Check out his review of the 13th episode in which Kara's friends must find a way to save her life when a parasitic alien attaches itself to her and traps her in a dream world where her family is alive and her home planet was never destroyed. Also, Alex, Hank and the DEO must fend off a Kryptonian attack while Kara is out of commission.
In a world where everything has been done before, Holkenborg strives to be original with his work.
"Now let's go back to Superman or Batman, Superman... Keeping that in the back of your head, it makes little or no sense to examine what somebody else had done over the last ten or twenty years," he says. "Because in fifty years from now, when we're all dead, somebody else is going to take a stab at Batman vs. Superman. Do you know what I mean? You don't want that person to say, 'Oh, let's look back and see what Hans Zimmer and Tom did there in 2016.' It's like, 'No, he's going to do his own thing that he feels fits the time or fits at the movie.' That's exactly what Hans and I did. We made the movie our own. We observed it. We came up with the best possible solution for that movie in combination with the wonderful Zack Snyder. It's really what that is."
In Superman #50, Superman is back at full power, and he takes the fight right to Vandal Savage in the epic conclusion to "Savage Dawn"! You won't want to miss Vandal's vision of Krypton - and a glimpse at dark future he might rule!
Written by Gene Luen Yang, with art by Howard Porter, Patrick Zircher and Ardian Syaf, Superman #50 will also include a special page by classic Man of Steel artist Jon Bogdanove and a new cover by John Romita Jr. and Danny Miki.
Additionally, the issue will be available in a newly added 1:100 variant cover by artist Dave Johnson that links together with Batman #50 to form one big image.
With Barry Allen making a trip through the Multiverse to reach Earth-2, we saw, amongst other DC characters, an image of Supergirl flying.
With there having been no mention of Supergirl or Superman in either "Arrow" or "The Flash", it would appear that this glimpse of Supergirl confirms that "Supergirl" takes place on a different Earth in the Multiverse.
It's unlikely that "Supergirl" is set on Earth-2. It's more likely that Kara and friends reside on some other version of Earth, one which Barry stumbles upon when he tries to return to his own Earth-1 (as they refer to it in his show).
The "Worlds Finest" crossover episode, which is noted as being episode 18, is scheduled to air on Monday, March 28 on CBS.

But Brainiac quickly discovers Earth has a "firewall" - the Justice League. When Brainiac cleverly displaces several members of the Justice League to other time periods in Earth's history, Batman, Flash and Cyborg must build and use the Cosmic Treadmill to race across time to retrieve their comrades - while members of the Legion of Super Heroes attempt to hold off Brainiac's assault. Only time will tell in this battle for the fate of the Earth and the Justice League!

Sounds like Pak misses writing the Hulk.
That was a joke. It wasn't a complaint. I loved Pak's run with the Hulk.
I enjoyed this issue. It was more like the Greg Pak ACTION COMICS I had come to know and love instead of angry, powered down Superman being angry and powered down. Superman looked genuinely happy to have his powers back despite the fact that they are killing him. There was a nobility about the character that has been missing for the last six months. Yes, he was willing to sacrifice himself before but seeing him power through despite the pain and then trying to talk the Conan kid down did my heart a lot of good.
