Henry Bendix's plans are now clear. Gamorra's president won't stop until he has total control. He's now sold his strategy to other dangerous regimes. Only Superman and his allies stand in the way of Bendix's dark vision for the world...a world where superheroes are put in their place, discredited, and even destroyed. A world where heroes are replaced by agents of those ruthless enough to have seized power. The Rising has begun!

    If you're looking for hope, you won't find it in a better place thanSuperman: Son of Kal-El #10. The story progresses nicely in this issue, developing Jon as a whole person and blending in real-world dangers like fake news. Superman: Son of Kal-El is unexpectedly beautiful, poignant, and meaningful. Read Full Review

    Tom Taylor and Cian Tormey deliver another great issue with Superman: Son of Kal-El #10. Jon Kent's coming out to his mother was handled perfectly. Tom Taylor is clearly laying the groundwork for a monumental story, and I look forward to seeing the payoff. Read Full Review

    Maybe this time I'm right! So this issue sort of went by quickly. This was sort of world-building, letting us see the world consequences of Jon's actions and how he'll need to repair things. But it was the Lois scenes that worked the most for me.  Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Apr 20, 2022

    Superman: Son Of Kal-El #10 is a fun issue. Taylor fits in some great Luthor and Lois moments and handles the coming-out scene well. The action in the chapter could be better, but it does make sense for the story. Its just getting a little stagnant that Jon is so pacifistic in this book. Superman isnt just about the big fights, but it would be nice if there was more action. Tormey and Blee supply some excellent art, capturing the emotion of the events therein as well as selling the big moments. All in all, another fine issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Eric Shea Apr 12, 2022

    This issue of Superman: Son of Kal-El continues to be enjoyable for the most part but beyond a few bits in this book it doesn't really feel like we're doing anything new here and this title is just meandering around, waiting for something to happen and I'm not sure what that something is since The Rising aspect to this story still feels like it's a bit of a mystery to what it actually is. This issue looks great though and it feels like every other issue we've gotten previous, but I will say that I'm intrigued by its ending. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Apr 16, 2022

    The writing, art and most of the character moments are really strong in this comic, but I feel like there are some story shortcuts that are being taken that I just can't wrap my head around. And it's making for a weaker comic. Read Full Review
