    "This 'super-man' is nothing of the kind." - General Zod

    So this was actually an issue sort of deserving of the book's title. That is not a compliment. I mean that in a physical and moral since considering Superman Unchained was every bit SUPERMAN UNCHAINED. Superman was Unchained from physical limitations and ethical decisions. He was unchained from the things we should be afraid of Superman being unchained from. He was unchained from himself, from his character. So this Superman chooses to punch things from one end of the Earth to the other, from outer-space to the depths of the ocean, and finally to the outer core of the Earth. You know, to even things up a bit. This Superman punches Wraith straight through the moon and leaves him for dead with a presumably lethal dose of Synthetic Mineral (Wraith's version of Kryptonite) shoved down his throat. This issue was designed to showcase the underdog outsmart a superior opponent. I felt it showcased everything wrong with the "New 52 Superman". Speaking of the New 52, none of this story could possible match the timeframe from 2011 to now. Not that I can figure anyway.

    How is it possible that Aaron Kuder could create such an amazing story and then the follow-up can just ignore it all to tell a diabolical story that makes no sense?!

    Kuder cured Superboy of his 'clone disease' and ended the threat of a thousand Superboy's... and then this issue reintroduces it all again.

    Face it! DC just hates Superboy! If they didn't, this issue wouldn't exist.

    It was just... a truly diabolical offering.

"Continuity" - Part 3

Writer: Bryan Q. Miller
Penciller: Ig Guara
Inker: JP Mayer
Colorist: Cat Staggs

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Smallville, having been a drama on TV, has benefits with this kind of storytelling and it lends itself very well to the comic. It has been action, action, action, almost relentlessly building up the scale of the crisis in 'Continuity' so far, so taking time out to have character moments that really delve into emotion and the rich history of the series is a brilliant change of pace. It was also something the story needed to give it some heart. Having Clark be a leader and strategist is very enjoyable. I miss him thinking with his brains and not his fists.

"Forgotten Heroes" - Part 1

Writer: Greg Pak
Artists: Jae Lee
Cover: Jae Lee

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    I liked the way the story flowed from Clark's predicament to Bruce's to Lois'. I especially liked the fact that Pak keeps the memory-lacking Clark and Bruce in character. Despite their memory loss they don't veer off into people we would not recognize. However, Bruce seems a little less brooding. This is an appropriate adjustment to his character since he no longer has the memory of the violent death of his parents.

    Oh, and naked Superman for the win.

    An almost naked superman flying off with Catwoman.

    Bruce Wayne's reaction when he sees the Batmobile for the 'first time.'

    Did I mention naked Superman?

Mild Mannered Reviews - Injustice: Year Two - Chapter #23

Released Digitally: September 9, 2014

"Fall of the Gods"

Writer: Tom Taylor
Penciller: Bruno Redondo, Xermanico
Inker: Julien Hugonnard-Bert
Cover: Jheremy Raapack with Santi Casas & David Lopez of Ikari Studio

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    The events of last issue make this one a serious letdown, which, again, follows what happened in Year One, beat for beat. A triumphant moment for Regime Superman, followed by a lackluster issue that does its best to subtract the gains of the previous installment. Suspension of disbelief is very much necessary for fiction, and Injustice doesn't do well when it adds more challenges to that need. All ready we're dealing with a dysfunctional Justice League, Superman, Batman, etc., in addition to dysfunctional supporting players like Commissioner Gordon. The story needs to be strong enough so that readers believe the world that has been envisioned, and it doesn't track when events lack basic sense. Black Canary survived the exploding Batplane and everything with Regime, yet Regime's heat vision did her in? That can be accepted, but when she tells us that her contacts are still viable, it reeks of malarkey. It's tying off a plot thread that no longer makes sense. Canary says that everything she saw, the world saw. Did they also see her trying to kill Regime with a Kryptonite bullet? We know that Regime will find a way out or just plow right through Canary's last hope of revenge, but this makes it seem even more of a last gasp thrash of a drowning woman. The powers rings are supposed to be the most powerful weapons in the universe, yet they don't offer any protection from having one's finger pulled off, arm ripped off, of being stabbed. It seems so long as the other ring-wearer wants to kill, you, you're dead, which makes the battle between forces moot, unless you're Mogo. Lastly, why does anyone trust Sinestro? He's Sinestro!
