    Lex Luthor has had an incredibly difficult time of it lately, what with fighting master assassin Deathstroke, avoiding being eaten by Gorilla Grodd, and even meeting Death herself! Now he's finally back at his office in Metropolis, so he can relax a little bit – oh shoot, Lex, watch out for Vandal Savage and that axe!

    In the Jimmy Olsen co-feature, Superman's pal has to convince a bunch of bloodthirsty aliens that Earth is too boring and staid to host the universe's biggest (and most destructive) party. But how exactly is he going to do that? (Everyone, put on a bow tie!)

    The Good: The beginning was a really neat montage to set up the issue. We got to see a chunk of Vandal Svage's life and interaction with Luthor over the years. We finally get a bit more of definition of the contraints of this story arc, and a better sense of direction. Some more depth of Luthor's character. The way Luthor completely avoids the carefully planned out climax, and the way Cornell puts in the tiny clues to let you know why he knew to do that without telling you is brilliant. The Co-F...

    A prelude to the battle of DC's greatest megalomaniacs. 0

               "The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will."     Never have I thought that Lex Luthor would grab a much more wonderful moment within DC history than his complete takeover of Action Actions, and I can proudly say that Lex is one villain that surpassed all those who took the role as badguy within the year of 2010. Already six issue into Lex’s quest for power and I must say that Action Comics has ta...
