Alura tries getting Kara a good education. Meanwhile Planetary Security run by Zod is out in full force tracking down protesters and those Zod finds unworthy. Jor-El and Nira-Ur state their case to the Science Council about Krypton's eminent doom and what may be done to help. Of course there's a lot of grumbling within the council but the head of the council feels Jor-El is the perfect person to pursue this so he steps down making Jor-El leader. On his way back home Jor-El adopts a rescue puppy named Krypto. After arriving to show Lara his new friend Zod stops by saying he has a plan to save Krypton.

3Story - 3: This book is entertaining enough but I'm getting a little bored with the story. Yes, they're may be some new insights but we all know where it's heading. Jor-El fighting with the council, Zod on his way to being one of Superman's biggest villains. And of course Krypton doing what it's meant to do. Blow up. I am interested to see if we get a bit more back story for Kara. While we know what happens perhaps we'll get a better glimpse into her childhood.

4Art - 4: The art remains the most consistent part of the series. While there were a few pages that seemed off I'm still enjoying Oeming's take on this version of Krypton.

4Cover Art - 4: I actually enjoyed this cover. While I was negative about the art last issue I think this is a better depiction of the characters.

4Variant Cover Art - 4: I'm a sucker when it comes to star gazing. Seeing the familiar S symbol in the sky was a nice touch.
