Can you imagine a more boring, derivative origin story than this? The only thing that comes close is probably Punchline's origin.

Oh, and Harley was apparently there just so that Clownhunter could try to kill her and then she could make her nonsensical speech about 'trying to be a good person' in the end.

Don't understand the idea that someone isn't allowed to like art because that's how "some people like to draw". Do you like everything you see, hear and taste because that's how some people like to do it? It's subjuctive and everybody can like or dislike whatever they want!

The story's focus was about orphans being trafficked by unscrupulous people, not kids separated from border. Don't dislike because you wrongly think it's a political commentary.

The series is supposed to be limited. Started after she got back from Jor-El's ship and didn't tell him what actually happened there, claiming they don't have normal lives so they can't pretend it. Clark even figures it out in the first issue she was lying and hiding something. But it's been one long ride to find out what she's after, the only hint is her dream of Superman bleeding.

M1sf1r3 - Jan 4, 2020

It’s a limited series and I guess slow progression is a problem in of that style of comic. Either way it doesn’t feel like much was done in each issue which is more concerning for future issues. That’s my thoughts anyway.

You mean in main continuity @myconius? Because I remember in main continuity he died long time ago in 60's smashed by a rock when saving the life of the Dynamic Duo and then soon returned as a very weird rogue named The Outsider. In Dark Knight Returns Alfred dies at the end. And recently he died in Injustice killed by Zaz for Superman order. And maybe there are another 1 or 2 times outside main continuity but right now I don't remember at all.

myconius - Dec 24, 2019

@Detective Chimp - yeah. in the main continuity. he sacrificed himself to save Brice & Dick, and was replaced by Aunt Harriet, then due to Alfred's popularity they just brought him back. i suspect somewhere down the road DC will be widdling Alfred being alive back into continuity, after they're done trying to capitalize on ALFRED R.I.P. ..not sure if i want to actually waste $4.99 on that.

This is pre-Flashpoint Superman. What he did against Superman then still stands, and to portray someone like Lois not consulting her husband before doing something that important is ridiculous when he’s trying to claim they are that close and trusting. Him losing his powers was not due to HORDR it was a wide variety of things, which you’d know if you’d actually read the titles. But you know what, if you enjoy this go ahead. I’m alright not liking subpar writing.

It's not "pre-Flashpoint Superman", that one only existed till Superman Reborn arc when a unique timeline combining some events of both New Earth and New 52 was created. Unlike you I did read the comics. Besides Sam Lane could essily march to Metropolis anyday again if he wanted to take him down. And I never said Superman lost all his powers to HORDR, all I said was that HORDR was trying to take his power or sucking his power and Lois revealed his identity.
