Maybe it’s an exaggeration to call this issue disastrous as it’s decently written and has spectacular art. But it gets Superman and the Superman family all wrong.u
How stupid it is that Superman lets his recently resurfaced father take his son on a trip to the galaxy? Yes, the boy wants to go, which is also totally out of character for Jonathan, who has as good a relationship with mom and more

Not a fan of what Bendis is doing. I was afraid that he would end up destroying some of the things that make Superman unique and great, and it looks like, I was right. He doesn't know how to deal with Superman having a wife and child, so he finds a way to get them out of the picture, while avoiding the backlash he would have received for permanently getting rid of them.

This issue was not good. The possible reason why Jon is missing is not a good one. Jon's characterization is not a good one. Some of Clark's characterization isn't good. The possible reason why Lois is missing is not a good one. Supergirl's voice in this issue is not what I would describe as good. Flash's line? Really not good.

This series is complete garbage. Jurgens and Tomasi’s runs were special due to the family dynamic of Superman, Lois and Jon. It brought heart to those books. Bendis breaking up this family is totally out of character if you’ve been following the previous arcs. I think he doesn’’t know how to write Jon, so he got rid of him. Rogol Zaar is just a generic villain . I had Superman and A more

Wow - this was bad. The story felt disjointed and I am confused about the whole Lois/Jon missing. Why would Clark continue to go to work at the Planet and do Superman stuff with his wife/son missing?? And the reporter commenting about Clark being Lois’ ‘estranged’ husband?? That is totally out of character as the centerpiece of Tomasi and Jurgens’ runs were family and the strong bond o more

I defend this 2.5 rating and myconius is right also. Rebirth led up to 4 issues devoted to fake Rorschach, mime and marionette??? And now it’s being delayed to the point where it won’t finish until summer of 2019?? This is a colossal let down and even if Johns pulls it together in later issues I’ll probably forget about this series by then.

on a side note, i bet DC conveniently forgets ALL about Geoff Johns idea of there being 3 Jokers. (as they very well should)

Oz Effect in my opinion was not a retcon. It was part of Doomsday Clock wherein Dr Manhattan plucked Jor El before Krypton blew up. I’m not even sure if that was even Jurgens idea or part of Geoff Johns plotting. Bendis is altering the fundsmental origin of Krypton exploding. That means the whole basis of Jor El trying to convince the people of Krypton the planet is going to explode in question, so did he not know this villain was truly responsible?
