In order not to give any spoilers I’ll just stick to general terms.
I enjoyed that the comic book starts with Justice League and some humorous exchanges between it’s members. The general idea of the villain in this comic book, that is mentioned on the back-cover, Hordr, is interesting – they try to find out the biggest secret of the person and control them using it – usual blackmail? But it seems more to be at the line of surveillance and security issues and instead of just releasing a secret (or secret documents for that matter) to the public Hordr uses it for it’s profit.
I didn’t really like the part that Lois Lane played in the book.
My major issue with this comic book was the name of Superman’s new power – “solar flare” – if there’s a flare on a different star, it’s a stellar flare, I’d be fine with Superman’s flare…
