This issue only works if can shut your brain down to read it. The overarching “story” continues to be asinine and senseless and certain events it depicts are so ridiculous it can’t be taken seriously.

generic alien continues to be a third-rate villain with motivations that cannot be kept consistent, while the turn of events regarding the encounter shown in the issue are just pure more

Not the worst issue of the run so far, but that’s saying little considering it’s been decidedly subpar from the start. Does little to generate any interest in what follows and what it does answer is done in an unsatisfactory fashion. Couple that with general nonsense bendis has to add and it’s a mediocre issue.

Unstable person is still unstable, now with added time travel woes. Jo more

I'm going to play the devil's advocate and quote Jor-El "the black hole - that grabbed US". He clearly states that both of them got caught. It's never stated that they ended up in the same place and time. It's clear to me that Jon had the misfortune of ending up on Earth 3 before Anti-monitor had his way with it and Jor-El ended up somewhere and somewhen else. It took time before he fixed his ship and figured out where his grandson is.

RBL - Apr 14, 2019

His assertion that his grandson ran away remains completely unfounded. Stating the black hole grabbed them also does not explicitly mean that both were taken into it, just by the fact that the ship they were was caught in its pull it’s already valid.

This is really bad. The whole issue and story depends on us not knowing Jor-El is bad. But he is. We've seen it. Why is it a shock to anyone? Why did Lois leave her son with this clearly evil character after one mission? Even if he wasn't evil, that's some garbage parenting. This is so dumb because it contradicts all that Rebirth Superman/Action Comics strove to do. That whole era can be described more

And not too long ago he didn’t want to keep his bad guys in the phantom zone, that’s why he let Cyborg Superman free. The whole ending seems forced.

And after quite a lot of pacing problems throughout this arc... Well, that bodes well. Jon being back doesn't get me excited for anything.
