The Power Struggle Part 1 of 8: System Errors

After fighting nanomechs, Superman’s powers go on the blitz thanks to something weird impacting the sun and causing them to flare out of control. The team do their best to figure out a solution, but it isn’t easy.

I wanted to read this book because Superman and Bruce Wayne are old, but still in the game. When I started in it felt like I jumped into the middle of something with it starting off with a battle, but it slid into a story that, frankly, I didn’t really care about. I wouldn’t mind if it were a one issue thing, or some side thing going on while other stuff is happening, but the fact it’s the focus of the issue, it just was… rather boring. It was just a fight, diagnosing Supermans condition, then trying solution, after solution, after solution.

The art is fine. It’s nice, clean, vibrant, and animated cartoon cool. It’s just not enough.

The next issue may not make it into my hands since this one did nothing for me. I don’t even care at seeing the cliffhanger resolved. However, it did remind me that I liked the issue of Batman Beyond I had read, and I understand there is another Justice League Beyond comic, so I will look into those.

Sorry, Superman. I just don’t care.
