I love this series, but this issue was a little weird. I think it's awesome how little things in past issues show up again as important aspects in future issues. Case in point; seeing the characters trapped at the end that appeared in previous issues like the characters who robbed the fair in what appeared to just be a filler issue that now has more importance. As well as characters from the tw more

I don't think I've read a single issue I didn't like and I've read them all. There's never a dip in quality; never a 'filler' issue....every issue has been relevant, has moved the plot forward and always has great art. One of the best books on the shelf, in my opinion.

Scott Snyder just gets too cute with his storytelling. It seems like he has to try too hard to have some spin or surprise that alters a character's origin or makeup. Case in point; the surprise revelation at the end of who the boy was running from the bobbies in London.

Not what I was expecting. The arrival of *spoiler* came out of nowhere and even though it was cool to see how the fight scenes were done with the minute countdown I couldn't help feel it was filler as there are a lot of panels with no dialogue. I was expecting an issue showcasing Barry and Bruce's detective skills. I am sure this will be cool in the end, but this issue kind of disappointed me.

I wasn't impressed with this series, but stuck with it due to Landis stating there was a big surprise by issue 7 or 8. I''m glad I did as this issue by itself made it worth sticking around and now I am intrigued as how this will end. Incidentally, I guess the big thing that inspired Landis to write this happens next issue.

It's fine, not great. Recycling the prejudice theme for the billionth time. I like the 80's lineup of characters. I like the tension between Kitty and Colossus. Giving Rachel the new name of "Prestige" is the worst idea ever. 5 bucks for 5 minutes of reading is hard to justify. If you are going to emulate Claremont's work from the 80's, try using at least 20% of his word count.

Great issue. Great series. Tomasi and Jurgens have brought Superman back in Rebirth.

It's great reading fun Superman stories and the addition of Jon and the family dynamic adds a wholesomeness that comics are lacking nowadays. The ending has me excited for next issue. more

Reborn did a great job explaining the blue energy in past issues of Superman as well as the other Clark Kent and even what Lana was dealing with in Superwoman. It was genius how it all cane together in a way that was plausible. Question; as Mr Oz is talking in last panels it appears the very last panel focuses on a red planet. Is this a clue as to who is behind everything?
