BS, I think you should use your new Admin powers and thread kick Coyle. He's getting in the way of our thoughtful reviews of Inaction Comics #896.

I've already played with the Admin stuff enough for the day. If I do any more, I'd probably blow up the site by accident.

Action Comics #896 by Cornell & Woods.

Paul Cornell has done the impossible. He's actually made it interesting to about Lex Luthor. After decades of being the most boring villain to the second most boring superhero in the DCU, Luthor is actually sort of interesting in his quest to obtain a power ring. The problem, and there is one, is that Cornell has too much planned in this book considering he only has 3 issues left (There's no way that issue 900 of Action Comics won't have Superman back as the main character). He's trying to resolve as much as he can and this issue loses some luster. Amanda Waller being controlled by Mister Mind. The Lois robot is under someone else's control. These things should have been given a lot more time to be incorporated into the storyline.

The art is great and enhances the plot, which is as it should be for a good artist like Woods.

Score: 8/10

Backup: Jimmy Olsen's Big Week by Spencer and Silva.

This is the true reason to read this book. Spencer is amazing in making Olsen a fun, likeable protagonist. I would read this if it were it's own comic. This should have been the main story with the Luthor storyline as the backup.

Score: 10/10.

Total for this title: 9/10
