Action Comics #986 review

When last we met Superman and Lex Luthor, the latter was in position to kill the former, his mind taken over by the hi-tech head bugs of The Machinist.

Superman #16 review

Superman has allowed himself to be captured by the monstrous villain known as Prophecy. As it turns out, in his own mind, Prophecy is a good guy.  Superman’s not convinced, given he’s had his powers drained and is tossed into a big hole where previously defeated Supermen are being forced to dig their own graves.
