    Regime Superman being the evil despot that he's been crafted to be, is a welcome sight. Better the murderer than the fop who mutters "Bruce" anytime he sees the Batman. Regime murdering the Joker Underground while they chant, "Joker! Joker!" channels the worst acts of Ultraman or the Plutonian, and it nearly works, except for the nagging issue of Harley Quinn. Harley's words, "Mistah J was a kill-crazy louse," should be followed by someone screaming, "And you were with him every step of the way!" The only reason Harley isn't with the Joker, is because he's dead. It has to be of public record, that what Harley did, if not, Green Arrow would have never spirited her off, but is Harley Quinn, as a character, so popular that she can placed into a show as a superheroine, while murdering elsewhere? Regime is rightfully called for his tyrannical actions, but Harley? The blood of the Underground is on her hands, but nobody cares or even seems to understand why.

    The idea of oppressed people meeting in the name of a maniac is reflected throughout human history, and it's actually a good stroke of writing in Injustice which, of course, cannot hope to last. Batwoman's heady words are also very much appreciated, as the Joker is the one who set Regime Superman on this path, but the blindness to Harley Quinn cannot be anything but exasperating. Harley Quinn was there for all of it. The killing of Jimmy Olsen, the abudction of Lois Lane... She assisted the Joker in every aspect of the heinous act that caused the Injustice storyline, and has not had to pay for it at all. The Batman has turned an absent conscience to Harley Quinn, and readers could care less, so long as the enjoyment is there, but you would think that having been party to the greatest crime in the series, Harley Quinn should be public enemy number one, but such is popularity... and Injustice.

Reviewed by: T.A. Ewart (aka liheibao)

    Adventures of Supergirl has gotten heavier and heavier since its opening. Readers were left with a pensive Supergirl last issue, and now we see her having to combat her inner worries as she's attacked through her dreams. These types of stories usually come later in a new series, but since Adventures of Supergirl supplements the tele-series, it's easier to think of them, these tales, as interludes between episodes. That being the case, it's a solid installment, one in which we learn that Kara has a degree of mental control, a such that she can control her dreams, which is quite impressive... though it contradicts the events of "For the Girl Who Has Everything". Perhaps a Black Mercy is a more potent adversary than whatever Supergirl contends with here, and readers will have next issue to make that determination, with me being foremost among them.

    The opening issues made this storyline seem short in comparison, even though the weight of it was far heavier. The question of secret identities for superheroes is a subject worth explaining, as they've all but been done away with. The symbolism of the inner self that the secret identity represented has been left by the wayside, if only because most writers can't be bothered to use it, or just aren't up to the task. Gates put the question in play, but evades it as much as he answers. Vril Dox is dispatched much too quickly, and with a means that was apparently produced by a technology called Plot Magic. Rabinoh and Winn finding Dox is hyper-convenient, and it leaves Supergirl as little more than a speedy blunt instrument. Not a bad issue, it needed a middle, something to bridge the gap left by it being a two-parter.

"The Coming of the Supermen" - Part 3: "Home to Krypton"

Writer: Neal Adams
Penciller: Neal Adams
Inker: Neal Adams

Reviewed by: Keith Samra

    It is evident that this issue is a chapter in the larger story that Adams has plotted. It certainly reads that way.

    The Bronze Age feel is still very evident in the series so far, which is a welcome change to those that may feel a little nostalgic for that era.

    Superman still has a bit of a jerky side to him, especially with his behavior toward the three Supermen from New Krypton. I really found it odd that he was questioning them rather violently about where they really come from, seeming to ignore the fact that they repeatedly told him that they were from New Krypton, on the other side of the sun. It isn't until the reappearance of the mysterious "Messenger," that Superman finally accepts and admits that he "knows" that they are indeed from New Krypton and also referring to them as "idiots"... Very uncharacteristic like of Superman... Then again, this Superman is rather cocky and a little arrogant… And, seeing as how this is an Elseworlds like tale, I have no problem with it. I enjoy a more confident Superman over an overly brooding and emo one.
