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.

So far Superman (and other heroes as well) has benefited greatly from Rebirth. After years of mediocrity and worse we are getting some of the best Superman comics in what feels like a very very long time.

Still think the cat thing was there for a ‘shock’ moment but it is good that it was addressed quickly.

What’s a “shock” moment?

So R we supposed to forget about the Eradicator that the new52 introduced? I actually liked that origin. Maybe they will merge? Or at least be linked?
