Taken to a dark future, Lois and Jimmy bear witness to the end of civilization. In a world torn apart by natural disasters, where Lex Luthor and some of the most powerful super villains rule humanity, not even Superman can save the world--especially since it's a world he created!

    Superman #657 was a better than average read. Busiek did a good job laying down the foundation for a story arc that could deliver some potentially exciting and action packed issues. I'm not all that wild with Khyber, however, I'll give Busiek a chance. I'll admit my bias against mythology and magical based villains. If you like that style of villain then you will probably enjoy Khyber much more than me. Superman #657 is still a quality title with better than average writing and artwork. Read Full Review
