. This of course raises a hell of a lot of questions, but when taken in tandem with Supergirl #0 it looks like the Superman family are going to be taking a trip across time and space to Old Krypton, which should be an exciting story. I do find it interesting that the destruction of Krypton in the new continuity didn’t just happen for environmental reasons or even for no reason like it did in the past, but that there are certain elements on the planet who are behind it. It’s good to have that kind of mystery really. The epilogue was strange though, we see the mysterious space-horn from #1 get blown again, and it looks like Lobdell is setting up a big threat to Earth in the form of ‘Oracle’, which I’m assuming is not Batgirl. Overall, this was a decent comic, I liked Rocafort’s art a lot, and it was fun to see more of Krypton and to know that Lobdell and the rest of the Super-writers have a unified take on the planet. Let’s hope that Lobdell’s run proper is as enjoyable as this was, and that Superman being on Krypton makes sense.

NuKrypton sucks. It's basic generic sci-fi. Byrne's Krypton was way better.
