    Son of Superman Part Two last edited by Eto on 10/22/18 03:46AM View full history

    “THE SON OF SUPERMAN” Chapter Two: In #2, Superboy takes flight as he accompanies his father, the Man of Steel, on their first mission together to confront a creature more dangerous than anyone realizes. Will the duo triumph...or will they die when they face the lethal force of the Eradicator?

    In this story, Superman teaches his son how to use his powers. Later, Jon and Kathy have a talk. A new threat is coming.


    Clark takes his son to his first "mission", saving a sub from a huge one-eyed tentacle monster. Clark tells Jon to watch, listen and learn. Unfortunately, the monster attacks Jon, Clark acts fast and opens its eye. Clark tells Jon to use his heat vision precisely, but he was too reckless. Second time, Clark tells him that he can do it, he's his son. Jon focuses and blasts one more time, this time effectively. The monster leaves, therefore Clark and Jon can return home.

    Back at the farm, Jon and Kathy are sitting in a tree, discussing Jon's powers he has yet to control. Kathy reassures him that he will do fine, in fact, she feels safe being around him. The branch breaks in half, Jon falls to the ground. Cobb Branden, Kathy's grandfather brings Jon home, who's a bit injured.

    Towards the end of the story, we see a familiar face reaching the Fortress of Solitude, it's none other than the Eradicator.

    In my opinion, this issue was an improvement over the first. The previous focused so much on Jonathan Kent, that Superman felt sidelined in his own book. Here, the balance is much better.In this issue, Superman takes Jon with him on a rescue mission. Superman rescues a Coast Guard submarine from an ice trap while his son stands by to "watch and learn." But then an alien squid monster attacks the submarine and Superman needs Jon to use his heat vision to help to defeat it. The story might sound ...

    Superman #2 Review! 0

    Since the induction to the New 52 many fans have said that characters have departed from what made them special. One of the best titles from the New 52, however, was Batman and Robin. To me, that series completely changed my mind on one of the worst characters I have ever read and turned him into a character that wasn't just enjoyable, but brought to the table a lot of potential for years to come.
