Superman #714 review

Thank you! Thank you Chris Roberson for ending the Grounded storyline in such a way as to leave Superman with a great big smile on his face. Lisa Jennings, the teacher who’s been shadowing Superman on his trip across America, finally makes herself known, endangering Lois to get his attention. Bad move. Superman’s in no […]

So last issue’s scheduled stop in Los Angeles, in which Superman teamed up with Muslim superhero Sharif, was pulled by DC, with one rumour saying it was because Superman rescued a cat from a tree.
