    Batman-News - Terry Miles, Jr. Oct 16, 2015

    Essentially this has become just another Superman title, only having Batman sprinkled in here or there, but the addition of other characters and finding out more info on Dawn Command keeps the story fresh. We'll see where Superman's ingenuity or lack thereof leads him. There's a legitimate plot to take out Superman, so he'll need all the help he can get during his time of weakness. Clark has to rely on more than just his brawn. And for God sakes, Kent, learn how to fight! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Oct 15, 2015

    After the nonsense of the Truth story, I liked the fun approach of this issue.  Clark fighting Vandal Savage with the help of Bat-tech and some cool Bat Family members is my idea of a good time and as long as it continues, I will be reading. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Greg McElhatton Oct 16, 2015

    "Batman/Superman" #25 has some strong elements, like members of the Batman Family instead of Batman and Richards' art, but others --such as Vandal Savage -- don't work so well; it's the proverbial mixed bag. Hopefully, Pak can use Vandal Savage in a slightly more interesting manner as this storyline progresses, especially since we've already seen him depicted in a much more interesting way in the New 52. In the end, the positives and negatives balance each other out almost exactly. I wish this issue was a little stronger, but -- on the plus side -- it hasn't swung too far into the minus column, either. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Bill Heuer Oct 14, 2015

    Overall, this was a good start to the new arc but it feels weird saying that given Batman is only in a few panels (and the series is called Batman/Superman). I am excited to see the rest of the Bat-family help out Superman since Batgirl was written well in this issue and I have confidence Grayson and Red Hood will be treated the same by writer Greg Pak. It seems too much to hope for a better characterization of Gordon so I am hoping that the Bat-family can substitute for Batman here in the near future. From just the dialogue on the last page, it looks like we will get some fun interactions between the group so I'm certainly looking forward to that in the next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Levi Hunt Oct 15, 2015

    None of the Superman titles have done much to differentiate themselves in meaningful ways, other than artistically, and Cliff Richards's style is too cold and clinical to make this title noteworthy Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Oct 19, 2015

    Suffice it to say I am quite sick of this Superman, eager to snap at friends, pushing people away, and actively irritating others. He was pretty unlikable here. Read Full Review

    The most useless of the Superman books. Guest appearances are really shoehorned in. Greg Pak's Action Comics is much better.

    Things are starting to feel real convoluted with this series. "Batman" barely features, but even the little we see of Gordon this issue doesn't feel quite true to character. Clark is a little closer to the mark, though seeming strangely inexperienced and conveniently getting his hands on way too much tech between this and his other titles. We also have the inclusion of Batgirl, who, even here, is better than in her own title.
