Reviews Superman, Vol. 6

  • Chad
    Imperious Lex picks up the story that started in Darkseid War towards the end of the new 52's Justice League run. It's been a long time coming and ultimately caps Superman and Lex Luthor's relationship. It could have used another episode or two to fully flesh it out. Then there's a very emotional issue where the Justice League spends the day with some kids with serious illnesses. Having friends whose son went through the whole Make-a-Wish thing, ...

    3.5 starsWhile the colorful 'Imperious Lex' / Apokolips opener runs a little long, it was sort of worth it for the scenes of armor-clad Lois joining forces with / jumping into battle alongside the Furies. Lots of action here, and a few scenes that echo Shakespeare's "Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!" line.The latter half of the book features two stories that are more down-to-earth in nature. Superman practices his own style of the 'Make-A-...

    A bit rushed, a bit simple but still quite good.World: The art is fantastic, so far this series has had a couple of artists and I will say that the art has been able to set the hopeful tone for this series since Rebirth. The world building here is also quite good with tied all the way back to Darkseid War and Superman’s past. The pieces were all there to play with and I will never say no to a trip to Apokolips. The ties to the past and the ties...

    Basic plot: First, Apokolips kidnaps Lex Luthor because they think he is their savior, and then Superman is kidnapped by Lex to set things straight. Then a couple of other shorts show Superman showing a good time to a kids cancer ward and attempting to save a planet from destruction.The Apokolips story had some cool moments in it. Lois as a Fury was pretty damn cool. I really liked the shorts, though, as I felt they really captured the heart of S...

    Preachy, silly, and ultimately pointless.Last volume we got an American history lesson. This time we get to hang out with sick kids and find out that *gasp* a scientist can also believe in god. The only two things of note that happen is (view spoiler)[Superman becomes emperor of Apokolips, which isn't as cool as it sounds. He just says "Be good to each other like Ma and Pa Kent taught me" and then leaves (hide spoiler)]. And Lex throws a hissy fi...

    [Read as single issues]There exists a prophecy on Apokolips of the one who will replace Darkseid, killed in the event known as the Darkseid War. It is time for that prophecy to come to fruition. But when Superman, Lois, Jon, and Lex Luthor are all transported across the universe to fulfill it, the true heir apparent might not be quite so apparent after all. Plus, Clark and Jon travel to a planet dying in a way very similar to Krypton, and find th...

    A host of talents unite for this hope-infused Superman collection from the DC Rebirth era. The opening arc sees Lex Luthor abducted back to Apokolips to once again rule the desolate planet. Refusing the responsibility, Lex uses a contingency plan to try and locate Superman as backup. While the Man Steel is found, the entire Kent family finds themselves separated on the hostile alien world. Though Superman manages to end the civil war with a new d...

    In issues #33-36, written by Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason, with art by Doug Mahnke, Jaime Mendoza, Ed Benes, Jack Herbert, Travis Moore, Stephen Segovia, and Art Thibert, Suprman, Lois, Jon, and Lex Luthor are transported to Apokolips where Lex is mistaken for Darkseid's successor, but soon realizes Superman is the prophesied one. Superman meets his match in the denizens of Apokolips, something that's been missing in many of the recent iss...
  • Chris
    The main thrust of this story is about Superman and Lex Luthor on Apokolips, arguing or fighting or something. The more alien and exotic the Superman stories get, the less interested I am in them. I had a similar issue with Action Comics Volume 6, a big time travel story that I found less interesting than Lois trying to track down her Dad.So, while I enjoyed seeing Jon riding around on the back of a giant dog monster, the highlight for me was see...
  • Michael
    Tomasi and Gleason continue a fun run of Superman stories. The Super family on Apokalips was a blast (even if a single speech isn't possibly enough leadership to turn Apokalips around). No clue what's up with Darkseid or Lex's connection to the it all, but it was fun.The hospital story may have veered a little schmaltzy, but in the best sense. And James Robinson's "end of world" parable echoed Superman's origin nicely while commenting on current ...

    The Apokolips stuff was pretty shocking. If they had stuck with it for a while, it could have led somewhere. I think I missed where all of this came from, though. Did it spin out of Action Comics?
  • Daniel Butcher
    3.75 Really 2 storylines, with apparently a third wedged in the middle that we don't get printed here.I liked the Lex storyline better than the Last Days story...but really even that one reminds me of the spirit of Superman.
  • Emmanuel Nevers
    The Downfall of reformed Luthor!!! Nuff Said...also Lois, a female Fury!?
  • Diego López Ocón
    I need a break each I read one of these Superman volumes, they're fully packed with action and with a lot to take it at once. Totally worth to read.
  • Iris Nevers
    Finally Lex is caught being evil!
  • Cristhian
    Superman: you are a dick.
  • Karen
    The first four issues were good...I should have stopped there.
  • Kris Ritchie
    Just not that memorable, and the art seemed to evoke some of my least favorite aspects of 80s/90s comics: pastels.
