L’Call gets ready for battle as a warning of Superman’s coming has been told. Superman indeed is on his way. But while flying there he is battling with his inner conscious of Lex Luther’s worthiness of being saved. But being Superman and all it’s not really a choice to not save someone. The fighting begins as the wage for Luthor’s life is debated. L’Call reasoning with Supes softer side tells him of Darkseid’s murder of L’Call’s family and the destroyer of his world. Although this is heart breaking it still doesn’t help Superman feel that Lex deserves to die at that particular moment. Elsewhere, Lois and fake clark (or as I shall call him flark) are getting instructions to find the whereabouts of the Geneticron building. Not to help Lex’s case, L’Call pulls out a mother box Lex has hidden away. A gift from his followers on Apokolips. Having already had the feeling of Lex’s hidden evilness Superman decides that he is in fact guilty. Is this the end for Luthor? Something I don’t notice often, but the lettering was really cool in this book. Especially when the old lady sorceress spoke. Her words gave a sense of oldness and impact. The splash page of Darkseid was bad ass. Not only did he look all powerful and threatening, but filled the page with a sense of doom. Each panel flowed beautifully into the next and took the reader to each setting seamlessly.
This had a twist of an ending. You wouldn’t have believed that Superman would convict a man on future crimes, since he is the all American good guy. I guess everyone has their breaking point. It’s hard to believe D.C will actually kill off such a big character as Lex, but hey you never know. One thing we are all wondering is who the heck is Flark? Anyways there better be some grand story arc that tells of of his origin and his purpose. Because right now he’s a very confusing static character. Overall great fun, Superman is killing it like usual. Now we just have to wait for Lex’s fate.
