In the end, Lois and Jon continue to fight against the Eradicator's purging, but even with the Hell Bat Suit and Jon's latent powers it seems that the foe will be two much for the mother and son.......... So it's a good thing our Man of Steel got all the ghosts of Krypton on his trolley.......which means he sucked up all the spirits inside of Eradicator, leaving our villain weakened to the point that Superman could creepily as hell crawl out of his mouth....... and with the power of Krypton behind him, our hero will take on the Eradicator one more time to save his family........ The real question is...... What the hell happened to Krypto?!
That's it for this issue of Superman and even though I enjoyed this issue more than the previous, this story arc is getting a bit repetitive with Eradicator trying to suck on Jon and Superman giving him the business. Yeah, we do get some new developments with Superman getting taken out of the fight in the middle of the book and Lois and Jon having to fend for themselves........ but it was really short-lived and seemed like the only reason we had this issue was to throw some fan service to everyone who read the Batman and Robin series, by adding in the Hell Bat Suit......... Now don't get me wrong, it was cool as hell, but that's all we really had here besides for us all finding out that Batman has way to much time on his hands because having a Batcave on the moon just seems like he's gone a bit too far off the reservation................ Can I say that? Anyway, Batman's nuts, Superman's Whoopi Goldberg and he's going to dance with Demi Moore and it's all going down on the moon. With all that aside though, let's get serious for a minute. This issue of Superman is one of the best looking books I've seen in this series....... and I know that's not much of a compliment with this only being the fifth issue, but it looked amazing and I hope that it continues to look this good.
Bits and Pieces:
This is a pretty standard story from what we've been getting of this Eradicator dilemma....... even the craziness, but with some awesome fan service calling back to the Batman and Robin series and some amazing art all the way through, this issue continues to please and makes us interested in what's to come........ It's just that we gotta get away from some of the nonsense and start finding out what happened to our Super Dog.
