Action Comics 988

This was so much better than Superman 31 last week. "Jor-El" tells a mighty convincing post-Krypton origin story. On the one hand, his retroactively revealed new post-Rebirth canon, here, would make for an important issue - and interesting one. On the other hand, as Kal says, he has been conned quite convincingly in the past most recently by that completely shamworthy other Clark Kent courtesy Mr. Myx. It will be interesting to see which way DC goes with Superman's alleged father and even moreso what new details he will reveal about his cosmic abductor that allegedly saved him from Krypton exploding.

Great cover. Curious variant cover image inference. Servicable inside art.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
