    The mystery of Norah Stone and how she can affect the Supers' powers has been fascinating for a while now, but this issue's big reveal calls back to one of Johnson's earliest DC bookswith a dangling plot thread that I hadn't ever expected to see again. Read Full Review

    Two out of three stories isn't bad especially given their quality. It'd be nicer for the main story to get more pages and cut the backup, supporting stories to just one. Read Full Review
