Continuing the family drama, Clark and Jon share an adventure and though Jon is seemingly more childish than he is in Action Comics
the scene where Clark teaches and reassures his son is pure Superman. It’s just not a scene I can see playing out with Bruce and Damian for example. It works on a fundamental Superman level and explains his very core personality and upbringing. Jonathan and Martha might not be around but Lois and Clark are hitting the beats of their personalities perfectly.
I know the cat scene last issue divided the readership but I’m glad it was addressed quickly and was turned into a life lesson rather than a ‘shock’ moment.
