    We The Nerdy - Bryan Huth Feb 17, 2014

    It was enjoyable to see the four work together in a “Ultimate Alliance” type formation. Jon and Schiz's quest to free the other mutants could be the thing that this series needs to turn its' luck around, but only time will tell. Guinaldo and Irwin's artwork stays consistent through this latest installment and only time will tell howSuperboy can pull itself out of this rut. WithTeen Titans ending this April, the writers need to find someway to keep Jon in the 31st century, or bring back Connor. Read Full Review

    This issue has me torn because I still don't like Jon Lane Kent as Superboy, but it seems that we might be moving to a pretty epic story.  Even with my dislike of the central character, I am a big fan of epic stories, and feel that maybe I could grow to like him, well tolerate him.  I don't ever see this character becoming a "good guy", and don't know where he'll fit into the present day DC Universe.  With all that this issue suffers from reiterating facts from the last issue, even spending time giving us a flashback, and is still just a set up issue.  Hopefully next month we'll finally see where we're heading.

    Wolfman clearly wants to have some connectivity to the Legion of Superheroes, hence the story's future focus, as well as its three freed heroes, but the addition of all the extra stuff clutters the comic, and what happens is that Superboy becomes one more terrible issue for a series that has failed to find its footing, or solidify itself as a must read of the new 52.
