After their first arc, the team of Dan Jurgens, Keith Giffen, and Jesus Merino bring us an interesting opening to their next arc. What transpires brings Superman a challenge he has never faced before.
The issue begins where Superman is stopping a Russian sub. He picks it up out of the water, and the issue returns to Lois. She is presented with evidence of someone being Superman by a blogger. She is skeptical, and dismisses him. Jimmy opines about her choice but she sticks to her guns. Superman starts talking to the Russian sub team as he wants to know what they are searching for so close to his Fortress of Solitude. As more Russian military arrive and at the behest of the sub’s captain, Superman returns himself home as he continues to wonder what they are doing. Next, a super-powered girl robs the Metropolis National Bank. One of the bank men tries to stop her but she knows that’s what her daddy is trying to do. As the police arrive and try to shoot her, the bullets go right through her ending up in the bank man. The blogger ponders the way he presented himself speaking to Lois, and knows he will correct himself. Although, he sees someone who he thinks is Superman. Meanwhile, Clark returns to the Daily Planet. Lois isn’t too happy he wasn’t at the airport to pick up her sister. Luckily, she gives him another shot to impress her albeit at the loss of lots of money. As Jimmy hears of the aforementioned bank robbery, he tells him to tell Perry he will be covering it. The blogger tries again. This time, he goes to Lois’ boss Mr. Edge. He decides instead they’ll run the story. Superman flies into action only to realize he cannot touch the girl. They do battle while the man who is thought to be Superman is recognized by his colleagues after the blogger broke the story to Edge. He is shocked, and Clark is too. The media notes the man has a father, and the girl he is fighting notes that as they fight.
This issue feels to be lacking a little bit. While Dan Jurgens and Keith Giffen wrote a great arc last time around, this feels to be lacking the uniqueness the last one had. While the story is good, this issue seems to be executed wrong as the issue seems to not know what direction it’s headed in. Dan Jurgens and Jesus Merino do an excellent job with the art as usual. They bring dynamism as usual to Superman, and make the story come alive. Hopefully, the next issue explains a little more of what is going on with this super powered girl.
This week, my weekly Ring of Honor TV review focuses on one and only one match. The entire show was devoted to a “Road Rage” recap of Davey Richards versus Kevin Steen for the ROH World title. This was an epic encounter and well worth watching. I highly recommend everyone check the replay when ROH adds it to their site tomorrow.
