Otis Berg shows signs of real depth. This isn't the first time, of course. He and Lex have had several such moments before, but it's still amazing to me that I could find myself intrigued by what was originally a cheap pun.
I also just dig stories about parallel universes. I don't know, just always have. The notion of multiple versions of the same person meeting and interacting just intrigues me, I guess. And beings, like the Monitors, who travel from universe to universe, immediately have my interest. Who are these guys? Why are they attacking these parallel universes? And why is the Smallville universe next on their list?

Val (wouldn't it be a kick if he was from the House of El? Val-El?!) is free for the first time in what we can only imagine, and his freedom is nearly destroying him. Still, he's a Kryptonian with a certain innate goodness that seems familiar. He doesn't want to fight, but he faces his fears to step into the light, which the world desperately needs him to do. It's poetically executed and, if not for the destruction that is occurring while this moment of poesy is in motion, it would be an absolutely beautiful scene, one that has been absent from Superman comics since the onset of the New 52. Batman's limitations are a surprise unless one has perused the Earth 2 Annual, where it's detailed who he is and how he's able to take gunshots to the head. It doesn't explain, however, his tactical and deductive abilities, which is part of the larger problem with Earth 2 overall: the slippery holes in the plot, which the series originated with. Robinson had a tighter hand, but there seems to be an assumption that readers don't care if the sequence of events are accurate or sensible, so long as they're entertained.

I remember sharing a similar experience with my niece, who was a little older than this baby, when I sat her down to watch the helicopter rescue scene from "Superman: The Movie" without letting her know what it was we were watching. Her reaction brought tears to my eyes. If only I'd had a video camera handy.

Not sure why they used the Popeye theme music or what's with the Tarzan-like yelling from Supergirl, but it's a funny look back in time nonetheless.
