With the execution last issue of adoptive Father Jonathan Kent the now Evil-Superman has crossed ever more unthinkable moral boundaries, as the artificial construct housing Lois Lane's brain patterns The Red Tornado is one example of resurrection with a conscience, as a direct mirror of her the also resurrected Superman highlights the question of Soul by proving in no uncertain terms has no conscience. Only an animated cadaver could be so cold blooded and missing in compassion.
Cradling the devastated Martha Kent The Red Tornado's compassion is self evident - Lois Lane wears her heart, as ever, on her sleeve. But an android with a soul is still a curious object when all she sees is relayed through her Audio/Visuals back the World Army headquarters on Amazon Island. That Lois doesn't find this connection disconcerting and distracting might suggest the artificiality of her awareness, a denial if you will, logic after all would allow her to process and accept her new status-quo, but emotion...?
Whatever the reality of Lois Lane's new existence it is Nicola Scott's subtlety which gives these questions all the more relevance, small details such as this android being able to close eyes in very humanlike grief, indeed so powerful is Lois' personality even a smile is transformed into very genuine affect. If machines can ever achieve life then The Red Tornado project might be said to have fulfilled its potential.


Some pretty deep and probing thoughts, that I'm certain will not be followed up upon. The more real Lois becomes, the more likely she'll become human again somehow.

    Thomas Wayne's actual credentials to be able to be The Batman are still vague, how does a medical Doctor become a tactical genius pray tell, or proficient in advanced stealth and covert operations? One day it may be explained. But surveying the Installation projecting the gateway his ruthlessness and cold calculation is in full effect, willing to simply blast the place to nothingness but aware that this approach my well not work to shut down the portal. Clearly then subterfuge is the order of the day. And with Marella's advice the strategy becomes clear.


I suppose it's because he's Batman? That's not me being coy, either. These days The World's Great Detective and Escape Artist does things simply because he can, as if the outfit bestows the abilities.

Told ya!


It's dead of night in NYC, but I'd been putting off responding to this excellent review for too long. You make great points as all ways, with a singular insight. I planned to respond to the whole bit, but my head keeps hitting the keys. Good show, man.
