Superman: Earth One Vol. 3
The follow-up to the NEW YORK TIMES #1 bestselling graphic novels SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL. 1 and 2 is here! Written by J. Michael Straczynski with art by Ardian Syaf, SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE VOL. 3 follows a young Clark Kent as he continues his journey toward becoming the World's Greatest Super Hero.
Rating - 4 (out of 5): I'll get into the bad right away. Superboy, Artemis, and M'gann revealed their secrets in about 3 minutes and the entire team gave them a big hug and they completely glossed over something that these characters have been hiding for a while now. And they revealed themselves at once. I didn't care for that. Kid Flash and Robin provided some great comic relief to it. Kid Flash says, "Is there anyone else?" right before M'Gann reveals herself. And Robin tells Artemis he knew about her and his response was "I'm a detective". That was funny.
I'm just gonna talk about the ending now because the rest was less awesome compared to this. VANDAL SAVAGE CONTROLLING THE ENTIRE JUSTICE LEAGUE! I love Savage's character and am so happy they are using him in this way. He's immortal, and insanely intelligent. A worthy match for any team considering his vast knowledge and millennia of experience with humans. I'm wondering if he's in league with Luthor or the Light, or if he's running solo and is just pretending to be buddies with the other bad guys.
Red Arrow being the mole the whole time and not even knowing it. Huh! They made such a big deal outta this season. But clearly Red Arrow was being mentally manipulated by Savage somehow. I wasn't expecting it to be him. So hopefully he feels bad for being mind controlled. To the corner with you, Red Arrow!
Overall a four out of five and would have been a five were it not for the rushed reveal of Superboy, M'Gann, and Artemis.
