    Overall, while this issue kind of falls back into a bit of a lull, albeit a necessary one, as far as the storytelling goes, with only one major development involving Irons, the series remains a good read for Superman fans, and looks to continue to develop Mon El as its protagonist well.

    That's not to say all of Robinson's work in this issue is a success. I'm still finding it difficult to care about Guardian's role in this series, and I find myself twiddling my thumbs whenever he, his mind-reading alien friend or Codename: Assassin shows up to take up some pages. Hopefully, Robinson's knack for revitalizing stale concepts will prevail with these characters as well as it has with Mon-El, but I remain skeptical. Read Full Review

    I like Mon-El, I like the way James has been writing him, and I hope the next issue devotes more time to Mon and less time to the secondary characters. Read Full Review
