Spoilers and review for DC Comics Rebirth’s Batman #5 follow.
Batman is literally battling with DC Comics Rebirth’s newest “Superman” called Gotham. Batman literally throws everything at Gotham, including his own Batplane, to no avail. He needs the Justice League and he calls them in!
Gotham goes toe to toe with all members of the Justice League, culminating with his baby sister Gotham Girl coming nto the picture…
…and seemingly killing her brother to end his rampage of bloodshed!
A very fast-paced issue with an unexpected ending climax. Great art and a curious set up for Gotham Girl as Gotham City’s newest super-powered heroine in DC Comics Rebirth! Duke Thomas was woefully under-used in this issue, but while I was left wanting to see more of him, his scenes with Gotham Girl did work and set up her battle with her brother. An emotional and action-packed issue.
Spoilers and review for DC Comics Rebirth’s Superman #5 follow.
Superman, his wife Lois Lane and son Jon Kent a.k.a. Superboy continue to battle the Eradictor. He is after Jon as he wasnts to make him Kryptonian pure by eradicating his human side.
The Superman Family retreats to Batman’s moon base and Jon Kent / Superboy asked Superman why he doesn’t just bring in the Justice League. Superman’s response? This is a Kryptonian “family” matter not a League matter; a very different approach that Batman in his DC Comics Rebirth comic book.
During the course of the issue the Eradicator swallows Superman into himself! With Superman MIA, Lois Lane plays mama bear takes matters into her own hands and dons Batman’s armor!
At the same time, Superman finds a way to harness the souls and energy within the Eradicator to attempt to escape and help his family on the outside on Batman’s moon base.
Superman escapes, joining his family against the Eradicator…
…setting up next issue!
An entertaining issue with solid story and art. THIS is a great Superman family book with a focus on family or a smaller Superman team of dad, mom and son.
