We get a big fight with Bizarro, and a standard comic book ending, but what really saved this issue for me was the interaction between Mon-El, Conner and Martha Kent. Both Conner and Mon-El take note of their similarities and differences, and that conversation was worth the price of admission alone. There’s an interesting twist regarding one of Mon-El’s “normal” friends, too.

Overall, I know this was an excuse to show off Mon-El’s new costume and personality, but I just don’t see why we needed it. With what I feel to be the slowest of the Super titles, Superman starring Mon-El feels like a teenager getting behind the wheel the first time: you hit the gas and you move a few feet, but you get scared and suddenly hit the breaks. Imagine that, but happening a few times in a row. That’s how I would best describe Robinson’s run on Superman.
