  • While I know the backstory of Mon El, I haven't read many comics where he featured heavily

    • by David Finniss


      This comic picks up right where Action left off. Mon El is dying. Superman struggles to think of a solution. He has been trying to cure Mon for years and now he has less than seconds.

      Superman grabs his Legion ring, hoping that the future will have a cure, oddly enough, it doesn’t work. Apparently, something is wrong with the future. Whether this ties into an event going on in Legion or it’s an omen about bad things to come, I’m not sure, though I’m leaning towards the


      Even stranger, a mysterious bottle shows up in the fortress. Superman notes that he’s never seen it before. It has the Legion symbol, so Superman gives it the benefit of the doubt. Miraculously, it works.

      Superman returns to talk things over with Lois. A lot of stuff has been weighing on him lately and he doesn’t know what to do. As he talks about this, it’s announced that all Kryptonians except for Superman are banished. This was a plot point that came up in Supergirl. Where it leaves ...

        After some thought, Superman decides to leave Earth and live on New Krypton. He tells Lois and Martha that he has to feign giving up Earth forever but lets them know that he won’t forget them. The comic ends with him flying off. It’s a fairly effective moment and it’s well done. The teaser says that the next arc will cover a world without Superman…does anyone else have deja vu? It’s probably nothing.

        The backup has Mon talking with Martha about his

        new life on Earth. He’s glad to be out of the Phantom Zone but is overwhelmed, he can’t even think of a name for himself. In typical Martha fashion, she kindly allays his fears and comes up with a Kent name that is “no longer” in use.

        While I know the backstory of Mon El, I haven’t read many comics where he featured heavily. He seems alright. He’s one of those characters who you can’t help but like. I’m curious to see how he lives up to the Superman name.
