    Overall, there's a lack of something greater or a sense of real danger or excitement, and though this issue ends nicely with Superman's act of kindness stopping Anguish in her tracks, this particular storyline feels like a filler story. The problem is, this entire run has felt like it's been made up of filler stories. Read Full Review

    Superman may not be the flashiest series, or the most interesting book in DC's 'New 52' lineup, but it serves a greater purpose. While titles like Aquaman and Batman are creating major villains and story elements that will resonate for years, Jurgens is making sure Superman won't burn out; there will always be someone for Big Boy Blue to fight, they just might not be cosmic-level threats every month.

    When will Superman be “super” again? This latest issue left me with more questions to pose, than anything else. It's been 10 issues, almost a year, and for all the talk of modernization, Superman seems caught in the past, and not the dynamism of the Bronze Age, or the creativity of the Silver Age, or even the weight of the years directly post-Crisis. He's trapped in that bubble of time that lead to this reboot, and he can't escape with all the power in the world. Read Full Review

    The story ends with Barnes being punched out by Becker and with Lois still hammering away about what Superman does when he isn't Superman. If Superman has been around a while, you would think that this argument or question or denial would be water under the bridge. It is another example of how the time gap between books is awkward. So this was an okay story. The Lois in opposition to Edge moments and Anguish's rain-soaked goodbye stand out as the high points. The art was fine if unspectacular. And so the Dan Jurgens time on the title comes one step closer to the end. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Jun 27, 2012

    Much like the villain from the previous arc, Anguish feels obligated to detail her origin in long-winded fashion as she beats up on Supes. She goes on about some family tragedy that very well could be compelling if it weren't for her painfully straightforward delivery of the information. Her powers are a legitimate challenge for Superman, but we never see him overcome them. Instead, there's an attempt at an emotional conclusion that never had a chance of making an impact. Intertwined with all this is a case of mistaken identity that also misses the mark thanks to the dull setup. Anguish? Yeah, that's what I'm feeling all right. Read Full Review

    As a fan, I still believe that Superman isn't beyond saving. But he needs better stories to make him a more interesting character. It's evident that Jurgens cares about Superman. Above all else, he's a nice guy. But nice only goes so far, and actions speak a lot louder than words. Read Full Review
