Review by Library Journal Reviews

A great example of the recent trend of combining comics and gaming, this prequel to the video game of the same name shows Superman responding to tragedy by using his power to control the world rather than help it. Other heroes must decide whether to join him or ally themselves with the Batman-led insurgency. (Ongoing series.) [Page 53]. (c) Copyright 2014.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

The Joker focuses his malevolent attention on Superman and Superman's circle of all too mortal friends; in short order Superman stands twice a killer, once as a hapless puppet and once as a vengeful titan. With Lois and the Joker's blood on his hands, the Last Son of Krypton vows to use his power to crush injustice regardless of what secular authorities—or the other heroes—might think of a self-appointed alien dictator. As costumed heroes consider whether they will stand with Superman or the law, Batman has made up his own mind; his decision will splinter the hero world and cost Batman a son. The garish art illustrates a violent world where grim faced icons snarl and lash out at each other; mirth seems reserved for the insane, smiling for the smugly victorious. While the idea of superheroes turned authoritarian despots is a familiar twist, writer Taylor still makes this an addictive soap opera of fights and larger than life characters. (Nov.) [Page ].

Review by Publisher Summary 1

In order to protect everything he holds dear Superman has stopped protecting the world, instead choosing to rule it, and only Batman has the power to stop him before it is to late.
