Superman #714 (Lightning Door Spoilers)

Grounded comes to an end, and you know what? This issue wasn’t half bad. Jamal Igle’s art was great, and whilst some readers my see the method Superman used to defeat Lisa Jennings as being cheesy, it worked, and since this is a story that’s played around with some of the less-cool parts of Superman’s history, cheesy is not a problem. In the end, this actually served as a good coda to this incarnation of Superman. It’s not quite ‘Whatever Happened To The Man Of Tomorrow?’ but what is? This issue summed up what this Superman means now, it’s up to Grant Morrison and George Perez to show us what he’ll mean for the future. Grounded has come in for a lot of shit, and most of it was deserved for the first few issues, JMS’ stories were execrable. But when Chris Roberson took over, it became well-worth reading. I mean, it ended with Superman winking to the reader! What more do you want?
