It’s Superman Day… featuring the only strip that survives The Crash unhindered!  Hooray?

Superman swoops back in from space just in time to stop his buddy Bob Galt from eating the butt-end of a Consortium rifle.  He tells the baddies to beat it… and, well… they do.  They just leave.

Superman tries to convince the Fellowship to quit worshiping him, before going to take off.  Before he can get off the ground, however, he is stopped by a very familiar voice!  A voice that claims to be both God and the Devil.  The voice… of Darkseid!

Well, it took us thirty-six weeks, and seventy-two pages… but we now finally know what we’re up against.  And well, that’s it.  All this was was a reveal.  It’s a doozy of a reveal, don’t get me wrong… but, there really isn’t all that much more to say about it.  It’s Darkseid.  Cool?

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before… hopefully, now that we’re getting some answers… something might finally happen in this strip!  Just like our Man of Steel above… I’m not holding my breath.

Tomorrow: Welcome… Phantom Lady!
