Batman/Superman #17 Preview

Written by: Greg Pak
Art by: Ardian Syaf 
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: December 16, 2014

Who is Superman’s Joker? It seems it’s the Unseen Terror, who makes the battle personal for Superman! How? By attacking all things related to the Man of Steel! Together, Batman and Superman start to track down suspects – and the first one is Lobo!

Batman/Superman has been an odd book, if you ask me.  I love the World's Finest and Greg Pak is so good, but this book has suddenly gone to the bottom of the Super Family stack.  That is as much a compliment to the other books as it is an indictment to this one, but Greg Pak needs to step up (Revolution and All In).  Hopefully, this is the arc to do it.  I am a bit confused since I always thought of Lex Luthor as Superman's Joker, but I guess I'm wrong and Greg Pak will show me the err of my ways.


  1. I think when he meant superman's joker, he meant a character who wasn't afraid of the persona, and kinda ridiculous but also badass... which kinda makes sense for lobo

    1. Also love that cover with lobo and superman coming at each other. its like a face off in the Injustice game

    2. I wonder if this ties-in with the Lobo solo story of him heading to metropolis. If not, it's a weird coincidence.
