"Atomic" part one! The Atomic Skull is dead. When Batman and Superman arrive on the scene of his explosive demise, they discover that this villain-turned-would-be hero was one of many people to be the subject of grisly-and sometimes fatal-experiments. But who is pulling the strings of these bizarre and unnecessary surgeries? Whom will they experiment on next? And what does one of Superman's oldest foes, the Ultra-Humanite, have to do with this deadly mystery?

    Clayton Henry joins up as the artist this issue. Henry has a clean and energetic style that merges the larger than life aspects of Supermans world and Batmans more grounded city life especially well. Alejandro Sanchezs colors are very strong as well. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Jun 3, 2020

    I liked this issue thanks to it feeling natural in Batman and Superman's worlds while not forcing the team-up. The book is also gorgeous to look at and is of the triple-A title tier in quality. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Jun 4, 2020

    I think the strength of this title, why it succeeds where other DC team-up titles have failed, is that it knows how to perfectly fuse the two worlds of the lead characters and take them both off-balance in a way that creates compelling new story possibilities. It also feels like it has more of an impact on their worlds than any similar title " a definite win. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 2, 2020

    Joshua Williamson has me on board this book, finally with an intriguing story filled with cool villains, a bunch of nods to current continuity, and kick-ass art by Clayton Henry.  The story does barely get moving, but I'll be checking it out next month for sure. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Jun 8, 2020

    This investigation leads one to be killed and the other to be captured by the Ultra-Humanite who is concocting a revenge scheme against Superman by utilizing an Atomic Army! Decent opening chapter even if it did result in the death of Atomic Skull. The art is slick. And, as I said, I like that this is simply an adventure the two title characters are having. It isn't (or doesn't seem to be) tied to ongoing longform plots in their titles. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Casper Rudolph Jun 2, 2020

    I hope that this series will get better, but for the time being, I recommend that you spend your hard-earned dollars on a different book. Batman/Superman #9 is a very average comic at best. Read Full Review
