Users who pulled this comic:


  1. I found the last issue genuinely enjoyable.  I’m rather excite for this one.

  2. Didn’t care for the art in the last issue at all, but the stories pretty fucking sweet!!

  3. Yeah, I’m digging on this story too. Glad it is weekly.

  4. Seriously, for as overlong as this entire storyline was, at least they’re killing it on the finale! LOVED the General vs. General action last issue.

  5. Very much enjoying this series.  Pure superhero goodness right here!

  6. Last week’s issue ended on a HELL of a cliffhanger. Can’t wait to see what happens next.

  7. fun action movie type stuff

  8. Can’t agree more.  Read issues 1 and 2 over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised.

  9. o was great 1 and 2 were awesome, this mini has had very good ends in each issue cant wait for this one.

  10. Great weekly popcorn read. I don’t read Superman, but I love this mini-event.

  11. I found this issue very enjoyable.  Simple action with just enough story to keep me turning the page.  Exactly what I needed.

  12. This was the weakest issue of the bunch. Accelerrated action took me out of the story and there weren’t any of the interesting plot developments that the first three issues had.


  13. Loved it.  They’d been dragging the overarching Superman story out for a while and I had almost completely walked away over the last few months but I’m glad I came back for the finale.  I’ve found the whole mini-series genuinely exciting, love the pacing.

    My brain did start to question the red sun thing for a second but then I figured it’s a superhero comic and I’m having too much fun to worry about that.




    Could someone tell me how Superman and girl survived the red sun fun when none of the other Kryptonians around Mars did?

  15. They are Superman and Supergirl.

  16. My assumption was that because Superman and Supergirl have been in a yellow sun evironment for much longer than the other Kryptonians they have deeper reserves of power to draw on. That gave them the few extra minutes they needed to survive.

  17. This Cafu guy is amazing

  18. I didn’t read the Nightwing and Flamebird stuff, so could someone give me the lowdown on what their power-set is so that they could do what they did.  Thanks.

    @DamonS23-I thought that only some of the Kryptonians in space died, and not all but Supes and Kara, but I only read it once, so maybe that was incorrect. 

    I have always been a fan of the idea that Kryptonians are batteries, so I thought that turning the sun red would be like killing your alternator on your car, insofar as your battery will keep you going for a while without a problem.  But whatever way they want to write it, as long as it is consistent.

  19. @MisterJ I just would have liked a look of shock on SM and SG when the sun turned red not grabbing their throats in a choking motion. That to me implied that they were being effected by the red sun just like the rest.  Oh well.  Oh yeah and they are all dead.

  20. But weren’t they in space near Mars at the time?  No air.

  21. @DamonS23-Well, if they are all dead, I don’t get it either.  That much having been said, their survival can be explained away by the ‘battery theory’.  The other Kryptonians just didn’t have enough in their ‘batteries’ to survive like Clark and Kara.  But whatever, this is like looking for holes in a Bruckheimer movie.

  22. It looked to me as though some of the other generic Kryptonians around Mars survived. Most didn’t, but presumably the toughest ones did. So put SM and SG in the toughest Kryptonian catagory, but I suppose we already know that.

  23. Also, just because it is my favorite nit pick in a while, Mars is 12 light minutes from the sun and Earth is 8 light minutes from the sun. If Flamebird and Nightwing flew to the sun instanteously fast as soon as they saw it turn red and changed it back yellow without delay thats a minimum 8 minutes of airless non-superhuman in space-ness. In reality it looked like they didn’t go to the sun until after the red light got to Mars. If it took 5 minutes to get to the sun and change it back, which seems damn quick to me, that is 17 minutes of red sunlight vacuum sucking and it could easily have been half an hour. Now try and hold your breath for two minutes. Hah.
