The first major New 52 Superman crossover continues, and Jon, Dave, and our friend Charlie are back to talk about what was good, what was bad, and what made us go, “Hmmmm!” Here are the stories up for review:
Superboy 15 — “Shattered Steel!” — Superboy’s dying, and only Superman’s armor can save him, but at what cost to the clone of steel?
Supergirl 15 — “Into Kandor” — What happens when H’el sends Supergirl into the last bastion of her home civilization?
Superman 15 — “Because I’m a Scorpion” — We wanted more Luthor, and we got more Luthor!
Emails return next episode, and as our format for this period is going, all other Super-related titles released this month were reviewed last episode.
Thanks so much for listening. We do hope you enjoy the show, “we” being Jon M. Wilson from Golden Age Superman and J. David Weter of Superman Forever Radio, PADSmash!: An Incredible Hulk Podcast, Green Lantern’s Light, and Superman Forever Radio.
