Superman #23.3 – H’el #1

You know a Superman comic is in trouble when Zod is a more attractive character than Jor-El. But that’s what we get in this Villains Month special focusing on H’el, possibly the worst bad guy introduced in the New 52. H’el has been thrust into the past of Krypton, a decade or so before its […]

Here’s a H’el on Earth tie-in without an appearance by the titular antagonist. No, this issue focuses on Lex Luthor as Superman searches for insight that may help him beat the supposed Kryptonian. Along for the ride is Superboy, and the clone proves an object of fascination for Luthor after fighting his way into the […]
