So it looks like we’re dealing with Brainiac here. I’m a little conflicted, because this story has been very good so far, but I really don’t like Brainiac all that much, he’s one of the most over-rated villains in all of comics and I’d have preferred this story to just use Lex Luthor or Metallo as villains without bringing some dumb green alien into the mix. One thing I continue to like a lot about this book is that it lives up to it’s name and always manages to fit in a lot of action, Superman fighting the robots was brilliantly told stuff from Morales. It’s also the little touches, like Superman’s cobbled-together costume using a white T-Shirt rather than the more traditional blue, which shows how down to Earth this new Supes is. I really enjoyed the debut of the new take on Steel, and the back-up by Scholly Fisch was great, I was unsure if Fisch would be able to make the step up from kiddy comics to the real deal, but he did so with aplomb, and Brad Walker’s art is always good to see, and it’s great how he fit his own style to match Morales’. I’m not too pleased with this story being paused for 2 issues, but hopefully the Kubert fill-in will be good.
