"You have any kryptonite on you?"

This is the second time that we see in this series a Kryptonian survivor having some vision/dream of an idyllic, peaceful future. I wonder where this will lead to. And if Bendis wants to give Superman and Lois a little baby girl in the future, I'm on board.
The rest of the issue shows us how Jon was enjoying Ultraman's hospitality. It wasn't bad. S more

I enjoyed his Iron Man, with Tony, with Doom and with oh soooo controversial Riri. His Avengers, Guardians or X-men I didn't reed. And like I stated before, Zaar is a crazy zealot, so I don't expect his reasoning to make sense, just like I don't expect something like that from Joker or Reverse-Flash.

Honestly the crossover would have been better served made an official tie-in to HiC because it adds some depth to an event that has had none. This issue, yeah, just a re-telling of things already known and no progression made. They expected The Question’s cameo to warrant purchasing this pretty much.

This issue is basically an outlet for Tom King to say “my version of Batman can’t be happy and still do his job, and that’s all you’ll be getting”. I mean, that’s great, also false. But since his version is the one ALL OF US get, it’s not great for anyone who disgrees.

I’ve considered every issue of his run on both Action Comics and Superman to be below average. The one I’ve considered the best was a 5/10 that I could only describe as “boring and mediocre”. I don’t find myself engaging with the story and continually facepalm at what he has characters say and do. I don’t see the “great characters” or “engaging” story others claim they read.

The Brexis analogy was wonderful. I laughed out loud at that. I wouldn't, personally, agree with Harley and Ivy's relationship - I found it to feel... inferior to the animated series, honestly. Maybe if Harl referred to Pam as "Red", I'd be more forgiving, but overall I think it was just poorly written and pointless, like the rest of the comic.

Paul Dini’s Harley & Ivy will always be the best. I long for the days of Gotham City Sirens. I think the best part about this issue was Mitch Gerads art of the two. I thought he captured them well. The dialogue was wrong of course but baby steps!

There has been no progress at all in regards to any of the characters, especially in a protagonist that keeps contradicting most of his choices. Unsurprisingly this leads to a bad book. But it’s been bad since issue #50 so it’s hardly a surprise. A villain more lackluster than the last and a love interest thet just seems to be specifically made for this arc leads me to believe she won’t stick around and just be a plot device here. Seems like the beginning of another mediocre arc.

Darkseid24 - Feb 22, 2019

Issue 50 was great& so was Scarecrow’s portrayal in 50-56. Say what you want about Ric, but Scarecrow was greatly portrayed. And same goes for Jokers Daugther. It’s the first story where she isn’t a joke. As for Bea Dicks love interests are never deep characters, but she’s ok so far. Only real problem is Ric& for me, that I personally don’t care about Dicks love life at all. So Jokers Daugther is the best part here.

From the small shot of Jimmy’s tablet you can see him working in the Jameson/Parker dynamic. The blue bombs must also be silent because I don’t buy an entire building blowing up in Metropolis and Superman not even noticing what’s happening, it isn’t Gotham after all. The Lois/Sam Lane scene was pure contrived drama for the sake of “future” stories I bet, but feels so forced it just doesn’t work. You clip show analogy was particularly apt.

I'm not too familiar with how Perry White should be written, but even if it is similar to JJJ, Bendis did a bad job here.
