Comic Book Review: ‘Superman’ #6
Posted Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012 02:00 pm GMT -5 by Scott West0
When Superman first arrived in Metropolis, he was feared. The citizens of Earth did not know what to make of the alien who had abilities far beyond those of mortal men, yet claimed only to want to protect them. Even after half a decade in which Superman slowly gained the trust of those people, there are still those who holdout and fear the day that Superman will go bad and attack. Those fearful predictions were all realized last issue. Superman was attacked by alien entities and, afterwards, he began eliminating people that he deemed threats… both to himself and to his chosen home of Metropolis.
It’s nice to see how much thought and planning DC has put into tying all of the New 52 titles together into a coherent universe. With this issue, the elements of the flagship ‘Superman’ title fall in like Tetris blocks, filling the gaps in other DCU titles like ‘Action Comics’ and ‘Supergirl’. I can’t wait to see how it all comes to a head when all of these heroes come together against the villainy of Darkseid in ‘Justice League’ #6.
