Mild Mannered Reviews - Batman/Superman #18

Scheduled to arrive in stores: January 21, 2015

Cover date: March 2015

"Sacrifice"

Writer: Greg Pak
Penciller: Adrian Syaf
Inker: Adrian Syaf
Cover: Adrian Syaf, Jonathan Glapion, Ulises Arreola

Reviewed by: Alisa Lea Gossage

    Pak is definitely on his A-game. The emotional ups and downs of the story keep the reader engaged and moving forward. We start out somber and sad and go to anger and then frustration. Then, we have the shock value of using a tiny Kryptonian as a bullet.

    It's a totally original idea that is based off an old Superman Silver-Age story. I like the fact that Pak uses Supergirl to humanize the Kryptonians. Before we discover the story's twist, she talks about her missing Kandorian friend. Supergirl is desperate to find her and all the other Kryptonians. So, when we see them being used in such a horrible way, it really hits home to the reader.

    We still don't have the answer to 'who' or 'why'. I love the mystery. Each issue in this story arc leaves you wanting more. That's what a good story does.

January 26, 2015: Why Jude Law Turned Down Superman RolePrint

Jude Law As long-time visitors of this website will know, actor Jude Law was once at the top of director Brett Ratner's list to play the role of Superman in the never-made "Superman" movie written by J.J. Abrams (circa 2002-2003).

In a new interview with MTV.com, Jude Law explains how he tried on the costume, and why he decided not to accept the responsibility of playing the Man of Steel...

    "At the time, I really didn't want to," Law said. "I didn't want to spend the rest of my life being that guy who played Superman."

    Despite initially turning down the project, Ratner convinced Law to try on the iconic Superman costume, and for a fanboy like Law, it was an unforgettable experience.

    "I go in the bathroom, put it on and look in the mirror, and suddenly, I am Superman," Law said. "And it is an amazing costume. My chest pops up and the music comes on... That was it. I got it out of my system. I took it off, put it in the bag, and was like, 'I'm not going to do it.'"

    "I saw myself," he added. "No need for the rest of the world to see me."

"Crucible - Part Three"

Writer: K. Perkins and Mike Johnson
Penciller: Emanuela Lupacchino
Inker: Ray McCarthy
Cover: Emanuela Lupacchino

Reviewed by: James Lantz

    Shouldn't the folks in Rome be speaking Italian or at the very least be translated from Italian? Sorry, I'm being a bit too picky. Back to the review. I'm not certain what I was expecting from this issue, but I thoroughly enjoyed how some plot threads came together, especially Superboy and the pursuit of him by both Roho's soldiers and Crucible. That particular element made this chapter more interesting, and I can't help but wonder what will happen to Kara and Kon-El in the next issue. Don't wait for the hardcover or trade with this one. Pick up this and previous issue in the "Crucible" arc. You'll be glad you did.
