The Quintessence are surveying Earth Omega. Wonder Woman had sensed a new threat and the Quintessence hid from her their imprisoning it on Earth Omega. Suddenly, true form Darkseid attacks the Quintessence from behind, killing them.
We will use the energy of Doctor Manhattan to estimate the Quintessence’s power.
THE QUINTESSENCE AND DOCTOR MANHATTAN
In Dark Nights: Death Metal (2020) #1, Wonder Woman meets Wally West in Themyscira which has been turned into a prison hell. Wally is powered by Doctor Manhattan’s Positive energy and explains the Justice League’s battle against Perpetua: Perpetua created the Prime multiverse using Crisis energy and the Positive energy from Doctor Manhattan granted to the Justice League by the Quintessence was not sufficient. Ultimately, Perpetua won the battle.
Since the Quintessence is able to manipulate the Positive energy at the multiversal level, its Energy Projection is at least Multiversal Level.
In Watchmen (1986), Doctor Manhattan claims to be able to see his past, present and future timeline. Doctor Manhattan’s main super power is to be present to all points in time in the DC multiverse.
Doctor Manhattan has the power of nigh-omnipresence since he is present to the past, the present and the future. This indicates Doctor Manhattan is likely present 20 billion years ago in the Prime Earth multiverse created by Perpetua. To calculate his nigh-omnipresence is simply to estimate the total energy of Perpetua’s Prime Earth multiverse. Since it extends to the Sixth Dimension, that energy is infinite.
True form Darkseid freed himself and killed the Quintessence in a surprise attack.
True form Darkseid generated a Nigh-Omnipotent-Level of Energy Projection.

Originally, Director Ava Duvernay and Mister Miracle writer Tom King co-wrote the script for the movie. In fact, the New Gods movie had begun filming. In 2021, New Gods was removed from the DC Extended Universe film slate with little explanation.
In our Reading Guide, we show why the Kirby-created franchise is space opera and can take the DC Extended Universe to the next level. Here is our New Gods chronology since their first appearance in 1970 containing the mainstream continuity titles.
DARKSEID’S FIRST APPEARANCE (1970)
*Collect Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen #133-152.
Before debuting the New Gods, legendary writer and artist Jack Kirby introduced new characters to the series Superman’s Pal, Jimmy Olsen called the Newsboys Legion. At the head was Morgan Edge, who headed Galaxy Broadcasting System, owned the Daily Planet where Jimmy Olsen and Clark Kent worked. Secretly, he operated a criminal organization called Inter-gang. In order to get rid of both Clark and Jimmy, he sent Jimmy on an assignment to uncover the secrets of the Mountain of Judgment.
Namely, Jimmy and The Newboys, filmed their journey through the Zoomway. Indeed, they discovered that the Mountain of Judgment was actually a gargatuan space vehicle. There, they discovered a scientific society called the Hairies led by a man called Jude. Fortunately, the Newsboys discovered that Morgan Edge planted alpha-bombs in their cameras to destroy the Hairies. And he was doing so in service of his alien master, Darkseid. Though the plan failed.
In reality, the Hairies were not New Gods. Instead, they were genetically modified humans by a secret government organization called the DNA Project. Indeed, it was run by the original Newsboy Legion, who were the parents of the current Newsboys. The Project had mastered the human genome and could clone humans from cells. In Post-Crisis Continnuity, The DNA Project was used under the name of the Cadmus Project.
In 1971, New Gods debuted. In the first issue, Jack Kirby introduced the New God Orion, who with his friend Lightray came from the paradise New Genesis. Together, they lived on the hovering city called Supertown where Highfather, in contact with the Source received messages on the wall.
The Source prophesied that in order for Orion to stop Darkseid’s quest for the Anti-Life Equation, he had to journey to Apokolips then to Earth. On Apokolips, Orion found four people whom Darkseid believed held a fragment of the Anti-Life Equation. He freed them, then returned them to Earth. On his travels to Earth, Darkseid used Mother Box to hide his face and adopt a civilian identity called O’Ryan.
Originally, the war between New Genesis and Apokolips started when Darkseid’s uncle, Steppenwolf, murdered Avia, Izaya’s wife. In retaliation, the ruler of New Genesis invaded Apokolips which was ruled by Queen Heggra, Darkseid’s mother. In the shadows, Darkseid gave Metron Element X so that he would assist. In return, Metron created the Boom Tube which Darkseid used to teleport to Apokolips. Desperate, Izaya pled and the Source evolved him into Highfather. Then, a truce was made where both rulers would exchange their sons, Scott Free and Orion.
After the Crisis On Infinite Earths reboot, John Ostrander and comic legend John Byrne re-launched the New Gods. Though, the New Gods continuity was maintained. In Legends, Darkseid schemes against the heroes of Earth to undermine their credibility. To this end, the God of evil unleashes two monsters from Apokoips, Macro-Man and Brimstone. Prominently, the Justice League launched its high profile series.
In the crossover event, the New Gods begin to feature prominently in Superman titles. Importantly, Darkseid transported Superman to Apokolips with his Omega Effect. There, he was transported to Armagetto where he was an amnesiac though a hero to the Lowlies. Orion and Lightray traveled to Apokolips to rescue Superman who had been indoctrinated by Granny Goodness. With the Mother Box, the sentient computer, Superman was restored. After a fight with Darkseid, Superman managed to outrace th Omega Effect, hitting Darkseid. Then, the Man of Steel was sent back to Earth.
In 1989, New Gods debuted its third series. Particularly, it followed the events after the Cosmic Odyssey four-issue limited series. The new series centers on the struggle between New Genesis and the Insect Empire for Supertown’s governing power. In addition, it tells of Apokolips’ attempts to continue its war on Earth. Again, the central protagonist is Orion of NewGenesis.
THE NEW GODS (1995-97)
*Collects New Gods #1-15
Legendary artist and writer John Byrne debuts on New Gods vol. 4. The premise of the series is the end of Darkseid’s quest for the Anti-Life Equation. Now convinced that it does not exist, the ruler of Apokolips seeks to control the Source. After unleashing a wave of darkness across the universe, Darkseid’s plan is foiled by Orion. In an anticipated showdown, Orion heads into space to confront his father. In the Source, the New Gods duel until one final victor emerges: Orion.
Catastrophically, Darkseid’s death sent shockwaves through New Genesis and Apokolips. Indeed, both planets were destabilized by the imbalance between Good and Evil. In order to prevent the unleashing of the Old God S’ivaa, Highfather started a self-imprisonment in an asylum. However, S’ivaa who slumbered in the eternal sea, was free! After he began his dance of universal destruction, Highfather recruited Superman and Orion to hold it off. Successfully, S’ivaa was imprisoned on the Source Wall though Darkseid and Highfather melted in its fire.
JACK KIRBY’S FOURTH WORLD (1997)
*Collect Jack Kirby’s Fourth World #1-8, Genesis #1-4, Jack Kirby’s Fourth World #9-12, Darkseid Villains #1, Jack Kirby’s Fourth World #13-20, New Gods Secret Files #1.
Legendary artist and writer John Byrne created a unified origin story for the New Gods and the Old Gods. In the beginning, there was a First World seedless and ormless. Then, there was a Second World home of the Old Gods. After, the Godwave seeded the universe with divinity and the potential for super powers. Also, there was a Third World where the gods having attained adulthood warred for thousands of years. Then, it exploded into two planets, Apokolips and New Genesis called the Fourth World.
JUSTICE LEAGUE (2011)
*Collect Justice League #1-6.
In 2011, the New 52 re-launch rebooted the DC Universe with 52 parallel universes. For this reason, many characters’ origins were changed while others were removed. In the new origin of the Justice League, Darkseid invades Prime Earth in its first alien invasion with his arm of parademons.
In 2012, Darkseid continues his conquest of the DC Multiverse. On Earth-2, he sends Steppenwolf to conquer it. There, he finds opposition from Superman though Wonder Woman loves him. On Apokolips, Big Barda falls in love with Scot Free and the two escape. They are randed as traitors. In the battle for Earth-2, Steppenwolf impales Wonder Woman and kills Superman. After the invasion, the Earth is left cratered and Steppenwolf and his armes escape to Earth-0.
JUSTICE LEAGUE: DARKSEID WAR (2015)
In 2015, acclaimed writer Geoff Johns worked on the final storyline of the New 52. Justice League: Darkseid War is a masterful crossover that adds to the New Gods mythology. According to Amazon prophecy, the child of Darkseid and Myrina Black is going to usher a new darkness on Earth. Known as Grail, she summons the Anti-Monitor in order to conquer Earth and kill Darkseid. In his quest for the Anti-Life Equation, Darkseid invades Earth though it leads to fatality. Caught between a godly war, Wonder Woman and the Justice League must save Prime Earth or become gods!
KIRBY SPECIALS (2017)
*Collect The Newsboy Legion and Boy Commandos Special #1, Manhunter Special #1, The Sandman Special #1, The New Gods Special #1, Darkseid Special #1, The Black Racer and Shilo Norman Special #1.

In the Post-Crisis continuity, Superman has been the Justice League of America’s public figure as well as its tactical commander. In fact, Superman’s leadership commands respect from his peers. In contrast, Wonder Woman has played a similar role, particularly due to her expertise in war and her role as a diplomatic embassador for Themyscira.
Let’s list five reasons why Superman is the Justice League’s true inspiration and five reasons why Wonder Woman’s leadership uncovers deception and sees the vision of the DC Universe.
10. IN THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN, WONDER WOMAN PROTECTS THE LEAGUE AGAINST DOOMSDAY
The Death Of Superman (2018) is the 11th installment in the DC Animated Movie Universe. In the movie, the monster named Doomsday is on a rampage across the United States and it is up to the Justice League to stop it. When the situation seems hopeless, Wonder Woman arises to fight the monster. Though she eventually loses, her leadership causes Superman to go all-out.
9. IN JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK: APOKOLIPS WAR, SUPERMAN LEADS THE LEAGUE INTO WAR AGAINST APOKOLIPS
Justice League Dark: Apokolips War (2020), is the final installment in the DC Universe Animated Original Movies. At the beginning of the movie, Superman formulates a plan to invade Apokolips in order to prevent war on Earth. But Superman and the Justice League Dark are captured. After the Justice League’s forces are destroyed, John Constantine enacts a plan to save them. Finally, Superman is freed from Darkseid’s control on Apokolips. In the finale, an amped Superman takes on Darkseid toe-to-toe.
8. IN SUPERMAN: SACRIFICE, WONDER WOMAN FREES SUPERMAN FROM MAXWELL LORD’S MIND-CONTROL
In Superman: Sacrifice, Superman has attacked Batman at the Watchtower. After, the Justice League discovers that Maxwell Lord mind-controls Superman and has taken control of Brother Eye. Violently, Superman attacks the League and escapes. Now, with her powers of Truth, Wonder Woman tracks him down and locates Checkmate. After a vicious battle, Wonder Woman kills Maxwell to free Superman from his delusions. Really, a controversial decision that created a crisis of leadership in the Justice League. Importantly, it contributed to Infinite Crisis.
7. IN INFINITE CRISIS, SUPERMAN STOPS SUPERBOY-PRIME WITHOUT KILLING
In Infinite Crisis, the 52 universes in the DC multiverse are threatened of destruction by Superboy-Prime and Alexander Luthor Jr. Indeed, the villains seek to destroy the 52 earths to restore Earth-Prime, the perfect Earth. In a crisis of leadership, Earth-One and Earth-Two Supermen rise to save the multiverse. On the Green Lantern planet Mogo, a depowered Earth-One Superman defeats a depowered Superboy-Prime after flying through a red sun, delivering a speech that inspired fans.
6. IN ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, WONDER WOMAN LEADS THE LEAGUE IN BATTLE
In Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Wonder Woman shows why she is the League’s tactical leader. With Superman inactive, Wonder Woman leads the League in battle against Steppenwolf and the parademons. When Batman decides to sacrifice himself to drive Steppenwolf’s army away, Wonder Woman rallies the League to help him. Again, she saves Batman from death at the hands of Apokoliptian armies. In the end, she decapitates Steppenwolf with her magical sword.
5. IN BATMAN V. SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN SACRIFICES HIMSELF TO KILL DOOMSDAY
Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is the second movie in Snyder’s trilogy. In the movie, Superman and Batman clash after Lex Luthor stages a political intrigue. In the finale, both heroes must fight with Wonder Woman against Doomsday, Luthor’s mutated Zod. In order to save the Earth and Lois Lane, Superman sacrifices himself, killing Doomsday with a kryptonite spear.
4. IN DARK NIGHTS: DEATH METAL, WONDER WOMAN CREATES THE FIRST ANTI-CRISIS
In Dark Nights: Death Metal, the DC heroes must stop an invasion from The Batman Who Laughs and the Dark multiverse. In order to stop the dangers to the multiverse once and for all, Wonder Woman leads the heroes into the first Anti-Crisis. After one final battle, she defeats The Batman Who Laughs in the death sun. At the end, the DC multiverse is restored with no frontiers and all the crises in continuity remembered.
3. IN FINAL CRISIS, SUPERMAN RESTORES THE DC MULTIVERSE
In Final Crisis, Darkseid finally conquered the Anti-Life Equation. Now, he set out to create a Fifth World on New Earth. During the crisis, even Nil is threatened by destruction by the Equation. In the end, Darkseid destroys the entirety of the DC multiverse, past, present and future. Only a group of heroes and civilians remain in space on the Watchtower. Proving to be the Justice League’s true leader, Superman uses his remaining stores of solar energy to activate the Miracle Machine and restore the DC multiverse. Though it was not the last crisis, since the multiverse was rebooted again after Flashpoint.
2. WONDER WOMAN REFUSES TO ASCEND AMONG THE QUINTESSENCE TO REMAIN HUMAN
With Infinite Frontier (2021) #0, the Quintessence shows Wonder Woman a vision of the new DC multiverse. Then, they congratulate the heroine and propose her to ascend into their ranks as a goddess. However, Wonder Woman declines to preserve her humanity and fight the impending darkness.
1. SUPERMAN INSPIRES PEOPLE BY REVEALING HIS SECRET IDENTITY
Perhaps, the greatest reason why Superman is the Justice League‘s best leader is his example. In Superman (2020) #18, Superman finally comes out and reveals his secret identity to the public. Though his peers questioned his decision and Batman feared mind control. At the same time, the decision also worsened his hero status. Definitely, a decision of momentous proportions that changed the status quo and shows how much the Man of Steel can inspire people around the world.
In today’s article, we compare two fighters that are the cream of the crop in terms of strength, power, rage… and yes, fighting!
Incredibly, let’s introduce the battle to end all battles: Doomsday, the Ultimate vs The Incredible Hulk. Though these two monsters have yet to face in a crossover, fans have salivated at the thought of a vicious brawl.
Really, both are an A-list hero and a B-list villain in their respective universes. Namely, the legendary Doomsday is famous for being the monster who killed Superman. For his part, Hulk is the Strongest Avenger and only keeps getting stronger.
Though both monsters have evolved multiple forms, let’s compare their strength in terms of their strongest power levels. Hence, we compare Hunter/Prey (HP) Doomsday with Immortal Hulk (IMH).
Generally, formidability is the ability to compete, match and defeat a foe despite overwhelming odds. Usually, formidability indicates a warrior’s ability to defeat a stronger, more powerful and more resourceful enemy.
For this reason, it is almost interchangeable with the Fighting Skills Level. For example, this explains why Batman is able to defeat Killer Croc or Bane who are in fact stronger or more powerful.
Using tactics, training, technology, resources and intel, Batman is usually able to take on more powerful opponents.
Before we rank our two heroes, let’s list some rules.
First, the hero should be able to consistently defeat opponents above their strength class or power level.
In terms of power level or fighting skills, they should have few or no weaknesses.
Consistently, they should face quality opponents that are at least able to destroy a city.
Finally, they should have fewer limitations in power, strength, ability or intelligence.
First, we will compare them in Strength Class, Weaknesses, Quality Opponents and Limitations. At the top, you can check their Formidability Scores. To note, all scores are rated out of a 100.

When Doomsday comes back to life, he evolves an adaptation to Darkseid’s Omega Effect which can no longer harm him. And what we estimate to be a Universal-Level of Super-Strength. Theoretically, there is no upper limit to his Super-Strength.
On the other hand, Immortal Hulk, also has the novel power of Resurrection. In fact, he theoretically cannot die. Or in better words, he resurrects from every death. In the first issue, IMH resurrects from a gunshot wound to the head and finds he can smell lies.
In effect, IMH is immortal and can only be killed by the being who is the source of his power, the One-Below-All. Really, Immortal Hulk has Boundless Super-Strength since he can defeat Gods or Abstracts.
For the most part, Doomsday’s weakness is properly speaking Universal Forces. In the comic, Doomsday is felled by Darkseid’s Omega Effect. Because of the OE’s powers and its relation to the chaotic side of the Source, the Omega Effect is certainly a power of entropy.
Really, the only way to defeat H/P Doomsday is to subject him to the powers of entropy. At the end of the comic, Superman transports Doomsday to the end of the universe with Waverider’s help, ending his murderous rampage.
In some sense, Immortal Hulk is protected by a Divine Enchantment. As a host of the One-Below-All, who rules Hell, he comes back from every death. Though he can be wounded, pierced and even killed, he always resurrects. Effectively, his Weakness lasts as long as the Divine Enchantment.
Generally, though both warriors are evenly matched in strength, IMH may lack the specific power necessary to finally overcome H/P Doomsday’s onslaught. As Doomsday evolves, he may land the killing blow that severes his connection to the Green Door.
Generally, Immortal Hulk has a decisive advantage in this department. Over a more developed series, IMH faces multiple opponents such as Sasquatch, the Avengers and even the One-Below-All.
In Immortal Hulk Vol 1 13, Immortal Hulk faces the One-Below-All and his horde of monsters in Hell. Importantly, he has to deal with his father who disowns him as a child of evil. Decisively, Hulk swats him away dispersing at the same time, the One-Below-All.
In the Marvel hierarchy, the One-Above-All, is the God of the Marvel Multiverse. Oppositely, the One-Below-All is below and is unthinking monster that needs gamma-ray powered hosts in the Marvel multiverse.
Certainly, IMH’s Quality Opponents are God or Abstract-Level.
The Injustice: Gods Among Us video game series has been both a financial and a critical success for WB Games.
Based on the popular comic franchise titled Injustice: Gods Among Us, the series centers on the events after Joker brutally kills Lois Lane, Superman becomes evil and sets up a tyrannical Regime on Earth. And Batman forms a coalition of heroes to oppose Superman’s Regime.
In the Injustice 2 sequel, the Insurgency has stopped Superman and his forces. However, they enlist the evil Superman‘s help when Brainiac attempts to collect the Earth.
According to reviews by MetaCritic, the sequel has improved gameplay and mechanics though other reviews criticize the plot. At MetaCritic, the PS4 and Xbox One versions have 87/100 and 89/100.
Since we are interested in the fighting game, let’s rate the main characters’ fighting techniques and how they compare to the comic. For the most part, we are interested in strength, speed, and damage.
So, from our video above, let’s find out which Injustice 2 character has the most comic-accurate fighting technique.
Generally, Darkseid’s fighting moves are inspired from the classic Bronze Age version though his costume and powerset take some inspiration from the New 52.
Really, Darkseid is imposing and his fighting moves make for some economy of movements, with strength, power and size. With his imposing physique, Darkseid can deal up to 40 hits of combos with at more than two-thirds of your life bar.
Certainly, his Omega Beams are his finishing moves showing that he may be the best for defensive-minded players who like to deal maximum damage in a few moves.
4. COMIC-ACCURATE: BATMAN
Usually, Batman uses shadows, deception and technology to defeat his opponents. In fact, his fighting stance is usually a crouching, mysterious and exploiting technique.
Since Injustice is influenced by the Elseworld and its armored characters, Batman’s fighting techniques show a more offensive-minded and open-combat Batman. In fact, his techniques reflects the comic more accurately.
And Batman’s grappling hook is the difference-maker. Effectively, he uses it offensively to trap his opponent and throw him/her across distances. Certainly, moves reminiscent of Batman v Superman. With 40 hits, Batman can cost more than two-thirds of your life.
3. COMIC-ACCURATE: DOCTOR FATE’S SPELL OF JUDGMENT
With the Black Adam movie, Doctor Fate and the JSA are getting some interest. Though the powerhouse is not well-known, his appearance in the game is very comic-accurate. In fact, Doctor Fate is a playable anti-hero in the game.
And this video game separates itself with the improved gameplay and design. Though Doctor Fate’s Spell of Judgment combos only deal 14 Hits, they damage about two-thirds of a life bar. What is special about his fighting techniques is that they accurately reflect the comics.
VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE
2. COMIC-ACCURATE: SUPERMAN’S SPEEDING BULLET
Perhaps, one disappointment from Injustice 2 is the downplay in Superman’s combos in terms of hits, strength and damage. The first game featured Superman‘s Flying Ground Smash and other special moves.
However, our game shows moves more consistent with Superman’s fighting techniques Post-Crisis. Usually, Superman uses a lot of haymakers, crosses and bullrushes at super speed. At the same time, this reflects an aged and powered-down Superman.
Neverthless, the fallen hero still deals about half the damage in 14 hits.
VERDICT: MORE COMIC-ACCURATE
1. COMIC-ACCURATE: FLASH’S LIGHTNING PUNCHES
Before, we published an article about Flash’s lightning punches. In fact, the article asked how Flash’s punches can hurt Superman. In Injustice 2, the gameplay answers the question.
Without a doubt, Flash sports the best fighting techniques of any character in the game. Certainly, the improved mechanics make Flash’s lightning punches flow better. And really, Injustice 2 may be the most-accurate portrayal of Flash’s super speed.
From the gameplay, to the fighting techniques to the super speed, Flash simply appears and disappears like a bolt of lightning. In 20 Hits, the hero is able to beat a third of your life in damage. Really, Flash sits at the top and faithfully his special moves display the comics.

This product has 1 global rating with an average customer review rating of 4 out of 5.
The customer review said: “I haven’t been a huge fan of the way DC has been using Darkseid the last half decade or so. For God knows what reason, they have altered his iconic appearance to make him much more generic looking. He’s also considerably more active and hands on which diminishes his intimidation factor. I was delighted to see that at about the midway point in the comic Darkseid transforms back into his classic look. I haven’t really followed Darkseid’s evolution since he died and came back but great credit to Dan Abnett for bringing him back to where he started.”
There are no negative global ratings.
Overall, this comic was great.

BENDIS IS PENNING THE JUSTICE LEAGUE VS LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES MINI-SERIES
Recently, DC Comics chose superstar writer and artist Brian Bendis to develop the Legion of Super-Heroes TV show for HBO Max. Really, the writer was elated. Since Dark Nights: Death Metal, DC Comics has rebooted its entire line of comics with Infinite Frontier.
“HBO Max has put me to work on a LEGION OF SUPERHEROES TV SHOW,” Bendis revealed. “At the moment it is being developed as an adult animated show. Can you tell I am jumping up and down about this? I’ve been working on it for a while and last week I was sent to the next phase.”
IT RESTORES THE SILVER AGE ADVENTURES OF SUPERBOY WITH THE LEGION
In Superman (2019) #14, Superboy officially joins the Legion of Super-Heroes. With Rogol Zaar, destroying the Kryptonian houses and the galaxy on the brink of war, Superboy presents a powerful agreement. When the Kryptonians arrive, they tell the factions to cease hostilities. Courageously, Jon Kent tells them that Earth has a system called the United Nations to arbitrate conflicts.
Similarly, they could set up the United Planets. Suddenly, a blue light forms and the Legion appear for the first time since Rebirth. Solemnly, they ask the creator of the United Planets to join the Legion. Previously, we presented a rumor where Superman would become the ambassador of the League of Planets. Here, it is Superboy who eventually joins the Legion of Super-Heroes. Really, this restores the Silver Age Superboy adventures with the Legion.
Certainly, the DC Universe: Rebirth is about legacies, families and traditions. What makes the Legion of Super-Heroes important is because the super-team was formed as a result of Superman’s heroism. In fact, the 31st century has played a determinant role in DC’s major events. Perhaps, from DC One Million, Jon Kent is Superman Secundus
Moreover, Jon becomes Superman after his father leaves for space to fight on Warworld. In Final Crisis, Superman ends up in the 31st century where Brainiac 5 shows him the Miracle Machine. In a few moments, Superman memorizes it in order to re-build it in the 21st century. Later, it is used to restore the DC multiverse. In the end, Superman and the heroes inspire the formation of a utopia on Earth.

Superman and Batman work together to battle evil in many forms.
Critically, Superman/Batman, Vol. 2: Supergirl is the most popular Supergirl origin story in Post-Crisis continuity. Importantly, in an alien contact Supergirl arrives on Earth. And a dangerous menace rises that threatens DC’s Trinity.
Together, writer Jeph Loeb and superstar artists Michael Turner and Peter Steigerwald collaborate on the story. Really, the writing shines on the paranoia of alien invasions.
Nevertheless, the art in the book is characteristic of Loeb’s run on Superman/Batman: muscular, bold, violent. Moreover, Darkseid vs Superman!
Indeed, share this Paperback to fans of Superman and on occasions of anniversaries and Valentine’s Day. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Superman and Batman! And Supergirl!
To begin, Superman/Batman, Vol. 2: Supergirl deals with Supergirl’s most popular origin story. In fact, the Hardcover was a sell-out at the time.
Importantly, as the Girl of Steel causes tensions within DC’s Trinity, a new threat rises. Dangerously, Darkseid has set his sights on Superman’s Kryptonian cousin. And Supergirl must choose between Earth and Apokolips.
The comic is good for your collection. You will definitely marvel at Michael Turner’s strong pencils, the characters’ erotic physiques and the color palette.
COLLECT JEPH LOEB’S AND MICHAEL TURNER’S RUN

This product has 116 global ratings with a customer review rating of 4.7 out of 5.
The customer review said: “Michael Turner’s artwork is the epitome of what comic art should like. In the introduction, Jeph Loeb said that Turner drew the best looking females in all of comics. I’d happen to agree with him. Not only the women look good though. Turner’s Batman is one of the coolest looking versions of Batman ever. Even as much as I love Jim Lee’s art, Turner’s Batman put Lee’s to shame. Like Jim Lee, Turner’s super-detailed work caused him to become one of the hottest artists in comics. It’s really sad that Turner passed away a few years after this volume came out.”
There are seven negative reviews. One negative review pointed the poor plot: “This was a shame. I think supergirl is a cool character and can be done well, but this just makes clear that DC has no idea what to do with her. There is no characterization, no back up characters and the story can only loosely be called a “story.” The art is cool and it seems that is all this book has to offer. It’s a real disappointment, especially after Peter David’s run on the previous Supergirl (linda danvers) which was excellent. Stick with Many Happy Returns, possibly the best supergirl story ever (along with Crisis on Infinite Earths).”
Overall, this comic was good.
