It felt like a bigger story was just under the surface, but never quite made it there. ( )

A pretty average comic book offering, not at all justified by the fanfare and format. The reinvention of Superman that Grant Morrison has been doing in the mainstream Action Comics series is far more interesting. ( )

Screw you J. Michael Straczynski and that cat story. Screw you and the tears you made me cry. ( )

Superman fights a villain codenamed Parasite while still trying to find a place in the world. The theme of isolation runs through both the Clark Kent and Superman moments. Superman debates what types of problems it is morally just for him to intervene and resolve. ( )

Accidentally or not, this has essentially the same cover as Irredeemable vol. 8: Hands fisted by his side, Superman/the Plutonian floats in front of a world on fire, his eyes glowing. Here, however, Clark is struggling with the implications of his power, and the moral use thereof, in a world where dictators promise to slaughter everyone they can if he crosses their borders even to help deal with natural disasters. Also there’s a power-sucking monster, and Lois Lane snooping to find out more about Clark’s mysterious rise to public prominence with his career-making interview with Superman. Satisfying, though I didn’t have a burning need to find out what was next. ( )
