Complete crap! Thank God it's over!

Superman and the Authority #4

By: Grant Morrison, Mikel Janin
Released: Oct 13, 2021

Is the team ready for what's next? Will the Man of Steel's new super-group fall apart before they even begin? The Ultra-Humanite has put together his own team of rogues designed to match the Authority fist for fist. This series comes to an explosive conclusion that will threaten to split the Man of Steel in half!

For the last 4 issues I have rated AC pretty high because despite seeing where it was leading to, I enjoyed it. This time, I didn't. Sure, Sampere's art continues to be great. But Superman thrown out of the League after last issue? Yeah, sure, I don't buy that, not for one second. You can tell that editorial just wanted Clark out of the way for Taylor's stupid Jon Superman miniseries and PKJ came more

Eh. This was pretty good, but I have kind of disinterest in this whole plot line. I wish we focused more on the political stuff that kept the superfamily busy this whole arc. It's just so much more interesting than Warworld. The backup was fine but I'm really sick of these backups altogether. It's just a waste of time and money.

Do you mean Williamson's Batman or the movie? Because I'm not putting a lot of faith in Williamson's Batman. Not that he's a bad writer but dude has A LOT on his plate and I don't think he can carry all of those books, he's bound to slip somewhere. Plus the setting outside of Gotham doesn't help him. I hope the best because I love Batman but I'm slightly skeptical. Also, yeah, this was a dud.

Mingthemerciless - Oct 5, 2021

No the movie. Williamson is going to introduce a new villian right away and have Batman leave Gotham to go after him after some hand wringing. I agree he got a crap sandwich from Tynion to chew on and DCs dithering with Usurper Batman.

I could end the review right here because that sentence above sums everything up perfectly.

The Man of Steel has left the Earth. The Man of Tomorrow is gone. In his place, we are left with an entitled brat who thinks he knows best and constantly looks for new ways to show he's the virtuous one.

This honestly is my least favorite Superman book on the shelf, which is a shame because I usually love Taylor, but man this series is so damn soulless. Nothing has been done in 3 issues to make Jon any different from Clark, as he does exactly what Clark would do, and no reason or motive is given on why he wants to help so much. He has been given 0 new personality traits, hobbies, or literally anyt more

As for the part where " it also doesn't mean just because someone whose politics differ from", if you were referring to me, I feel the need to add, if the story was good and not ham-fisted like this I would rate it higher, even if I'm not a fan of Tom Taylor. But this is just pandering to the left and nothing else, no nuance and is full of a lot of plain falsehoods. I CAN like comics from writers I don't like, I love Taylor's Injustice, I can' wait for the animated movie.

I mean, I know that people will not like that I say these things, as you can very well see. And I'm sure there are a lot of people who think this way but don't want to get in trouble for it so they stay silent. That's how the mob always wins, by applying enough pressure on people until they shut up and just go about their business because they don't want to put up with their crazy. I don't want to put up with their crazy either but I don't see a solution either in shutting up.

This issue is sound and fury signifying nothing. Again, it's all exposition. The handicaps Batman faces are explained, but we don't actually see how they affect his fighting. We don't see how he overcomes it.

The plan by St. Simon Says is a false flag operation. But we knew that. Batman explains it to the commissioner and she says "I need proof, McGonicle." Batman says I'll get right on more

Meh is exactly right. I get no sense of characterization or personality. Things are just happening. Also, what exactly is the crime?

Superman is not doing enough.

Sigh.

Superman is the greatest superhero in fiction. Period. And his best "power" is the fact that he knows he is not a god, that despite his awesome power he has no right to impose his will on others (something Jon seems keen on doing). The notion that he is not doing enough is at best: dumb. At worst: it's disrespect more

This comic isn't saying that Superman isn't a citizen of Earth, it's saying that because he's not from Earth, his being a leader would be incredibly contentious, because of the sort of people that are, in fact, xenophobic.

Jon Kent may or may not polarize the humanity, that is one of the ideas the book is working with. He *could* be a unifying force. The comic is showing if that's true. He has a better chance than an alien, like his dad. Which is why Jor-El warned his son not to interfere. People relate and humanize with people, not aliens. Jon, a half-human person, is less likely to cause xenophobic tensions to rise. I guess we'll see if it works out for Jon, that's the whole point.

Even if you agree with Tom Taylor's politics (and I tend to be sympathetic to much of what he's saying here), it's hard to imagine thinking this is a well written story. Taylor's metatextual commentary on gun violence is clear, but it has his characters saying and doing things that make no sense within the context of the fictional story. I am completely disappointed with this series.
