DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers and Review follow for Super Sons #1!
Most of this book features the difference between Batman and Superman’s parenting styles with their sons Robin and Superboy.
The free teaser by DC Comics revealed an interesting moment from the present with Superboy and Robin vs. the threats of Kid Amazo over two pages.
Is it Robin and Superboy or Superboy and Robin? 😉
The next several pages show the parenting styles of Clark Kent with Jon Kent and Bruce Wayne with Damian Wayne.
Then we get to the meat of things and how these team-up.
Robin, not only leader of DC Rebirth’s Teen Titans, also takes the lead in spurring Superboy to be actually super. Robin breaks into Superboy’s room with Superman noticing it seems.
However, Superboy’s mom Lois Lane notices. but Superboy lies and says he’s alone and the noise was from his loud laptop/
Robin convinces Superboy to join him to investigate break-ins related to Lexcorp and…
…they head to Metroplis and…
…are confronted by Lex Luthor in his Superman armor. It appears that he thinks the Super Sons are his thieves!
Great interpersonal moments and solid characterization. The issue a bit bereft of action until the last few pages, but it still works. Awesome kinetic art services the story. 8.5 out of 10.
