They are out of money, out of friends, and out of Lazarus Resin. But now they will have to face their most dangerous foe yet-and it's one of their own!

Matt normally doesn't understand the characters, however I like Jason's trajectory in this issue, he tricked them, which is not surprising and is something that many forget, Jason is a strategy that turned Batman's life upside down, I train with the best, with the same teachers as Bruce and more.

We continue pretending like everyone in the DCU already knew for a long time Jon was into boys even though there wasn't even the slightest hint for 6 and a half years now. Turns out Damian Wayne also knew this. You have to be the most idiotic moron in the world to buy into this. Other than that, there really isn't much else to see here, very generic story with classic cringey Tom Taylor dialogue. more

Superman: Son of Kal-El #6

By: Tom Taylor, John Timms
Released: Jan 5, 2022

Superman has recovered from the devastating attack against him. After the life-changing events of issue #5, Jon Kent and his new ally Jay Nakamura are ready to strike back. They are on a collision course with the type of power that is used to swatting problems out of the way. But Superman is not so easily swatted!

Ageing Jon was a bad idea by a hack writer, that DC refused to undo due to ego

Merlyn - Jan 9, 2022

So it wasn't planned then but you ask me to buy that even though it wasn't planned back then, Damian already knew. Are you trying to make any sense or not?

The Red Ronin funko was pre-sold the same day. Damn, I wanted one. And you've seen the RH samurai, I stayed in panties for one of those. But it will be worth it when I get my hands.

Merlyn - Nov 2, 2021

Yeah, diversity of thought really is too much for the diversity crowd, they need to control thought or at least speech so that's a no-no for them. I'm not a huge fan of the Red Ronin thing. I think I'm just too attached to the Red Hood version, I don't know. I love a lot of Japanese stuff but I'm not sure Jason would mix up that well in that setup. I know Dexter Soy drew all this Ronin stuff and I would probably like to see a one-shot with this concept at least for his sake.
