DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers & Review: Superman #10 & Batman #10 With Super Sons Superboy & Robin, I Am Suicide Squad & More DC Rebirth!

DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers and Review follow for Superman #10 and Batman #10!



DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers and Review follow for Superman #10 with Super Sons #1, Robin and Superboy, Prelude!

The book opens with Nobody and Goliath seemingly testing the extent of Superboy’s powers.


They find out he has freeze breath and when Superboy falls to Earth he becomes unconscious, but…


…wakes up being experimented on by Robin! Superboy may have freeze breath, but his skin isn’t as impenetrable as his dad Superman’s yet.


Batman discovers Robin has captured Superboy and wants him to free Jon Kent, but it’s too late as…


…Superman storms the Batcave!


Batmans believe Superman should teach Superboy control while Superman thinks that Batman should teach his son Damian Wayne manner. However, the disagreements are soon resolved and its time for a beverage.


Robin shows Superboy his animal farm and in his annoying Robin way goads Superboy by reminding him of a pet death earlier in the Superman series’ Rebirth run.


Superboy reacts and punches Robin; looks like doesn’t have Superman’s full strength either (yet?) otherwise Robin could be dead.


Robin is no slouch and puts on a good fight with Superboy, but…


…the Super Sons to damage to the Batcave and their fathers are none too pleased.



A pretty entertaining and fast paced issue. I enjoyed the story weaved by writers Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason who plays double duty as the book’s penciller with frequent inker Mick Gray. The Super Sons are portrayed a relate-able kids with their youthful quirks and quarks. The dynamic between Superboy and Robin is interesting and sets up next issue which seems to include a boot camp where Superman and Batman will teach the Super Sons how to work together. I give this book a 9 out of 10.

DC Comics Rebirth Spoilers and Review follow for Batman #10 with I Am Suicide Squad Part 2!

Batman attacks Bane’s island looking for Psycho Pirate who he needs to help Gotham Girl; he is swarmed by Bane’s henchmen and…


…served to Bane.


We learn that Bane is no longer hooked on his olde power performance enhancer Venom and is not as strong as before, but that doesn’t stop him from…


…dislocating Batman’s back!


Bane tosses Batman in a prison cell. Batman again offers to go easy on Bane if he turns over Psycho Pirate as he also…


…dislocates his own back, um, back!


Batman escapes his prison cell and…


…meets up with Catwoman and the Ventriloquist. This was all according to Batman’s Suicide Squad plan?


Where are the rest of his Suicide Squad team with Bronze Tiger plus Punch and Jewlee?


A slower paces Batman issue than the Superman issue, but lots of grit and drama. Tom King is a master writer and artist Mikel Janin is a top of his game. As a long-time fan of the Suicide Squad, I would have hoped for more of Batman’s Task Force X in this issue, but in this ear of decompressed storytelling this will likely all read better as part of the eventual trade paperback. I look forward to the pace picking up next issue. I give this book a 7 out of 10.
