Superman Reborn
« on: February 19, 2017, 07:09:05 AM »
I haven't anticipated a comic book this much since DC Rebirth #1.  It starts with Superman #18, coming out March 1st.  Not too much known yet.  Comicbook.com theorizes that the mystery of New 52 Superman and pre-Flashpoint Superman may point to Electric Superman, with New 52 Superman possibly being Electric Red Superman and pre-Flashpoint Superman being Electric Blue Superman.

In any case, I'm just glad that we'll see the new Superman costume with red boots and get to see a version of the Electric Red Superman costume with Superwoman.  :)  I couldn't stand Electric Superman, but the costume was very good.

We know one thing. It will be terrible.  Because Superman is terrible.

Electric Superman was terrible.
New52 Superman was terrible.
Pre-52 one-true Superman reborn is awesome.
I hope they don't screw him up with this revisited electric plot.

The costume and powers of Electric Superman were pretty good, but it just wasn't Superman.  It should have been a separate character. 

Agreed on the New 52 Superman being terrible.  He was Superdudebro, not Superman.

We'll just have to wait and see what DC has planned.

I'm just going to guess now.  Clark Kent is Superboy Prime.

Spoiler
My guess was wrong.  Turns out that the "human" Clark Kent is...  Mr. Mxyzptlk.  He also seems to recall everything, pre-and-post Flashpoint.

I finally got around to this story.
So it looks like Mxy, and Mr Oz had a helping hand in this latest rebirth merging.
They both seem to fear a certain "He" who has to be Doc Manhattan.
Now thanks to Mxyztplk, Jon has to access both red and blue energies to confront the New52 Supes and Lois who have no memory of him at all.







Well, baby Kal-El's parents definitely look different again.
I wonder what else will be different now.

The new life of Superman begins...
The more things change, the more they stay the same.






We also get the all new origin of the man of steel in this issue.
Too many pages to post here but you can see most of it at this link if you want...

There's something off about the Kents' neighbor.
And you don't wanna mess with the farmer's daughter...







Another scene had farmer Cobb speaking to a glowey-eyed Krypto about protecting Jon. And Batman discovered Cobb's cow's milk may be affecting Jon's power growth. I'm wondering if it's all an Eradicator thing or something. I can't even remember what the eradicator was in the New52 but it's possible that's changed now as well anyway.

Great issue. We got more of the new origin story of Superman and his first appearance in Metropolis as well as a trip through his life, death, resurrection, marriage, childbirth, taking time off to raise Jon, and returning to public life again. Way too much to post here but worth picking up as all these most recent issues have been.

Meanwhile elsewhere in the story, bad guys unite...




...and later...

While Supes, Bats, and the kids are off doing their own thing, Lois takes on her ever-growing suspicious neighbors...

I much prefer this Lois to the New 52 Lois.  I'm so glad the New 52 is gone.

As soon as New52 Lois outed Clark as Superman, I was done with her.

As far as plot contrivances go, that was one of the worst.
