No bellyshirt for Supes? Disappointing.

Joking! Though I was digging his tee-shirt and jeans look.

Loved the "guns are for sissies" line--really just sums up that young, brash yet heroic persona Superman's taken in the New 52 and especially this story.

That and just about everything in this issue was perfect, if not at least really, really solid. :D

From: [personal profile] darkknightjrk's certainly not his most PC hour, but my reading of it is that, again, this is a young early-20s Superman, who still has room to grow and mature. Like, if this was the modern Superman five years later, it would definitely feel off.

Judging by the general's rather grumpy reaction, I took that as a bit of a dig at the general's own attitudes towards 'sissies' more than anything else.

Some terrific moments here, but somehow, the pulling off of the t-shirt lingers... can't think why! :)

So "the Collector" is Brainiac's new "official" name? I wonder how long it will take before somebody calls him Brainiac, and has it stick in-universe.

Actually, it refers to itself by different names, based on what other planets and cultures have named it:

-"On Yod-Colu, we began as C.O.M.P.U.T.O." (a reference to Brainiac 5 and The Legion of of Superheroes)
-"On Noma, they called us Pnumoenoid."
-"On Bryak: Mind 2"
-On Krypton - where you were born - we were Brainiac 1.0"

So in other places, his name sounds like some singular intelligence, but on Earth it sounds like a distributed one.

To be fair, we don't know anything about what COMPUTO, Pneumenoid, or Mind2 were like, and what little we've seen of Brainiac suggested it was a worldwide network that everything was connected to. Ours is the only one with 'net' in its name (although, again, to be fair, we have no idea what COMPUTO stands for, nor what Pneumenoid means in Noman), but it's not unlikely that the others were extensive networds, as well, it's just the Coluans, Nomans, Bryak, and Kryptonians were less prosaic in naming their networks than we were (or not, potentially - again, no idea what COMPUTO stands for).

Also, a quick Google search shows that Bryak was apparently the *original* name given to Brainiac's homeworld way back when.

I just realized that the people in those shrunken cities probably are seeing a massively-scaled up view of Superman undressing.

And the clicking of a million cell phone cameras echoed through Metropolis!

Also getting a kinda GLADOS-vibe from Brainiac. Must be the testing FOR SCIENCE!

This issue was SO good.

Clark razzing Gen. Lane and being a badass to Brainiac... Luthor's slow realization he's been had. ('Have I completely missed something here?' is my favourite line of the issue.) Rags FINALLY getting his feet under himself, artwise (still don't like how he draws Jimmy, but everyone else looks good).

It's at least given a marginally more valid explanation than in some stories thanks to Brainiac.

The old Steel from the 52 series was so much more awsome that the new one that makes me sad. He was based in the legendary Jhon Irons, something that people have forgot EVEN IF THEY HAVE THE SAME NAME, also without the Death of Superman the existence of Steel has no real meaning, How can you top the REAL origin of Steel?

Everything else looks fine, is just that I really liked Steel and now I dont.

The John Henry Irons thing was always an odd fit. The whole John Henry legend is *all* about technological progress and machinery being inferior to good ol' human gumption. Why associate a tech-based hero with that?

When Christopher Priest wrote the STEEL solo series, he tried his best to never mention the character's middle name for this very reason. He was always "John Irons" or "Dr. Irons."

I always seen Jhon Henry as the Afroamerican hero by exelence, and he was the only supermen that was simply human. Also he was a cool black hero in the tradition of Black Lightining (People still think that name is "racist" but of course they dont remember the Black Panther Party, It wasnt the Panther Party but the BLACK panther party).

But yeah I see what Priest did there, even if the Hamer and the named screamed the resemblance Irons always was more like Tony Stark. And the age of "black heroes" had passed away in the 70 and probably didnt want his character be so involved in the tradition of a tipical afroamerican symbol like Jhon Henry.

This is the only Steel story I've read that actually referenced the John Henry story outside of his name, what with calling himself a Steel Driving Man, while throwing down with a machine, so....

I like the shift between determined/angry Clark and last page reveal Clark.

"Oh, I'm gonna make you pay... Show you what these people have taught me about a good ol' fashioned beat down, as my Pa used to- AAHH, GOD! WHAT IS THAT!? SCARY!"
