Hey guys, just a tip, but if the cover to your comic promises to reveal ‘the secret’ behind Superman’s new costume, it might be a good idea to actually reveal the secret, rather than just showing the transformation and explaining nothing about it. A rather odd choice of cover blurb indeed. Other than that, this was a good comic. There’s two main strands to it, the first is Clark Kent dealing with all sorts of relationship drama with Lois, Jonathan Carroll and Lucy Lane. I quite like that Jonathan Carroll isn’t actually a shirtless McConaughey douche like he seemed in #1, but actually a good guy, adds some depth to Clark’s sadness, and also redeems Lois a bit. It seems to me like they are setting us up for a Clark/Lucy romance, which would be an interesting twist I guess, and I’m sure it would annoy a lot of hardcore marriage fans, which is always worth it. The other storyline involves a return to the Russian Submarine stuff from a few months ago, as Superman fights a generic green alien bad-ass. My main problem with this book has actually been how lame the new villains have been, why exactly isn’t Superman fighting any of his traditional foes? Do the DC higher-ups consider Toyman and Prankster and Mr Mxyzptlk to be toxic? I can’t imagine why… But seriously, those silver-age villains may be lame, but at least they aren’t painfully 90s. Hopefully this lizard-dude gets some development in the next issue. I did however like ‘Ivan’ the Russian spy, especially the mention of him being undercover in Presidential Security! The US government in the DCU really is incompetent.

Considering the dwarf in Action, might be Mr Mxyzptlk, it may just be because Morrison is still using him.
