He’s cool. I like his work. Something tells me he’ll get his big break soon.

I like that they seem to be going with the Superman: The Animated Series version of Corben with him being an assassin or mercenary as opposed to being a petty criminal or a reporter. It makes him seem like more of a threat if he is already deadly before he becomes a machine.
