CUSTOMER REVIEWS AND SCORES


This comic completes “The Death of Superman” storyline. It provides an origin story on Doomsday and belongs to your ’90s Superman collection.

The comic stands out because of its fast pace and the urgency of the storyline. This is Superman at his most vulnerable and confronting his mortality. Doomsday is depicted as a threat not even the Man of Steel can overcome on his own power. The comic definitely changes the DC Universe status quo by modifying the hierarchy of power.

This product has excellent reviews and has 26 ratings with an average customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5. There is a great satisfaction with the product.

One customer review said: “I’ve been fascinated by this story since I first read it. I ordered this book for my niece to get her on board with what to me is the greatest story ever told in comic book history.

This story is actually the sequel to the classic Death Of Superman trade paperback. In this collection they go back and tell how the aliens created Doomsday.”

The reviews were overall very positive with 3 negative reviews. A problem cited by a negative review was the poor writing: “When is someone going to write Superman so that it does not sound like the same writers that were writing for him in the 1930’s? This book is full of the same cornball dialogue that has become a plague throughout Superman’s career. Superman grew up human – why not make him sound like it? This book does allow us to see a more human side to Superman – one with fears and an eroding self-confidence. The problem is that this unique storyline is overshadowed by the grade school, dumb it down writing. The story also uses the old fail safe, when it doubt make it Kryptonian safety net. ”

Overall, this comic was great.

CONCLUSION


POSITIVE:

  • Paperback format available.
  • Sequel to “The Death Of Superman.”

NEGATIVE:

  • Poor writing.

OUR PRODUCT REVIEW RATING:


I recommend this Paperback as an action-packed sequel to “The Death Of Superman.”

TEAM-UPS

THE JLA ARE BATTLING EPOCH ACROSS TIME WITH HIS CHRONO-CUBE

In ‘JLA/WildC.A.T.s.’ (1997), the JLA and WildC.A.T.s. crossover for the first time. The issue begins with Kid Flash – Wally West, who is to become the Flash – meeting Epoch for the first time. Kid Flash attempts to combust Epoch’s feet by vibrating the air molecules with his fingers. However, Epoch’s armor is 41st century technology.

When Epoch is about to kill Kid Flash, the JLA shows up. Flash wrests all the projectiles at superspeed. Epoch comments that the team has taken control of his Chrono-Cube. Claiming to be a 4D man, Epoch reaches billions of years into the future, and hits Superman with red solar energy. Being a being of pure energy now, Superman survives the attack unscathed. Epoch disappears vowing to destroy the superheroes’ ancestors in the past.

In 'JLA/WildC.A.T.s.' (1997), in 65,000,000 B.C., Epoch encounters a soliton that enhances his suit and allows him to use the Chrono Cube as a power source.

The JLA battle Epoch across the timestream. In 14,000 B.C., Green Lantern saves a distant relative from Epoch. When Flash attempts to reach him, Epoch says his advanced technology makes him slow down to a crawl. In 65,000,000 B.C., at the time of the dinosaurs’ extinction, Epoch encounters a soliton that enhances his armor and enables him to steal the Chrono-Cube as power source.

The JLA end up in 33 AD. Meanwhile, Superman and Green Lantern scan the Earth for the power source and discover it buried in limestone. Then, the JLA activate the drive mechanism with Green Lantern’s power ring focusing all their willpower. They end up transported to the Wildstorm Universe.

In 'JLA/WildC.A.T.s.' (1997), in 33 A.D., the JLA use Green Lantern's power ring to focus their willpower to power the drive mechanism.

TEAM-UP OF THE ’90s DECADE: JLA/WILDC.A.T.s. vs THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS

Eventually, Superman and Mister Majestic are able to settle their differences. The JLA/WildC.A.T.s. teams-up to dispatch the Seven Deadly Sins that had been destroying the Wildstorm Universe. During the battle, Mister Majestic agrees with Void to help return the Justice League home otherwise both universes will be destroyed.

Void takes Green Lantern into voidspace. There, she determines Epoch’s dark nova cracked time “into two parallel waves; two separate histories were created.”1 Void explains the JLA’s technology brought them to the wrong time: to the WildC.A.T.s.’ 1997. In order for the entities in voidspace to help, Green Lantern must teach them how to create light constructs. Using her technology, Void is able “to punch a hole through voidspace. A bridge.”1

IN A FINAL BATTLE, THE JLA AND WILDC.A.T.s. TAKE DOWN EPOCH’S OMEGA ATTRACTOR WITH THE CHRONO-CUBE

The JLA and WildC.A.T.s. travel back to the DC Universe. There, the JLA find out they have been away for five days. The heroes find Epoch has merged with the Omega Attractor, a living computer and bomb from the 68th century. With the Omega Attractor, Epoch has access to weapons across centuries. He uses it to deploy weapons to enslave the world and imprison superheroes on the moon. His plan is to turn Earth “into a vast time-traveling time engine powered by its human slave population.”

The JLA and WildC.A.T.s. team-up to take down Epoch’s citadel. Superman tells Maul his plan. He tells Maul to grow large enough to take down the citadel. In fact, to account for Maul’s mindlessness, a burst of electricity to the right motor neurons should return Maul to his normal size within 30 seconds. Maul succeeds. Since the WildC.A.T.s. are not in Epoch’s database, Superman sends them to take him down. Meanwhile, the JLA are working on the Chrono-Cube. Eventually, Epoch is defeated. The JLA program the Chrono-Cube to create a temporal prison cell around Epoch. Finally, the WildC.A.T.s. return home.

In 'JLA/WildC.A.T.s.' (1997), Maul destroys Epoch's citadel in 30 seconds.

2010s MILES MORALES STORYLINES RANKED BEST TO GOOD

STAR RATINGS:

Best: 5 to 4.5 stars.

Good: 4 to 3 stars.

Bad: 2.5 to 2 stars.

Worst: 1.5 to 0 stars.

BEST: ‘ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN COMICS’ (2011).

In ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ #1-5.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

While Slott was doing his mainstream run on Spider-Man, star writer gave us a hit series in ‘Ultimate Spider-Man Comics.’ After killing the Ultimate Spider-Man/Peter Parker, Bendis gave us a new Ultimate Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It is safe to say, Miles is the new, vibrant Spider-Man for Generation Z.

From the beginning, the first five issues tell the origin story of Miles Morales to becoming Spider-Man. At first glance, an up-and-coming youth from a troubled family. In reality, Miles wants to do the right thing and make it up the ladder in life. Surprisingly, Miles wins the lottery into a New York charter school. However, when an accident occurs, Miles life is changed and he becomes the hero he was meant to be.

Without a doubt, the dialogue is appropriate for the audience and though Miles and Genke are teenagers, they are aware of the superhero lifestyle: the young, good guy gets powers, defeats bad guy, saves people and gets the girl. In fact, it sounds like a formulaic Hollywood story which gets amplified in the animated movie. What makes the story work is the diversity, strength and earnestness of the characters. In the end, Bendis’ work shines and he is able to play up the characters’ chemistry with precision.

Overall, this storyline is definitely recommended to read before or after playing Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS4.

BEST: “SPIDER-VERSE” (2015).

Collects “Spider-Verse.”

Rating: 5 out of 5.

“Spider-Verse” (2015) has to be one of the most satisfying Dan Slott’s runs on ‘Amazing Spider-Man’. Juliana Failde at CBR.com recommended the storyline in 10 Spider-Man Story Arcs Every Fan Should Read. It is the inspiration for the Golden Globe animated movie “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” with Miles Morales as the titular character.

In an interview with CBR.com, Dan Slott revealed his inspiration for the storyline. Creatively, Slottt was to tell his version of the plot from the video game “Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions.” As matter of fact, it involved an artifact called the Tablet of Order and Chaos which threatened the lives of Spider-Man, Spider-Man Noir, Ultimate Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2099.

“Spider-Verse” is more a Peter Parker story than a Miles Morales story. The crossover event is ambitious and features the Spider-Men from the Marvel multiverse across continuity. There are touching and bonding moments. Though Spider-Man and Miles Morales have few panels together, their moments are bonding times. Spider-Man emerges as a leader capable of leading a team on a multiversal scale and Miles is a functional member of the team.

Anyone looking for a Miles Morales’-centric storyline would be misguided from the video games and the animated movies. At the same time, this is a crossover event not to miss out.

Database Comics

CHECK OUT THE REVIEW: ’00s BATMAN GRAPHIC NOVELS RANKED BEST TO WORST.

GOOD: ‘SPIDER-MEN’ (2012).

Collects ‘Spider-Men’ #1-5.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

‘Spider-Men’ was Brian Bendis’ five-issue mini-series on the first crossover between the mainstream Spider-Man/Peter Parker and the Ultimate Spider-Man/Miles Morales. In continuity, it follows the death of Ultimate Peter Parker and the appearance of Miles Morales. In the storyline, the mainstream Spider-Man meets the new Ultimate Spider-Man.

In fact, the plot is simple but fun: In battle with Mysterio, the mainstream Spider-Man has crossed over to the Ultimate universe through an interdimensional vortex. Though, there are initial parallels between the mainstrem Spider-Man/Peter Parker and the Ultimate Spider-Man/Miles Morales in the first two issues. Forward, the plot immediately goes to center on Peter Parker and his impact as the previous Ultimate Spider-Man. Moreover, the plot progresses quickly towards its resolution and there are heart-warming moments with the Peter Parker family.

Previously, Sara Pichelli collaborated her art with Bendis on ‘Unltimate Comics Spider-Man.’ The two collaborate again on this series. Similarly, Pichelli’s pencils and inking translate well on digital printing. In truth, they lend to the Ultimate line of Marvel comics which pushes the envelope, upgrades superheroes and supervillains and at the same time caters to a younger audience. In the end, Pichelli’s pencils and ink are rough, not very expressive and to the point.

Overall, “Spider-Men” stands out mostly because it is focused, a-propos and serves to grant legitimacy to the new Ultimate Spider-Man, none other than Miles Morales.

’80s HE-MAN STORYLINES RANKED BEST TO GOOD

STAR RATINGS:

Best: 5 to 4.5 stars.

Good: 4 to 3 stars.

Bad: 2.5 to 2 stars.

Worst: 1.5 to 0 stars.

BEST: ‘DC COMICS PRESENTS’ (1982) #47.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

‘DC Comics Presents’ was a series that featured Superman teaming-up with a different hero each issue. And oh boy, did they hit the ball in the park with this one! This issue is a kind of “What If” first team-up between Superman and He-Man.

We get our answers to what would happen if He-Man ever fought Superman. In their first encounter in DC history, Superman is brought from Earth to Eternia through a dimensional portal created by cosmic storm clouds. Skeletor is at one of his attacks at Castle Greyskull as he possesses half of the Power Sword! He-Man gets summoned by the Goddess and Superman travels to the strange world of Eternia.

This is a classic ’80s story with colors and pencils by Curt Swan. A more vintage art that favors bigger upper bodies and smaller legs. If you are a fan of the artist, this is classic Curt Swan. The fun, the action and the adventure belong in your ’80s He-Man collection.

This story is very reverent of both characters showing what makes each character work in the ’80s: He-Man, Man-At-Arms, Teela and the colorful cast of characters; the Superman/Clark Kent alter ego reminiscent of Christopher Reeve’s comedic tones. Both characters are true to themselves and form a formidable duo. Definitely a favorite story.

BEST: ‘MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE’ (1982).

Collects ‘Masters Of The Universe’ #1-3.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Paul Kupperberg and George Tuska’s three-issue series ‘Masters of The Universe’ may exemplify He-Man in the ’80s. At its best, He-Man deals with science fiction and fantasy themes comparable to Star Wars and Conan in the decade.

The world of ‘Masters of The Universe’ blends magic and science and figures the fantasy characters heading on a quest in order to save the Goddess. As matter of fact, ‘Masters of The Universe’ stands out because of the straight-forward natures of the quest. In some sense, what makes the comic work for the time period is the cartoony nature of the characters, which seem very well like one-dimensional characters: He-Man, Teela, Stratos and Man-At-Arms fight for good; whereas, Skeletor fights for Evil. The characters do not change.

The foci of the story are action and adventure. The adventure spans Eternia and the universe, from land, to sea, to space, to parallel dimensions. He-Man and co. fight snakes, dragons, demons, Beastmen, extra-dimensional creatures and even Skeletor. The action and the adventure are a thrill and are the parts that work the best in the comic. This is what He-Man is best at.

This is certainly a worthy addition to your He-Man and Masters of The Universe ’80s collection, with a blend of adventure, action, magic, and suspense.

GOOD: ‘HE-MAN AND THE POWER SWORD’ (1982).

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

“He-Man and The Power Sword” (1982) is the first of four Masters of The Universe miniature storybooks that accompanied the Mattel toyline. The storybook is clearly promotional material and serves as an introduction to He-Man and MoTU.

The storybook reads like a fairy tale. The water color art and the hyper-muscular lines of the characters creates the idea of legend and immortality. He-Man appears as a barbaric warrior who does not fear overwhelming foes and keeps fighting no matter the odds. The pacing is quick and focuses on the action, not the characterization. The plot is simple and straight-forward reminiscent of classic legends.

The storybook is aimed at children’s stories and works as a first introduction to the character.
