Superman Reborn HC
Well, this could have easily been a disaster.
First, Do I read Action Comics? No, I do not. Did I have any difficulty getting my head round a plot that is clearly from there? No. The story does a good recap. It’s also made very clear that whoever the guy is, he is not Clark Kent.
Second, oh, I see - now I know who that guy at the end of the Multiplicity trade is, turns out to be the same guy who’s grabbed Tim Drake. That’s a neat and effective bit of coordination.
The use of Mxy here is interesting, it’s far more serious, with the character being a more disturbing threat by messing with memory. It’s notable too that Mxy later says he isn’t the ultimate architect of all this, which I take to be a big hint towards that being Dr Manhattan, with Doomsday Clock acquiring new significance to me due to reading this. Also, for the same reason, I’m looking forward to the Batman/Flash: Button OHC due next month too.
I just wonder how they’re going to collect this story in the OHCs they’re doing - of the two, it’d be a better fit to Action Comics than Superman.
