What happened to Rags this issue? His art looked great the first two months, and now, the kid whose cat Superman saves looks like a bald sixty year old.

Wouldn't it be easier to move the girl out of the way and then slow the truck down gradually?

That would be awful. Actually, it does look a lot like a Bagley comic from this page. I think Bendis is sabotaging things by using Bagley's essence in rituals.

Yes, but I think the idea is that Superman is still young and inexperienced. So he chooses the hard way instead of the easy one.

That's the question you ask, and not, "How did that little girl suddenly transform into a middle-aged ape woman?"

We've secretly replaced DC citizens and military with ones from Marvel. Let's see if anyone notices.

Moving her out of the way without leaving her arms behind and jellifying her organs may still fall under 'difficult' for him at this stage.

Morales just can't do a monthly book. Which is okay, some great artists just need to take their time, but if you pressure them, shit like this happens. also, I'm thinking "Inker problems".

It's so foggy, the car didn't even see the little girl until it was too late, and it must have all happened in the blink of an eye, too. How many of those people are even aware he just saved the girl?

Um.... Grant, you do remember that Superman is a property of DC not Marvel, right?

It actually reminds me of that one scene in JLA/Avengers when a mob beat up the Flash.

So after saving a little girl, he goes sulk in his dark room like an emo? What, is this new Superman a fame whore who craves applause? Is that what he's after? Recognition? That's not Superman at all. He'd just shrug and fly away with a smile, happy he did his job.

There can be a huge space between a "fame whore" and being someone who doesn't like being resented by the public at large. I don't think I'm a "fame whore," but I'd still be pretty bummed out if the man on the street was throwing garbage at me.

Though it might please you to know that as of literally the very next panel, he's on his feet, doing the hard-hitting journalist routine and investigating a corrupt business.

Feels too much like Batman. Are we forgetting the great impact of that moment from Identity Crisis?:
Martha: You think Batman gives his parents this much trouble?
Clark: [pained look at Martha's innocence]

(yeah, yeah, Golden Age Supes' parents were dead too; this ain't the Golden Age, writers)

It is actually kind of...sub-Marvel isn't it? I mean, in Marvel they hate and fear their heroes so much that they create war machines to defeat them. In DC they throw a *brick* at a guy who just shrugged off a truck.

And?

This is the early days of Superman, before he's saved the world a dozen times and gained everyone's trust. It's more realistic that they treat this weird alien like an outsider.

Especially since Superman isn't exactly the nicest guy in this book. :p

Please, could you avoid using an expression like "fam whore" in a pejorative fashion against a character or person other than yourself? There are other ways to convey the meaning - "attention seeker" for example - without having the derogatory and dismissive connotation against sex workers.
