DC Comics Universe & Action Comics #1018 Spoilers & Review: That Prolonged Superman & Justice League Battle With Apex Lex Luthor & Legion Of Doom! Plus Red Cloud & Leviathan!

DC Comics Universe and Action Comics #1018 Spoilers and Review follows.

That Prolonged Superman and Justice League Battle With Apex Lex Luthor and Legion Of Doom!

Plus Red Cloud and Leviathan!

The book opens with the battle that seems like its been going on for months, but it started last month.

However, the book quickly moves to…

…the secret origin of reporter Robinson Goode and…

…her becoming the Red Cloud.

We then pivot back to the Justice League and Legion of Doom battle…

…but then move to another flashback.

Clark Kent reveals himself as Superman earlier to Fire Chief Melody Moore who he plans to endorse in the upcoming mayoral election.

At the end of that chat, we see when the Legion of Doom landed in Metropolis for that battle in the present.

It appears former Manhunter Mark Show now Leviathan has aligned himself with the Legion of Doom?! Mark Shaw is nor a full-on villain?

An ending that we knew was coming from the revealed cover to Action Comics #1019 for the last few months.

Perhaps its not an alliance that will list as per the Action Comics #1020 cover?

The Pulse:

The Superman and Justice League battle with Apex Lex Luthor and the Legion of Doom in modern day has been drawn out as the most recent issue has covered flashbacks or other things. The same goes for this issue. Plus the ending cliffhanger is anti-climatic based on DC Comics solicitation requirements. Ok issue, but no “wow” parts or surprises. Decent art too. 5.5 out of 10.
