A perfectly lackluster issue. There is just too much that needs to happen, in a book jam-packed with characters and situation. Johns is notorious for separating Superman from the rest of the group . . and depowering him somehow. It's not necessarily a bad thing, as his Superman and the Legion of Superheroes was excellent, and Superman #39(vol. 2) was good. However, turning the Justice League into New Gods is story onto itself. Here we have that, a war between the Anti-Monitor and Darkseid, the daughter or Darkseid, and Lex with Superman.

Perhaps the supporting books will provide needed depth, but even then, Johns and DC has a major problem with consistency and continuity.  Superman loses his powers almost immediately on Apokolips.  This has never happened in any continuity, and does need some explanation for two reasons: 1) Superman in N52 continuity has been to Apokolips before without mention of this happening. 2) Superman has been shown in N52 continuity to be able to exert himself for over 5 days with no solar radiation to absorb, and lose only a single bead of sweat.  Unless Darkseid has done something to the atmosphere of Apokolips, ignoring such precedents ruin the story, for me, as it just smacks of sheer laziness.

Luthor throwing Superman into the fire pit is questionable, as again, the fire pits have never been shown to be akin to solar radiation, but moreso nuclear reactors.  Even if this is acceptable, if Superman can charge from sun at its given distance, there is no need to throw him into the fire pit, as he would be charging from it, due to its nature and greater proximity.  Absent thought, it may seem interesting, but apply just a little knowledge, and none of what occurs should be happening.  I have little favour for stories of this nature: those that need a heaping of ignorance to flourish.
