He's made his presence known. Now, at long last, the return of. . . The Prankster?!

    I don't even regret Superman being more of an element in the Prankster's formula rather than the actual chemist. What I do mind is the return of the Advertising Whore. She's a bad lay. We get a "Jimmy Olsen Must Die!" ad, followed by two pages of story, then "The Search for Ray Palmer" ad, followed by one page of story, then "The Seduction of the Innocent" ad followed by two pages of story. That's too many ads in a succession. Given that these are house ads for Countdown--what no World War III ads? There's an Amazons Attack ad--they don't need to be here. They're not paying for this book, and Countdown certainly doesn't need the hype. However, if you had to put a house ad in the book, one would have sufficed, and obviously "Jimmy Olsen Must Die!" just might make Superman fans curious. Because the Advertising Whore wouldn't take no for an answer, I'm using the fifth bullet to shoot her. Read Full Review

    With this said, those of you looking for some good action featuring big blue, you wont find it here. Those of you looking for a decent look at a lower-tier villain, for that aspect this issue might be worth a shot. Overall, there were some redeeming qualities of this book, but the Nitro G character ultimately took away from the story as a whole. Read Full Review

    Superman #660 officially lands this title on The Revolution's probation list. Busiek has three issue to show me that he has something interesting planned for this title or it gets the dreaded axe that has most recently fallen on the All New Atom and Wonder Woman. Read Full Review
