"I will say that I think Zack [Snyder] was heavily influenced by that," said Affleck. "I think everyone's heavily influenced by that... that's the seminal work. So, I don't think that there's any of these which have been made that haven't drawn from that book because it's so good. So, you know, I think if you're smart you steal from the best."

Not a bad ending, mind you. Just an odd one. The creators promised us something different than the original DOOMSDAY story and they delivered on that promise. While there was a lot of action in this final chapter (unless you count the aftermath issues we'll be getting in a few weeks) there was a lot of character and thought put into the story as well. I'd go so far as to say that it was a very cerebral wrap-up, which I appreciated quite a bit.
While there was a lot to like about this issue my favorite was the mental sparring between Superman and Brainiac. The different scenarios kept both Superman and me off balance and made for an engaging read. I like this sort of thing. The "what ifs," when done right, are usually entertaining and this story was a good example of that. More than anything I liked that this story emphasized how smart Superman is. Not "super" smart per se but intelligent enough to fight against Brainiac on the villain's own turf. It was a nice counterpoint to the "real" Superman, all roided out on the Doomsday Virus, tearing the ship apart.

I want to make this perfectly clear; this is totally on me and not on Charles Soule. It's not his fault that I didn't know about the connection to the Wonder Woman issue and thus didn't buy it.
At least that is what I am hoping is going on here and to be fair there were things about this issue that I liked quite a bit. Well, one thing. The interaction between present day Superman and Five Years Later Wonder Woman was very strong. This is what I have come to expect from Soule as a writer so this isn't a surprise. The only thing that kept me going here was how the Superman that seems to be from the present was helping the woman he loved even though something obviously happened in the ensuing five years.

Production for "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" on the streets of Detroit today saw an anti-Superman protest being filmed. Protestors in the scene were holding placards and banners with negative slogans about Superman, which included a Superman dummy that was set on fire.
Some of the messages on the signs included: "SuperDeath", "When invasion becomes reality, revolt becomes duty", and "Thanks for the 'help'" surrounded by flames. One sign even had the Swastika symbol within a diamond-shaped shield instead of the familiar "S".

Lane is "a superhero without any powers," popular artist Amanda Conner, who co-writes DC's "Harley Quinn" series, said.
"She's got that assumption of authority - 'Of course it's going to work out,'" Kesel noted.
"And you know that [Superman] is going to think that's really hot," Conner added.
Cecil Castellucci, writer of the Eisner Award-nominated "Odd Duck," said she'd been trying to pitch a miniseries about the hard-charging reporter for years because she's "obsessed with Lois Lane for the very reasons that you're saying," and agreed that the spitfire aspect of the character's personality is what would appeal to Clark Kent.
In current DC stories, though, it's not Lois who Superman is dating, but Wonder Woman.
Kesel called that "a step down" to some crowd laughter and applause.
