DC Comics and Superman: Son Of Kal-El #4 Spoilers and Review follows.

Ahead Of Coming Out

…Superboy (man) Is In A Heap Of Hurt!

Jon Kent has brought his friend Jay Nakamura home to meet his grandparents.

Their home, the Kent Farmhouse, is collapsing and Jon realizes he can’t move Jay becomes he’s intangible; a post-human or meta-human in DC parlance.

Turns out the Justice League has been battling a young super-powered person who…

…Superman defends?!

They are being weaponized and are an unintentional pawn.

She was taken from Star Labs, blindfolded, and ended up where she is now.

As the Justice League departs Wally West, the current Flash, commiserates with Jon Kent knowing what it’s like to fill larger than life shoes.

Jay turns over some reporting intel he and his Truth Network has pulled together on Gamorra who is behind these post-human threats; Jon has the story reviewed by his mom Lois Lane who says its well researched, etc.

That leads to Superman confronting Gamorra’s President Bendix who…

…denies he is behind anything.

As Superman leaves his powers are super-charged and he becomes another threatening pawn for Bendix; will Superman create an international incident playing into Bendix’s master plan?

The Pulse:

Fun art telling a multi-layered story with strong characterization. The supercharging of a Superman’s powers is an old trope though. 6.5 out of 10.
