This issue was pretty bad really, I never bought the threat of the Doomslayer and his drill, so it was just a formality that Superman and his friends would stop it. Even the death of the Eradicator didn’t come as a shock because he’s died like 3 times before this and also, with the reboot he could come back at any time. So yeah, not a good way for the first volume of Action Comics to bow out, and also probably the worst story of Paul Cornell’s career. I did like the coda at the end with Clark and Lois, it’s good that Cornell and Roberson have used these stories to basically sum up this version of Superman before the relaunch.

This issue was not a good issue to end Action Comics on.

It's just a one-liner where Lois tells Clark that after saving the world, China want to make Superman an honorary citizen.

It was a jokey reference to Action Comics #900 where Supes resigns his US citizenship.
